Shadows on our eyes

Is being helpless desirable? I think at times, and for some it is. The real question perhaps is discovering if this behavior is a natural one, learned or environmental. And, we all probably have some aspect, or at times have needed to let someone or something else make the decisions, take charge or take some action. Again, working with the public I am often confronted with people who refuse to take steps to either learn something or figure something out on their own. Perhaps this is one of the reasons librarians remain gainfully employed. Maybe the nature of many institutions is to keep people from gaining and or retaining a level of self sustained competence; otherwise, who would make the fries.
