THE SOCIOPATH-  A DANGER ALL AROUND US.  PT 1.

Look for what lies underneath the surface.When certain acts of violence are reported in the media, how often do we hear the following;
  • "How could he do that to his best friend."
  • "Why would a mother hurt her own children."
  • "He's such a nice guy and a good family man, he can't be guilty."
  • "The victims were so innocent, why would anyone want to hurt them." 
Of course there are numerous other examples I could use, but the point is clear.  Even after thousands of examples throughout the centuries, we are still caught off-guard by acts of seemingly senseless violence and brutality. However, we shouldn't be.  There is now, and perhaps has always been, a certain segment of Humanity that thrives on the misery they cause to others.THE SOCIOPATH.

I will define the Sociopath as; An individual with a fully developed and ingrained personality that;
  • Uses others as tools to satisfy individual desires.
  • Lacks remorse or empathy for the pain and suffering they cause to others.
  • Has a Grandiose, Inflated self-image that makes them feel like they are the center of the universe.
  • Enjoys Deceiving and Manipulating people, often for no other reason then a sense of power.
  • Positive words such as Dignity, Honor and Duty or negative words such as Cruelty, Prejudice and Suffer are meaningless. They represent concepts foreign to the Sociopath.
To put it simply, the Sociopath represents a personality that most of us cannot comprehend or identify with. That is where the Danger lies.  They use this lack of knowledge to cultivate new victims who are unaware of their true nature.
