Whoa, I completely missed this post! I would love to have that February 25, 2012 Coast to Coast radio show posted here, but it appears it is no longer available free on the Internet. Now you have to pay to learn about psychopaths! That's what happens when psychopaths rule the world, dontcha know. The archived show is here, but you have to be a paid subscriber to listen or to download the MP3 files.

I did find Jonathan Zap's Foxes and Reptiles: Psychopathy and the Financial Meltdown article while searching for the interview. That will probably give us some useful material to work with.

Sociopaths are driven by the pursuit of power and control over others.

So just how powerful are the ruling sociopaths? They control the money system, which means they control anything that money can buy. Anything. That includes people, companies, industries, the global system of mass media, militaries, and governments. Maybe the real question is what don't they control...

The ruling sociopaths have so much power, they can get away with mass murder. They did 9/11, killing thousands in a matter of hours. They did the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, killing hundreds of thousands over the course of those conflicts, which have never really ended.

War has become an economic enterprise. It is a for-profit business aimed at murder and destruction. In this guise, it is an absolute abomination.

War Is a Racket. General Smedley Butler wrote that short little book. Recognizing that war is all about the money, the solution to war might also be economic.

The ruling sociopaths are also suspected to have caused the nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima, which will produce untold misery and death for unknown numbers of living things for who knows how long.

To demonstrate how untouchable the ruling degenerates have become, let's go back 85 years and look at how untouchable they were then. At that time, the very same Smedley Butler was asked to lead a violent military overthrow of the United States government. He pretended to go along with it, and then exposed the whole plot.

And the result for the criminal plotters?

There were absolutely no consequences for the guilty, not even public exposure. Justice was undermined, because the ruling degenerates control that, too.

Who knew that at the top-most levels of government and leadership in the United States, and in the world, sociopaths would completely dominate?

Do you realize the implications of this? Evil originates in the minds of sociopaths / psychopaths. These are the very people "leading" us. "Leading" is not the right word, as they actually are deceiving and manipulating us while giving us the illusory impression of being caring and responsible leaders.

This is true evil.

Post Re: Sociopaths -- who knew?
Here is a great round-table discussion about sociopaths / psychopaths from Vinny Eastwood, Jay Weidner, Thomas Sheridan, and James Corbett.

There are lots of good points bandied about here. One is that the word "archons" (literal meaning is "rulers") of the gnostic philosophy was just another word for sociopaths / psychopaths. I particularly liked the comments about how sociopaths turn any subject around to focus things back on themselves. Zook provided so many examples of this whenever his reasoning was challenged that it was almost comical.

One comment I would strongly disagree with is Sheridan's claim that a sociopath on a deserted island with sufficient food would succumb in a few days without people around to "feed" off of. While it is true that the sociopath would not thrive under isolated conditions, he would easily survive. It's a faux pas like this from Sheridan that leaves me wondering if he is a sociopath acting as an authority on sociopaths.

Last January, Israeli news commentator and former politician Yossi Sarid published an article entitled, “This Israeli Politician is a Psychopath. Guess Who.” This is basically an easy question. -- source

Hey, where's the surprise? Nixon was one. LBJ was too. And George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Boy George Bush, and even Obama. Kissinger is a sociopath, as is Brzezinski. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Hillary, Rahm Emanuel, Madeleine Albright, Paul Wolfowitz, and on and on! Tony Blair is a sociopath, and he moved in lockstep with George Bush. So if Benjamin Netanyahu is a sociopath, and the U.S. Congress moves in lockstep with Netanyahu, you can begin to see what a cozy club it is at the top. Non-sociopaths are not welcome and will be removed by hook or by crook. Only sociopaths need apply.

And do they ever!

Hawaii is a classic example of what happens when people led by sociopaths encounter people led by empaths.

Are there killer cultures?

Some readers will be outraged by my presumption. How dare I regard any group as barbaric. What appalling ethnocentrism! There are no barbarians. There are simply cultures we haven't taken the time to understand. Cultures to whom we haven't given sufficient aid. Cultures in need of development. Beneath the skin, all men and women are the same. They have the same needs, the same emotions, and the same ideals. If you simply took those folks you speak of so contemptuously out for a cup of coffee, you would discover that they are just like you and me.

But there are barbarians -- people whose cultures glorify the act of murder and elevate violence to a holy deed. These cultures portray the extinction of other human beings as a validation of manliness, a heroic gesture in the name of truth, or simply a good way to get ahead in the world. -- The Lucifer Principle (page 223-224)

Barbarians is the wrong word. There are sociopaths. Organizations of sociopaths portray the extinction of other human beings as a validation of their superiority, a heroic gesture in the name of "winning the game", or simply a good way to climb the hierarchy of the "ruling elite".

You see, beneath the skin, all men and women are not the same. They do not have the same needs, the same emotions, and the same ideals. Some have a very deviant and dangerous psychology that makes them... what is the proper word... barbarians, or psychopaths, or... evil.

Quote:
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. -- Matthew 7:15-20, The Bible, New King James Version

You will indeed know them by their fruits. The identifying set of traits found in sociopaths are:

• Lack of empathy – Inability to feel sympathy for others or to understand the emotional consequences their actions have on others. Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims. Sociopaths often feel contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily take advantage of them.

• Superficial charm – While the sociopath is unable to fully understand the emotions of others, they are highly adept at mimicking emotions and might appear to be charming and normal at first.

• High IQ – Often sociopaths will exhibit a high IQ which they can use to plan, conspire, manipulate, and deceive more effectively.

• Secretive – Sociopaths learn early to hide their true nature from others, who naturally find the true traits of sociopaths odious and repugnant. Sociopaths hide the true motivations of their actions from others as well. They operate behind a facade of normality to better deceive and manipulate normal people.

• Compulsive lying – As part of their facade, and as a quicker and easier means of achieving their goals, sociopaths are compulsive liars. They rarely speak truthfully. They are the ultimate deceivers and con-artists. Some degree of plausible deniability is often built into their lies. They are extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests, making them very hard to pin down.

• Manipulative – Sociopaths use their superficial charm, deception, and high IQ to manipulate others to achieve their selfish goals, and their lack of empathy allows them to do this with no sense of guilt, shame, or remorse. They don't recognize the rights of others and see their victims as merely instruments to be used.

• Cold, calculating nature – The ability and willingness to manipulate others around them for personal gain without caring how others are affected. The ends always justify the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

• Grandiose self image – Sociopaths usually see themselves as superior to others, often to the point of delusion. They believe themselves to be the fittest leaders of a group, business, government, or even the whole world. Sociopaths see their self-serving behaviors as not only permissible, but entirely appropriate.

• Narcissism – A personality disorder in itself in which the individual feels strong love and admiration toward themselves.

• Sensitive to criticism – Like all narcissists, the sociopath will desire the approval of others and will be highly sensitive to criticisms. They often feel they truly deserve the adulation and admiration of the world. When criticized, they often feel victimized and react with "tit-for-tat" attacks on their detractors.

• Shallow emotions – Sociopaths are cold and unmoved by what would upset a normal person. They lack genuine emotion whenever empathetic feelings would be normal, yet are outraged by insignificant matters of a selfish nature. Their capacity to feel real affection and love is very limited. Rather than feeling loving affection towards friends and family, sociopaths feel ownership. They see others as targets and pawns.

• Low tolerance for boredom – Sociopaths get bored quickly and thus tend to seek constant stimulation. Life becomes nothing but a massive game for them, with the desire of winning each new play driving them forward. Outbursts and physical punishments directed at others can occur unexpectedly. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

• Impulsive behavior – A lack of regret and empathy means that sociopaths are more likely to make sudden or rash decisions based on the limited information at hand. They can be careless risk-takers, especially when the risk is borne by others. This impulsiveness can be useful for manipulating victims. Sociopaths often alternate rage and abuse with small expressions of feigned love and approval, creating an addictive cycle in the victim of feeling hopeful and useful versus feeling despair and unworthiness.

• Irresponsible – Unconcerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Sociopaths do not accept blame themselves, but blame others, even for acts they obviously committed.

• Sexually deviant – The lack of empathy, responsibility, remorse, guilt, and emotional attachment means that the sociopath is happy to have affairs and engage in unhealthy sexual activity without worrying about the damage to others. Secrecy is important here. Sexual activity is not seen as a way to connect emotionally with another, but as a way to exercise power and control over another and confirm the sociopath's own narcissism and self-grandiose delusions. Child sexual abuse and rape are not uncommon behaviors.

• Despotic/Authoritarian – Often sociopaths see themselves as the necessary authority and will be very much in favor of totalitarian rule, especially when it benefits them.

• Playing the rules – Despite popular belief, a sociopath is not likely to be an obvious law-breaker, but rather will seek to find legal loopholes or work-arounds, or rise to a position of power where he makes the laws, or the sociopath will move to another environment where his behavior is legally sanctioned or better tolerated.

• Parasitic Lifestyle – Tends to move around a lot in search of new victims. Poor work ethic but exploits others effectively, shamelessly feeding off the accomplishments of others.

• Paranoid – Sociopaths feel constantly threatened by:

  1. their tiny proportion among the human population (less than 2%).
  2. their lack of understanding of normal human emotional response.
  3. the natural revulsion normal humans have towards visible sociopathic behavior.
  4. the possibility of their true nature being exposed.

As a result of this paranoia, sociopaths often rely on blackmail as a fail-safe tactic should the usual tactics of charm, deception, and manipulation fail.

• Problematic childhood – Sociopaths will often demonstrate behavioral anomalies at a young age. These include problems making and keeping friends, animal cruelty (pulling body parts off insects, abusing pets, etc.), stealing, psychological bullying, vandalism, and pyromania (an obsession with setting fires).
