Most people have the drone/peasant mentality:
1. I am a victim, not an incompetent.
2. I am unique and important because I am.
3. I am misunderstood.
4. The source of my problems is the world not doing things for me; it has nothing to do with me getting organized.
5. Because of the above, and because I see some people succeeding, I must insist that we are all equal because only that explains my victimhood mentality in the face of others doing just fine.
That's liberalism, counter-culture, rock music, punk (especially) and most metalheads in a nutshell.
