Kleptomania is the well-known impulse control disorder which causes people to steal repeatedly, even though they neither need nor desire the object they’re taking. It’s the same kinda feeling bankers and corporate fat-cats must have when they’re hoovering up the money of the poor. They don’t really need it, they just have an urge. Maybe we should feel sorry for them? Naaa.
Let’s begin by saying this complex has nothing to do with the singer Madonna, who right this moment is busy using Pokemon Go to catch herself a bunch of new children down the park.
