Capitalism feeds us all this lie that good peo­ple don’t take hand­outs, that they pull them­selves up by their boot­straps, cre­ate their own luck, and are suc­cess­ful in di­rect cor­re­la­tion to the ef­fort they put in. This is a lie that only ben­e­fits the rich, and al­lows them to con­tinue to ex­ploit the work­ing class with­out con­se­quence.
