I cannot give you a dictionary definition, or I'd be here all night, but I'd suggest the following two examples are examples of 'difficult circumstances' and I've suggested non-radical solutions:
1. Being born into poverty - yes, I know there is welfare, but it often doesn't amount to enough, let alone enough to save towards a college education.
Solution: Equal percentage income tax. Wouldn't even have to be a high percentage, could even be lower than it is at the moment.
2. Being born into a poorer community - you know the areas and you know the attitudes in those areas is that a different life is nigh on impossible.
Solution: Simply better education. Possible if the tax breaks large corporations are currently getting are reeled in by even 10%. A better standard of education simply changes attitudes from one generation to the next, bringing realistic hope of a better life.
