If your stomach isn’t growling, and you’re dry and warm, have a TV, probably a car, etc, all at someone else’s expense...

really, what does hard work get you?

For most of them, they are probably right. No matter how hard you work, how do you start from scratch in a state that takes so much in taxes, imposes all sort of stifling regulations, and undercuts ambition by making dependency so easy? This is our future btw.

said individuals could not get anywhere by trying alone, and that a person's parental background played a far larger role than personal effort in where they ended up

It is the amount of one's ability, skills,and knowledge that one chooses to acquire by one's own personal effort, in addition to hard work and who your parents are that determine where one ends up in a free society.

The logical conclusion to thinking that the wealthy are “winners in life’s lottery” who got what they have through inheritance, connections, rigged insider deals, etc.

The year I started college, Vassar went co-ed.

I seriously thought about going. I figured they couldn’t all be playing on the same team, and the odds would certainly have been in my favor.

Sadly, I got a mostly marketable degree and had to work for a living. I must be “rich” now in spite of my poor undergraduate decision making, since my taxes are going up next year and Obie said that would only happen to “the rich”.

UK "lost generation"
Graduates without a future are the new shock. Debt-burdened and scrambling for any barista job, many will never have the career they were told a degree would bring. The knock-on effect down the food chain means those with degrees displace others for that prized job tipping out coffee grounds at the espresso machine.

Socialism and communism always fail because they’re backwards on THE LAW OF EFFECT. THE LAW OF EFFECT basically says that you generally receive more of the behavior you reward and less of the behavior you punish. If you punish hard-workers by taxing them and taking more of the money they’ve earned, then you will have less hard work. If you reward people (with tax money taken from hard workers) for doing nothing, then you will have more people doing nothing. It’s just not that hard to understand. The Democrats understand this. The problem is, they don’t care. They are out to enrich themselves, not have a better country.
