Hope must be part of our human make up; an urge

When in dire straits the hope is that a better life or better times can be found but opportunities are few and the way hard and narrow.

If, however, you are fine thank you, the hope is that those in dire straits will go away or be beaten into submission and there are many ways to achieve this.

Litigation, infringement of  civil rights, dehumanising till you actually believe the less fortunate have no right to ask for help/equality/better pay/a decent place to live/clean water/freedom/safety/etc.
