Saturday Sociopathic Sedition

The Sociopathic behavior of Corporate entities is inherent in their sole purpose of producing profits for their shareholders.  These entities are best described as “a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others that begins in childhood and continues into adolescence and adulthood.”

The very root of Capitalism is Sociopathic because capitalism depends upon making “profit” off others be they human or business.  The signs and symptoms of the sociopath are:

Characteristics of people with antisocial personality disorder may include:[2]

  • Persistent lying or stealing
  • Apparent lack of remorse[3] or empathy for others
  • Cruelty to animals[4]
  • Poor behavioral controls — expressions of irritability, annoyance, impatience, threats, aggression, and verbal abuse; inadequate control of anger and temper
  • A history of childhood conduct disorder
  • Recurring difficulties with the law
  • Tendency to violate the boundaries and rights of others
  • Substance abuse
  • Aggressive, often violent behavior; prone to getting involved in fights
  • Inability to tolerate boredom
  • Disregard for safety

The Diagnostic methodology and symptoms expressed are:

A) There is a pervasive pattern of disregard for and the rights of others occurring since the age of 15, as indicated by three (or more) of the following:
  1. failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest;
  2. deceitfulness, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure;
  3. impulsivity or failure to plan ahead;
  4. irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults;
  5. reckless disregard for safety of self or others;
  6. consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations;
  7. lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another.
B) The individual is at least 18 years of age.
C) There is evidence of Conduct disorder with onset before age 15.
D) The occurrence of antisocial behavior is not exclusively during the course of schizophrenia or a manic episode.

The World Health Organization has this to say on the topic:

The World Health Organization‘s ICD-10 defines a conceptually similar disorder to antisocial personality disorder called (F60.2) Dissocial personality disorder.[6]

It is characterized by at least 3 of the following:
  1. Callous unconcern for the feelings of others and lack of the capacity for empathy.
  2. Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, rules, and obligations.
  3. Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships.
  4. Very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.
  5. Incapacity to experience guilt and to profit from experience, particularly punishment.
  6. Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalizations for the behavior bringing the subject into conflict.
  7. Persistent irritability.
The criteria specifically rule out conduct disorders.[7] Dissocial personality disorder criteria differ from those for antisocial and sociopathic personality disorders.[8]

It is a requirement of ICD-10 that a diagnosis of any specific personality disorder also satisfies a set of general personality disorder criteria.

Theodor Million identifies 5 distinct types:

Theodore Millon identified five subtypes of antisocial.[9][10] Any individual antisocial may exhibit none, one or more than one of the following:

  • covetous antisocial – variant of the pure pattern where individuals feel that life has not given them their due.
  • reputation-defending antisocial – including narcissistic features
  • risk-taking antisocial – including histrionic features

This establishes the definition of the topic of the Sociopath within today’s discussion.

Regardless of where you look within America today, the Capitalist economy, the politics or the day-to-day culture the sociopath is ever present and increasingly feeding upon it’s own.

Corporate acts are necessarily sociopathic in that there is only one goal and that is profits for the Corporate entity and all those sociopaths supporting it.  Does anyone really think that BP or the Corporate Government of the United States has the Gulf Citizens best interests at heart.  In the immortal words of John Boehner; “HELL NO!”

It is this sociopathic culture of the Republican Cults of Jesus Inc and their Blue Dog Democrats choir that’s brought us to the brink of ruin from the disasterious  acts of the Bush/Cheney Wrecking Crew within the Halliburton White House and it contiues and amplifies with the Goldman Sachs White House with the common denominator being the FED.
