Well, I'm neither jealous of rich people, nor would I want to win the lottery.
But I do want to point out that the vast majority of rich people dont deserve being rich even the tiniest bit more than people winning in the lottery. Because they merely won the lottery of birth instead of that other lottery.
So your distinction is defunct.
