Yes, indeed! It's the greed and selfishness and lack of adherence
to principle that accounted for the adoption of slavery, and the
West paid and is paying a huge price.

Each Frenchman, ("le fainéant"), who has succumbed to this lure
has placed his nation in great jeopardy. People should get off
their asses and clean their own homes and take out their own
garbage. On this score, at least, I'm no hypocrite.

The very idea of having *servants* or using the "hired help"
is almost as disgusting as that of *worship*, against which
I railed yesterday.

All true, I'm afraid. The lazy French probably prefer this
situation to having to do their own menial tasks, what's a
riot or two if it doesn't get to your part of town? What if
it's really only a massive problem for your children to face?
