Well spoken Paddy..well spoken.
I notice a marked tendency with most peoples in that they can be very generous with someone elses breast/breastfeeding....not their own...some to
the point of entitlement. They are often where they think this is the everyday status quo of everything. This tends to skew ones thinking into the
inability to judge risk since someone else has the responsibility of taking the risk out of life for them. A safety net so to speak. I consider this
type of conduct in many peoples to be abuse and capable of only putting excessive risk onto me.
Now if I was with people I could respect and I know they have talents/skills that changes the risk factor. It beomes mutual or shared. It now
becomes respect due to this mutual understanding.
This risk factor without the safety net provided by someone else.. was quite a shock to those down in New Orleans a few years back. It was also
obvious there that it was someone elses responsibility to many of these people. They were victims. This continues there unto this very day.
I dont have much use for or respect for the "victim dictum."
If one is able, one carrys their load or carries their backside down the road. If one makes a pestilance out of themselves ...it is known how to
deal with pestilance.
It is no different in this situation described here by the OP.
One more thing here Paddy....
I'm a fairly black and white sort of person when push comes to shove, so I don't mess around with the ethics too much if my safety is at
You are correct here....My safety is my ethic ..every day. Numero Uno on the daily list.
Gotta shove off now Paddy..ships to build tonight,
Thanks for your view,
