The Holy Mother Catholic Church was full of psychopaths in the time of
Cesare Borgia, now it's mostly old codgers who like altar boys while the

The wheel of history grinds on as psychopaths move around in the society
and converge on the next big thing and corrupt it, because the one stable
thing in history is that psychopaths corrupt everything they touch.
