"it would be funny, were it not so tragic. i guess that is what tragedy is, funny/pathetic that has very serious consequences.

"where does all of this go?"

I read a book that was devoted to answering this question. Its title is Atlas Shrugged and its answer is that it doesn't make sense to destroy that which keeps you alive if your goal is to live, but if life is not your aim, if you hate the good for being the good, the healthy and the beautiful for being healthy and beautiful, and reality for being reality, self-destruction follows quite effortlessly. The only caveat is that one must not allow oneself to know what one is aiming at.
