Envy bigots are not going to say that they are envious. They’ll come with a pretext to put the one more successful in bad light.
Then, there is a question. Why envy? Why do people develop envy? Evolution theories teach that most of our main preferences are preferences that get us in the gene pool. So males tend to aim for as many females as possible, even on the thousands if they can. History has shown this. I mean, you know many males who are not?
Such males are the sort of males that survive in the gene pool. Women tend to aim for quality, usually measured by richness, smartness, and political power. A typical woman will aim for at most 4-5 males, even one, if that one is Brad Pitt. That’s because women don’t make more kids simply because they get more males. So they want the best genes. Got it so far? Nothing strange here.
Because there is the same number of males and females, (actually, the number is inversely proportional with resource allocation a particular sex will consume to reach adulthood), when one male gets plenty, the others will be out-competed from the gene pool.
So those who are uncompetitive will then come up with some far fetch beliefs that lessen the competition. That’s why we have sex laws, and religions. There is not enough scientific evidence supporting all those beliefs. People simply cherish beliefs that benefit their interests. For the uncompetitive, that means for an envy motivated lies an attributing success, like making a lot of money, or mating with many females, with sin, like greed, or lust.
That’s also why different people have different ideas of what’s right and what’s wrong. They simply have different interests or wish to ally with different groups.
