: Nearly all ability is acquired, if we could really, really remove that we'd see innate ability is very small.
But as Adam Smith observed, the social division of labor PREVENTS acquired ability from emerging---and it is expressly YOUR view that the social division of labor should be PRESERVED, otherwise you'd be in favor of job rotation (which, to your horror, expects your participation in some of the work those without 'acquired' skills have to do all the time).
BTW, your comment about homosexuality being 'sick': not too progressive there, Lark. Wouldn't your 'great socialist' hero Oscar Wilde be a tad disappointed?
