If I pay $4500 a month for an apartment in Manhattan I should not have to share a door (or a doorman) with a bunch of street trash delinquents, end of story. It's like when you get first class on an airplane, if someone wants to board first they can pay for a ticket. It's a choice.

But god decided to make me better than everyone else so I shouldn't have to. Also being poor is a choice but also god is involved and stuff, I dunno.

What corrective action should be taken going forward that will empower the poor to make the right decisions at any juncture they encounter during their day to day lives? Perhaps we should tee-up by attacking the problem at the core instead of employing percussive maintenance: poor people make bad choices because they are poor. Although this issue is like putting socks on an octopus, we can't just throw the poor under the bus going forward.

and it's purely coincidence that poor people tend to stay poor and rich people tend to stay rich

This article right here is garbage.

I really love it when liberals write about how working-class people are subhuman animals who need to ~uplifted~ in response to conservative bullshit about them not being rich because of their stupidity. The privileged right-winger is saying "the masses aren't rich because their stupid", and the privileged left-winger is saying "no, the masses are stupid because they aren't rich". The debate is so goddam elitist. The idea that the bad choices working-class people make are so important that this article needs to be written is retarded because being working-class means you dont have plenty choices in the first loving place.

Let me tell you about the plethora of individual choices you can make being working-class in america:
Hustle
Hustle for more hours
Hustle for even more hours than that
Make sure not to spend too much on bullshit.
Make sure to save.
Dont get injured.
Dont get addictdd to booze, drugs, or anything like that.
Dont have kids unless you can afford them.

Those are all the choices. Plenty working-class people fail to make all the right ones, but its not like doing everything right will make you a millionaire in the first place anyway. A poor person who has made all the right choices and is in a more comfortable position because of that isn't magically not poor.

P.S none of this applies to the unemployed goons who play video games and jack-off all day. You're all failures because of your own individual bad decisions, and you need to own up to them and stop blaming everyone
