  • We are in the age of Pride, envy is just a reaction to a wound in our ego.

  • No, we are living in an age of unrivaled means and opportunity for the greedy to steal far beyond their fair share.

No, it occurred during the Ancient period (specifically Ancient Greece as Socrates and Aristotle wrote), and some could argue it lasted further into the Feudal era as well.

But then it returned in the form of communism in the mid-19th century.
