What is a psychopath? A psychopath is someone who is born with no capability or a reduced capability to empathize with others. He or she does not share a common conscience with his or her fellow man. A sociopath, on the other hand, is someone who learns insensitivity to others via negative life experience. In the new DSM-V, both of these terms have been reduced to the term “Anti-Social Personality Disorder”, which I believe is a misnomer, since those who have this condition can often be VERY social, in a manipulative, self-serving way. Also, the idea that ASPD’s have no emotions is not true, in my experience with them. ASPD’s have plenty of emotion, but they are hyper-sensitive to their own emotions, and insensitive to the emotions of others.
As someone with an interest in economics, government, sexual politics, social psychology, and evolutionary psychology, I have wasted entirely too much time dissecting human behavior, as well as thinking in the macro about society in general. Perhaps these efforts are an attempt to understand humanity as much as they are to understand my own personal life, and the behavior of individuals within it. Both the dissecting analytical and creative visionary natures of my mind will not allow me to ignore how the individual’s actions affect society in general, nor will it allow me to avoid inferring general sociological conclusions from specific human situations.
I am not a hypersexual person, nor am I a greedy materialist. I find meaning in my studies, my art, and my work, rather than gross materialism or sensualism. This doesn’t mean I don’t want to be loved, provided for materially, and accepted socially. But in providing for myself and seeking social acceptance, I do try to keep an eye on the impact my behavior is having on my environment, from trying to reduce my carbon footprint, to trying to be righteous in my social actions, and having an ultimately positive impact on my community. I try to be just as sensitive to the needs of the planet and others as I am to my own needs. I do not seek to exploit others or be exploited by them.
But it seems as though people like myself are a dying breed. Manipulative, aggressive, exploitative psychopaths and insensitive, self-centered, conceited solipsists are taking over the world. For one thing, the dominant society on earth, Western society, is completely based on rewarding selfish behavior. We have built a society that rewards and propagates, more than anything, selfish, manipulative Machiavellianism. Who are the captains of industry, government, and society in America? The quiet, nerdy scientists who make everything work? The artists who look deep inside their souls to create something culturally relevant? No, these people are slaves who are exploited by an owner class of sleazy, manipulative executives who are merely glorified salesmen, incompetent managers, and crooked authorities, propped up by scientific powers they don’t fully understand.
Before the advent of civilization, the cerebral yet physically weak were beaten down by the impulsive and physically strong. But now that man is ‘civilized’, these impulsive reptiles have stopped killing the beta nerds, recognizing their value, and instead dominate them socially, economically, and governmentally, not destroying them, but exploiting their talents and enslaving them in subservient roles. These traditionally dominant bloodlines have devised a whole system of force, economy, and government in order to do this. Alpha insecurity about beta intellectual and moral superiority causes them to saddle betas with artificial handicaps, such as debts and criminal records, enforced by the fascist system. Basically, the personification of Western society is a bully that robs a nerd for his lunch money. And who is the woman in all this? She is a willing accomplice to the dominant alpha male, even if regret of her collusion causes her to make false rape allegations post hoc.
Americans have created a society where being a good person and being good at getting what one wants are diametrically antagonistic agendas. In this modern world, truly no good deed goes unpunished. Morality is often in conflict with both the law and business as usual. This is generally bad in that it creates a world where only the morally worst people rise to the top, whereas the morally decent people are ostracized and stripped of social, economic, and political power. This trend can be exemplified in business, politics, and even human sexuality, which itself is a huge factor in the evolution of the human race.
If men create patriarchy through acts of government oppression and economic exploitation, then women create matriarchy through sexual liberty and the social power structures it inevitably entails.
Unrestrained sexual liberty combined with existing social conventions, constructs, and institutions will destroy the human race if we let it. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy sex just as much as the next person, but I believe sexual behavior should be tempered by social conscience and responsibility, as very intense emotions are involved. So the potential for subterfuge, manipulation, and building oppressive social power structures through sex exists in the same way it exists for drugs, oil, or anything else humans want. Desire is the root of all suffering and it is through desire that people are subverted.
Unfortunately, there is no place in traditional romance for a man who is uncertain, who questions himself and everyone else, who is a skeptic. Instead, romance is dominated by over-confident, under-thinking macho douchebags, and women make it that way by allowing such people to twist their arms and talk them into contrived, often-times abusive relationships. A man has to be a manipulative psychopath to be loved by women these days, because of the female privilege and sense of entitlement. And which males are best equipped to give a woman what she wants? Those who have obeyed and gone along with the tyranny, thus winning resources through conquest.
As a conscientious objector to fascist whoredom masquerading as romance and sexual liberty, I look down upon the relations between the sexes and I say this:
Women are too conceited, spoiled, and self-centered, and it costs them their best opportunities. They have made it to where men have to jump through hoops and climb mountains to obtain their love, not realizing that the cost of admission they have set filters out the decent and the honest, and favors the aggressive and manipulative. If women weren’t so self-focused, they would fall in love with men before they were bribed by them, and pursue the men they found attractive, instead of gamely waiting for some opportunist posing as a knight in shining armor to come up with an approach to win them over, thus fulfilling unrealistic romantic fantasies.
Men, on the other hand, are too sexually driven. They so badly want to take it to the hole that they discard honesty and suppress their feelings. They end up in relationships with incompatible people just because they want to get laid. There is no brotherhood among men, and men steal and poison eachother’s romantic opportunities ruthlessly and mercilessly, often employing underhanded tactics in doing so. Basically, in order to meet in the middle, men need to be more passive, and women more aggressive. Romantic competition, traditionlly a contest of piousness, has become a race to the bottom, where the best man no longer wins, but the most ruthless. Sexual strategies of males have proven that “science is the rape of the natural world”, as Ian Malcolm would say, by creating a kind of artificial, “manufactured consent” as Noam Chomsky would say.
How is it possible that, statistically, women have more sex than men, and with more partners? The answer is simple: most single men don’t have sex very often (in fact, studies show that 20% of men have 80% of the sex), but a certain type of single man has a lot of sex with a lot of partners: the manipulative psychopath. The reason that more psychopaths are born every day is that existing social conventions and constructs regarding romance favor the psychopath. A man who can quickly, detachedly move from one target to the next will do much better than a man who is sentimental and has to contend with his own feelings and the inevitable sting of rejection. Thus, the emotionally insensitive outbreed people with feelings.
So the story of the American family is quite simple: Alpha male conquers world by dominating beta males, then with his stolen resources, he wins the solipsist female, and together they have babies that are even more selfish than themselves. This is how selfish genetics propagate themselves, with a little help from social constructs that encourage selfish behavior.
Women keep fucking psychopaths and having their babies, simply because they find emotional stoicism sexually attractive or due to simple material concerns, and, not wanting to put themselves through the headache of actually getting to know someone through proper romance, women seek out, through participation and selection bias in their romantic standards, men with these dominant attitudes specifically, for sexual play. Passive beta males, on the other hand, are left in a social prison of involuntary celibacy, unless they are able to make themselves so useful to the alphas that they might throw him their leftovers.
Often times, females will impregnate themselves via alphas, then settle down with a wealthy, stable, or loving beta and get him to raise the kid that isn’t even his! This is a perfect example of how women want one guy for his genetic material and another guy for his resources, which is why alphas often attempt to have wealth in addition to desirable genetics. I believe these attitudes are artifacts of pre-historic rape culture, whereby even modern men and women are acting out primitive gender roles, possibly due to inherent instinct. Whereas in pre-historic civilization, women were objectified by men, in modern society, women objectify themselves. But women are not objects. Objects are not subject to moral scrutiny.
In the past, women who tolerated or even enjoyed rape were far more likely to pass their genetics to the next generation than women who resisted, because those who resisted were simply killed, obliterated by men’s physical dominance. This is why many women still enjoy being dominated today. Aggressive women and submissive males are considered statistically anomalous mutations, even in modern society, and there are various psychological theories to address them, the most disturbing of which is modern gender relational theory, which often attempts to label as transgender or homosexual anyone who resists being confined to the gender roles defined, not by intrinsic human nature, but by obsolete social construct.
The Limbic system is the Reptillian brain. It enumerates the baser urges in the form of behaviors. In some humans, this structure plays a more dominant role in driving human behavior than others. The evolved human has a cerebrum, or a neo-cortex, through which all decisions pass. Those with more inhibitory neurons in their frontal lobes are more likely to scrutinize things, including their own or others’ behavior. This is what we call “thinking cerebrally” as opposed to merely acting impulsively, through instinct.
Evolutionary psychology tells us that selfish, manipulative people will have more sex with more partners than selfless, non-interfering people. The effect this ultimately has on the human population is to create more selfish, manipulative offspring. And thus society collapses and human civilization declines. Sexual liberty has unleashed a hoarde of demons upon this planet.
Female solipsism and hypergamy, combined with a governmental and economic system that promotes the worst of the worst has made romance a shallow, classist, materialist contrivance. When sex is awarded through bribery that is paid for via violent or unethical conquest, the victorious and dominant males in this system are merely participants in a more refined version of rape culture, and the female winners are mere fascist whores. Men often jock their “game”… but what does this word imply? That females are mere animals to be hunted. Any relationships started in this way are doomed to failure and encourage infidelity. When we act impulsively, without planning, we are not likely to be satisfied by what we get for very long. Women on the other hand have developed this ideology that monogamy and commitment are about ownership rather than simple respect for their partner’s feelings.
Perhaps romance should be approached from a more top-down perspective, a kind of meeting of the minds to determine compatibility before sex ever happens. But the nature of social power conflicts with such a civilized approach to dating. Social power is often in conflict with moral values. People are loyal to the people who make them feel good or support them materially, rather than being loyal to ideologies, such as peace, love, unity, and respect. Thus, in an overly- sensual, materialist society, social power is a function of immorality rather than merit.
Even those liberal enclaves who say they are dedicated to love are not often actually dedicated to the ideal of love… they are dedicated to eachother, the people to whom they have grown close over time… but for strangers, they reserve their hate. This is the easiest way to spot an enclave of groupthinkers… They support eachother in error, but will not support a stranger in being correct.
Personally, I’d rather be hyper-critical than hypo-critical. What’s funny is that the word “hypocrite” literally means “under critical”, as in they didn’t employ enough critical thinking, or they didn’t criticize enough, thus they became a hypocrite.This is why certain scenes that are based on “supporting eachother”, AKA “dick riding” become full of people who are hypocrites: because they haven’t criticized themselves or eachother, they have philosophies that are logically inconsistent. It’s kind of an “emperor wears no clothes” situation. I see a lot of that going on in the hippie/burner world, and pointing it out will only get you ostracized.
Even peaceful hippies are dependent upon war and empire for their sustenance, a fact which many liberals are in denial of. America’s wars are all resource wars, and the only way to stop them is to curb demand, and yet sensualists and materialists carry on their decadence in escape of this most basic of grim truths and harsh realities. And this begs the question: Is your touchy-feely positivity really all that positive if it comes at the expense of the under-privileged, either on the other side of the world, or in the ghetto across town?
There is nothing worse than a spoiled person who does not realize they have an exploitative relationship with the world. They think that prosperity is something that happens with minimal effort just because they were born into the driver class of a tyrannical system. They don’t realize the extent to which their prosperity is the result of the efforts of others.
Manipulation often takes on an appearance of positivity when critical thinking is undervalued. Just because someone is outwardly, superficially good to others, doesn’t mean they are a good person. Most people will act like saints when they want something out of someone, but this doesn’t mean they aren’t actually devils inside, wolves in sheeps’ clothing. Even someone who is outwardly positive may not have good intentions.
Also, actions perceived to be “negative” can have a positive impact on society. Killing Hitler, for example, is generally seen as a positive action, even though it was a brutal act of war, as the overall effect on the greater good was positive, in that it was in everyone’s interest to have a world with no Nazi genocide. On the other hand, supporting an over eater, while outwardly positive, may have a negative effect in the form of enabling an overweight person to put their health at risk with poor eating habits. Often times, people are spared the truth, because keeping them in the dark is seen as “for their own good”. This is really just a chickenshit way of avoiding confrontation, as keeping someone in an inaccurate worldview is NEVER for their own good, and can often be quite destructive to that person’s relationship with reality.
A person who “goes with the flow” will usually be rewarded in modern society, even if that flow is wrong. Those who stand up for themselves or others will often be saddled with stigmas and burdens by a system and a society that deliberately seeks to quiet the critics, in order to keep the gluttonous orgy of Western civilization going. This is why the Romans crucified Jesus, people who refuse to snitch do time in prison, and honest ethical people often find themselves in poverty. Civil disobedience and activism are often seen as valuing one’s impact on their community moreso than their own personal fate.
And so, what can the cerebral, capable, morally upright people do to combat this domination by psychopaths via their overpopulation and construction of power structures to marginalize and exploit us? Well for one thing, we must examine ourselves, and route out selfishness. Meditation and self-reflection will bring about a better understanding of ourselves and eachother. But this needs to be combined with an obsession with fairness, equality, and social justice. Knowing that social conscience is deliberately being punished, starved out, and bred out by the system, we must make efforts to cultivate it within ourselves and eachother, and whenever possible, institutionalize it! Quite simply, Americans need to change their values, and what is valued by them.
What is more important to you? Being rich or being ethical and morally correct? Your standard of living and comfort, or your lofty ideals? And how far are you willing to go to promote basic morality and pro-social behavior, even in the face of material and criminal punishment, as well as social ostracization? How much are you willing to sacrifice for what you believe in? These are questions we must all ask ourselves, and if we are to have and value integrity, we must respond in a certain way. Pro-social behavior in the form of cooperative initiatives for genuine positivity are important to the survival and prosperity of the human race, and should be valued more highly than the riches of Croesus. The more people take a stand against the materialist, tyrannical system, the less it will be able to sustain itself via our compliance.
But there are many self-serving philosophies that humans cling to as an excuse to shirk their social responsibilities, and many of them are spiritual or religious as well as political and economic. The idea of Justice in the afterlife is one, as is karma, the idea that “what goes around comes around” eventually. Neither one of these ideas is based in any evidence whatsoever, but they conveniently provide us rationalization to look the other way from social and systemic injustice. But what if there is no God or afterlife? What if we must do Justice NOW, or good deeds will go forever unrewarded and bad deeds forever unpunished? Gandhi himself thought that the Hindu caste system was inhumane and unjust, even as Westerners use their poor understanding of ascetic Eastern philosophies to rationalize letting injustices lie.
Perhaps dogmatic morality should be abandoned in favor of a more pragmatic situational ethics. Maybe victims shouldn’t be blamed, they should be recompensed by appeasing their personal sense of justice and restoring what was stripped from them. Promoting social justice is just as important as ending systemic injustice. What we need is a system that encourages good behavior instead of bad behavior, while at the same time treating social problems as public health issues rather than private shames and public melodramas. But public attitudes need to change from their current lassiez-faire state. Such attitudes only cause the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer, both materially AND socially.
There are also a lot of victim blaming and “God only helps those who help themselves” type mentalities that help people not only rationalize their selfishness, but hold others at fault for being too selfless or idealistic. Often times, when an individual has a problem, society brainstorms a way to blame the victim for his own problem instead of helping him solve it. This is social negligence, plain and simple. Society should exist to support the individual as much as the individual supports society, otherwise the relationship between the constituent and his group becomes exploitative. And there are many problems which can only be solved with cooperation, therefore it is the fault of the uncooperative that problems remain unsolved. And yet uncooperative people will often blame others for their personal problems even if they couldn’t possibly solve those problems themselves. And too often in America, problems are exploited rather than solved.
These are the attitudes that need to be fought against, otherwise the human race will find itself overrun by psychopaths and their bad behavior, pillaging, raping, and hurting those of us who still have feelings. Humans, especially those in the free world, need to learn self-restraint, willpower, and sensitivity to eachother’s needs, otherwise, we will destroy ourselves and eachother with selfishness and greed. The world will become more dog-eat-dog, and society will give way to mere chaos. And life will become a race to the bottom, where only the most ruthless sociopaths win. The anti-psycho, pro-social attitude is the progressive attitude. This is what separates humans from animals: the higher conscious will. The drive to become better than human.
