Advocating for public policy that removes barriers to success is not a rejection of individual responsibility or agency, now is it? Improving the system is not the same as being a victim, now is it?
The victim demands and petitions that the world to change to suit them. Claiming victimisation as the bargaining chip as to why others should change whilst they refuse to.
Even when the environment changes to suit them, this only teaches the victim to double-down on the victimhood position. Which we witness in the OP. A successful person, still claiming victimhood, despite the environment changing to benefit them.
It's a vicious cycle of a one-sided mentality. It is ethically corrupt and it is toxic.
Every individual has it in them to succeed in any environment.
Unless they, as an individual, choose to be a victim instead.
