I do have a problem with the "ha, ha, serves them right" attitude I've occasionally observed here when bad things, as predicted, happen to these people.
Yes, they've been stupid. Yes, they could have avoided these misfortunes. No, I still don't think they "deserve" such calamities, any more than I think people who engage in unsafe sex "deserve" venereal diseases.

Your post address what I think is an important Fact of being Human.

I've seen the Anti-Vacer Mom.
Her Mom was an Anti-Vacer, too.
She is Soo frightened for herself, her home and her family.
The world is full of corse, Fuckless Jerks. Many Violent.
The TV is full of violence, fear and ugliness.
The schools can't protect and teach her children.
And; Her husbands job may be lost to Outsiders.
She is young.
Yet; She seems to be missing the Internet Web Gene.
She looks at her mother's, mother's world longingly.
She loves her family.
She wants all good things for them.

Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
