Just like everybody else

So I just mentioned Spock and "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" in another discussion, relating to teaching kids, because there are just so many of them and the ones that I feel deserve attention don't get it because the ones that need or demand it are taking up too much time. I feel especially bad because many of the deserving ones are just so patient. They sit there and wait their turn until I've finished dealing with all the bouncers, runners, screamers, criers and completely-off-the-wallers, and they're not always happy, but they wait anyway. This can't be doing good things to their psyche and they will grow up either with a grudge, or become just like everybody else because you don't get anywhere by being nobody. You have to shout and fight and push and shove if you want to get what you want, because the meek inherit nothing, not even the scraps from the pig trough, because pigs are thorough. If you are good and subservient and do everything they tell you to do then you will get as a reward the honour of being their slave until your usefulness has been burned out of you and they throw you aside.

Screw the many. If you have a voice in the world, fight for those who have no voice, so that they have a choice - so they have the freedom to live a life of their own.
