  • Lower class is dominated by psychopaths and wolves. They are out for themselves, often out of circumstances. Wolves may sacrifice themselves so an external ideal may live - Sin Nombre movie - also in I will be a wolf so that my child can prosper. This offers hope for those of integrity. The wolves may protect them. Even if the wolves have evil.

  • How to deal with malevolent people ?

    • Use them as an example of how not to treat people and what not to be.

    • Become strong over time so that you can be the kind of person who can stop these people.

  • How to deal with people who are not malevolent but misguided?

    • Help them see the light. Also help yourself in case they are right and you are wrong.
