Just wait 'til the poor find out that the fastest way to success is a bullet through your head and a grab for your wallet. Why not? What do they have to lose?

In my country, they DO have a lot to lose. And hence our crime rates tend to be low enough that you can actually leave your house door open and nobody would even consider entering. Despite knowing that you most likely do NOT own a gun.

Guess what, there are people who happen to be less bright than average. Or maybe just less fortunate. Or just happen to come from the wrong corner of town, had to go to the wrong schools...

Not everyone is lucky in life. I am. You might be. But I slowly lose my patience with idiots saying "they just have to try harder" after mommy and daddy ensured they had enough of an education that they can find a job they can get by on (at least for now, let's see how it pans out in the next decade or so). Because, sorry to be so blunt, what you just said is usually what comes out of the mouth of spoiled brats who NEVER had to fight for anything in their life.

Support the country you live in, or go live in the country you support.

Agreed. Could you now please make the US stop trying to destroy what we built up because they're afraid and envious of our success and wealth? The various "agreements" the EU currently gets forced into serve nothing but pulling us down to the US levels.

Phew. So they found a way to explain away a number that could make people ponder whether the "all is fine and the state is in control" message we keep hearing over and over could be wrong and their own observations could be right.

Fuck, even people in communist countries knew that their government is lying to them and that they should more rely on what they see in their reality than the crap they get told...

No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
