11. The system is stacked against the lower classes

When people talk about the system being "rigged", this is what they mean. The system is designed to punish the "losers" and reward the "winners". And in fact it makes it harder for the "losers" to "pull themselves up by the boot straps" and yet alternately allow the "winners" to get by easier, even when they make mistakes. Golden parachutes are just one example. A top executive that fell into the problems like you would not get fired for losing their clearance. They'd get a bonus and sent on their way with life long benefits.
