It seems to me that a lot of conversations about the economy and capitalism today could boil down to this:

Libertarian/Republican/fiscal conservative: "People are too dependent on entitlements! They have no sense of personal responsibility! Everybody needs to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps!"

Everybody else: "Okay, fine. Where do I get the bootstraps from?"

Libertarian/Republican/fiscal conservative: "Why are you so lazy? I'm not responsible for your success!"
