Sociopaths In Government

Reprinted from Newshog
November 26, 2005

REPUBLICANS exhibit many of the BEHAVIORIAL CHARACTISTICS OF A SOCIOPATH or SOCIALIZED PSYCHOPATH—such as an outstanding ability to charm and seduce followers. Since they appear apparently normal, they are not easily recognizable as deviant or disturbed. Although only a trained professional can make a DIAGNOSIS, it is important to be able to recognize the PERSONALITY TYPE in order to avoid further abuse.

Glibness/Superficial Charm
Language can be used without effort by them TO CONFUSE AND CONVINCE THEIR AUDIENCE. CAPTIVATING STORYTELLERS that exude self-confidence, they can SPIN A WEB that intrigues others. Since they are persuasive, they have the capacity to DESTROY THEIR CRITICS VERBALLY OR EMOTIONALLY.

Manipulative and Conning
They NEVER RECOGNIZE THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS and SEE THEIR SELF-SERVING BEHAVIORS PERMISSABLE. They appear to be charming, yet are COVERTLY HOSTILE AND DOMINEERING, SEEING THEIR VICTIMES AS MERELY AN INSTRUMENT TO BE USED. They DOMINATE AND HUMILIATE their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
FEELS ENTITLED TO CERTAIN THINGS AS “THEIR RIGHT”. CRAVES ADULATION AND AT&TENDANCE. Must be THE CENTER OF AT&TENTION WITH THEIR OWN FANTASIES AS “THE SPOKESMAN FOR GOD” “enlightened,” “leader of humankind,” etc. Creates an US-VS-THEM MENTALITY.

Pathological Lying
HAS NO PROBLEM LYING COOLY AND EASILY and IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO BE TRUTHFUL ON A CONSISTENT BASIS. CAN CREATE, AND GET CAUGHT UP IN, A COMPLEX BELIEF ABOUT THEIR OWN POWERS AND ABILITIES. EXTREMELY CONVINCING and able to pass LIE DETECTOR tests.

Shallow Emotions
When they show WARMTH, JOY, LOVE AND COMPASSION, it is MORE FEIGNED THAN BELIEVED and serves an ulterior motive. OUTRAGED BY INSIGNIFICANT MAT&TERS, yet REMAINING UNMOVED AND COLD BY WHATEVER WOULD UPSET A NORMAL PERSON. Since they are not genuine, NEITHER ARE THEIR PROMISES.

Incapacity for Love
WHILE THEY TALK ABOUT “GOD IS LOVE” they are unable to give or receive it. Since THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE GENUINESS OF THEIR FOLLOWERS’ LOVE, they are VERY HARSH IN TESTING IT FROM THEIR DEVOTEES and EXPECT THEM TO FEEL GUILT FOR THEIR FAILINGS. Expects unconditional surrender.

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge, yet TESTING THE BELIEFS OPF THEIR FOLLOWERS WITH BIZARRE RULES, PUNISHMENTS AND BEHAVIORS. VERBAL OUTBURSTS AND PHYSICAL PUNISHMENTS ARE NORMAL.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, HAVING ONLY CONTEMPT FOR OTHERS’ FEELINGS OF DISTRESS AND READILY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THEM. Their skills are used to EXPLOIT, ABUSE AND EXERT POWER. Since the follower cannot believe their leader would callously hurt them, THEY RATIONALIZE THE BEHAVIOR AS NECESSARY FOR THEIR (OR THE GROUP’S) OWN “GOOD” AND DENY THE ABUSE. WHEN THE DEVOTEE BECOMES AWARE OF THE EXPLOITATION IT FEELS LIKE A “SPIRITUAL RAPE” TO THEM.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
RAGE AND ABUSE, alternating with SMALL EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE AND APPROVAL produce an ADDICTIVE CYCLE FOR ABUSER AND ABUSED, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. BELIEVE THEY ALL-POWERFUL, ALL-KNOWING, ENTITLED TO EVERY WISH, NO SENSE OF PERSONAL BOUNDARIES, NO CONCERN FOR THEIR IMPACT ON OTHERS. The followers only SEE THEM AS NEAR PERFECT.

EARLY BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS/JUVENILE DELINQUENCY
Usually has a history of BEHAVIORAL AND ACADEMIC DIFFICULTIES, yet “GETS BY’ BY CONNING OTHERS. PROBLEMS IN MAKING AND KEEPING FRIENDS; aberrant behaviors such as CRUELTY TO PEOPLE AND ANIMALS, STEALING, etc.

Irresponsibility/Unreliability
NOT CONCERNED ABOUT WRECKING OTHERS’ LIVES AND DREAMS. OBLIVIOUS OR INDIFFERENT TO THE DEVASVATION THEY CAUSE. DOES NOT BLAME THEMSELVES, but BLAME THEIR FOLLOWERS or OTHERS OUTSIDE THEIR GROUP. BLAME REINFORCES PASSIVITY AND OBEDIENCE AND PRODUCES GUILT, SHAME TERROR AND CONFORMITY IN THE FOLLOWERS.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes ALL ENCOMPASSING PROMISES FOR THE FUTURE. MANY GROUPS CLAOM AS THEIR GOAL WORLD-DOMINATION OR OTHER UTOPIAN PROMISES. Great contrast between the LEADER’S OPULENT LIFESTYLE and THE FOLLOWERS’ IMPOVERSHMENT. SUPPORT BY GIFTS AND DONATIONS BY THE FOLLOWERS who are pressured to give through fear and guilt. HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO THEIR OWN PAIN AND HEALTH.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
CHANGES THEIR IMAGE AND THAT OF THE GROUP AS NEEDED to avoid prosecution and to increase income and to recruit a range of members. Is able to ADAPT OR RELOCATE AS NEEDED TO PRESERVE THE GROUP. CAN RESURFACE LATER WITH A NEW NAME, A NEW FRONT GROUP AND A NEW TWIST ON THE SCAM.

Other Related Qualities
Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Authoritarian
Secretive
Paranoid
Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
Conventional appearance
Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim’s life
Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim’s affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
Incapable of real human attachment to another
Unable to feel remorse or guilt
Extreme narcissism and grandiose
May state readily that their goal is to rule the world
