90. She goes into the "create your own reality" scenario
...which usually does afflict people into doing things that ultimately harm others, because of a narrower and narrower worldview. People who are powerful and rich become the naked king of that old fairy tale. Nobody will tell them the truth anymore, because they will fire anyone who gives them bad news. How many generals went through the Pentagon when Bush was in office before they found a yes man who would tell him what he wanted to hear?

Kind of like that Twilight Zone kid who killed everybody who didn't say or do "good things".
