This is a term used for un-contributing OTHERS in our emerging social democracy.
The Aggressively Lazy cannot be counted upon to be contributing members of the whole. Potentially, they can really mess it up for the rest of the citizens who are WILLINGLY participating to make sure everyone in the country thrives equally well.
They are a group of people who apparently do not posses
Q. What contributes to the psychological make-up of an aggressively lazy person.
Some say he/he is just not hungry enough. But, perhaps there is more to it than that.
The aggressively lazy are risk averse. They do not want to exert any exert towards attaining their goals because of fear of failure. They contend that if they try and fail, then what was the point. They also believe that the odds are against them for attaining their dream. They are the ones who feel that outside forces whether natural, human, and/or man made are the determining factors of whether they will succeed or not. They maintain that it is those outside forces that prevent and/or cause them to not to accomplish their specific goal. They also want to live luxuriantly with very little or no effort. They believe that success should come to them easily or that someone should sponsor them towards attaining success. If they have to work for success, they DON'T want IT for it is not worth the effort it entails.
no, this goes beyond even that, I wish that there were a legitimate human explanation like that. I am talking about people that just want to sit on their rump, period! The only thing that the work hard at is convincing people that they won't work and justifying it. If they have that much energy it could be channeled into a job. It is not a matter of goals, it is just taking a job.
I don't want to come off as callous, I have given money to people before without my having to interrogate them about job prospects. We are all moved in charitable ways, but it is poor public policy as there is no physical yardstick to measure what someones intent for receiving public assistance actually is. We can only measure if they are physically or mentally unable. If some can justify it, why not others using the same explanation until layabouts abound?
Yes, there are the indolent ones who want the good life at others' expense. Those socioeconomic vampires refuse to work for it requires expenditure to look for and obtain a job. They also do not want the responsibility of a job. They want the EASY, luxuriant life but it DOESN'T work that way. One has to EARN the luxuriant life.
I don't know what you mean by "aggressively" lazy. How are they "aggressive"?
people who do not want to work, living on the labors of others as per:
I don't know... like passive-aggressive?
Like mad at the world, so I'm not going to work?
Maybe it is a form of passive-aggressiveness!?
I coined the phrase, let me explain it. It refers to people who adamantly refuse to work or make any attempt, making a scene regarding their virtual right to indolence at the expense of others.
I think its due to a disability involving positive will-power.
What promotes positive will-power?
Will-power develops when one freely pursues what one wants.
When what one wants is close at hand, a small amount of positive will-power is needed. Maybe the aggressively lazy, just never had to work very hard… ever!
I think it is more of a personality flaw, than stemming from other factors.
The aggressively lazy somehow lost their natural motivation/inclination to work toward a goal. Did they ever have the chance/opportunity to do so?
Perhaps they never worked toward a goal they believed in. One they could actually accomplish.
One they could accomplish because they were given help, love and attention by someone!
Perhaps I wanted to play the string base in fourth grade, but since I was not an A student, I wasn't allowed take the music lessons offered at school. So, I brought home the autoharp once in a while and taught myself how to play… but, no one realized my deep interest in music, even though I was singing all the time and teaching myself how to play the piano too. NOOO! My dad got out the metronome and scared me away from learning to play anything.
I was shut down.
Perhaps the aggressively lazy were shut down in some manner as children too. Perhaps Joe wanted to learn how to become a car mechanic, but his father, who owned an auto repair shop, was shot and killed in a gang scuffle. His mother had to work to support the family as a hotel maid and focused on the younger children. Joe did not recieve enough attention or adequate guidance from his mother.
Joe wanted money. He never had any. So he started stealing… why? Because he could. He was good at it. Some friends warned him he could end up in jail, but, "Here!" they said "You can get gov't assistance...and its legal!!!" So Joe moved in with his friends, settled back and collected for the rest of his life.
Perhaps, some type of free gov't educational/occupational program could be offered to the aggressively lazy… If the gov't wants socialism, they will have to reform the aggressively lazy or we will be in big trouble.
