What makes some subcultures in the United States subscribe to, even embrace the culture,


philosophy, and psychology of failure, disdaining any forms of educational and socioeconomic improvement? There are people who do not wish to their best educationally and socioeconomically. They are quite content living at the educational and socioeconomic periphery of society. They endlessly complain about how hard their life is, oftentimes wondering how they are going to pay their bills and have a roof over their heads yet they refuse to exert the necessary effort to improve their circumstances.

    Excellent answer. It's easy for those of us with comfortable lives and upbringings to sit in judgment, but to be born into desperation with no real models of success stacks the deck against many.

    The tribalism that I see is one of looking down at people below you on the economic scale and thinking of them as peasants. The strongest tribe, in this sense, is the millionaires. They say that if you wanted to be a millionaire you would earn it.
