Rich Man, Poor Man

Envy is most destructive to the person who feels it.  Nothing will destroy one’s happiness more than envy.  A lack of gratitude usually goes hand in hand with envy, and is a deadly combination for anyone seeking a happy life.  There must be a special place in hell for politicians who exploit for political gain the human tendency to envy. They are no less evil than drug dealers for what they are pushing is addictive and destructive and benefits them at the expense of their unfortunate victims.

The points Bill Whittle makes in this video constitute eternal truths of life and were also made by Alexis de Tocqueville in his other great book, A Memoir on Pauperism (1835).
