Sometimes, and they are often taught to do it.

You want to churn your own butter, build your own transportation, weave your own fabric and sew your own clothes...feel free! If thats being smart, I'd rather be stupid.

Wow, the answer is overwhelmingly yes on this site...are you guys referring to yourselves, or just everyone except yourselves?

God, I hate when people are too poor to buy food for themselves. It's so irritating.

I'd say that people are dependent on society. They need the structure to feel secure and society is a way of keeping people together as a way of survival. But I don't think people are too dumb to take care of themselves. If civilization collapsed, people would find another way to live and go on. *Unless we all get nuked*

They used to be smart enough and indepented enough to fend for themselves.

the mark of a society is how well it cares for its people through the direct actions of those members of said society that do not need the help.

I think most ppl are capable of taking care of themselves a few need help but simple cash isen't it.
