"Follow the Money." That's almost always a sound course of action if you want to know what's really going on. And where it leads, far too often, is into the heart of darkness collectively known as "Wall Street." A term that also includes people like the Koch Brothers, Exxon, Wal-Mart, or any Mega-Mega enterprise. Somewhere, in the center of those entities are clones of the author of this confessional piece, or a variant thereof. As near as I can tell, reading this, the author is not a sociopath. So, there's clearly hope for him that his epiphany, his moment of grace, will stick, and he will be able to save his soul. But for the sociopathic money addict, alas, there will never be a moment of grace. That's what makes them so dangerous to civilized life. Or, with climate change already upon us, so utterly deadly to life on this planet.
