Attitudes Leading to Our Demise

The world is becoming absurd. I am constantly reminded by Barbara Tuchman's famous saying, which dangerously applies to where we stand today:

“Three outstanding attitudes – obliviousness to the growing disaffection of constituents, primacy of self-aggrandizement, [and the] illusion of invulnerable status – are persistent aspects of folly”

Does this remind you of the world we live in and the arrogance of power we witness today?
