“A man may get to the end of his life never having to change a tire on a cold, snowy night. He wonât get to the end of his life as a man however.”
Exactly. To be in a normal range of “human”—you must experience living life which has to be interacting with humans to learn to control (and have) emotions. You must learn real life survival skills (outdoor/work ethic)—mastering environment
Nerds are removed from Reality (isolate themselves from human interaction)-—real life and live in books without learning real life human interaction-—or real mastery of the environment (outdoors)-—so they live in an unreality—a theoretical world.
When their “theories” deal with human beings they are pathetic-—only with numbers/machines can they look “competent” because they have NO understanding of human psychology. It is why they try to dehumanize people—reduce them to “bots” and put us into boxes (socialist societies-—to completely program and control us). John Dewey was a nerd, as was President Wilson.
Human interaction with “nerds” is like dealing with bots (programmed minds) who can’t understand real human emotions and can’t have flourishing, loving, “human” relationships.
At this point, it would be useful to provide a definition of “nerd”.
