Lucky for us (hardware &c) evolution is happening.

Selective ideas could be more productive if we'd start with younger minds, stupid parents won't! Though it may eventually increase domestic disputes..? I couldn't find the right episode of The Andy Griffith Show where the farmer won't let his kids go to school because their needed in the fields...

That movie looks good: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/theperfect46

An infinite timeline uninterrupted by stories of control
(minus entertainment and healthy conduct) is obvious,
unless you pick one to blind with and\or by.

Actually I wouldn't categorize keeping kids home from school to work in the fields as stupid, just shortsighted and a consequence of bad economic policy, including legislation but extending to the mindset that makes getting one's hands dirty seen as demeaning and of low value. We all like to spend less at the grocery store but gouging the farmers is not a sustainable option and certainly unrealistic. How is it more respectable to drive and distribute produce or stock shelves and manage the stock boys and cashiers? Kids must work in the fields because food and shelter trumps everything else and if a farmer can't afford to hire workers due to low profit margins what else can he do but put his children to work. This is especially true if the farmer also expects his children will carry on the family business. It is just crazy that we value, for example, football players over teachers and farmers, but that is the reality.

My crappy English and vaguenesscity strikes again... kids should learn farming at school and home, whether it be home schooled or not.
