Politicians and Serial Killers

...cut from the same cloth.

Psychopathy is a personality disorder manifested in people who use a mixture of charm, manipulation, intimidation, and occasionally violence to control others, in order to satisfy their own selfish needs.

Interpersonal traits include glibness, superficial charm, a grandiose sense of self-worth, pathological lying, and the manipulation of others. The affective traits include a lack of remorse and/or guilt, shallow affect, a lack of empathy, and failure to accept responsibility.

Serial killers and politicians share traits

From the link directly above is this statement: Ironically, these same traits exist in men and women who are drawn to high-profile and powerful positions in society including political officeholders.

Come on, deep down you've always known our rulers are psychopaths. Just one more good reason to become an anarchist and stand in opposition to hierarchies!

  2. I remember during the campaign last year that McCain said he liked "Dexter." But can ya blame him?
