It's OK for the reason that we are those very same sociopaths we seem to love and need controlling us, again, all under the guise of freedom.
I've made a lot of assumption there, but ask yourself if they hold water, and I think they do.
Happy New Year.

You have made huge assumptions. Quite far reaching ones.
I've studied sociopathology in some detail since I lost nearly a decade of my life in a relationship with one that nearly resulted in my death. Based
on personal experience, and having had my life destroyed by a psychopath, I felt at the very least I needed to learn as much as I could about the
Statistically, 1 in 20 people are psychopaths. They are numerous, but you are incorrect to assume we are all, or the majority, psychopathic.
For example, in my last job, I was able to identify the 3 psychopaths in a company of around 65 individuals. Each one of them was different from the
other, but because I had the knowledge I was able to pinpoint who was, and who wasn't. What disturbed me the most was the ignorance of those around
me. What bothered me was how easily I noticed colleagues being manipulated, by two female psychopaths in particular. And to add to the problem, both
these women quickly identified each other and started working together to undermine.
You assume people 'love' psychopaths. And you are somewhat right, particularly when it involves a personality cult - like Hitler.
People are weak. Look at my link to the Stamford Prison Experiment. Because psychopaths are perceived as being strong or charismatic, they are often
elevated to positions of power by the weak - why Bush II and Bliar were able to secure second terms. Actually, psychopaths are the weakest of all as
their personalities are fundamentally flawed and in their own eyes, can do no wrong. Look at the video evidence of Bliar trying to justify taking the
United Kingdom to war on three seperate occasions.
As I said before, the only way to protect modern civilisation from psychopaths is to root them out, weed them out, expose and uncover them. Until we
do that, our future as a civilisation is shaky at best. Beware, and be aware, of the wolf in the sheeps clothing, for he will terrorise and destroy
the herd, if given the oppportunity...
