Thank you.

I do have empathy. But I just figure if I can pull myself out of minimum wage washing dishes. Living on my own from 16. Father in prison. Mother a suicidal drug addict.
If I can do that. I feel most of the others people who started where I did could as well if they put their mind and body to it.
Look man, that's an extremely rough upbringing. It makes me more empathetic to you than I was being previously, even though I stand by what I said about most of your positions being moronic. And it's great that you've made a better life for yourself. The reality is though...that there are people from even worse situations than what you are describing. Who cannot just "pull themselves out of it", for a vast multitude of reasons, most of which are not their fault. You have to recognize that even your own situation involves a lot of chance and luck. If you have empathy...then use it.
