Vital Info to study: Political Ponerology and Psychopaths

What is REALLY wrong with our leaders?

For all of my life, one of my greatest interests has been to understand the nature of human evil, and deception is one of the primary characteristics of evil people.

Quotes from researchers:

"Imagine – if you can – NOT HAVING A CONSCIENCE, NONE AT ALL, no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members. Imagine no struggles with shame, not a single one in your whole life, no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action you had taken.

Now add to this, the ability to conceal from other people that your psychological makeup is radically different from theirs. Since everyone simply assumes that conscience is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscience-free is nearly effortless.

For most people, evil is something you find in prisons or slums. They simply do not think of people who have money and dress nicely as being evil. But successful psychopaths do not end up in prisons or slums. They can be bankers, physicians, professionals of any stripe, politicians, even leaders of nations."

Here's a subject area that people in our movement need to be familiar with so we have a better understanding of the world we live in - and how the minds of the elite work. NO MOVEMENT WILL EVER SUCCEED THAT DOES NOT FACTOR PSYCHOPATHY AND PONEROLOGY INTO ITS CONSIDERATIONS!"

POLITICAL PONEROLOGY – "A science on the nature of evil adjusted for political purposes”.

Someone else posted a link to this article, but it probably got buried. Awesome article (Ron Paul is mentioned)

If nothing else

Please read this article. It sums it up nicely and it's fairly short.

Changed the title..

maybe the post will get more attention


Keep it on the front page for awhile.

Have you noticed CNBC has started human interest stories about

Corporations? How wonderful and caring companies are... NOT!

As soon as they think we're on to some topic they don't discuss in the MSM, they suddenly have to address it, start talking about it(where there was nothing but silence before) and putting their own spin on it. The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure movies, and the History channel's Secret Societies special come to mind.

Next: Discovery Channel does a special on Chemtrails, and tells us that these plane emmisions are helping to combat global warming...lol

Excellent article

Definitely click on that link.

And if you want to read my take on the subject (and its relevance to the Ron Paul / Freedom movement) you might also want to check out a post I wrote a couple of months back titled "Personality Disorders and Politics - 101":


This isn't just a problem for large corporations and governments.
We need to be aware of the integrity of anyone who would propose to be one of OUR leaders.

The Virtual Conspiracy


spacehabits- Your post is also good. Perhaps you can start another thread along side this one.

tricks of psychopaths

please bump this topic.
the info about the sick behavior of those in control needs to get out
to all.
thanks for posting it first, whoever did...

Ron Paul is My President

Look deeper

Push come to shove, after reading some comments, let me say,
this type of could be, might not be, attitude is very well uninformed.

Research into:

skull and bones

and other occult groups. You will find that high level, in power politicians
are very much based in these. Bush and Kerry as an example (youtube it)

There is a clear and distinct group of persons that are in their own minds gods, and all of us are the lesser human species. That's not my opinion, thats the occultic belief and the practice as can be seen in all the lies and actions manifest. As well as all the literature available on this.

Call them phsyco or socio is not really relevant. These people are out to hurt large segements of the population. Some enjoy it, others see it as necessary. Motive aside, it's happening as has happened through out history for the same reasons.

Also lookup JFK and his comments on secret societies. Chilling.

We all need to wake up to this dark religion that these people participate in.
Dig deeper an you will stumble across the fact that these occultists actually workship lucifer as per their occult religion.

Ordo Ab Chao

The world and how it works will suddenly make a lot of sense as to the why.

I think it's all related

These "people" lack that which makes us human - a soul; a conscience.

Thats was a great article

thanks for sharing!

This is a brilliant and well-regarded article, posted at countless blogs.
Mentions Ron Paul and the rEVOLution.

Twilight of the Psychopaths
By Dr. Kevin Barrett

...Civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilizations, our own included, have been based on slavery and "warfare." Incidentally, the latter term is a euphemism for mass murder.

The prevailing recipe for civilization is simple:

1) Use lies and brainwashing to create an army of controlled, systematic mass murderers;

2) Use that army to enslave large numbers of people (i.e. seize control of their labour power and its fruits);

3) Use that slave labour power to improve the brainwashing process (by using the economic surplus to employ scribes, priests, and PR men). Then go back to step one and repeat the process.

- - -

But thanks to the power of the Internet, people everywhere are waking up. The only obvious non-psychopath among Republican presidential candidates, Ron Paul, also happens to be the only candidate in either party with significant grassroots support.

If "love" is embedded in the Revolution Ron Paul heralds, that is because Dr. Paul - a kindly, soft-spoken physician who has delivered more than 4,000 babies - implicitly recognizes that government is the invention and tool of psychopaths, and therefore must be strictly limited in scope and subjected to a rigorous system of checks and balances, lest the psychopath's tools, fear and hatred, replace love as the glue that binds society together....


From the March 2008 Idaho Observer:

Love and Freedom needed for non-psychopath society

I support Dr. Paul for exactly that reason: love and freedom are a DUALITY -- each requires and is part of the other. Paul's work -- including before and after the presidential run -- has been a clearly heart-felt and honest work of support for love and freedom, and an educational campaign that is finally -- hooray! -- paying off. Let's keep it going!

Coercion harms both love and freedom; this is why "that government is best which governs least."

Has anyone read this book yet?

What are your thoughts on it and was it worth it?

Catherine Austin Fitts

Catherine Austin Fitts evaluated it on her site (solari.com) and she says that it was dry but very informative. I think it's like the people in this commentary state, you have to think of it more like a text book. If you are used to reading text books the you'll likely find it worthwhile.

It would be great

if there were more laws enacted to enable us to identify and remove psychopaths from society easier...except..uh who makes the laws?

I had a problem with these points:

I quote, "The pushing of neoliberalism on the rest of the world is also a way to ponerize greater portions of the globe. It is a pathological ideology hiding behind an economic pseudo-science"

I happen to believe in that 'economic pseudo-science'. Having recieved a degree in economics and having read Dr. Milton Friedman, Von Mises, Hayek, and many others, .... its very hard for me to see it as a 'pseudo-science'.

Indeed, as a young college freshman, deeply concerned about the poor, wanted to help them, wanted to understand why they are poor, wanting to understand the economy as a result from my caring about society as a whole. One of the first things I learned was economics is all 'counter intuitive', or that is to say, the right answer is often opposite of what your first thought may be. Take the idea to 'raise the minimum wage'. As a freshman I thought that would be a good thing, for the poor at least. Yet upon study, it is exactly the worst thing to do.

See Milton Friedman here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ca8Z__o52sk

So I bet to differ with the idea that free market capitalism is a bad thing for society.

It is a "soft" science

Fortune Favors the Bold

like psychology. You can't create experiments with repeatable results

Fortune Favors the Bold

I don't think that's what they meant by that

Theye probably meant something along the lines of...due to the fact that we're becoming conditioned into sort of "secondary psychopaths", we find it acceptable, and even economically desirable to do things like...invade other countries and take their resources.

I'm almost done reading this

I'm almost done reading this interview. Its very good.

To add to the earlier list of other sources to read, John Dean came out with a book in the last couple years called "Conservatives Without Conscience". The scope isn't as full as that found in this article but its pretty good. It is especially useful in waking up Republicans. The book comes from conversations Dean had with Barry Goldwater prior to his death. When combined with Dean's research on this topic its a real eye opener to those who still follow the Republican line because they believe the lies.

Also note that there's a move on to replace "psychopathy" with the more poltically correct and harder-to-prove "anti-social behavior".

I urge everyone to read this great article



"The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government". ~ Founding Fathers

Excellent article

Thank you!

People are starting to put 2 and 2 and 2 and 2 together.

Now, the problem is, these psychopaths have human rights since they look human, but are lacking that which makes us human - a conscience; a soul.

So what's the solution to getting rid of them?

Quarantine them...

and make sure the never get positions of power.
Notify people in the neighbourhood that they live next door to a psychopath just like we do with sex offenders, and just generally keep a VERY close eye on them.
