A different kind of laziness

There are people who do not shrink from hard work who none the less would rather bail out a cesspool with a teaspoon than question their own attitudes or examine how limited their influences and information are.

That sort of person is the easiest to lead, but only in the sorry direction he is already headed.

The hope I cling to is that any kind of laziness is less the inertia against difficult or unpleasant effort and more an acculturation to expect little of oneself.
