On the one hand they fully understand that this insanity is doomed. That it will inevitably bring about disaster so terrible that no one can predict, or really even comprehend, the global consequences of it. Yet, they have enthusiastically jumped in and exploited the insanity to their own benefit.

Do they believe that, if they can get enough before it collapses they will be spared? Or perhaps they think they can do enough good with their ill-gotten gains to make it a wash, that they can buy forgiveness a la Carnegie?
