Keep stressing morals and personal decisions
Tell me what's moral about these conditions
Ali is talking about how politicians would emphasize how poor people have to be more “moral”, and have “personal responsibility”, but they never cared about the conditions people are in; Ali then goes and shows us the options poor people have. He’s talking about how politicians push all this moral political jumbo mumbo but in reality people are getting completely forgotten and often times screwed over in the current system.
