(They have their own interpretation of reality)

A curious fact of human nature is that normal people will do for God and country what they would never even dream of doing for themselves. And, there are always others who are seeking a way to exploit that characteristic to their advantage.

Those who have found it are particularly adept at convincing themselves that what they are doing for themselves is really for the "common good."

Look closer and you'll see they think that their "interpretation" is the only one that matters.
