Jealousy? How about fairness."
So your neighbor buys a new car, is it fair to take that away because you have a piece of crap?
Is it fair that you might have to pay 10 times the price for the same product as the person in line in front of you?
You think it is unfair to reap from what you sow as long as it's more that what someone else reaps, that is insane and that is harmful to the economy and to our very minds.
What you have is returns that actually go the other way, a worker has only time to give in exchange for money. A wealthy person contributes more capital than his time might be worth, more than the workers time to facilitate production. Yet you think that the worker should be paid as much r more even though his input is lessor? That is not fairness.
You can never call something fair that requires taking away by force something which another rightfully obtained.
"You don't honestly believe that they earned it all through their own brilliance and hard work. You surely don't believe they actually deserve it. "
Why not? They negotiated an equitable deal, that is fair. So did the workers in lower classes, they traded their time and skill set for a wage that is commensurate.
And no i'm not rich, i don't place much value on money. I don't really care about it at all, the important thing to me is this cancer that spreads through society that is the destructive though that you and others like you display. There is no problem with seeing a nice car on the road and thinking that might be fun to have there is a big problem with plotting to take it away.
