Envy = Evil

"Envy is a form of hostility toward another person or group for possessing something one regards as good, whether it is wealth, power, intelligence, skill, beauty, or whatever," Atlas Society founder David Kelley explains. "Envy is worse than jealousy. Jealousy is a desire to have those good things for oneself. Envy is the wish that the other person not have them. It is a purely destructive emotion, a desire for the other’s loss rather than one’s own gain. It is what Ayn Rand described as hatred of the good for being the good." Envy was in Ayn Rand's view, "a response of hatred, not toward human vices, but toward human virtues."
