by definition, have no compassion for other people in pain and misery. A psychological
testing had been performed some years ago:
A number of people were shown a movie of people being humiliated, beaten and tortured
(only a movie, of course, but it looked real). Each of them was also being given a
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) test. The results showed:
Normal people had feelings ranging from disgust to horror, and this could be verified
when their MRI tests showed that the "pain" or "displeasure center" of their brain was aroused. This can be seen as an enlargement of the arteries supplying the displeasure
center of the brain.
Sociopaths and psychopaths showed no change in their MRIs.
On the other hand, sadistic socio- and psychopaths did show a change in their MRIs.
Their "pleasure center," which is located in a different part of the brain, was aroused.
They were enjoying what they were seeing!
We've got to have fewer of these sociopaths in high places. They can bring nothing to
our nation but ruin and destruction. And being sickos, most of them don't even know they
are destroying our nation. The few who do know, don't even care. Their consciences are
defective. Their concept of morality never developed beyond the stage of that of the
small child. It remained arrested there.
Can these sickos be blamed for being they way they are? Of course not! But we don't
have to elect them to positions of high responsibility either. They are not capable of
feeling responsible for anything.
