The perspective of everyone can be successful if they work hard enough was used as a justification for the emergence of a leisure class since if you were successful, which is morally correct, you deserve the freedom and privileges it allows you. This concept can be elaborated on significantly. This perspective still prevails today in modern times. It influences policy and politics. Disgruntled workers vote for who they believe will make success easier and are enamored with the rich and powerful. Policies often want to punish the poor and the idea of unworthy and worthy poor still dominates how social welfare is carried out.
