Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hmm. Another way the word is used is in the sense that you should put your candle under a bushel, if it's a better or brighter candle than your neighbor has.
So the preference where I come from is that everyone is equally poor and equally stupid. Fuck lagom.

(Obviously I'm exaggerating and the use you mention is entirely correct. It's just that the equality comes at a price.)
