Why do you think that people who want justice and fairness are envious? Actually, I wish I had a smaller house! (cheaper and faster to heat, cool, clean, maintain, pay taxes on) And less stuff! (I have to periodically winnow it--what a pain) While I agree that my brother's Hyundai Genesis is more awesome to drive than any car I've ever owned, I wouldn't want to buy one even though I can afford it. There are other discretionary items/experiences that are of more value to me...attending performances, buying pastured beef, taking art classes...and the Genesis takes premium gas--ick.

My heart breaks more for the poor than the rich.
