Learning More About Psychopaths



I was away doing some traveling.

My traveling will stop for a bit in August. I won’t be doing much of anything after that.

So, starting in September, I might learn more about psychopaths.

Why psychopaths? Here’s a quote from Sun-tzu’s The Art of War:

Know the enemy,
Know yourself,
And victory
Is never in doubt,
Not in a hundred battles. [1]

So psychopaths are the enemy? Well, for a lot of people they probably are, but, for me, they are the competition. Here’s a quote from Andrew M. Lobaczewski’s Political Ponerology:

In the psychopath, a dream emerges like some Utopia of a “happy” world and a social system which does not reject them or force them to submit to laws and customs whose meaning is incomprehensible to them. They dream of a world in which their simple and radical way of experiencing and perceiving reality would dominate; where they would, of course, be assured safety and prosperity. In this Utopian dream, they imagine that those “others”, different, but also more technically skillful than they are, should be put to work to achieve this goal for the psychopaths and others of their kin. “We”, they say, “after all, will create a new government, one of justice”. They are prepared to fight and to suffer for the sake of such a brave new world, and also, of course, to inflict suffering upon others. Such a vision justifies killing people, whose suffering does not move them to compassion because “they” are not quite conspecific. They do not realize that they will consequently meet with opposition which can last for generations. [2]

An example of a psychopath would be David Rockefeller. Here’s a quote from David Rockefeller’s own book, called Memoirs:

For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. [3]

[You can search for "Rockefeller" on the Foundations : Their Power and Influence by René A. Wormser post to get some more information.]

That’s it for now.

    Daniel –

    Your web site is one of the best things to ever happen to me after an all-night bender. I hereby concede this race to you, sir – you now have one less contender. The daily struggle I endure during my slow rise towards world domination will no longer be spent engineering mechanisms to allow for my mediocre hierarchical ascendancy into the class of classes, instead these efforts will be spent on something more noble. I will provide assistance to you in whatever way that I can – the only request I have is that you allow me control of 2nd order cybernetic systems for proper orientation of the trajectory when exploiting properly placed sociological boundary conditions. My methods for establishing social norms may be timeless classical constructs associated with a dying age, but my funkadelic vibe can bring down a house of columns. I mean commons. I’d also like to run the eugeni, I mean planned parenthood program if possible. Let’s roll.

    If you need a futuristic scientist and adviser to mind control and pacification of the masses please contact me. These days i´m loking for a job but i have great ideas for a post-cybernetic culture of material abundance and diversity, a Dionysian urban culture where all violece and agressive insticts would be sublimated into artistic activity and large massive celebrations of erotism and hapiness.
