Megalomania is a disease. It probably originates in the social order of our primate ancestors where the tribe existed in a small tight-knit group under the control of a silver-back male. There was one leader. Now everyone wants to be that silver-back and we all suffer the results.
The symptoms are poverty, inequality, disease, war, overpopulation, exploitation, religion, slavery, politics and injustice as the fall-out from the race for power.
Megalomania can be cured!
