Why the animosity against overachievers and the highly successful in American society?
People are mad and always want to complain about something. A happy succesful person is the prime target for hatred.
i don't think there is. the animosity is mainly against the ones who get everything without doing much for it. personally i've worked my butt off to get to where i am and i laugh at anyone who says i'm lucky. i've educated myself since i was a young kid, i've survived the streets and became a successful businessman. the people i don't like are the ones who think that because they have a lot of education or come from a wealthy family, they are more important or better then others. i am curious about you though because you seem to consider yourself to be one of the highly intelligent and successful people .
