PSYCHOPATHS – ALMOST HUMAN
The EXTRA-TERRESTIALS living among us.
The Hidden Evil is a psychopathic program which exists in a society controlled by psychopaths. The World Is Run By Real Psychopaths
As such a useful tool of exchange, money is not inherently evil. Money can be a springboard to such evil as bailout-begging banks too monstrous to fail gambling with taxpayer wealth—you know, private profits, public risk. Casino financialization with taxpayers as a backstop. The $700 billion TARP bailout actually being a $23.7 trillion bailout. But the root of all evil is the human brain.
New research has exposed, shall we say, the root of the problem. Pathocracy is its flower.

As hard as it is to fathom or accept, there are some among us seriously lacking in the qualities that make us the most human, especially empathy and conscience. And as a result of the aforementioned and a variety of other reasons, these individuals also tend to prey upon others without compunction or remorse. In fact, their lives are characterized by the repeated senseless and callous use and abuse of others. Over the years we’ve come up with almost as many labels for these disturbing personalities as we have unsatisfying explanations for their puzzling behavior. They are the predators among us, and the only known intra-species predators at that. These days, they’re most commonly referred to as psychopaths.
What exactly is a psychopath? Is a psychopath the same as a sociopath or persons with an antisocial personality disorder? Are psychopaths crazy? Are psychopaths born the way they are? Are psychopaths more common than we once thought? And how do you know if someone is a psychopath? Hopefully, this article will help answer these common questions…….
There is one topic that stands like the proverbial elephant in our collective living room, still unacknowledged, ignored or misunderstood by many people. It’s the underlying issue for our society and world’s problems. This is the topic of Psychopathy, especially Psychopaths in places of power and how it affects our world and society at large. More and more research and studies have been published that prove the existence of this intra-species predator, yet it still is being avoided and not sincerely studied and looked at by many well-meaning people who work actively trying to make this world a better place. They focus on the symptoms, but not the underlying causes.
“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.” ~John Lennon (1940-1980), English singer and songwriter

Psychopaths are drawn to and uniquely capable within politics. They are charismatic, show no remorse, crave power and rise to the top. Leading psychologists have built the literature on the corporate form, but statist psychopathy bears investigation.
Desire to rule is one thing, but the qualities that enable one to rise in the political hierarchy are perhaps rarer and more pernicious. Psychopaths are manipulative, charming, narcissistic and excellent liars. Most importantly, they score low on the empathy scale — showing little or no remorse for inflicting suffering (and readily violate the non-aggression principle). As children, many psychopaths torture animals and bully peers. They learn to mimic the normal outward display of emotionality, but it is purely an act.
It is easy to compromise your morals if you don’t have any. Being a politician means lying. The job description includes making back room deals and compromising on campaign promises. People often joke about politicians being heartless, deceitful, untrustworthy, self-aggrandizing and vindictive. But perhaps they must be to become politicians.
We all know some genuinely good people (perhaps a bit egotistical) who serve as state functionaries. Local politicians, even many Congresspeople appear genuinely motivated to do what they think is right (by force, naturally). But the lower eschelon of power is not where the psychopaths aggregate. Some leading psychologists hypothesize that the higher one looks up the hierarchy, the lower the empathy.
“The eyes of a psychopath will deceive you, they will destroy you. They will take from you, your innocence, your pride and eventually your soul. These eyes do not see what you and I can see. Behind these eyes, one finds only blackness, the absence of light. These are of a psychopath.” ― Dr. Samuel Loomis
Psychopaths dominate the halls of power in both the United States and throughout the world. The current economic, political, military and legal system breeds psychopaths, rewarding psychopathic behavior and punishing those with conscience and integrity. Psychopaths will naturally be drawn to and converge at the apex of the power pyramid as much from their own drive for ambitious power as the hierarchical system that both requires and reinforces those who can comfortably operate without conscience, guilt or any genuine level of empathy toward others.
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:………………
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.
“It must be remembered that even the most severely and obviously disabled psychopath presents a technical appearance of sanity, often with high intellectual capacities and not infrequently succeeds in business or professional activities for short periods, some for considerable periods .Although they occasionally appear on casual inspection as successful members of the community, as able lawyers, executive or physicians, they do not, it seems, succeed in the sense of finding satisfaction of fulfillment in their own accomplishments. Nor do they, when the full story is known, appear to find this in an ordinary activity.” –H.Cleckley, “The Mask of Sanity”
In the 19th century, psychopathology was considered to be “moral insanity”. But today, the definition has been broadened. It includes the “antisocial personality” or “sociopathology”. The proverbial “person next door” could be a psychopath. The politicians you look towards for leadership could be psychopaths. Your Pastor, Priest or Rabbi could be a psychopath. And, lastly, the charming companion you are dating, or married to, could be a psychopath. I do not mean to scare you, but closing one’s eyes will not make the situation go away.
“There are psychopathic personalities in the highest echelons of government, and even within religious hierarchies in America. You can t just assume that a person with the title judge or hospital orderly got there honestly and won t manipulate the hell out of you.” –Personal communication from Psychologist Schreibman to H. Cleckley, 2/10/86
One thread that runs true is the psychopath’s inability to feel compassion. They often possess a deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed. “They do not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. In their warped minds, the end always justifies the means. When they show what seems to be warmth, love or compassion, it is more feigned than experienced and usually serves an ulterior motive. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.” http://www.exitsupportnetwork.com/artcls/socio.htm
As I mentioned earlier, politics is a field that attracts psychopaths. I am sure that this comes as no shock to my readers. Is it their lust for power? Could be. Are many of them groomed to “cremate their consciences”? I’ve heard tell. One thing is for certain. We are living in perilous times and many people have lost faith in leaders who have been caught lying and cheating repeatedly. History is being rewritten and those who have “eyes to see” are aware that much of what we learned in school has been fiction…..
From Democracy to Pathocracy: The Rise of the Political Psychopath
“Politicians are more likely than people in the general population to be psychopaths/sociopaths. I think you would find no expert in the field of sociopathy/psychopathy/antisocial personality disorder who would dispute this… That a small minority of human beings literally have no conscience was and is a bitter pill for our society to swallow — but it does explain a great many things, shamelessly deceitful political behavior being one.”—Dr. Martha Stout, clinical psychologist and former instructor at Harvard Medical School
Twenty years ago, a newspaper headline asked the question: “What’s the difference between a politician and a psychopath?” The answer, then and now, remains the same: None. There is no difference between psychopaths and politicians.
Nor is there much of a difference between the havoc wreaked on innocent lives by uncaring, unfeeling, selfish, irresponsible, parasitic criminals and elected officials who lie to their constituents, trade political favors for……..
PONEROLOGY – THE STUDY OF EVIL
“In the author’s opinion, Ponerology reveals itself to be a new branch of science born out of historical need and the most recent accomplishments of medicine and psychology. In light of objective naturalistic language, it studies the causal components and processes of the genesis of evil, regardless of the latter’s social scope.
The ultimate cause of evil lies in the interaction of two human factors: 1) normal human ignorance and weakness and 2) the existence and action of a statistically small (4-8% of the general population) but extremely active group of psychologically deviant individuals. The ignorance of the existence of such psychological differences is the first criterion of ponerogenesis. That is, such ignorance creates an opening whereby such individuals can act undetected.
The presence of such “disease” on the individual level is described in the Almost Human section of this website. However, depending on the type of activity of psychopathic and characteropathic individuals, evil can manifest on any societal level. The greater the scope of the psychopath’s influence, the greater harm done. Thus any group of humans can be infected or “ponerized” by their influence. From families, clubs, churches, businesses, and corporations, to entire nations. The most extreme form of such macrosocial evil is called “pathocracy”.
Inherited and acquired psychological disorders and ignorance of their existence and nature are the primal causes of evil. The magic number of 6% seems to represent the number of humans who either carry the genes responsible for biological evil or who acquire such disorders in the course of their lifetime. This small percent is responsible for the vast majority of human misery and crime, and for infecting others with their flawed view of the world.
Living in a world whose morals and customs are meaningless to them and even seen as oppressive, psychopaths dream of a “happy” and “just” world where their depraved worldview is accepted as reality. They seek, by any means necessary, to achieve positions in government where their dreams can be brought to fruition. If injustice does exist in a society, their statements regarding the ‘unfairness’ of their situation can resonate with those who actually do experience such injustice. Thus, revolutionary doctrines can be accepted by both groups for diametrically opposed reasons.
PSYCHOPATHS AMONG US
Dr. Robert Hare claims there are 300,000 psychopaths in Canada, but that only a tiny fraction are violent offenders like Paul Bernardo and Clifford Olsen. Who are the rest? Take a look around
By Robert Hercz
I’m alone in my living room and I’m yelling at my TV. “Forget rehabilitation — that guy is a psychopath.”
Ever since I visited Dr. Robert Hare in Vancouver, I can see them, the psychopaths. It’s pretty easy, once you know how to look. I’m watching a documentary about an American prison trying to rehabilitate teen murderers. They’re using an emotionally intense kind of group therapy, and I can see, as plain as day, that one of the inmates is a psychopath. He tries, but he can’t muster a convincing breakdown, can’t fake any feeling for his dead victims. He’s learned the words, as Bob Hare would put it, but not the music….
This is a sequel to my September 28, 2015 article entitled “Are Humans Evil? If So, Why?” It covered the psychopathic type that Andrew Lobaczewski has written about. He says: you can find some men at the top of a nation who possess no conscience and who experience no remorse. Two of the psychopaths he named were Stalin and Hitler. But men in top office like that can’t perform all their evil stuff singlehanded. They need many helpers.
Ponerology: The Science of Evil blogspot
“Ponerology”: n. division of theology dealing with evil; theological doctrine of wickedness or evil; from the Greek: poneros -> evil’.
We are not proposing a “theological” study, but rather a scientific study of what we can plainly call Evil. The problem is, our materialist scientific culture does not readily admit that evil actually exists, per se. The lack of such a science has cost humanity millions of lives and untold suffering.
Successful psychopaths are those who evade detection by optimally conforming to social ideals without compromising their manipulative nature. They are skilled at faking emotions and passing themselves off as charming, caring, and sociable people. Some use their conformity to appear ordinary, others are more ambitious and become symbols of success by using their charm and intellect to rapidly climb the corporate, political, academic, religious, military, or social ladder.
Between 20% and 50% of the population is included in this category. In general, criminal psychopaths consistently violate laws and social norms while successful psychopaths make use of them.
The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School is offering a new course this fall: BUS 415: Concealing Your Psychopathic Identity: The Secret to Becoming a Master of the Universe by Adopting the Persona of an Empathic Individual. Intrigued by the title, I arranged an interview with Dr. Howard Roark, Dean of the Wharton School, and Prof. Maxine Moregreen, who is teaching the new course. What follows are the verbatim notes from our conversation.
Roark: This course title refers to the high percentage of our students who are clinical psychopaths. And I say that with a mixture of awe, envy and immense pride. Wharton’s MBA psychos eat the lunch of Stanford and Harvard B-School students.
Me: You’re not saying that Wharton is populating the world of high finance with serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, or, god forbid, people in the mold of Hannibal Lecter from “Silence of the Lambs,” are you?
Roark: (chuckling) No, no, nothing like that. Some 3-4 percent of the U.S. population can be classified as psychopaths, individuals totally incapable of feeling empathy or remorse and lacking any social conscience. These psychopaths in suits are found at the highest levels of government, business and the military. One of every ten people on Wall Street is probably a psychopath. Heck, I might be one but you’d never know it. (Roark displays an enigmatic grin.)
Political Ponerology, then, is the nature of evil in politics.
According to Lobaczewski, organizations can become infested with psychopathic personality types who, if given the proper amount of time and growing conditions, will busily fill all positions of power within it.
In the case of governments, what emerges is defined as a pathocracy: tyranny at the hand of psychopaths. Lobaczewski defined governance by a pathocracy as a macrosocial disease, something unhealthy and brutally deadly if untreated.
A former elite international banker-turned-whistleblower has come out to give humanity a super dose of reality about how the world is run and how we can beat it.
Bernard then goes on to make a powerful yet ominous statement.
“All misery on earth is a business model.”
When we look at the suffering of other human beings across the planet, we can link this back to a predatory state or elite entity immune from the rule of law through special privilege obtained through the state.
Most importantly, as Bernard points out, none of this will change as long as people are unaware of how it works.
“As long as people don’t realize how it works: How they’re deceived… How their being robbed…How the value, their value, is taken away from them to enrich the rich even further… as long as the people don’t see this, as long as they are not aware, nothing will change.”
Even when people do become aware of the banking elite and their ability to rule from outside the law, they believe they can change it by acting within that system. This deception is maintained by instilling the illusion of democracy….
To quote Butler Shaffer from his eye-opening book, The Wizards of Ozymandias:
“We will not become free when the state goes away. Rather the state will go away once we are free.”
