With enough money, you can accomplish this from far away, and you can sit back safely and watch in satisfaction. [...]

...What distinguishes all of these people from the rest of us is an utterly empty hole in the psyche, where there should be the most evolved of all humanizing functions. [Martha Stout, Ph.D., The Sociopath Next Door]
