I have posted before about the fact that psychopaths seem to have an easier time in modern America winning elections, as well as doing better in at
least establishing relationships. Many reply that this is unfair but it is how life works.
The thing is that psychopaths possess a lot of positive traits we can learn from and employ to win -- without actually becoming psychopaths, as if
that was possible for someone without the genetic predisposition.
Psychopaths are hyper-individualistic. They just don't care what people think of them. So they will say and do things that seem odd, but actually are
calculating to win an objective, whether to gain popularity, attention of the opposite (or same) sex or establish themselves as "different" so they
can make the "sale." Psychopaths are also charming, able to make a person feel special and, due to their hatred of the conventional they can take
people on a thrill ride of the mind and body.
There is no reason regular people can't learn from them. I post this in hopes the more informed and aware people generally found on this forum can
use these traits to win in the battle against a society getting dumber, less free and more conformistic.

I for one believe individualism is the one thing humankind should steer as far away as possible from, but in my observation the exact opposite is
what's happening. If we go down that path, it means people will have their way no matter the outcome for others. Utimately this is exactly what
happens when one steals, rapes or kills. So not a behavior I think should be encouraged, not more encouraged than it already is. Disagree? "Demanding
respect" and "standing out" are openly encoureged in our society while at the same time being the admission ticket to that road, and the extreme
examples I've given are at its end. Last but not least, it's only logical: if extreme individualism becomes the norm, remember that you are only
one, and you will have to interact with many others who will all try to get something out of you for their benefit. It's a no-win game if you ask me.
