The world has uneven prosperity...in poor countries that inequity is much more pronounced...here in the US and in most of the 1st world there is a much more even distribution across the classes as well as mobility which really ameliorates the "envy". And a hell of a lot of people in favor of welfare programs are for the most part doing so out of a sense of community responsibility....they're just misguided.
