Okay. I've been wondering for months, and this is the first article that's actually made any sense.Translation: People dont like being in last place and will take steps, not necessarily to better themselves, but to keep someone lower than themselves.
Yes, its exactly as short-sighted, stupid and petty as it sounds, I dont care if my life gets any better as long as yours is worse.
But it suddenly brings certain things into focus, doesnt it? Common wisdom is that conservatives do not support taxing the rich because they are convinced that they, themselves, will someday be rich. But conservatives dont honestly believe that theyre suddenly going to become millionaires and then magically be taxed back into poverty. Im sure some do, but most arent actually that stupid. They are, however, selfish enough to not want the poor being brought up to their level.
