Prosperity can lead to a focus on small fringe issues that dominate our attention, preventing us from addressing bigger problems and fostering social cohesion. This cycle is driven by a sense of unfairness and envy, with some feeling that they can never attain what others have. The result is an inability to come together as a society and a growing division.
