In my interpretation you are linking lack of book smarts to lack of ability to he a good person or a productive member of society. Well I know plenty of smart people who are idiots and plenty of uneducated people who are sharp as a tack. The point is that someone picked on the person and was told why no one bit then you continued to try and degrade the person further. It, along with your trying to call me out as dumb because i didnt take the time to multi quote the whole line of conversation, speaks volumes to you character imo.
If you think lack of book smarts is what's wrong in this world you are sadly mistaken. Come hang out in the ghetto for a bit you'll find most of the people there to be quite smart, a lot of em were just dealt a crappy hand and they are hardly contributing to the degrading of society.
I'll restate that if you think their lack of book smarts is such a problem why not help educate them. Lobby your government to pay for schooling right through till college or university to help stop the "degradation of our culture and society."
hopefully this can continue as a productive thread.
Sorry, missed this when it was posted. You seem to be taking this pretty personally, so I'd be happy to reply and rebutt if you'd like.
