An awful lot of the people in there jumped in themselves by having children they weren't financially prepared for.
A lot of people were dragged there by the people you WOULD be describing if not for the fact that they were already inside the gravity well anyway.
A lot of people are in the gravity well because this might describe their parents.
It doesn't matter what put someone there. The problem is the fact that once they are inside, they can never leave, and neither can their children.
Yeah, assigning blame is utterly unproductive. If it makes people like Loren feel better, then let's accept ad argumentum that people having children that they weren't financially prepared for is the major cause of poverty. Now, WTF do we do to fix that poverty? Absent a time machine or a program of genocide, we can't eliminate the children they (perhaps unwisely) had.
So how do we fix this issue, for which we have all now had our fill of smug blame assigning?
