I was joking about loading up the flatbed, actually my feeling is that the folks in the backwoods and hills are far smarter than most of us. I made a joke that follows the logic that somehow back woods people are less educated. I think the opposite is true, those folks have my respect.
We have been raised without the benefit of experiential learning, we learn along the lines of what John was saying about the type of elitist people who are hungry for power so they can make rules. Those type of people are the ones setting curicula in our schools, is really quite alarming if you take a good look at what is going on. So called education is a joke! We learn drivel in rote style and have no real common sense or ability to really live. In the name of civilization we remove all humanity and heart form the process and value so called "education" as the standard for "smart".
Bottom line, I'll take a back woods person with the ability to live off the land any day as a friend over a city clicker who thinks that advertising is truth.
