I totally understand your points.
What I tend to see in the views of people preaching such society, is lack of empathy, lack of understanding that all people have born different and
had different environemnts to grow up and live at.
I remember somebody posting about two men, who were both in similar situation. One came out, one did not. The conclusion was that one wanted it, the
other did not. World is not black and white. Psychologically these people were extremely different. The fact that situation was same does not
I am naturally a slow sprinter. I would never be able to run as fast as Usain Bolt. I have trained it for 12 years, still I am slower than average guy
off the street. It is talent. Should I be punished for less wanting, not taking responsibility for my lack of talent?
Yet I have been given good brain. I can learn the materials others need to work with whole day in less than an hour. Should the others be punished for
being slower and not wanting to be as fast as I am?
Many homeless people are vets. The war, what they have seen is horrible and for many alcohol is the only solution. In a way it is not even their
fault. Some have been given the strength to come out, others have not. Do they deserve to get punished for it?
I have been blessed with good brain and good supportive environment when I was young. The environment plays huge rule, just as genetics plays in
psychological development. Even small things from our childhood might influence our lives forever. A good home and supportive environment gives as
values to live by.
If a low-IQ person is born into a low-income family, who is not supportive in education and has to learn at a school which gives weak education to
other kids with similar background from broken low-income families, what do you expect of him? However hard he would work, it is extremely unlikely he
will ever reach even middle-class. It is likely he would not even finish highschool due to the environment that has shaped into who he is. Such cases
happen every day around the world. It is not that they do not want to live well, they have never been taught to what to do for it, how to do it.,
Unless someone who has been blessed with better environment to grow up in "helps them" out, it is likely they go to crime. If they shoot your kid in
order to survive, it is just as much the responsibility of the stronger ones than the weak one with not preconditions to get to the top.
The rules many want to see would work only in a world where everybody is born with the exactly same talents in the same family with same friends, same
acquintances, same life. The world is not as black and white as you make it seem to be. That is why a system without no benefits can not create a
