We can not envy economic benefits (health, beauty, social success). These jealousies are suffered by the disturbing resemblance to distributive injustice.
We are in 2013. This year occurred in Venezuela and Argentina after first, looting stores perpetrated by ordinary citizens.
Journalists become an orgy with these so outrageous, disturbing, tragic news.
Psychologists we also become a party.
Maybe the perversity of journalists and psychologists not so bad (I'll give you encouragement?, I will want to silence my criticism?).
The events actually occurred and all would think that either professionals (journalists and psychologists) directly contributed to the chaos.
There are many things to say from psychology, but the one that seems a little novel, because hardly anyone mentions it includes us all species, not just those who participated in the vandalism.
The phrase that sums this diagnosis says: "The honest citizens steal when no reason not to."
I say otherwise "will plunder where possible”.
It follows from this assertion that human nature contains vocation seize what others are already plenty of us lack.
Therefore, humans are economically socialist in nature, except that someone prevented us with sufficient deterrent.
What we call envy is actually irritating subjective perception of being transgressing natural law: that nobody has assets of more.
Envy is, then, the sense of distributive injustice experienced by every citizen individually observing how others have greater possessions than he.
If this were true, we can not begrudge financial benefits, such as health, beauty, lot of friends. But these are experienced by jealousy simply disturbing resemblance to distributive injustice.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): La envidia es instintiva.
