25. I don't see it as stupidity but as "arrested development"

that masks a hubris that those plentiful "man" jobs and sacrificial "men" of WWII and their martyred women of faith hold dear and where the phrase "you should) and I "MYOB" is their authoritarian king. I've really struggled with the non-evolution in my own family in many of the ways of the white BLUE-COLLAR mindset that refuses to embrace what they see as democratic ideals and ideas to reward the unworthy and shun much of what is required to live in community and with compromise.

Many are also rather new Americans generationally though they weren't pioneers or explorers, never venturing very far into a nation's expeditions into expansion of the mind or freedoms to move forward and those that left the enclaves of their family, church home, etc...were held to be unappreciative of their parents tireless (and BTW ideologically unproductive) efforts despite what they embraced/valued as worthy and needful of their close care and service to themselves, so it indeed looks like "I GOT MINE, FU, and "I LIVE (literally) RIGHT, you don't"; You moved AWAY (abandoning our superior work ethics; your work is WHITE COLLAR and we'll treat it as nothing more than slaving away in the new-fangled mechanic garages and plantations; "YOUR women don't SAH and (horrors) DRIVE, "Where in the world do you get those ideas beyond the arbiter(s) of justice, US?" CURIOSITY (in education) killed the cat but never delivered more mice." That's all good because, "GOD provides what you need (A mind-numbing rat-wheel job in the production line); how dare you want MORE."
