The Sackler family, which grew into one of the nation’s wealthiest dynasties through sales of the widely abused painkiller OxyContin, could emerge from a legal settlement under negotiation with its personal fortunes largely intact, according to an analysis reviewed by The Washington Post and people familiar with the discussions.

All the Sacklers want is what any of us would want: to be left alone in our Fortress of Insolence counting our billions.


The oligarchs that run this travesty called human civilization can be best described as sentient termites. They, like the Sacklers and the millions of Sackler wannabes who are slaves to both greed and ambition, lack even the most rudimentary concept of ethics.

Even though they are methodical, calculating and quite devoted to metabolizing all that metaphorical "wood" out there, they are cognitively unable to see the inevitably destructive result of their termite activity.

You see, these sentient termites have never, in their wildest imaginations, considered the downside of their penchant for eating "wood" (i.e. finite amount of "wood" means limiting "wood" eating). Eat wood, now and forever, is their mission in life.  Eating more wood equals "good". Eating less wood equals "bad".

The cohesiveness in the societal framework that is undermined/corrupted by sentient termite activity, to the point that guarantees catastrophic failure to provide some equity and stability to human society, is not a "cause and effect" issue for these termites.

That said, it is important to make a distinction between sentient and non-sentient termites. The non-sentient termites are governed by instinct. The sentient ("greed is good" Oligarchs) termites are governed by irrational hubris.

What do I mean by that? Aren't the sentient termites "hard boiled real world business people"? NOT REALLY.

Yes, it is true that the sentient termites, while quite skilled at seeking material goods and services to feed their boundless Narcissism for their own pleasure, are very much aware of threats to their physical well being. That is fairly typical rational (predator) behavior.

YET, they have well paid teams of lying lawyers and (s)think tank propagandist mouth pieces continuously pushing irrational memes like "Creative Destruction", "The rich are job creators", "Those who work owe their living to the rich who hired them", etc.

A cursory analysis of this amazing inability to feel any empathy whatsoever for the workers that made these sentient termites rich, to the point of demonizing the workers as "parasites", while glorifying sentient termite, obviously parasitic behavior, is simply irrational, as well as Orwellian.

It seems that the "sentience" of these Oligarchic Termites, at some level, involves carefully thought out malice aforethought "blame the victim" strategy for the purpose of keeping the exploited workers in the dark about who is REALLY eating all that metaphorical wood out there.

On further analysis of the modus operandi of these 'too clever by a half' sentient termites, we find something quite surprising; they really, honestly believe that the long term effect of their profit over people and planet "business model" is every bit as wealth and power enhancing as the short term effect continues to be.

At this point, a rational person would question the sanity of these sentient termites, it being that, in science, 4 minus 5 always equals a negative number.

Let me explain what their problem is. Sentient termites have been eating their own Orwellian propaganda BULLSHIT. They have swallowed it whole. They have demonized ethical behavior and glorified unethical destructive behavior.

Their sentience has been corrupted by their serially mendacious happy talk. These true believers in a positive result from negative numbers are now firmly committed to their civilzation destroying trajectory (i.e. economic growth through profit over people and planet).

The sentient termites are, and always have been, their own worst enemy. Do not expect any solutions designed to mitigate, and then reverse, Catastrophic Climate Change from them. They don't just ignore ethics; they DEFINE "successful behavior" as UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR.

NO ETHICS = NO SOLUTION, period.
