Envy must be the cardinal sin of mankind.

Envy is the root cause of most theft, destruction, violence, murder, war, and voting Democrat. Envy though springs from vanity/pride so theologians might say pride is the root cause of all evil.

Envy is what sparks human evolution which occurs mostly during tribal warfare. If it wasn't for envy we would still be in the Garden of Eden happily eating grubs from a stick.

Religion provides a significant competitive advantage during war. The Neanderthals were not religious but the modern humans were and the Neanderthals got killed off.

Good insights. The Anthropoligical manifestation of envy is something I did not think about. The early Communists knew they were playing with a powerful force of man’s nature.
