Spot on. Out of context, this could fuel dormant psychopaths to paint their fantasy in reality. I wonder if our good Sir Emerson inspired any so far :D

I wholeheartedly disbelieve there is a more lucid exposition about the nature of corporations than Ambrose's; and a more honest one.

This quote engulfs the source of most problems impeccably.

I've understood it thus: One of the greatest fears of humans is denial, hence those axing the branches were keeping the evil (from creeping onto their doorstep) temporarily, i.e. egocentric route.
