Reality and truth contradict the fantastic prism of this heinous perspective.
I'll give you and shav how there def are
some clearly malevolent powerful people completely intent on manipulating the less powerful and thereby hurting them whilst progressing their own benefits--- the soulless criminal George Soros comes to mind immediately--- but even in their twisted and poisoned minds, they are convinced they're doing what they're doing for other's own good.
And such a immature and wholly unsophisticated view has no answer for folks such as Bill Gates or Warren Buffet, both of whom are working tirelessly to alleviate some of the pitfalls of the human condition.
Contrast what they're doing with the actions of Soros.
One side looks to solve problems (right, wrong or neutral) while the other looks to make problems in order to stir and steer toward their vision of utopia.
The world contains both.
Those in between, who think the game ends here, are the ones causing most of the problem.
Unaccustomed to wealth, power, they get a taste and their greed takes over, so they will game the system in order to both maintain and increase their position.
Formally, they're known as politicians.
Here, the ratio is heavily weighted in the direction of socio- and psychopathic people.
However, they don't come to the dance with any of the necessary fodder for their manipulative cannons.
They show up and we lavish it all on them.
