Television screenshot of an injured and captured mercenary from the Libyan town of Misrata. Part of a rebel army unit that had been shelling civilian areas and sniping from rooftops at anything that moved.

The Work relating to the increasingly common mentality of ” I don’t care about anyone else just so long as I’m doing ok ” and how it is inexorably destroying the social fabric of the entire world – this being a particularly archetypal example – along with the arms dealer, drug dealer, the abattoir worker, the rogue banker & multicorp’ executive, the Tory health minister etc etc
