Sociopaths and psychopaths are know to have an impact on the people around them and radiate the pathology, influencing them to also be like that.

In this case it radiates out into our democracy and, though some are immune and aware, others easily catch it.

Think about radiating rings from the Administration, (the servile sycophants in bondage to their sociopathic boss) outwards through the layers of government, (consider examples like DeVoss and Carson) and all the way out to the MAGATs that he despises even as they shed tears for him of extreme devotion.

Often seen anywhere from the barfly trying to pick up ladies in the local bar all the way up to CEOs of our largest corporations and high political office.

We still have a lot of evolving to do.....

in our population that do not want a unified, community-minded society. Their hidden goal it to eliminate anything that restricts power of the wealthy in any way.

There's nothing powerful and ultra-wealthy people fear more than a unified populace working against them.

So, over the last 50 or so years, they've corralled most all of the psychopaths, the majority of high-wealth individuals, most of those who have highly fearful insecure personalities, those whose personalities demand an authoritarian structure in their lives, people who are brainwashed in religion, and millions who are just outright spoiled selfish, self-centered assholes. Just to get their votes.

Did I miss any?

I could not agree with you more. I think he may be what some religions call "the devil." My new age/new thought belief sees him as the vessel in which the evilest of energy has been channeled through. Having said that, I also believe that the light and good is stronger and will triumph.
