The key paragraph:

Nobody deserves to be rich or poor. No one should starve, or be homeless or without care when they are ill or injured. The above attitude does not take into account many factors which affect the ability of people to succeed here in this day and age. Not everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed economically in this country. Obviously, some are born into family situations more advantageous than others. In way too many respects, money has become the be all and end all of too much of life in this country and world. Money enables parents to get better health care, food, shelter and education for their children than those living in poverty can afford. People are able to advance within our society, but it is far more difficult for most than the defenders of the status quo are willing to admit.

Thanks, Adam, for highlighting this important topic.
