That attitude makes me think that those folks don't see any roll for themselves in the improving of their outcomes. A good example are the folks who see Warren riding in on a white horse and saving the country from the 1%. It isn't going to happen but they still hold out hope it will.
I think we need an infusion of positive thinking and determination into our lives or else we remain in a victimhood mentality and nothing will improve because we've convinced ourselves that we are powerless.
Just my point of view.
