Yes, it is leftist culture. I grew up watching the same "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and I STILL didn't (and don't) resent the rich and famous.

Hold on. You're changing the game. We're talking about envy, not resentment.

Hardly anyone in the U.S. resents the rich and famous. We worship the wealthy, whether it's Mark Zuckerberg, Tiger Woods or Paris Hilton.

The only rich people folks resent -- or hate -- are people they think got rich by being crooks, like Wall Street bankers and some politicians. And even then, lots of people worship them too.
