However, they can be taught. If SHTF for real, I think they can be instructed. They just haven’t needed it up to now.

Yes most people can be taught but those with skills aren’t going to bother in a SHTF scenario unless it is going to benefit those who already have skills. Said another way, everyone has to have something to offer. If you are young, strong, and healthy, but unskilled, the skilled folks may have a use for you. Not so much for the not-young, not-strong, and not-healthy.

Not true. I’ll teach anyone anything I know that they do not. Life has taught me that it’s better to be owed a favor, or friendship than money or other “currency”…
