Covetousnous, envy, jealousy

In a society lacking in hoarding and abounding in acts of generosity, it makes little sense to covet the wealth of one's neighbor. 
Covetousnous, envy, jealousy all are signs of a society that is unwell, whose members are given to hoarding what they have and coveting what they lack. 
During disasters, covetousnous comes across as unbecoming because it stands in such stark contrast to the otherwise prevailing acts of generosity.
