Here in America, we have an interesting outlook on most things economic. We (as a nation) like to think of this as the land of opportunity, where the only thing separating the single mother working at Starbucks from Bill Gates is some good decision-making and a bunch of hard work. This is, of course, laughably naïve horseshit, but it doesn't keep millions of Real Americans™ from propping up the fantasy of personal responsibility and rugged individualism that leads to literally taking food from poor children while guaranteeing rich farm owners' income.
