"Those who worship before the idols of profit" and are the high priests are the psychopaths and sociopaths. Removing them from power is now a matter of life and death for the human race.
Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and a godlike technology is a lethal mix that is destroying the ecology and, probably, the human race in the sixth mass extinction event the technology is causing. History itself is a river of blood. The thinking of clinical psychopaths is so different from normal thinking that any analysis that leaves out this factor fails from the outset. The tragedy is that psychopaths have always ruled thanks to their inability to feel guilt or empathy which allows them to quickly rise and assume positions of power. In other words history has been largely run by the insane and humans have progressed despite it.
In the U.S. and probably in the U.K. there is overwhelming evidence that the elite circles have transformed themselves into an exclusive club of sociopaths, psychopaths and trusted sycophants. Our collective situation as normal humans grows more perilous every day as our insane destructive elites not only possess weapons of mass destruction but are blindly causing an environmental catastrophe.
"We find ourselves in a situation where economic philosophies that celebrate selfishness can be implemented through a web of legal and financial tools that elevate and reward those individuals with psychological tendencies toward self-interest — the same people who also have a predisposition to game social contexts to their advantage regardless of impacts on others. Thus the psychopathic corporation was forged as a Frankenstein monster that enabled the constant flow of psychopathic blood, continuously replenished by the 1% of the population born into psychopathy in each new generation, to rise into positions of power as stock traders, corporate executives, and corruptible politicians."

"The most important characteristics of a psychopath revolve not around violence, but around lack of empathy, selfishness, and manipulation. True, some psychopaths may use these traits to commit crimes, but others rely on their manipulative nature and ability to charm for other things. Many psychopaths actually find great success in the business world thanks to their ruthless nature — a disproportionate number of CEOs are actually psychopaths. Some other popular career paths for psychopaths include law, media, and being salespeople.”

Differences Between a Psychopath vs Sociopath
"Psychology researchers generally believe that psychopaths tends to be born — that it’s a genetic predisposition — while sociopaths tend to be made by their environment. …
Psychopathy and sociopathy are different cultural labels applied to the diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder. Up to 3 percent of the population may qualify for a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder. This disorder is more common amongst males and mostly seen in people with an alcohol or substance abuse problem, or in forensic settings such as prisons. Psychopaths tend to be more manipulative, can be seen by others as more charming, lead a semblance of a normal life, and minimize risk in criminal activities. Sociopaths tend to be more erratic, rage-prone, and unable to lead as much of a normal life. When sociopaths engage in criminal activity, they tend to do so in a reckless manner without regard to consequences."
Brain scans can now detect psychopaths and, along with other tests, the slippier sociopaths. They should be given like random drug tests to all in positions of authority. But I suppose they would kill us all before that was allowed so the odds are is that they will continue to go unchecked and may soon destroy the human race pursuing their short term goals.
