Is There No Shame?

Is There No Shame?

Jim Quinn for The Burning Platform

[…] This is an institutional cancer that eats away at the fabric of our society. It is not isolated to Penn State. It is a societal sickness that threatens to overwhelm every facet of our lives. There is a constant thread that runs through every incident that comes to light. In 99% of the cases it is men protecting men. Money and greed always trump morality and truth. The exact circumstances can be observed in the priest abuse scandal that has rocked the Catholic Church in the last five years. Pedophile priests have existed within the Catholic Church for decades. The Penn State situation shows that pedophiles exist everywhere in our society. The bottom line is that they are sick men and need to be locked up and kept away from little boys. […]

Wall Street bankers exhibit the epitome of psychopathic behavior, showing lack of empathy and remorse, shallow emotions, egocentricity, and deceptiveness. Psychopaths are highly prone to antisocial behavior and abusive treatment of others. Though lacking empathy and emotional depth, they often manage to pass themselves off as average individuals by feigning emotions. These Wall Street bankers will never willingly accept responsibility for their actions. They continue to use their wealth and power to control the politicians in Washington DC and the misinformation propagated by the corporate media they control. They own and control the Federal Reserve and will print money until the whole system collapses in a spectacular implosion that destroys our financial system. They only care about their own wealth, influence and status. They have no shame. [...]

Hmm, this is interesting. I also write about this disorder (psychopathy) and I used to think that regular people like us were merely naive and gullible; well, for the most part we are I suppose. But in truth, if you think about these topics further, and think about the outrage that these "people" (i.e. psychopaths) still roam free after hurting so many, the only thing I can conclude, along with the opinions I've garnered from some very smart people whom I respect, is that most people, that is, "us", we're not really that concerned. Some of us are, no doubt, but think about the general population. I heard someone say once that most people remind him of giant apes. They only care about eating, sleeping, and having a person around for sex. If that's the general mentality of most human beings, which I think is true to a great extent, then it's no wonder that psychopaths continue to flourish. People are really dumb in general and animalistic. Is is any wonder they can be controlled so easily by psychopaths? It's no surprise or shock to me any longer, after having studied and written about this disorder for many, many years. The general population in their own manner are just as selfish as psychopaths and add in the stupid factor, and there you go, it all makes perfect sense now to me why psychopaths thrive among us.

An excellent article. The reality of life on earth may well be that we are bound to a history and a social interaction requiring a certain class of individuals who engage in what we currently identify as psychopathic behavior. This may also be the natural order, and the diagnosis is then rendered as name-calling because an alpha class oppresses all lesser orders of the species. Which is truth is perhaps anyone's guess. In the end, a free people must throw down their oppressors and build a society targeted upon something other than the aggrandizement of mad men.
