Someone born into wealth had no control over that fact.This is really it. There's no real idealism behind it. It's just the inchoate rage of the lazy, bellowing impotently at those who would dare take the slightest initiative to control their own destinies.

Edit: And you're right, its not very idealistic. You're more idealistic than I am. You still believe the playing field is level. You still think capitalism isn't broken. You still believe that with enough elbow grease anybody can attain the American Dream, whatever the fuck that means anymore. You might think yourself cynical but you're far more optimistic than I ever was.
