I just purchased a house in a mountain community away from the big ugly cities…. and what I have discovered there is that 1/2 of these people are capital “L” looser/psychopaths. The descriptor in the OP suits many of them to a “T”. They are not away in the rural areas because they are rocket scientists, they are there because they are the opposite of rocket scientists. Fortunately the people who live immediately around our spread a have “jobs” and are real people… but I worry about when SHTF hits. How many of the marginal psycho people are going to be coming door to door looking for cans of baked beans and bottles of Avian water.
