It's what liberals say to poor people: "Pull yourself up by your bootstraps", i.e. succeed under capitalism and be rich. What they fail to realize is that rags to riches is a fairytale, the reality is you only make it under capitalism if rich people (family, your daddy's mates at the country club) allow you to make it.

Never knew it meant rich. Just thought it meant to provide a decent living for you and yours. Who needs to be rich (with money) anyways? Cops have asset confiscation, and government will take most of it away anyways.
