The sociopaths who walk among us

Jesse – is he mad or right? I think he”s right. Has he overstepped the mark?

Not all sociopaths wield knives and knotted cords. Some wear suits, and are exceptionally intelligent and articulate, obsessively driven, and are able to use and undermine the law and the rules for their advantage, like weapons. It is never about the win, never about the money. It is about the kill, the expression of their hatred, about elevating themselves with the suffering of others.

Bind, torture, kill. Not only with ropes and knives, but also with power and money, and the subversion of law. Lawlessness is their addiction, their will to power.

In the end what they want is to fill the hole in their being, which has tormented them from childhood, by destroying others, and to differentiate themselves casino online from all those other lower beings whom they hold in contempt. They find no commonality with human happiness and the normal life, because of the hatred they have for themselves, and their sense of alienation from all that is human. Their compulsion is to rape and destroy.

When societies become lax and complacent, these sociopaths can possess great political power through great amounts of unprincipled money. And over time they become almost anti-human, destroyers of all that is good, all that is life, all that offends their insatiable sickness with its goodness. They twist the public against itself, and turn a broad sweep of society into their killing grounds.

This is the undeniable lesson of the last century. There are monsters, and they walk among us.

    Just look at politicians.

    A large proportion are totally self obsessed and either deeply narcissistic like the Wintertons http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/feb/18/nicholas-winterton-first-class-train-mps-expenses or else actively sociopathic, like John Edwards. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/edwards-admits-affair-as-wife-battled-cancer-889269.html

    These are not isolated examples, they are representative of the type of person who wants to boss other people about. The interfering self important busybody.

    And my ex-wife is one of them, as determined by the DSM IV.

    There was an interesting docu-drama about Robespierre which put flesh on the bones of the story of a sociopath. He was a keen follower of Voltaire who had described his own plan for a ‘perfect society’. The trouble came when some disagreed with him. A combination of unchecked power, no self-doubt, and the claim to be acting for the common good led to the mass death warrants and
    in one case orders to shell a town to the ground to make an example of them.
    More recent examples in a less extreme form? Raid on private pension funds, WMD claims, cash for peerages, attempt to get 90-day detention and, for balance, theft of ‘dormant’ bank accounts?

      Yes, but did you do a psychology profile of Louis XVIth or Napoleon who fired cannons into the grand place full of Royalists. Without protein cake can make you sick. It takes more than one man to destroy an empire. The Royalists mortally wounded themselves as is the natural way of politics.

    Marcus Brigstock is a classic example of this type. Read the Daily Mail interview – what a nasty, self-centred piece of human detritus he is. Most rabidly left people are totally screwed up – sociopaths are exactly what they are. Unfortunately they now hold sway in every area of influence. The question is – what do we do about it. I think the only answer is do what they did – infiltrate and take over.

      Infiltration would mean actually having to voluntarily spend periods of time in their company and pretending to be one of them. Rules that idea out me for David. I’d be spotted as a shark in the fish tank in minutes.
