When I think of psychopaths, I think of people who are capable of murder without any thought. They can wipe out humans the way people wipe out bugs. But again, there is the problem with the ban…
Antisocial Personality Disorder. That’s where you get the no empathy, no regard for others, no guilt. It’s a spectrum, so you’ll get murderers who are psychopaths (Ted bundy /jim jones) and you’ll get murderers who are sociopaths (most school shooters). One is able to wear a very magnetic social persona, and hide the pathological behaviors somewhat, the other is a loner, not able to form attachments, real or contrived. OMG I love this subject. i could go on all day.
So, anyway, not everyone with APD is a murderer. it gets channeled in various ways. Business is a biggie…i’d slap Trump down under psychopath/business. I don’t know about Duterte. But an approval rating of 80% would not surprise me. It’s easy to lose ones humanity as part of a whole, when the alternative is to accept that a madman is in charge and calling basically for people to be gunned down in the street. Wouldn’t take much of a leap to “he’s cleaning up the place like we’ve always wanted someone to do. Worthless addicts.” I don’t know. I see similar things coming here in the states. :(
