Rabbi Eliezer HaKappar taught:
Jealousy, desire, and honor remove one from the world.
(Ethics of the Fathers 4:21).
Jealousy: For example, "How dare she receive more votes than me?"
Desire: The desire to continue to pursue the acquisition of wealth, when one's position requires one to focus on governance
Honor: The assumption that one's people should consider him deserving of glory regardless of his actions.
Remove את האדם / et ha'adam / the human from the world: These negative dispositions damage the integrity of the society and make it less humane and less human.
All three of these negative dispositions involve boundary crossing. When the crossing is modeled by the leader of a land, it is to be expected that the entire leadership structure of the land will follow the same model, to the detriment of the 'world', the society, and the world.
