Guess they never read “The Tell-Tale Heart”
Someone with no guilt is a sociopath. They may be nice to others face to face, but they’ll do whatever it takes to get what they want, casualties be damned.
We live in a sociopathic society.
How did this happen?
First, America lost its place as the inviolate, the undisputed leader.
It started with Nixon and then Trump put a stake in its heart by removing the U.S.A. from compacts under the notion of “America First.”
Just like “Loughlin First” and “Huffman First” and “Rich But Not Famous First.”
You don’t get there by luck. And to stay there you have to continue to employ an edge. They try to assuage their guilt via charity. But even Trump didn’t complete the circle on that.
They feel they’re entitled.
And we eat it all up until we don’t.
It was Reagan and the global economy that blew this country up.
Reagan made greed good,
Michael Douglas just articulated it in a movie.
Suddenly there were people richer than the rest. And by time we hit the 21st century it was clear you could not get to the destination unless you had certain privileges. Mostly, an elite education and connections.
Funny how everybody at Harvard not implicated in this scandal helps each other.
As for getting an MBA, that’s what it’s all about – who you meet, who you can leverage – what you learn in the classroom is nearly irrelevant.
And then came globalization.
Inevitable and to our advantage. But not everybody’s advantage. If you weren’t educated, you were left behind. Oh, we heard about lottery winners, athletes, but the rank and file saw their gigs go overseas and suddenly they couldn’t afford the lifestyle they were accustomed to. They ended up divorced and on drugs.
But the elite considered them throwaway people. Not only the right wing elite, the left wing too.
That’s why Hillary lost, she was out of touch.
The scary little thing is the left wing elite is still out of touch. They think they earned their position. They worked hard, round the clock, and they want the benefits.
As for those people in front of them, they’re bending the rules, so why shouldn’t they?
Bill Gates is lauded for his philanthropy today, but let’s put him on the stand and ask him why he charged computer companies for Windows even if they didn’t put it in the box.
Or Steve Jobs.
Cancer got him, but we want to know about his anti-poach agreements. Continue reading
