OK, now that I’ve got your attention…
But really, my point is about those who live on the down side of the intelligence bell curve. A good bit down.
There’s a guy at church, and it’s obvious to everyone I know that he isn’t going to invent a new rocket. And he keeps getting fired. That may or may not have something to do with his knee jerk defense of lying about anything that makes him feel threatened.
But… the point is, in times of old, say 50-60 years ago, a greater percentage of the country was living in rural areas, and a greater percentage was able to make a living of some sort with their backs, not their brains.
With America becoming the “brains” of the world, were we supply the designs and engineering, and say, Malaysia provides the labor, how are people that would have lived off feeding the cattle, driving a tractor, mucking out the pens, etc., supposed to survive in an American urban environment, where even the assembly line worker is supposed to be handling invoices and managing just-in-time delivery of parts?
In short, where is Forest Gump really going to work these days, and I’m not hopeful that this guy falls bass ackwards into money like FG.
Any ideas or philosophizing?
