Schadenfreude

Schadenfreude - the darker side is DNAed. Human beings had to fight with each other over limited resource - these resources had to be hunted. Every other human being was a competitor / an enemy. Wishing something wrong for or feeling a tinge of happiness when something goes wrong with someone else was intrinsic.

Later of course human beings found that collaboration is a better way to tackle the world (than to compete with everyone on everything).

That does not take away the innermost urges, even if they are repressed because society does not approve of them, to feel good when someone you are not close with slips.
