      To comprehend how someone could be so unrelentingly ruthless and self serving.

      Stewart compared these individuals to crack heads and I believe that assessment is more accurate than Stewart realizes.

      Some people have a sex addiction.  Others are gambling addicts.  These people are wealth addicts.  Just like any addict they will lie, cheat, manipulate, con and sometimes (often) murder to get their fix.  Their behavior is a result of compulsion and that compulsion is fueled by utter self-dishonesty and delusion.

      The policies that these wealth addicts push cause widespread sufferring and death, yet they are unfazed.  You can call it evil if you like, but it is what it is.

      "Ubermensch" is German for "Douchebag"
