    I'm a humanist. So of course I see no real problem with globalization. Further, it is going to happen whether we desire it or not. We either adapt or we die.

    It sounds to me like the real question is "do you need others to be worse off just to feel better about yourself?"

    The voting is quite telling in that regard.

    Frankly though, I think in many cases being better off than other persons DOES make one feel better about themselves, however bad their lot.

    They can say "at least I'm not that guy". Even if only mentally...or subconsciously.


    I'm not sure any of us are free from those thoughts, however much we dislike them and work against them.

    BINGO! It sounds like you understand the message. Don't answer these questions out loud but think on them for a little bit.

    How much do you currently make? How would you feel if minimum wage became that amount tomorrow? Would you want a raise?

    I honestly cannot imagine making $7.25 an hour in today's economy. If I was honestly limited to those two choices as far as legal jobs go, I'd become a criminal and make some decent money instead.

    Thankfully, I'm not limited to those two choices, so I don't have to resort to crime.

    I don't see how this answers the question.

    What difference is there between "unacceptable" and "unacceptable"?

    Or, specifically, Americans or Europeans or wherever?? Where was this "research" carried out?
    It is true that there are always cultural differences to be considered. My memory says that there were cross cultural studies that found differences but that the general behavior was human and not cultural.

    This unscientific poll suggest that most people aren't impacted by their desire to be superior to others. Are they lying to us? Lying to themselves? What is going on?

    Unscientific and a very limited geography and culture.
    How many on here are from somewhere other than the US and how many of those answered your poll?
