Doug Casey, one of the most enlightened writers in economics and finance I know, recently published an extensive essay about sociopaths. Casey writes:
- Sociopaths completely lack a conscience or any capacity for real regret about hurting people. Although they pretend the opposite.
- Sociopaths put their own desires and wants on a totally different level from those of other people. Their wants are incommensurate. They truly believe their ends justify their means. Although they pretend the opposite.
- Sociopaths consider themselves superior to everyone else, because they aren’t burdened by the emotions and ethics others have – they’re above all that. They’re arrogant. Although they pretend the opposite.
- Sociopaths never accept the slightest responsibility for anything that goes wrong, even though they’re responsible for almost everything that goes wrong. You’ll never hear a sincere apology from them.
Dr. Robert Hare says that, “Psychopaths see nothing wrong with themselves, experience little personal distress, and find their behavior rational, rewarding, and satisfying; they never look back with regret or forward with concern. They perceive themselves as superior beings.” They are not crazy, according to accepted legal and psychiatric standards. Their acts result not from a deranged mind but from a cold, calculating rationality combined with a chilling inability to treat others as thinking, feeling human beings. …
Sounds like a perfect description of too many mainstream doctors today, who act like Gods in all their self-righteousness. Common denominators between doctors and sociopaths are traits such as superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others. Most doctors think they know better about how other peoples’ lives should be lived or ended.
Some might think it an exaggeration to put mainstream doctors in the same boat as extremely sick and dangerous people but modern medicine in the United States is putting people in their graves in large numbers but before it does, the system is beating them into bankruptcy. It matters little to them the hundreds of thousands of people each year who suffer and die at their hands. Most people do not recognize doctors as psychopaths or sociopaths until they are trapped, suffering or dying at the hands of one. Most mainstream doctors are practicing pharmaceutical terrorism, even at the highest levels at the CDC. …
