To economically cognizant, success oriented, & highly ambitious people out there, what causes some
people to possess a strong animus against the wealthy, even despising socioeconomic wealth in general? What makes these people very phobic on the point of psychosis regarding the issue of wealth, even believing that socioeconomic wealth is immoral, even evil? In many of my questions regarding money & wealth, there were few answers which can be described as totally beyond the pale of inductive & deductive logic, going into the sublime of total fantastical realms so to speak. Perhaps these people are failures who have never attained economic success & have an underlying envy and jealousy.
Grace there is a difference in your question here you do not understand my replies, I do not despise anyone, and I did not say wealth is bad, but I said who gives wealth can be bad, example we all know that there is bad money, money to murder,money to traffic drugs, money to break laws that hurt other people , in the the case I am bringing to your attention is the worse kind selling your soul to satan for a price .we all know that exist as well so stop ignoring this by using your
I am not referring to money gained by nefarious means. I am referring to money gained honestly by education, sacrifice, organizing, strategizing, and work smart to attain.
I agree with that but you must be clear wealth can be gained many ways and people enjoy it no matter the way they got it.
My concern is if you got it the wrong way you will not have long.
Exactly, ill gotten wealth really have a way of dissipating.The person can end up in jail or dead. H/she can lose it through a more dangerous competitor. Karma has a way of righting wrongs, believe it or not.
I don't know anyone who hates people who work hard and earn their money. I do know people, myself included, who resent those who get wealthy at the expense of others and don't seem to care. There are good wealthy people who do indeed work hard. My grandfather was one of those people. He built a successful business despite a lack of advanced education and against the odds. I always admired and respected his grit and determination and have tried to emulate it. What I don't like is those who are born with a silver spoon, completely disconnected from the reality of most, who badmouth the working class people. It's those working class people that build the profits for the wealthy.
People scream and cry and carry on that people are pushing now for living wages - but where is the outrage at CEO's earning tens of millions per year when hourly employees who work hard have to depend on public assistance just to scrape by. People are frustrated and rightfully so in this economy that denies the middle and working class and constantly puts the squeeze on us and blames us for lack of opportunities and jobs.
Trickle down "economics" was the biggest fraud ever perpetuated on the American public. These giant corporations outsource jobs, hoard money and dodge taxes - the "peasants" get tired of the wealthy thinking they are too elite to play by the same rules the rest of us are expected to. It's not hatred to point out failed policies and poor behaviors. I might also ask - why the hatred and disdain for the working class displayed by so many of the wealthy? Someone has to make the food, pick up the trash, ring the groceries etc.
I see more nastiness towards the working poor than any other demographic. They are called lazy, but they work hard. They are called "welfare queens" but if they were paid a living wage, they wouldn't have to depend on the govt. doll etc. I think people just like to judge those they don't understand in general - and that's a human condition.

Do you have to be evil to be rich and successful?It seems like anyone that is successful is automatically scrutinized by media and the public in general as a person with a dark side. I realize it's next to impossible to be successful without stepping on someone along the way, but does that make you...

Why do some people detest socioeconomic wealth so much, even contending that suchwealth is abhorrent? Why is socioeconomic wealth so demonized? Is this demonization of socioeconomic wealth have a basis in envy?

Is it socially unacceptable or frowned upon to be successful these days?I hear talk about wealth redistribution and the evils of the 1%, so I ask, is it wrong to be successful these days? Do we need to be mediocre so as to not irritate others?
