While I overall agree with you on this, I think if anything you understate the importance of 3. Even if you* did get where you are without support of government programs (and you didn't, you just don't realize all the support you got), you still didn't get anywhere without the social capital provided by your ancestors, something that is usually made quite explicit in the germanic traditions.

* I use the pronoun you as a general term, not directed at Rev. Dangler specifically. I probably should use 'a person' instead.
