That gets to it. They want to replace this flawed society with a utopia but in order to do that they need to burn the current society down to the ground. Inflation, collapsing societal trust, economic chaos, violent crime, these are not negatives, they are means to achieving their end goal.
The problem is that there are a lot of people who are going to get burned as they tear it down.
They don't see you as a human being. You are simply an obstacle in their path toward creating an idyllic society, not idyllic for peons like you and me but for them.
What do you do with an obstacle?
You remove it.
What do they plan to do with you and me?
By any means necessary and since they are also sociopaths, it turns out that if you suffer horrifically along the way, that is just an added bonus to these animals.
You can't reason with them, you can't co-exist with them. They have declared total war on you, your family and your people. The time is fast approaching when we will find out if they will succeed or fail but either way the losers aren't going to be around afterward.
