No one wants to face the simple possibility that many people remain in poverty because they are lazy (coupled with a lack of self confidence). And we make it even easier for them to stay there by giving them money.

To brand everyone who is in poverty as being "lazy" is a cop-out in the other direction.

Some surely are. But it does a great injustice to those who work hard and never quite get ahead due to luck, circumstances, or other random factors.
