The Age of Arrogance

Of pharaohs, wealth, lies and a larger bullhorn

Part 3

A main reason for our individual and collective arrogance is our individual and collective wealth. 

The contemporary human need to ‘be somebody’

• “Arrogance is aggressive presumption.” 

• “Arrogance is an insulting way of thinking or behaving that comes from believing that you are better, smarter, or more important than other people.” 

• “Arrogance is an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions.” 

Part 2

None of these contemporary definitions satisfies me.
