Makers and Takers in the Real World:

Makers are those people who marry, stay married and raise law-abiding children with a sense of civic duty and morality, as well as those who support, sustain and defend them.

Takers are those who fail to do any of the above, but rather exploit the society and opportunities living in a world made and sustained by the Makers gives them. The selfishness of Takers is a sort of blindness, and a sort of pillaging – blind to what enables the culture from which they take, and pillagers of the fruits of that culture.

Factories, inventions and profits mean nothing without the proper culture to support them.

Enough with the smarty-pants Dante quote. Just some opinionated blogger dude.
