'This form of winner-take-all entitlement is appealing in a few contexts. Obviously it appeals as a convenient retrospective justification or cover story for the traditional privileges, if they're no longer socially defensible on the basis of tradition alone: if you're born rich, or white, or male, or all three, but don't want to just come right out and say "I'm entitled to my status, because I was born rich/white/male", it's easy enough to pretend like you "earned" everything you have by the sweat of your brow. It's not a concidence that libertarianism is 94% white, 68% male and popular among the ultra-rich of silicon valley. But it also appeals if you think you have some sort of effort-based chance to "get to the top"; hence the popularity with young startup/entrepreneur folks, and among MRAs and PUAs hoping to transform themselves into "alpha males" and even those among the poor who see themselves as "temporarily embarrassed millionaires", soon to climb back to the top of the heap (however unlikely).'
