People who need someone telling them what to do, what to think and how to behave are pathetic weaklings better suited for the ash heap of our species ' DNA history.
DJS - well said. I wished I had said it first!
The only caveat I would add is that (some) people can and do change.
When I was a young JW, others in the congregation called me "weak" and "pathetic" and I unthinkingly absorbed their judgemental labels.
It was only in my thirties that I seriously questioned those labels and realized I had been largely conditioned to look to others for answers and constant direction. Once I kicked those labels out and started changing my behaviour I "felt" different and realized I am capable of taking responsibility for my life and its direction - and there has been no holding me back.
It would have been such a waste of my life had I not been encouraged/expected to question those judgemental labels and change my behaviour.
All power to the ability of people to change if they make up their minds to do so!
