What a strange species, humans

So infantile, obsessed with importance and status in everything.

Individuals with no conscience or empathy for others, aggressively pursue social positions that grant importance and status through force, do so by pretending that they are what they are not.

Through manipulation and subterfuge, deception, bribery, blackmail and murder - either personally or by proxy - they spend every waking moment on that quest for always more.

They find those that are willing - through deep pathological need to be led, dominated, and feel the 'safety of the herd' - to aid and abet them in their quest for godhood on earth.

And the rest of the population falls for it over, and over, and over again throughout the centuries.

That's the root imo. What you're saying here is a symptom.
