The Cult of the Individual is, in its essence, all about SELFISHNESS. This amoral ethos has inevitably resulted in the current situation where a small minority of the most selfish have taken possession of the majority of the world’s wealth.
And, because these individuals are psychopathically driven, they will not stop appropriating until they own and control all that they CAN own and control — and they will use ANY means necessary to accomplish this.
If that means turning the entire planet into a combination prison camp and global graveyard, well then so be it…. that is fine with them.
