Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, that's a point, self-centered does not mean evil, it means bad.. it will be 6 in the scale.

But the attack on Ireland...difficult to square with a purely self-centered view of the world. And still...

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude

But the attack on Ireland...

"If we don't do it you know somebody else will." and "While the music is playing you have to dance." That is high amongst the evil elements -- the entire business context in which they operate. And that environment was purchased at great expense and effort with significant amounts of their money. Unless it is somehow different in Germany. So, back to a three or a four.
