Pando, and Scooter Libby’s private message in public to Judith Miller

pando

This is Pando, in Utah.  Seemingly a grove of multiple quaking aspens, in actuality it is one organism, a massive root system that sends up trees to harvest sunlight.  But one could say that these trees are connected at the roots.  In the fall the leaves turn color simultaneously, the root system giving all the trees/leaves the same biochemistry.

Scooter Libby to Judith Miller (Sept. 15, 2005):  “You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now.  . . .  Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them.  . . .” (http://www.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/national/nat_MILLER_051001.pdf).

Could Scooter Libby be saying to Judith Miller, “Remember, psychopaths are all connected.  Connected at the roots.  Stand by me.”?  Could be.

In “Confessions of a Sociopath,” Thomas self-identifies “more as a sociopath than by my gender or profession or race.” Confessions of a Sociopath — A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight

This makes sense with everything I know.  Psychopaths always side with co-psychopaths versus the empath world.  In court, psychopathic attorneys, judges, prosecutors will almost always side (in act, though not by claim) with the psychopathic party, breaking the law to do so.  In school psychopathic teaches will always protect psychopathic students.  Psychopathic bosses will rarely, and only if pushed, fire a psychopathic employee.  A psychopathic parent will always favor the psychopathic offspring over the non-psychopathic.

What’s up with the mixed messages? “Five Reasons To Be Concerned Your Husband Is A Psychopath “

Five Reasons To Be Concerned Your Husband Is A Psychopath

It dawned on me a few years ago that our rational lives are like a still pond and madness is the jagged rock thrown into it, creating odd ripples everywhere. And the most powerful madness of all, when it comes to the way the world turns, is psychopathy.

There’s a consensus amongst psychologists that psychopaths — with all their glib charm and grandiosity and the power to effortlessly manipulate — do brilliantly in business and politics.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jon-ronson/five-reasons-to-be-concer_1_b_861092.html

The author, Jon Ronson, goes on to list five traits as possible signs of psychopathy:

1. He was very gallant when you first met him, not so gallant now
2. He’s grandiose
3. He Had Early Behavioral Problems
4. He Engages In Promiscuous Sexual Behavior
, and finally
5. He Spends too Much Time Learning How To Spot Psychopaths By Using the Hare Checklist

Why is number five there?  This suspicion is extremely damaging.  It actually leads to self-censorship by non-psychopaths.  Friends and acquaintances think my ‘fascination with psychopaths’ is very odd.  That makes no sense to me.  They are out there and you need to understand them.

The status quo (thankfully now changing) is similar (as I’ve written elsewhere) to there being a dangerous fish in all the waters of the world that is never mentioned.  That is insane and a failure of each generation to the following generations.

I believe the author’s point five encourages the public to hide their heads in the sand and works at cross purposes with his other points.  Why?
