The Conservative March Toward a Society of Sociopaths



Last night I spent some time with a close friend (letís call him Jake) and as we often do when we get together, we discussed politics. You see, heís a fantastic source for political insight because he doesnít really follow politics or have any kind of political affiliation. Hell, I donít know if heís ever even voted.

But Jake is a great source because he has another close friend, letís call him Stan, whoís a far right-wing conservative. Therefore he hears my side and Stanís side, watches the news, reads the paper and based on only what he sees as logical and rational he molds his opinion.

Which to this point he often tells me most of the stuff Stan says to him just doesnít make any sense. Last night when discussing Stan and some of what I refer to as his asinine political beliefs, it occurred to meóStan is exactly how Republicans want Americans to behave.

And Stan is a sociopath.

Heís a white male, strongly opposed to most other races and immigrants. Believes every single far right-wing economic theory imaginable and actually cited Argentina as a ďbeacon for true capitalism.Ē

He has no remorse for others, seems to live in a world where heís the focal point but he presents himself as extremely charming and personable when you first meet him. He has no problem ignoring social ethics or morals if it benefits his self interest. Heís told my friend that people should only worry about themselves, and not care about the struggles of others. That in life, self interests should trump everything else.

1. Just described every single TeaParTY person in America...was watching Larry Wilmore and that ass

Jim Norton is on calling Hillary a psychopath.

Fuck you Jim Norton


The person described will also negatively effect his own family, he will steal from other family members, lie, etc

A relative who fought in Nam told the story of the ENDLESS times hippies spat on returning soldiers, a lie of course, it rarely happened, but he and others like him told this lie to everybody who would listen so now if you are a liberal or Democrat by default you are a 1960's hippie spitting on returning soldiers.

2. Very interesting.

Sounds like my older brother: gun-loving, racist Christian, tea party Republican, who loathed everyone who didn't look and act and think just like him.

4. Sounds very familiar like someone I know who has little interest in people if they're not up,

successful and eternally positive, in short 'winners' which he id's with. An extreme extrovert, very charming and personable, highly intelligent, liar, self absorbed, self loving, achiever in finance, go figure. When asked about his older brother who suffered depression after two heart attacks and committed suicide he said, 'people like that just drag you down'. He was the one who had to break into the locked house to find his dead brother. Never talked about it or received counseling, that's for the weak. He's not a conservative but votes democratic, loves Clinton. Class 1 sociopath.
