135. It's a different world now....
the opportunities for even the most industrious among us are simply not there. The system is geared to make things even MORE difficult.

The system as it is now, and which it has been moving toward for decades, makes sure the "haves" get more and the "have-somes" struggle harder and harder to keep it, and the "have-nots" are just screwed all the way around, short of a literal miracle.

Hard work and good decisions really have little to do with one's success or wealth these days. Though certainly, being lazy and making bad decisions have consequences.

Oh, wait...they "haves" (i.e. Wall Street) don't seem to suffer consequences of their poor decisions and lack of industriousness.
