Oligarchies run on sociopathy. Warmongers need to condition themselves not to care about the suffering and death that will be caused by their instigation of selfish interest-serving military conflict. Robber barons need to teach themselves the lower classes deserve it if they’re hurt by economic exploitation. Those that instigate environmental disasters for their own gain need to develop a subconscious disrespect for the communities and planet they’re destroying. The whole system is based on rejecting empathy and becoming emotionally detached from the world around oneself, clearing the psychological path for unlimited power grabs.
