However, this morning, I awoke with all the images and knowledge I have ever received about cotton-picking - all of which comes from movies about American slavery, history lessons, and literary readings of slave-narratives, which helped me realize... cotton was difficult work. Cotton-pickers had to use innovative workplace techniques that helped them fulfill their quotas while protecting their minds, bodies, and souls as much as possible. Dag-nabit, cotton-picking took lots of sense! Does this mean the children who pick cotton have the most sense given that they were forced pick cotton an early age?
If more people had cotton-picking sense and the ability to combine it with the resources available today, we could create a humane world (no, we don't current have one). As long as we have men, women, and mostly children somewhere picking cotton and forced into picking-cotton-like work - we truly have no sense.
