Wars – 

 Long ago, wars mostly became necessary to “correct” an errant tribal leadership back to the Proper Way, if others knew a monarch or such had lost ir.

Since that fabled “then”, the despots have cunningly wrestled power from the Wise, and now, after innumerable generations, the despot’s cunning is marketed as capitalism and sold to anyone rich enough. 

So wars are fought purely for profit.

Clearly, though clearly NOT to the nutjob warmongerers, monarchs, bureaucrats or slaves, the perpetrators of modern warfare, are at war with their own psychosis,  but take their “ISSHOOOS” out on any and everyone but their inner tyrant – the very psychosis they’re madly in love with.
