Re: OT : Are the Poor responsible for their own poverty?
I am a middle-class student and I definitely see how I have it better off than kids from less affluent families. I have a part-time job and earn a decent amount of money, but I'm fortunate in that I can bank or invest a large proportion of it. A lot of kids have to spend on groceries and rent.
So no, the poor are not responsible for their own poverty.
