Is the Root of Evil the Psychopathic Mind?
As such a useful tool of exchange, money is not inherently evil. Money can be a springboard to such evil as bailout-begging banks too monstrous to fail gambling with taxpayer wealth—you know, private profits, public risk. Casino financialization with taxpayers as a backstop. The $700 billion TARP bailout actually being a $23.7 trillion bailout. But the root of all evil is the human brain.
New research has exposed, shall we say, the root of the problem. Pathocracy is its flower.
Definition: pathocracy (n). A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people (from Political Ponerology: A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes, by Andrew Lobaczewski).
A small minority of people are born psychopaths; they inherit a genetic deviance linked to certain structural abnormalities of their social brain.
The physical dynamic that exposes psychopaths is a reduction of gray matter in the anterior rostral prefrontal cortex and temporal poles. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is able to image this deviation fundamental to psychopathy. Potential benefits to humanity are immense; imagine something like a TSA screening (without the bureaucracy, groping and humiliation) to keep psychopaths from boarding the flight to power.
Psychopaths enjoy a perverse advantage over normal people in ascending pyramids of power. Unfettered by conscience, empathy, morality...some might say, without the weight of a soul, psychopaths readily rise to the top in a society turned upside down by pathocracy. Lying, cheating, stealing, backstabbing—without remorse, psychopaths can claw for power in ways that make a person with a conscience recoil.
It’s not so much that power corrupts as that the corrupt seek power...MORE...LINK
It's an age old question: nature or nurture?
I believe a lot of Jewish Zionists have been turned into sociopaths by their Judeo-supremacist ideology/system. It's designed to squeeze all compassion for non-Jews out of Jews by relentlessly preaching that non-Jews are lesser, or are animals, in order to destroy their humanity.
For example, this leading Lithuanian rabbi recently said that all non-Jews are "murderers, thieves, brainless people, evil doers."
So once the Zionists have turned their prey into sociopaths, are those sociopaths likely to pass down their sociopathy through the genes, or are their children born normally and systematically turned into sociopaths by their parents?
I'd tend to say that Zionism takes normal people and turns them into sociopaths, because so many of even non-Jews who embrace Zionism turn into monsters, as witnessed by most of the Beltway politicians who seemed so normal when we elected them, but who have been systematically turned into sociopaths and moral monsters by the Beltway political culture of Zionism/neoconservatism/statist totalitarianism and its attendant War on Terror.
