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.

The Fates are kind.
