“If we can’t spot psychopaths, we are doomed to be their victims..”-Dr. Hare
DEFINITION of psychopath: A person with a neurologically impaired (lack of) conscience. Designation of someone as a “psychopath” is not meant to be an insult. Psychopathy is a limitation that prevents a person from feeling empathy or having remorse.
Psychopaths are estimated to be 4 percent of population. This means that there are 12 million psychopaths in the United States. Psychopaths like to control and manipulate (covertly) and are drawn to positions of power. How many are politicians?
Psychopaths in government are responsible for the genocidal policies that allow corporations to wreak havoc on society, as well as the laws that blatantly disregard the Constitution. Psychopaths (aka sociopaths) are impaired neurologically, and like drug users, are not fit for positions of leadership.
Psychopaths need to be identified because their void of conscience means they can NEVER be trusted. No matter how civilized, or prosocial a psychopath appears to be, they are neurologically unlimited in their capacity to destroy people emotionally, harm the environment, and create worldwide havoc – without any care at all. Most psychopaths are not obvious, and are not overtly violent. Without a conscience, there is no limit to the material and emotional damage they are capable of doing, in addition to the violence that some exhibit.
A society in the hands of psychopaths brings misery to the citizens and harm to the environment.
A Psychopathic Society / Police State criminalizes everything good (feeding the homeless), and legalizes everything bad (Citizens United and Patriot Act).
Let’s Stop Voting for Psychopaths! …But, How?? TEST Politicians.
We need to make MRI brain scans a mandatory part of the background check for political candidates and policymakers.
“We would not allow a color-blind person to safely work, for example, as an air-traffic controller… society shouldn’t let a clinically-diagnosed psychopath be in a position of power (..don’t give the pyromaniac the matches or put a pedophile in charge of the day-care center).” –Jose Gude
Psychopaths have full intellectual faculties and have no break with reality. (Movies, TV, and mass media give people the wrong idea that psychopaths can be spotted because they’re obviously deranged. Wrong! Psychopaths are not psychotic.) They are false friends, pathological liars, and clever con artists who take advantage of the fact that we are not taught to identify them among us. Most people never realize that there is an uncurable predatory and parasitic presence in their lives.[https://occupycorporatism.com/]
Psychopathic lawmakers are contrary and self-serving.
Their focus on power and greed takes precedence over the well-being of the people. They are secretive, deceitful, and corrupt beyond what most people are capable. (An example of corruption of the Congress – blatant contradiction between title of the H.R. 30: Save American Workers Act of 2015 and its real intent to advance corporate corruption : http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/114/hr30 Passed 252/172)
Recognize your psychopathic candidates. You don’t need to study psychology. A new psychopathy checklist, based on dysfunctional habits, is available:

Site Admin: Tina Taylor aka GeneticPsycho – Helping everyday people identify a psychopath as easily as we recognize a person who is drug impaired. I am not a psychopath, but my family members are (from a long line of psychopaths.)
I shockingly discovered that I was married to a psychopath for over 15 years. It doesn’t mean he’s violent. It means he has no conscience, nor empathy, but he fakes it better than normal people show true feelings. Psychopathy means he has no love, no loyalty, no decency. Betrayal on a whim. No remorse. Totally self-serving. Wears the disguise of the sweetest guy on earth and no one knows the darkness of his heart.
