The feral aren't the feral because, say, the educational system is defective

— although it is defective and fundamentally so, we're now 24th in the world.
Education fails to engage and redirect the feral because it's built around the fantasy that everybody will be smart and nice if nurtured just so. No they won't. No amount of education can improve the incurious. They will become what they admire—the stunningly stupid, criminally improvident and violently impulsive. They know it and we know it. The difference is, they admit it and we don't.

"... the stunningly stupid, criminally improvident and violently impulsive ..." will soon be irrevocably dead when they encounter intelligent people that have no compunctions about killing vermin.

Oddly, I've learned HOW to do all that BETTER than they do, with less potential consequence, from going to school and paying attention.
Not that I WOULD of course.
