Truest Thing I've Read in a While

Dmitry Chernikov (whose blog I recently discovered and happy to have done so) has an excellent post exposing egalitarianism for the "cheap envy" it depends on.
If the standard of living of today’s average worker were to reach the level of today’s average millionaire, and the standard of living of today’s average millionaire were to reach the level of today’s average billionaire, then this apparently happy development would not, oddly enough, cause the egalitarians to shut up. They’ll continue to cry bloody murder even if, as Rothbard puts it, the workers “only enjoy one yacht apiece while capitalists enjoy five or six.”
I would highly recommend this quick read.
