Psychopaths In Charge

...from an unreliable main stream source ... but hey... =)

CBS NEWS :: Psychopaths In Charge...

...and, in my opinion, ALL LEVELS Gov't including the top!

There needs to psychological evaluation at all levels.

We have to take pee tests to get a job. (Some gov't benefits as well require some testing?)

Definitely, if you want law enforcement, military position.

Gov't needs some stringent psych testing and publicizing the results.

that would surely clean out DC, wouldn't it.

Of course psychopaths are in charge. Just look at the world.

Remember to be a psycho, doesn't mean you're any less intelligent.

I think we'll see more of this coming out soon
Perhaps this is a sign of the times, the sign of awakening, people are getting mad that they've been manipulated this whole time.
Its gunna be a fun year.

They sure run the show, and we live in a pathocracy (A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people). We are more individualistic, selfish, unforgiving and sympathetic than ever before. You see, they turn society into their values. But it is not to late, the 'psychopathy card' can potentially be quite the Pandora's box once enough people care to look inside!

Check out this very important and good documentary;

Explanation for this is simple:

Our society overwhelmingly REWARDS sociopathic/psychopathic behavior.
Especially in the business/political/entertainment worlds.

End of story.

indeed to paraphrase Nietzsche: "there is a disease upon this earth"


Within human social and economic systems, pathogenic behavior is spreading. This is particularly true among powerful, successful, and wealthy people (finance, economics, politics, etc.) in the developed world. What specifically do I mean by pathogenic? An ever greater number of these people are adopting behaviors that are actively hostile to the human systems we rely upon. They actually think it is OK to put these systems at risk for personal benefit. Obviously, this is very dangerous. Given the massive amounts of network, technological, and financial leverage that's currently available to these people, even a single bad actor can wreak global havoc like never before (as in, they could cause an economic collapse that's so severe that it could kill more people than every war we've ever had to date, combined). So, why is this happening and how can we prevent it? This has been a tough section of the book I'm currently writing. Fortunately, I think I'm starting to unravel it. Here we go. In order to understand why some bad actors are willing to do grievous harm to the complex systems they rely upon, we need to visit the cutting edge of microbiology. Let's start that exploration with a look at an amazing article by Brett Finlay in the Scientific American called, "Stopping Infections: The Art of Bacteriological Warfare."
of all the tens of thousands of known bacterial species,only about 100 are renegades that break the rules of peaceful coexistence and make us sick.

It should be pretty easy to see the parallels between human society and the bacteriological ecosystem described here. So, let's press forward with something more interesting: new insight into bacteriological warfare.

I believe it. In fact, I think companies work to bring the "psycho" out of people, because they are psycho themselves, they want to bred this in people in the positions the corporate suits used to hold.

Some companies are positive psychopath magnets, and go out of their way to recruit managers who have psychopathic tendencies. They are viewed as decisive, hard edged, proactive managers. The reality is generally that they are insensitive bullies who stomp and scream and shout until they get their own way.

I worked for a company in the UK, a low end credit retail company, that went out of its way to hire psychopathic managers. I was in a meeting when managers were laughing about the number of suicides in the company that year and how they were down on their average. I witnessed and suffered from extreme bullying, ACAS has a list of 30 indicators you are being bullied on their website, I met 28 of them. When I complained to HR about the bullying my email was intercepted and I was formally charged with a massive list of grievances and removed. During the disciplinary process they denied I'd ever sent the email, and all the evidence I'd gathered and foolishly left on my desk and PC had strangely vanished. In the end I was dismissed, and it took me a couple of years to recover from the shock.

You might think I was an isolated incident, in one department, in 18 months over 10 people were subjected to similar, or worse treatment. I the previous 20 years of my career I had only ever witnessed one person being dismissed or treated similarly, and in the subsequent 7 years I have only seen one other company, one of the larger internet security companies, behave in a similar vein. Interestingly both companies have similar management structures and methods and incredible staff turnover rates.

If you find yourself on the receiving end of psychopathic management remember that the problem isn't yours, and that no amount of common sense, natural justice, or being in the right is going to change a thing. Get help from a Union, or other support group, record everything and make a right fuss and be as psychopathic back as the treatment you receive. Don't make my mistake and start to think it's you, it isn't! Don't hang on thinking it will change, it won't. Look after yourself and get out of there!

I applied at Wells Fargo call center but when the HR interviewer asked if I was interested in going

straight to 'Collections ' dept. where it takes a 'special' type of asshole... I told her that I wasn't

interested and would prefer regular banking CSR. She looked over my application again and stated

"You know that you signed this application and that it's a legally binding document"

paraphrasing the rest: "and that any mis-statement and I could be charged with fraud"

So, I promptly excused myself for another appt. and left in disgust and I made sure that she knew it.

Paraphrasing you Rob37n: Know yourself, know your limitations.

Very astute of them to mention...finally, MSM recognizes this just now? No, they were hiding it, they are it. It's in all levels, all over, these types have been allocated to take over for so long now.

I'm an empath without a doubt and can't stand psychopaths. I worked for a corporation for 10 years before realizing the company is overrun with psychopath leadership. The worst part is that there are so many secondary psychopaths out there that have been created. I've had a lot of trauma in my life and there were moments where I feel I could have switched myself off and become one of those secondary psychos... However, at this point in my life I have learned to control my emotions instead of shutting them off. Going through tough times and working through it rather than lashing out and blaming the world has made me much stronger as a person. It is true that they can manipulate and use our emotions against us, but there are strong empaths in the world capable of meeting them head on. At the end of the day, we have something they don't. We will fight psychopaths at every turn as long as we walk this Earth.

This would be much less of an issue if most laws,rules,business policies etc... did not favor them as another member pointed out. So many have a bully pulpit to attack from yet are safe from reprisal because of these rules put in place regarding workplace violence and such. Why is it that physical violence is banned but emotional violence is not? If these a-holes can use these low tactics I should be able to put that same fear right back into them directly. Since they have no empathy and can't understand emotion or reason then my fist should do just fine as a communication tool for dealing with psychopaths should it not?

Maybe a bit extreme, I know. But to me, this is as close as it gets to tangible good vs. evil and I know which side I'm on.
