And if you had a shred of dignity, intelligence, integrity, why oh why would you work for the Ugliest American (see previous post)? Maybe you see a bit of your own Ugliness reflected in him? And you want to amplify it?
But silly human...
You can't out-Ugly the Ugliest American. And he will undermine you, torture you with lies and vacillations. You will not be able to keep up with this dynamo of Ugliness. You will fall short. And then, he will hate you too.
The Ugliest American demands loyalty. Total loyalty. But no one, no matter who it is, no matter how hard they try, can show enough loyalty. Just can't be done. No one can submit, grovel and offer up every last shred of everything decent thing in their beings. It just isn't possible. Any sentient being will cling and hang on to at least one small spark.
There is always one last spark. Tiny as it may be. And that will enrage the Ugliest American. Because that little spark does not exist in his own being. He will want to kill it in those around him. And he will. Why? Because he is the Ugliest American.
And you aren't. Even if you want to be.
