Be a bully and collect followers who admire bulliesNever apologize, especially when wrongHave no principles other than momentary self-aggrandizement (corollary: lie constantly, and lie about having lied)Obsess endlessly over superficial markers of popularity (corollary: react instantly and without prudence to any threats to popularity)Gain reinforcement and validation solely by surrounding yourself with material opulenceReward sycophancy in those closest to you and punish them for any setbacks, weaknesses, or signs of independenceNever concern yourself with collateral damage from any of the above Moral of the story: I don't have his money or office, but I'm wealthier because I have enough. And I know how long a damned necktie is meant to hang.
