An overlooked concept,

Leftists who constantly rant about "the poor" in America say that poor people are doomed to a life of misery. They also blame Capitalism for their misery. But thanks to Capitalism poverty is under the control of the individual. The real problem that such leftists make is they fail to realize that poverty is overcome by optimism. For instance, a lot of low income people fail to buy stocks because they don't think they are able to. A lot of low income people don't use resources like libraries, churches, and family because they don't think it will do them any good. With that kind of pessimism poor people will stay poor.
Capitalism honors optimism.
