Your disstillment of Paul Graham’s essay:
[ I can distill the essence of the entire argument to: “Don’t hate the player, but don’t hate the game either. Hate yourselves, stupid poors, for not getting VC funding to start a company.” ]
I searched his essay for “stupid poors” and could not find anything. Perhaps he didn’t say that and you injected it into your quoted disstillment of Paul Grahams words. I thought you were going to respond to his essay rather than respond for Paul Graham.
