: Look at you all - don't pretend to care about the starving who evers, no one else does - you don't either or you'd be out there doing something 100% of the time instead of whatever else you do..

Qx: Actually, most people involved in activism can't be everywhere at once so just because they can't doesn't mean that they're pretending at anything. It's more your presumption than anything alse.

: And another thing - would you spend all day making a lousy car into a mediocre one or a great car into an amazing one?

Qx: That really depends on ones mechanical abilities and how much money they have to spend on fixing up cars. Besides, I like trucks and vans.

: So why should anyone spend money on making some lousy people into some people who are just a bit crap? Huh? Good effort down the drain if you ask me, but thats what all those pressure groups and goody goodies want don't they?

Qx: In reality nobody is just "a bit crap". Humans live in societies no mater how much certain "individualists" fantasize about with their own pressure groups and goody goody Bible-thumping rants.

: nah!

Qx: I suppose that means no.
