Ever notice at the top of the dollar bill it says “federal reserve note”? The dollar “bill” is just another bill that we have to pay back. This is why you can never get ahead. But if you think you have nothing to show for all of your hard work, then take a look around at all the stuff you were able to buy.
Money is a medium of exchange. The dollar bill is a loan to you in exchange for your labor. You have to put it back in the system in exchange for other resources that you enjoy.
Capitalism is all about raising your standard of living. If you are content with little or nothing, then you are rich. Some cultures and people groups are poor on paper because they value community over “wealth building”.
According to the law of attraction, if you want more then you will find a way to get it. No need to play the victim. We already have enough people with a victim mentality in society as it is.
Also native American philosophy teaches wisdom in only taking what you need. In working class terms this is called “working to live” as opposed to “live to work”.
