How many of humanity's horrifying wars have been started by human sociopaths, whether through faulty reasoning or ignorance, or to maximize their own wealth, position, power and prestige? All of them! Name one war begun to benefit all participants and further the growth of universal human welfare, by means of deliberate suffering, destruction and slaughter. Our civilization's inevitable destruction will arrive thanks to the all-too-human lunacy of an irresponsible and corrupted system which encouraged a positive feedback loop, wherby the uncontrolled greed of the few brought wealth which bought power, which brought more wealth- until any wisdom mankind had painfully gathered was overwhelmed by whim and ultimately fatal arrogance.
