DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT FEELINGS ALL THE TIME? | 2003-02-22
America's leadership is made up almost entirely of sociopaths
A sociopath is a person who is incapable of any genuine empathy with other people or any feelings of guilt. It sounds extreme, so we assume that genuine sociopaths are rare.
Recent studies have shown that genuine sociopaths are actually very common. There are between three million and ten million sociopaths in the United States alone.
Most sociopaths don't know that they are sociopaths. They spend their entire lives faking empathy and guilt and all the rest, and since they don't know what the real thing feels like, they think they genuinely feel empathy and guilt.
The result is that it is very hard for most people to feel all the empathy and guilt that the ruling sociopaths tell them they should feel. A sociopath honestly believes that his attitudes are just right all the time.
In a multicultural society the sociopath is king. Real people, people who are not sociopaths, have a lot of gut feelings and prejudices. In a multiculture you are not allowed to have gut feelings or "prejudices". Only a true sociopath can rise to the top in a multiculture.
So on a talk show, when a liberal sociopath tells a conservative sociopath that he is anti-war the conservative has no problem with that. The conservative is playing Patriot and the liberal is playing Peace Prophet, and it never occurs to either one of them that the "discussion" they a having is insane.
