We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The sanctimonious kids who do not want to pursue profit, and desire to be pure in some puritanical way (but not sexually), often are too economically ignorant to realize that they only wish to survive on the exertions, risks, and profit of others.
Do they really aspire to be helpless parasites like the Occupiers?
Check out the salaries for middle management at some of the "Non-Profits". I remember sitting at the pool side bar of the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra, Ghana a few years back. (The Golden Tulip is a high end Dutch hotel chain). The place was full of Red Cross and other NGO families. No scrimping for them. This is the goal of many students to pursue phony work in a non-profit but still make big bucks after a few years.
At least the hippies were honest about their goals and didn't sponge too much.
Shhh. No one tell these brilliant college students that any salary they make that is in excess of what is required to do their work, basic food, place to sleep, proper clothing, commute expenses, is all profit.
Profit - excess of value received for producing, keeping, or selling, over cost
Many, maybe most, colleges and especially universities drill this attitude into their students that "pure science" is the only thing that matters and that any economic drive behind research makes that science "impure".
Of course they then go on to indoctrinate those same students into global warming fanaticism, teach them how to write papers in such a way that the conclusion is always that they need more donations/subsidies to do more research, etc. etc.
