There would always be something for envious men to covet. They would be jealous of what another man wanted and dreamed of, knowing that that mans dreams were better, fuller, and with more meaning than their own petty dreams of vulgarity and want.
The world envious men create is a world filled with clones begging a tyrant to fulfill their covetous dreams. Competition would be deemed as evil, because God forbid anybody should create something of value that another man doesn't possess. That would cause envious men to covet that value, to be tempted to use violence to take what they covet. Producing something of value would be deemed as evil.
The world envious people create is a world of mutually assured destruction; an equality of misery.
