Jerks Can Be Found Wherever There Is Intelligent Life — And We Need to Stop Them...
"They use their extraordinary powers only to accumulate more power to themselves though often pretending it's for the greater good."
(See also: Narcissists 'irritating but successful' - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-44601198).
Mind you, that byline should be recognised as not letting most liberals, puritan busybodies and fundamentalists, off the hook. The main thing jerks want - is control. Even when they're walking down the street dumbly hoping their dark sunglasses will somehow transform passer-by's into something new and wonderful to their arc of glory, all that is is a simmering, walking controllaholism, right? Yes, right. Jerks are inherently weak, out of control, and generally a scourge upon the planet. Most studies bear this out.
For a more pedantic review of this massive problem, here are some of my tags - especially the first one. (I am going to have to see if I can merge some of these tags). Maybe you might easilly access the relatively recent link re: "How to deal with jerk people," (or whatever), in Psychology Today. Not sure if it's tagged below.

"We - (the IN crowd) - need to stop them..."
Note: Today, I have been thwarted and stalled by -
1 - CFS brain/fatigue
2 - so-called computer
3 - annoying neighbours in the heat...
Outside of this bedroom, the whole apartment is sweltering eek. Seriously, my dog and I might be dead by now if not for the fact that, after 5 years, I finally got an air conditioner. Happy dog. Count your blessings. One.
Made a bunch of roasted veggies last night, despite the entire kitchen being filled up with my sweat. The whole shack shimmies.
Global warming what a jerk.
