I was thinking that it has always struck me, that when studying politicians and businessman in media they always seems to be totally out of empathy. They care about money and money alone. If they give an answer concerning people’s or animals health or daily life, it`s always based on some stupid economic calculation that can`t be changed due to the risk of money shortage. Politicians and Bankers are all psychopaths. Just take stock traders for ex, which are proven more psychotic than actual psychopaths in mental institutions. That doesn’t surprise me! Does it surprise you? You have to know why the psychopaths that rule the World don’t care about the working people or coming future generations, or morality, right and wrong, or anything but money. What is the description of a Psychopath ? Psychopathy is a mental disorder primarily characterized primarily by a lack of empathy. Politician does not have empathy. So they ARE the root to all evil. Both the financial elite and their servants who maintain this system, appear to exhibit behavior that is consistent with symptoms associated with a medical disorder known as psychopathy.(*) Psychopaths, also called sociopath`s, are categorized as those who exhibit superficial charm and intelligence, and are absent of delusions or nervousness.
Their traits include:
– Frequent lying
– Deceitful and manipulative behavior (either goal-oriented or for the delight of the act itself)
– Lack of remorse or shame
– Antisocial behavior
– Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
– Incapacity for love
– Poverty of general emotions
– Loss of insight
– Unresponsiveness in personal relations
– A frequent need for excitement
– An inflated self-worth
– An ability to rationalize their behavior
– A need for complete power
– A need to dominate others
Now all this above fits well on any Politician or Banker. Psychopathy is basically an emotional disorder. The book, The Psychopath, by James Blair, Karina Blair, and Derek Mitchell, states, “The crucial aspect of psychopathy is … the emotional impairment.” According to Dr. J. Reid Meloy’s book, The Psychopathic Mind, although psychopaths don’t feel emotion in a normal sense, they do experience boredom, envy, exhilaration, contempt, sadistic pleasure, anger, and hints of depression. Generally, those who believe it’s caused by environmental factors use the term sociopath, and believers of the biological theory use the term psychopath. Psychopathy closely resembles Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD or APD) or Conduct Disorder (CD) as outlined in the DSM-IV. These disorders are detected using the Psychopathy Checklist-Revisited (PCL-R), the DSM-IV, and other diagnostics. These character types, comprise about 4% of the population and span every level of society. Psychopaths can be found in every race, culture, profession and class. Because the term psychopath has been used to describe APD types and sociopath`s, in this chapter I’ll use it as a universal label for these three character types.
Later I will explain how psychopaths always mask themselves when seeking positions of power, it will help to remember the following: If a rational person tries to apply their logic while trying to understand the reason for an objective or act of a psychopath, they will fail. This will be explained in more detail later. Likewise, when a rational person hears of the possibility that a massive lie has been told to a population by a trusted leader, and they attempt to use their logic to determine whether or not such a lie is possible, they will usually not believe the truth (that they have fallen for a huge lie). The reason for this is that although most of us can identify with small lies, we find it difficult to conclude that such a massive lie is possible. When I use the term massive lie, I don’t just mean a complete falsehood regarding a major event, but also the scope of its influence (global) and the amount of people who have fallen for it. In his book, The Mask of Sanity, Dr. Hervey Cleckley, says that even during the most “solemn perjuries” they show “no difficulty at all in looking anyone tranquilly in the eyes.” He adds that they will “lie about any matter, under any circumstances.” He explains that it is difficult to express how completely straightforward they appear when telling a blatant lie.
“The great masses of people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.” – Adolph Hitler
“Lying, deceiving, and manipulation are natural talents for psychopaths,” agreed Dr. Robert Hare, in his book, Without Conscience. “When caught in a lie or challenged with the truth, they are seldom perplexed or embarrassed they simply change their stories or attempt to rework the facts so that they appear to be consistent with the lie.”
Psychopaths are always able to justify their actions, no matter how brutal. They have, “an ability to rationalize their behavior so that it appears warranted, reasonable, and justified,” says Dr. Cleckley. Dr. Hare added, “Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the devastating effects their actions have on others. Often they are completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, [and] are not sorry for the pain and destruction they have caused,” which, says Dr. Hare, “is associated with a remarkable ability to rationalize their behavior.”
Psychopathy is usually untreatable. Most therapists won’t work with them because they often end up damaged in the process.
Dr. Hare explained, “Such counseling would be wasted on psychopaths.” Some of them will even reflect the wishes of the therapist and pretend to be getting better. In his book, People of The Lie, psychiatrist Dr. Scott Peck had this to say: “Among themselves therapists will not infrequently refer to a patient’s psychopathology as being ‘overwhelming.’ We mean this literally. We literally feel overwhelmed by the labyrinthine mass of lies and twisted motives … into which we will be drawn if we attempt to work with such people…”
Wikipedia describes that, “traditional therapeutic approaches actually make them, if not worse, then far more adept at manipulating others and concealing their behavior. They are generally considered to be not only incurable but also untreatable.” Basically psychopaths are the way they are for life. In most legal jurisdictions they are considered sane. So technically, they’re not mentally ill, just different. Dr. Scott Peck concludes, “I have learned nothing in twenty years that would suggest that evil people can be rapidly influenced by any means other than raw power. They do not respond,” he says, “to either gentle kindness or any form of spiritual persuasion with which I am familiar with.”
Where Are They?
When people hear the word psychopath, most think of the famous serial killers locked away in prison. However, most don’t end up in prison or mental hospitals. Dr. Cleckley wrote, “The true difference between them and the psychopaths who continually go to jails or to psychiatric hospitals is that they keep up a far better and more consistent outward appearance of being normal.” “This outward appearance,” says Dr. Cleckley, is essentially a mask, which, “may include business or professional careers that continue in a sense successful, and which are truly successful when measured by financial reward or by the casual observer’s opinion of real accomplishment.” “Many psychopaths never go to prison or any other facility,” agreed Dr. Hare. “They appear to function reasonably well as lawyers, doctors, psychiatrists, academics, mercenaries, police officers, cult leaders, military personnel, business people, writers, artists, entertainers, and so forth without breaking the law.” He continued, “Their intelligence, family background, social skills, and circumstances permit them to construct a facade of normalcy.”
“Corrupt and callous politicians, social or career fast climbers, authoritarian leaders, abusing and aggressive persons, etc., are among them” wrote Dr. Renato Sabbatini in his article, The Psychopath’s Brain. “A common characteristic,” says Dr. Sabbatini, “is that they engage systematically in deception and manipulation of others for personal gain. In fact, many successful and adapted non-violent sociopath can be found in our society.”
Most of these people are not just right in your churches, schools, charitable organizations, and workplaces, but by their very nature, they are likely running them.
It is a core trait of the psychopath to place themselves in positions of influence, not for public service, but for power. “The experience of pleasure is not reciprocal for the psychopath,” stated Dr. Meloy, “it is available only through sadistic channels of power and control.” Achieving power for the sake of having power is the nature of the psychopath. “They love to have power and control over others,” agreed Dr. Hare.
The need for absolute power over others and the wish to inflict pain for the enjoyment of watching others suffer, are almost never apparent to the casual observer. The reason for this is that another core trait of the psychopath is disguise. So unfortunately, these individuals usually mask themselves as good-natured people. If they have tremendous wealth, you can bet that they’ll create charitable organizations as part of their mask. They are well aware that their mental makeup is drastically different from the majority. They have a sixth sense for detecting and exploiting any weakness you may have. At a very early age they learn that they can inflict mental and emotional harm on others with ease. They also learn how to detect others like themselves out of a crowd of normal people.
Beginning in their childhood, most of them learn to mimic normal emotional reactions in order to blend in with society. An article on Dr. Hare’s website called, Psychopaths Among Us, by Robert Hercz, describes how Dr. Hare was contacted by Nicole Kidman, who wanted his advice on how to play the part of a psychopath for her film, Malice. Dr. Hare uses the anecdote of a psychopath who had just witnessed an accident where a mother watched her child get killed by a car. There’s blood all over the place, and the psychopath experiences no emotion, but instead, is trying to avoid getting blood on her shoes. The psychopath notices the mother’s emotional reaction to the accident and is fascinated. She goes home, looks in the mirror, and begins to mimic the facial expressions of the mother. “That’s the psychopath,” revealed Dr. Hare.
Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, states that, “any emotions which the primary psychopath exhibits are the fruits of watching and mimicking other people’s emotions.” They are adept at, “using their charm and chameleonlike abilities to cut a wide swath through society and leaving a wake of ruined lives behind them,” Dr. Hare warns. “More often than not,” says Dr. Cleckley, “the typical psychopath will seem particularly agreeable and make a distinctly positive impression when he is first encountered. Alert and friendly in his attitude, he is easy to talk with and seems to have a good many genuine interests. There is nothing at all odd or queer about him, and in every respect he tends to embody the concept of a well-adjusted, happy person.”
“Psychopaths are often witty and articulate,” concurred Dr. Hare. “They can be amusing and entertaining conversationalist, ready with quick and clever comeback, and can tell unlikely but convincing stories that cast themselves in a good light. They can be very effective in presenting themselves well and are often very likable and charming.” Remember, most of them don’t psychically hurt people, so this is about mental and emotional domination. To accomplish these objectives, they will use their mask of sanity to place themselves in positions within your community. These positions may include school boards, charitable organizations, churches, politics, law enforcement, or any position which they believe will offer them power over others. These are the places where most psychopaths end up, not jail.
A Different Species
Some researchers agree that the traits exhibited by these people produce a division stronger than age, race, and religion, which places them in a new category of people. In other words, these people are almost not human as we know it. The word antisocial does not describe someone who prefers to sit at home rather than attend gatherings. More accurately it means antihuman.
Most people can’t bring themselves to understand the mind-set of a psychopath. Dr. Hare explained, “Imagining the world as the psychopath experiences it is close to impossible.” In his book, Political Ponerology: A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes, Dr. Andrew M. Lobaczewski wrote, “The pathocratic world, the world of pathological egotism and terror, is so difficult to understand for people raised outside the scope of this phenomenon that they often manifest childlike naivety?, even if they have studied psychopathology and are psychologists by profession.” But, if you can, try to imagine someone who seeks power for no reason other than to have power, or someone who deceives just to experience the delight of having done so. Or someone who tortures another person physically or emotionally for the enjoyment of watching them suffer. Imagine someone doing these things, and not losing a moment of sleep at night (zero remorse). And add to all this, the ability to conceal themselves from an extremely naive public. Psychopaths are essentially aliens that look human. Probably one of the best skills to learn is how to detect and avoid a psychopath.
“The typical person, of whatever nationality, wants only to enjoy success in his job, to be able to afford a reasonably high standard of living complete with leisure and travel,” describes Gary Allen. “He wants to provide for his family in sickness and in health and to give his children a sound education. His ambition stops there,” says Allen. “He has no desire to exercise power over others, to conquer other lands or people’s, to be king.” He continues, “Since he has no lust for power, it is difficult for him to imagine that there are others who have [and] who march to a far different drum.” He asks, “Why should we assume there are no such men today with perverted lusts for power?” In my opinion, we shouldn’t because we know that they do exist, and consist of about 4% of the population during any period. “And if these men happen to be billionaires,” ponders Allen, “is it not possible that they would use men like Hitler and Lenin as pawns to size power for themselves?” As I’ve demonstrated, true history supports this claim exactly. Dr. Hare refers to them as “interspecies predators.” “There is a class of individuals who have been around forever and who are found in every race, culture, society and walk of life,” he says. “If you think about it,” he adds, “you will realize that what is missing in this picture are the very qualities that allow human beings to live in social harmony.” “It is not a pretty picture,” he warns, “and some express doubt that such people exist.”
A 2005, report entitled, Antisocial Personality, Sociopathy, and Psychopathy, by North Carolina Wesleyan College, describes them as, “morally depraved individuals who represent the ‘monsters’ in our society. They are unstoppable and untreatable predators whose violence is planned, purposeful and emotionless.” In addition to carrying out goal-oriented acts, the psychopath will also deceive and create chaos for no reason other than the enjoyment of doing so. “He will,” says Dr. Cleckley, “in fact, commit such deeds in the absence of any apparent goal at all.”
This critical factor is often the one which baffles most rational people. When seeking an explanation for the behavior of a psychopath, they will attempt to apply reason. But, when dealing with a psychopath, we must understand that psychopathy is the reason.
Psychopaths in Politics
If this 4% of the population exists at all levels of society at any given period, is it possible that some would seek top positions of influence? Of course. Remember, a need for absolute power over others is a core trait of the psychopath. Goal-oriented deceitfulness, superficial charm, an outward friendly appearance, and having no remorse, are other traits which will allow them to achieve their goals.
If they are also people of tremendous wealth, they will definitely use this to further their objectives. And because deceitfulness is a core psychopathic trait, this will probably be done by creating a humanitarian front organization. Evil people are often busy building for themselves various fronts for disguise and to further their ambitions. Dr. Peck described, “They are likely to exert themselves more than most in their continuing effort to obtain and maintain an image of high respectability.”
So, unlike in the movies, evil does not reveal itself as the bad guy dressed in black, or the monster in plain sight. Evil will very rarely expose itself to public light. It must hide. And it almost always hides under the guise of something righteous. In fact, rather than hiding in the shadows dressed in black, it disguises itself in suits, uniforms, and charitable organizations, which allow it to deceive us into thinking it’s our savior. This enables it to cause far greater damage. “While evil may manifest itself obviously … it rarely does so,” Dr. Peck proclaimed, and added, “those who are evil are masters of disguise.” Now let’s examine the track record of the people who control the planet. They have created wars for profit and control, which have resulted in the deaths of millions of people, for which they exhibit no remorse. They’ve allowed attacks to occur, created depressions, and overthrown governments to further their ambitions.
They have repeatedly lied about these events using the media, which they control, and academia, which they also control by their Tax-exempt Foundations. These wealthy people masquerade as the saviors of society. They disguise themselves using public front organizations, which appear to be humanitarian in nature. They’ve repeatedly not only lied about major historical events, but have deliberately created these catastrophes for their own benefit. Their own publications indicate that they plan to install a global dictatorship with them in complete control. These people are textbook psychopaths.(**) They are anti-human!
Compared to regular law-breaking criminals, these people appear to be OK, on the surface. But as we’ve learned, lies, deception, and disguise are standard traits of those who are evil. “[They] come from the very highest social strata,” wrote Allen. “They are immensely wealthy, highly educated and extremely cultured. Many of them have lifelong reputations for philanthropy. Nobody enjoys being put in the position of accusing prominent people of conspiring to enslave their fellow Americans, but the facts are inescapable.”
If you were to research the people throughout history that have committed atrocities against populations, you would probably find that most were psychopaths. Although mainstream history books do describe some of these events, they don’t emphasize the pattern which they were part of. This pattern consists of a steady stream of psychopaths lying, deceiving and murdering their way to the top, which then resulted in the atrocities. This re-occurring theme seems to be the norm.
Regarding this, Dr. Lobaczewski said, “We then usually reach the conclusion that the deed would not have taken place … since the pathological factor sealed its occurrence or became an indispensable component it its origin. The hypothesis thus suggests itself that such factors are commonly active in the genesis of evil.” He explained, “Within this interlocking structure, one kind of evil feeds and opens doors for others regardless of any individual or doctrinal motivations.” Finally, he suggests, “Since pathological factors are present within the syntheses of most instances of evil, they are also present in its continuum.” “Because their wilfulness is so extraordinary and always accompanied by a lust for power I suspect that the evil are more likely than most to politically aggrandize themselves,” described Dr. Peck. Dr. Sabbatini wrote, “Under stressing social situations such as in wars, general poverty and breakdown of the economy, sweeping epidemics or political fighting, etc., sociopath’s may acquire the status of regional or national leaders and saviors… When they are in positions of power, they can inflict far more damage than as individuals.”
A small portion of the population have a psychological makeup which is much different from most. They are completely aware of their difference. They also know that most people are not aware of this profound separation.
The difference includes an emotional deficiency, accompanied by a lack of remorse, which allows them to operate outside of standard moral boundaries. They are able to conceal this difference to some degree and usually appear to be generous and friendly. They consistently engage in antisocial behavior which includes destroying people’s lives, in order to feed their inflated egos.
During this process they frequently enjoy mocking their targets, which they see as weak, or are envious of. They will inflict pain upon others for no reason other than the enjoyment of doing so. They span all levels of society. Some authors consider them to be a different species of humans.
Psychopaths naturally gravitate toward positions of power. Many historical atrocities were caused by psychopaths. An organization or nation under a psychopathic influence will become saturated with its sickness. It will exhibit these destructive traits, from the upper levels, down to the smallest village.
The Hidden Evil is a psychopathic program which exists in a society controlled by psychopaths.
