At present being part of the project of humanity requires living under a set of constraints, control structures, and containments. Some of these are physical - both overt and covert - whilst others are beyond perceptual means. Power is a form of control that feeds upon itself in order to maintain its leverage. There are various theories that deal with the who the 'World Management Team' are, and I will not further elaborate this here.
What is interesting is the notion that pathological evil in humans is a dis-ease that affects many individuals. The nature of evil for political reasons has been named as Ponerology. In this essay Political Ponerology: A Science on The Nature of Evil adjusted for Political Purposes Andrew M. Lobaczewski's ideas are given commentary and additional quoted material by Laura Knight-Jadczyk, and is worth reading. A quote:
"Current day statistics tell us that there are more psychologically sick people than healthy ones. If you take a sampling of individuals in any given field, you are likely to find that a significant number of them display pathological symptoms to one extent or another. Politics is no exception, and by its very nature, would tend to attract more of the pathological “dominator types” than other fields. That is only logical, and we began to realize that it was not only logical, it was horrifyingly accurate; horrifying because pathology among people in power can have disastrous effects on all of the people under the control of such pathological individuals."
