Well for one, I would say EGO, EGO is the driving force behind just about anything. Not to say these people have control and they just want to fulfil
a fantasy to feel better, but that is why they do it.
Whatever it was that happened to them that turned them into the killer that they are. The continued feeling of what the after affects are is what
drives them to do these things. Not the actions themselves. Now if it is repeated actions over and over you just further risk the chance of becoming
I wouldn't say these people are hopeless and can't be taught where to draw the line, but I feel that they never had that ability. Imagine you're a
child being abused(as many are), what are you thinking when you're being hit? "Stop" yet as hard as you wish for that to happen, it won't until
the person doing it decides to stop. Now wheter or not this person hurting you is happy after they stop isn't important, but some very well may
be(People with Bipolar Disorder for example) that person who was just a before hurting you and was angry/sad/etc is now acting different, arguably
good in comparison.
If you're a child and that is how you come up in the world, you're not going to look at things as having a line you shouldn't cross, you are going
to look at those things as a solution.
Now I'm aware this only applies to some cases, but I still feel EGO is the key behind them all in the end. Even the ones driven by greed, ultimately
greed is driven by your EGO. The rare cases of people at a young age, I'm not sure on those. I think they probably witnessed something as well as
Remember to, some people are just unstable, we may all have the same brain but they don't all work the same way due to all sorts of reasons. I saw
someone mention they had a neighbor who killed a homeless man, Thats a perfect example of this. Some people may be able to get over those feelings, or
at least to the point of having more control.
This is why I feel people shouldn't be surprised, when someone goes "Oh I never thought they would kill" we don't really know anything about each
other. How many people that you know in real life know some of your darkest secrets? If you snapped one day because of them would anyone be there to
say "You guys should know..." to explain things? I doubt that to be the case for a lot of people. You know why? EGO, we don't want to disclose that
type of information.
For all you know the kid you went to school with who killed someone down the line, could have been raped way back in the day, perhaps even after
leaving your home one night. You would never know, a lot of people would probably never tell you.
So what do I think drives people to kill? Life does. Which is quite a shame.
