You need to buck up and do what needs to be done in order to become that cream of the crop, the best and brightest, the wisest and most Machiavellian, or a portion therein, perhaps supplanted by a tyrannical father. The convenience of pointing your imperious finger at minions and demanding the removal of a blight, ordering a sweet hooker from home and having it delivered through the back door, delivering to it personally through the back door then having it removed and buried somewhere you don't even need to consider, and purchasing FDA approval through blackmail for any drug you're scientists have concocted is all the rage!
In the 80's people wanted to be you and started destroying the world in order to achieve that, in the 90's people ignored you because they had enough drugs and didn't give a shit anymore, and now in the Naughties you're being ignored, decrepit and unable to lift that Scrooge-like finger high enough to lop off even a few heads. Paint a target on your chest, you're part of the 1% who does, not the 99% you take things from who do naught. Time to close up shop, and bury the past in the future.
