“Meet the new boss – same as the old boss.”—The Who “Won’t Get Fooled Again”
I have often seen and heard the more deplorable actions and attitudes of the radical Left described as being the necessary means to a utopian end—as if that somehow gives moral cover for being a lying, cheating, greedy, backstabbing traitor, and acts as a sort of carte blanche excuse for the morally challenged, spiritually stunted, and sociopathically twisted.
I bring this up because it seems to me that our government and culture has become a haven for sociopaths – we harbor and cultivate sociopaths, even honor them. You needn’t be on the Left side of the political spectrum, lying your way to utopia – unfortunately the Right side of the political spectrum also has its share of entrenched sociopaths.
What are some of the common traits of a sociopath? They are extremely adept at lying; they are callous, but very charming when it serves their ends; the end always justifies the means for them; they have no conscience, and lack the ability to feel shame, remorse, or guilt.
Sociopaths should not be confused with psychopaths, who tend to be much more “in your face” with their sickness, nor are they simply narcissists – who although self-centered in the extreme, generally have at least a rudimentary conscience.
I look around at our judges and courts, at the mass-media propaganda venues, at the banksters and corporate CEOs, at NGO elites and even religious leaders – I look at our culture as a whole and the state of our federal government – and I see the occasional borderline psychopath, a bevy of sociopaths, and legions of narcissists. I see a sewer of arrogance, greed, lies, and corruption.
I figure that it is past time that “we the people” did something about it. All we ask of the “low information voters” is to get out of the way and do nothing. They are accomplished at doing that, so it should not be much of a stretch for them. Laus Deo.
