The Sociopathic Society
A couple of years ago, a Canadian serial killer was transferred to a medium-security prison where he was given a cell mate. Soon after, he killed the cell mate, and when questioned about why, he simply said, “I’m a sociopath!” Now imagine what society would look like if we elected people like this. The problem is, we don’t have to imagine that, because, as disturbing as it may sound, that is exactly the type of society we live in: one which is built upon sociopathic ideas, with sociopathic institutions, and promotes sociopathic behavior: manipulation, lies, cheating, destruction, stealing, killing and doing anything to get power, lacking compassion and empathy, removing emotional obstacles to promotional objectives.
If we elect serial killers to office, how can we be surprised when he kills masses of people? Clinton’s Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, when questioned about the US sanctions on Iraq having killed over half a million children, simply replied, “It was worth it.” Not so very different from the serial killer’s reply: “I’m a sociopath… I’m not going to stop!”
