    The probability ratio is too far skewed for luck to be so random as to be unattainable. This is a concerted effort by the 1% to box us into debt slavery. Anyone that has graduated with student loans is already there.

      I'm saying the losers (all of the 99%) who haven't been hurt too badly yet (the majority who stayed employed, kept their house, etc) see their relative success (which they may not have realized is subpar for most of the postwar era) as evincing their personal prowess rather than luck running uphill on a tilted field.
