  • Psychopath Screening: Excluding Psychopaths from Government

    Many instances of corruption and crime in government and society can be attributed to psychopaths. Sept 11 (w.t.c), Watergate, and similar historical events, for example.

    We now have the capacity to realize the benefits of excluding psychopaths from such institutions, especially those of high integrity.

    I would therefore like to discuss the issue of psychopathy screening protocols, their impact thus far, and ways to improve upon them.

    Oh, sweet Jeebus...

    If we can screen for psychos, you would think we'd keep them off O.com.

    Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

    Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

      If you're going to spout 9/11 truther crap, you're on the wrong website. Save it for Democratic Underground or other tinfoil hat sites.

        OK, so they wanted to discuss it, but then left the topic up for discussion amongst ourselves. I think they should come up with new tests, in order to establish insanity. Apparently the old ones aren't working.

            I speak a language my collegues and doctors refer to as "High Functioning Sociopath"

            What would you like to discuss?

            Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it is vanity;
            but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
            for they act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible.....”

              Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for the rights of others and the rules of society. Psychopaths have a total lack of empathy and remorse, and have very shallow emotions. They are generally regarded as callous, selfish, dishonest, arrogant, aggressive, impulsive, irresponsible, and hedonistic.

              There is no consensus about the symptom criteria for psychopathy, and no psychiatric or psychological organization has sanctioned a diagnosis of "psychopathy" itself.
