"The problem with humanity is individual humans.
It is not government; it is not ideology; it is not Hitler or Satan. It is individual humans. They always find someone or something to blame, but that is a lie. The problem is that too many people are individualistic to the point of denying reality, a condition we call solipsism.
This takes us back to the Greek ideal, which is seeing hubris — or rising above one’s place in a natural hierarchy by moral character and ability — as the primary evil of humankind, and the destroyer of civilization. Like all effective evils, it takes many forms, and the form is always pleasing to lure in the unwary, which is why pleasant-sounding ideas like egalitarianism, tolerance, diversity, inclusion and pluralism are the cloak of evil in the current era."
