Hi CC thanks for sharing.

Yeah, it just seems like parents, teacher, heck even scoutmaster or tee-ball coaches....I can't remember ONE "grown up" in my life that ever peddled envy but rather promoted the notion of achieving thru effort.

I think nowadays, all we can do is TRY to instill values in our own loved ones and kids. Let em go thru 'the system' because they have to....but do our darndest to make sure the system doesn't brainwash them into wanting mediocrity for everyone.
