Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
don't you understand?  

They worship domination for its own sake, and are forever creating narratives that justify their violent and abusive impulses.  

This is key.  These people are not sane:  They are abusers, perpetrators--natural criminals.  The similarity to Nazi philosophy should be obvious and telling.  

It is not even tribal, strictly speaking, in that the long-term well-being of the tribe does not signify.  

They are not rational in any sense of the word.  Economic theories are just a smoke screen, or an excuse.  Game theory and pay-off matrices will not predict their actions, but a study of the real behavior of psychopaths will.  

The Fates are kind.
