A psychopath is more dangerous because they have no moral center and no control over their actions.

I realize that psychopaths and narcissists are not actually suffering from "madness" but they are in possession of personality disorders that can cause them to look at the world in a totally different way than regular "neural normative" individuals. Freud noted that the people best suited to govern countries never actually wanted to. So maybe just as hystronic and narcissistic people go into acting to satisfy their cravings for attention the narcissist and psychopath head for political power and influence. Yet just as one personality disorder may make for better parenting than the other so too can one of them make for a dangerous politician, but one that is open to persuasion. So what do you think, is your senator or congressman one of these categories?
