I get that our system can't function without winners and losers, but in my humble opinion the difference between being a have and a have not is all about choices in the vast majority of situations.
We're not talking about in a regular functioning economy though. in which I would basically agree with you. I'm talking about when a recession or crash happens. Which only happen because someone is engineering it to happen and allowing the real leeches of the world to suck more and more money out of our country and into their own pockets.
