Looking carefully at that which is unseen.

Word of the moment: NEDS

Neds.

“No Education Delinquents.”

It’s interesting to compare and contrast the view in that article with the view in this one.

The whole purpose of community is that it benefits all of the participants. What the Left generally forgets, though, is that community, like society, is actually better seen as a verb. It’s the interaction between two or more individuals which, ideally, is for the benefit of all parties involved – otherwise why be involved in it? To the extent that neds are not giving anything to the other members of the group, what right do they have to demand – whether by tax or by force (but I repeat myself) – that others give them anything? Individuals have a right to life – but there is nothing that indicates that life should or must come at the expense of another, unless the other wishes to provide that life as a gift, or in exchange for something.

The industrialized nations have, as was pointed out, spent generations breeding up neds – and other parasites. Although the biologic model of sociology is out of vogue, nevertheless the metaphor remains apt: when an entity has more parasites draining it than it can produce for, the entity inevitably dies. A strong entity can last a long time, but death is still inevitable.

Got popcorn?

    The host either dies… or begins to shed parasites.

    Not popcorn… bug spray.

      Exactly. The problem is that some parasites become so entrenched that the host can never get rid of them and death becomes the only possible medical outcome. 😦
