    Why is there an UNDERLYING ENVY, EVEN HATRED of the upper classes?  Where does this

    hatred & envy stem from?  Why is there a hatred of those who are high, even very high achievers?  Life seems to be a microcosm of school where the A students are mocked, even envied  by other students for using their potential & achieving. Give insightful, analytical answers.

    Considering Republicans--the party represented in Congress almost entirely by extremely wealthy people--are always passing laws that give more tax breaks to the rich while screwing over the poor, is it really any surprise that this hatred exists when tens of millions of Americans are trapped below the poverty line with absolutely no escape?

    Most of these high achievers and members of the upper class already come from a place of affluence, so they really don't have to work very hard to reach the top - they're already granted access to all the resources they need to achieve their dreams and goals.

    Then you have an individual from a lower socioeconomic place that has to work five times as hard to earn even a fraction of what someone else was practically handed and even then, they're not treated as successful or respected for what they've earned. 

    If you can't understand why that would breed hostility and hatred....
