I think what some are missing is the fact that a genetic sociopath is discernable through mri and brainwave testing.
Genetic sociopathy is not a choice, nor subject to treatment. If you are a genetic sociopath, your amygdala isn't the same shape or structure that a
non-sociopath's amygdala is, and doesn't function the same way.
That said, it doesn't necessarily mean you will harm society in general, merely your own family and circle of associates. That part doesn't require
intervention and prevention by the state unless and until it reaches criminal levels. However, it isn't too much to ask that those seeking societally
sensitive positions of power be cleared of being a socipath.
Sounds to me like some here are arguing for the right of uncaring predators like Bernie Madoff to be allowed to prey upon the unsuspecting, and folks
Like Qaddafi, Idi Amin and other sociopathic despots have a right to seek and hold positions of national and international leadership.
Sociopaths are extremely dangerous: in some ways they are the archetypal vampire race that preys upon normal humanity; similar to, but not quite
In the event of being miscategorized, the only harm I see is that you wouldn't be able to hold power positions. No big deal if you aren't a sociopath,
and it is easily proven wrong by actual behavior over time. If you think you were unfairly categorized despite the physical evidence, all you have to
do is prove you actually care about others for an extended period. That's something a true sociopath would be unable to do for very long.
