A rough draft of my core idea (see also material on "dispositional" and "punitive"):

Solipsistic, individuals seek out the company of those who a) they can dominate, or b) who do not threaten the integrity of their own denials (ideally, who actually corroborate them, conspiratorially, which provides entertainment, validation, and other forms of social utility).
Those who maintain their autonomy without engaging in the co-dependent delusion are fiercely viewed as "other"; this is foundational to the fascistic in-group/out-group dynamic.

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
