As more and more studies demonstrating the corrosive effect of psychopathy on government, finance, and business emerge, researchers have begun to explore how our society itself has been molded in the psychopaths' image. Now, one of those researchers, Stefan Verstappen, shares his insights on psychopathy in modern culture. This is the GRTV Feature interview on Global Research TV.

Psychopaths aren't created they are born, Sociopaths they are near identical to psychopaths but they are created (usually by environment, bad company...etc) but they aren't born.

What this man describes is what has caused severe depression for me. I have been watching the psychopaths all of my life and have always wondered why nobody stops them from controlling us. When I try to get people to rise up against psychopaths, nobody seems to care enough and would rather let them rule us the way they do and keep us on our knees. The enemy is also the general population who allow these bastards to thrive. When I hear someone say "Oh, they are the lesser of two evils so I voted for them" I want to throw up. These bastards have our complacency to thank for their awesome power to control all of us.

That is exactly what I have had to do with a psychopathic narcissist who was close to me. I have severed all contact. They are parasites who will suck the life out of you if you let them. The truth is, they cannot operate without our consent, and without us they are nothing.

Without some kind mass education of what psychopaths are and how we, as a society, can learn to recognize them, how can we stop electing them and hiring them to jobs that empower them like police, judges and teachers?

Western civilisation will continue to suffer as long as it fails to identify psychopaths and expose their lies. “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty, ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” -Richard Dawkins Christians and Muslims have inherited the god of the Old Testament. The seed of the insanity is in our religion, too.

Unfortunately, psychopaths have great influence over most everyone.. including medical doctors. I am a targeted individual. The victim of organized corporate stalking. I am harassed everyday with the help of advanced technology, state and government agencies. Their defense is that we targeted individual are "delusional - persecutory". I was systematically and brutally maimed via workers compensation medical procedures over a period of more than a year. At the 3rd lumbar ESI procedure, I was brutally forced under anesthesia, when I awakened, I had been maimed from my skull down to my tailbone, my entire back, muscles, soft tissue, neck, shoulders, spinal column were all injected with some sort of chemical that over the next few weeks, burned and corroded the soft tissue in my entire back. They have induced the look of degenerative disk disease, fybromyalgia, arthritis, auto-immune, connective tissue disorder and more. They also injected my liver and esophagus with chemicals also. I am hit with electromagnetic waves of energy daily and I am harassed via overt aggressive stalking and electronic particle beaming of mal-odors that include skunk, excrement, urine, burning rubber, burning wood, burning oil, pesticide, burning electrical wires, gasoline, lighter fluid, gas, human expell of gass - toot/fart, and much more. Clearly, my former employer has a connection or connections with government contractors and government because I have witnessed state and local government employees who have acted out against me to add to the "organized stalking tactics". The phenomenon of organized stalking has proliferated throughout the United States and it is being done to innocent people all over the world. It is clearly an issue of "those who are in the club" can utilize government resources and tax payer funds to punish, retaliate and get revenge against those who may or may not have stepped on their toes. To learn more about organized stalking and electronic harassment go to "People Against Covert Torture and Surveillance" on the net.

good insights & great to see others are on to the promoting of psychopathy.. I even tend to take it further down the line by looking at a possible relation between politics and passive aggressiveness. I believe the latter is very much a dynamic among politicians cuz they NEVER do the fighting when in war times, they are never the ones to suffer hunger, frustration about a lack of basic needs, their childeren have proper schoolings and they 'earn' tons of money next to all they receive in compensations. What better place is there on earth for a passive aggressor than politics ???

One thing they all have in common regardless of their I.Q. is their hubris." Well on of common trait for Psychopaths and Sociopaths is that it is always followed by narcissism, but not every narcis is a sociopath or a psychopath which are, i'm sure you already know it not the same thing.

Also neurotypicals can also be intelligent, and manipulative. Those aren't completely exclusive to just psychopaths. Many psychos think they are smarter than they actually are, that is called a delusion which can be a person's downfall.

It's willing, or unknowing Satanism. Lies and Selfishness are Satanism, or part of the Lucifer followers ideology, that they attempt to impose upon the world, as falsely "normal". They want you to allow them to "do as thou wilt". The key word in that quote is the last one "wilt": which symbolizes dying, or 1. To become limp or flaccid; droop: plants wilting in the heat. 2. To feel or exhibit the effects of fatigue or exhaustion; weaken markedly: "His brain wilted from hitherto unprecedented weariness" (Vladimir Nabokov). They are attempting to create societies that accept their deceptive, selfish, theft systems, control over others, abuse, and perversion etc. Many are willingly involved, but others have become socially engineered by their deceptions, and are unknowingly involved. The best way to help somebody who is under their lies spells, is to smile, or joke with them, to break through the mind control, then calmly tell them the truth, educate them, or point them in the direction of more honest information, or ways to live happily and peacefully with others etc.

You may be onto something. I once advocated for the use of functional MRI's to identify psychopaths and then get rid of them somehow, whether violent or otherwise. But you raise a good point about them somehow turning it against the rest of us. It's true, they have turned seemingly every other method we've created to protect ourselves from them against us, why wouldn't they turn that as well? Education truly is the best way. And if everyone is aware of who they are and how they operate, no one will associate with them. If no one associates with them, no one will back them politically, let alone vote for them. No one will allow them to rise in a business, let alone buy their product. No one will believe their dogmatic bullshit in whatever religion they're part of. It may not be necessary to imprison or kill them. If no one associates with them, they won't have power. They may even become benign over time.
Isochest (3 года назад)
+Burt Kocain We can cut them off power and control by refusing to be controlled by them. That is the best defence. If you are targeted by one, to defend yourself you must remember a P uses the Drama Triangle. Jane and Tim McGregor call this the Sociopath Empath Apath Triangle in their book The Empathy Trap. The authors of this book reckon about a third of us are empaths, 1-6% are Sociopaths Psychopaths and or Narcissists and most of all 60% are "Apaths". It is this 60% which I believe the people Ps depend on to get power and control. The Ps have little or no trouble in charming them to switch off their conscience and they seem willing to enter into some kind of Faustian Pact to bring down the P's target. If this happens you have to exit that triangle or change it's dynamic (substitute an empath for the P's Apath). The fact that so many people are Apaths means we have to create a Culture of Empathy and instigate Limbic Therapy on those around us. In doing this the indifferent in humanity will grow a backbone and a strong conscience. If that is revolting to the Psychopath so be it.

Duh. That the most vicious and ruthless survive where rules create a death-gamble isn't odd, it's expected that they will be the last to be morted. Then again, if the debt-slaves could overthrow the owners so we owe exactly what we borrowed, enough money to get out of debt with no debt growth, sure we could all survive. But right now the rules of the game are DEATH-GAMBLE, pay back 11 for every 10 printed and we only printed 10, har har har, and without getting rid of the cause of the growth of debt, interest, it's hopeless.

There is a test that is 100% accurate to see if someone is a psychopath...I forget what it's called but it involves hooking up the head with some sensors to read your brain while they show you some emotionally laden photos and videos, and there are certain areas of the brain that simply do not react in the psychopath! ...but he is correct in that the testers can be controlled and the results can be fudged and obfuscated if the psychopaths can gain some control over the tests and testers!

Our culture is extremely psychopathic.America represents 5% of the population and mass murders 9 billion land animals every year.Killing more animals then there are people in the world and feeding off their flesh is extremely psychopathic. People think if we rid the world of our psychopathic leaders everything will be fine but we literally live off the enslavement,suffering and mass murder of other sentient beings,and our government has that same exact mentality toward us. Our government is just a reflection of us. I think Pythagoras said it best when he said “For as long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.” Go vegan and stop the insanity.
Robert Hansard (3 года назад)
A Psychology Today article says children who kill animals is a sign of sociopathic behavior and F.B.I profilers Alan Brantly and Robert Ressler believed children who kill animals is actually a rehearsal for killing human victims. So my question is why isn`t it sociopathic behavior when adults kill animals?  Does something magically happen where it becomes normal to kill animals once children become adults?

Well, ostensibly, the purpose of hunting is for trophies, sport and meat. You could argue that hunting is a form of assholish behavior because it's not necessary to hunt for one's food anymore, but while the motives for hunting do indicate the possession of a callous attitude towards other living creatures, they don't indicate a pathological preoccupation with violence...for many men it's probably the male bonding and the beer and the excitement of the hunt or whatever that they really enjoy, not necessarily the actual killing. In the case of a child repeatedly killing animals however, there really is no discernible motive for doing so other than a fascination with murder.

+No nations, no flags, one earth. We come in this world like blank pieces of paper but in the beginning our true nature is basically very loving and caring.I think in our early years we are more in tune with the oneness of everything but even before indoctrination camp starts our parents are so eager to teach us the bullshit that was programmed into them and if the kid is slow to learn all the bullshit programmings we force on them we think there`s something wrong with the kid......It reminds me of a Carl Jung quote "If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves"

Robert Hansard (2 года назад)
+No nations, no flags, one earth. It`s true that enjoying the act of killing would be psychotic but paying others to kill for you is also bad and the fact that collectively humans are killing more animals a year then there are people in the whole world just to feed off their flesh is insanity.It only appears to be normal cause everyone does it.It reminds me of a quote by Tolle "By far the greater part of violence that humans have inflicted on others is not the work of criminals or the mentally deranged, but of normal, respectable citizens.One can go so far as to say that on this planet ;normal equals insane"
No gods, no masters! (2 года назад)
+Robert Hansard In theory, it isn't the act of killing that is the issue, it's the emotions or lack off that one feels in doing so. If one kills for pleasure, than he is most likely a psychopath... Even though killing is a fundamental part of life, we as conscious creatures simply can't allow ourselves to enjoy such a thing.
Denise Ward (3 года назад)
I like modern art and music. I feel it is a reflexion of our deranged world. The antidote to psychopathy is openness. Secrecy is their sanctuary. We have to live in a world of openness, no public secrets. Notice practically everyone in power is a member of a secret society?  And notice too that overwhelmingly they are male?  What does this say about gender?  There is a difference but many refuse to acknowledge the difference and hence we install males mostly to tell us what to do, and males are more violent than females by many degrees. However we want an equal society but right now the men hold the power and if they want to smash us all to kingdom come then our refusal to recognize the dominance of those in power as being mostly male, could cost us our existence. Nonetheless, psychopaths, male or female need to have their faces known to everyone, and their names and their addresses so that they can be quarantined. They will still have every freedom, but decent people will know to keep them out of their lives. If they have remorse, they should be able to return to society in increments that are earned. Right now it's the other-way-around, the psychopaths surveil us and jail us.But we don't want jails anymore, they are not a good idea, very Middle Ages. The number one way to tell a psychopath?  if they espouse harm, especially if they recommend that anyone should be shot or killed or caged. The human race needs to come to maturity and deal with everyone. We have to live with the psychopaths but we should know who they are. They will tell us who they are when they suggest that others should be harmed.

+Denise Ward You're right the current system is often grossly inefficient and inhumane.  However, you paint every individual that exists in the prison system or any other system (government) as if they are not trying to help the world.  I think you're a bit too negative about that process.  There are individuals that are trying to help in the current system in all walks of life.  Psychopaths don't heal.  They are that way from a very young age, and do not change in their operational methods for any reason.  That lack of emotion is who they are, period.  They have a permanent mental road map, that will never be changed.  Psychopaths are manipulative individuals who don't care about the people they use.  Any amount of rehab will not change that.  There are vastly more psychopaths outside of prison than there are in prison.  Those are the psychopaths that were smart enough to know how to manipulate people without going to jail for it.  Those types are masters at blending in. You seem to think that the thing wrong with society is the people who rule humanity through the government.  What is actually wrong, is humans are not perfect moral agents.  No matter where you go on earth, you will find corruption and imperfection morally.  Its a world wide epidemic.  You are very Utopian, and that utopia will likely never exist until something major changes the moral capabilities of mankind itself.  Your assumption seems to be that humans are perfect moral agents, in the right environment.  I admire your faith, but faith in an imperfect moral agent and in an imperfect world is bound to be a let down.  Have faith in God, the perfect moral agent who sent his perfect son to be the way to moral perfection.  All else is sinking sand and will not satisfy the soul.

+A Kay I appreciate the question though the answer is not a simple one because the way we have been doing things from start to finish only begets criminals. Our mere existence is dependent on money - that for starters causes untold amounts of stress and anxiety. We need to structure our entire system differently. There are many answers, it's really not rocket science. One of them is providing a guaranteed minimum income that reflects a decent standard of living. That would leave everyone free then to do the work they love. Or do nothing if they so choose. How bad can that be? When we accept what we have today, wars, incarceration of people who smoke plants, child trafficking, debt, looting of human organs, environmental assault, contamination of water, and on and on. it is a problem how to deal with psychopaths but it is a bigger problem to have jails because what happens is the real psychopaths (that decide wars that kill thousands to millions of people) will be running things and jailing people for the slightest misdemeanor, you know, like we have now. I would love a discourse on this and see what others think...the most ideal way to have it IMO is for society to live in a totally open way about the things that affect public affairs but where private information is kept sacred or something of that level. Open up all the classified information! Open up all the patents! Everyone out in the open that belongs to the public. Once we have this agreement for openness, we inform each other of those who have caused harm so that everyone knows about them. The people in their work know, the people at their kids schools, the neighborhood, everyone. And they are ostracized from society. But not in a mean way. To give them the chance to reform. If we truly want a world of peace, then we humans have to treat life in a much more beautiful manner. Humans are beautiful too if we only had the chance to be ourselves. But look at the way we treat each other. We even go and fight other humans for no reason, or because someone said it's heroic. We have been shaped by a truly sick society and so we are the ones responsible for those that go off the rails. We're even responsible for the ones who hand out the orders because we do what they say.  So as the psychopath or sociopath has to live in isolation from the community and everyone he/she knows, this is the greatest deterrent. And they have to come to the community when they have something to offer about their reform. Maybe they decide to build a shed for his elderly next door neighbor and she's thrilled. Maybe he works on the land growing food or offer accommodation for a homeless person or whatever. She/he goes to the community to ask for consideration and offers to do something else in the near future to atone. This makes the community see the improvement for their own satisfaction. There doesn't need to be a jury or anything just the neighbors deciding online. We have the internet now, we don't need government or big corporations at all. We have 3D printers and other fabulous technologies. The world is changing and we've got to go with it. We need to rethink everything and this idea of caging or executing a human, one of our own kind, is barbaric and medieval in the extreme.   The sociopath/psychopath should be given every opportunity to heal. They should be provided by trained and untrained people to help them heal their dysfunction. Because a species that kills its own species is truly "out-there" dysfunctional We may think this is utopia and tend to brush it out of your mind, but we are capable of living like this. We don't need to be like little rodents each one trying to get over every other. This is not the way life was meant to be. We can have it so much better, but we have to at least imagine it. We can be much safer if we didn't have jails because then as a community we would need to be more connected to each other. We pay a huge price for living lives of isolation. We're human for crying out loud! We should be having fiestas every day or at least doing the most incredible work that fills our hearts with absolute jubilation. Not the bland, blood sucking jobs most people do today. Some like their jobs but do they like going through the gridlock of traffic for hours every week? Or filling out tax forms and other bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo. We're not here to do that! We are geniuses every one of us. We shouldn't be locking each other up in jails or trying to get one over our brothers and sisters. We are here to create magic. I believe we have the power of something like a god. Not that I believe in god, but I believe in people. In you. At any moment in time, each one of us has the power to change our minds with a perspective that totally transforms us. Just having a new perspective is like skiing from the highest mountains. It's exhilarating. No wonder people commit crimes. No wonder most of the population is on some kind of anti-depressant or sleep tablet. Look what we do to our children. Even if one was starving we should be ashamed but the numbers of them are staggering. We swill and go to malls while we bomb our brothers and sisters in distant lands. And what other strategies have we tried first? I'm getting a bit tired of the Average Person in the human race because we expect all these things yet we treat animals and each other like rags. Animals especially. Those who are less intelligent than us we treat like we do. We take advantage of them at every turn. They haven't got a hope. Everyday it's a holocaust for them. We shouldn't expect any mercy when something happens to us because we have no mercy on the lesser creatures we share this beautiful planet with. The Average Person doesn't want to see that their government assaulted this nation, it's own people, on 9/11 but people don't want to see. These are the people who still rule over us now. These are the people who the Average Person looks to before setting out to do anything or speak any words. The people who assaulted this nation and made off like bandits. And we've lost almost every avenue of freedom. No jails have never solved a thing. So shouldn't we at least experiment with something else? We don't have to do it everywhere, let's try it somewhere and see how it goes. These are the discussions we should be conversing about with each other. What kind of a world would we love to live in, not just like. Why not? Nothing is achieved without first the dream. Poo-poohing things because of fixed ideas is not going to help us advance.

With the psychopaths who actually get caught doing things like robbery, murder, rape, pedophilia, genocide etc? Rehabilitate them, try to understand them, give them love and therapy and then hope they don't go and re offend when released into society?? Sounds pretty dumb. No offense. Jails exist for a reason. I think you are in denial of the obvious immorality that exists within the human race, and has always existed!

There have been civilisations/cultures where they had no kings but these are in the minority.  What psychopaths have done is create the idea that the rest of us need kings to lead us. People have to be educated to take more responsibility for themselves and their families and communities.  The present system favours delegation of that responsibility to power-hungry psychopathic and proto-psychopathic government officials and white-collar gangsters.  As psychopaths control education and political systems this awakening and taking back of personal responsibility isn't going to happen.  I cannot see mankind shaking off these parasites, they will kill the host and then die off from lack of supply.  Cancer kills when there is nothing to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.

+Sam Black take a look at some pictures of cities at night. specifically india and then most others. then look up bactieria and virus growth. the base est definition of cancer is unregulated growth of out of control of cells. then think of all the pollution and all of the other species humans have wiped out. as a whole our species has basicailly become a cancer to the planet we live on. its very sad indeed because humans totally have the capibility to live in simbiosis with earth but evil tricks by those in power have taken thier toll. one of the main ones is produce a bunch of kids - so they have more slaves-units of energy-puppets-subjects-folks to use and exploit - pick one. exactly like greedy nasty truly EVIL vampires who could never have enough thralls.

+SONO ARIMA Indeed, society is a byproduct of power hungry psychopaths creating an authoritarian structures in which they can control masses trough religion and political doctrines. Pretty much all the ''great'' leaders of human history were a bunch of power hungry psychos and wanna be demi-gods(Emperors, Prophets, Pharaohs, Popes...).

Grand Strategy in the Age of Mass Destruction The Psychopath Under the Bed - PART TWO With disdain I will throw my gauntlet Full in the face of the world, And see the collapse of this pygmy giant Whose fall will not stifle my ardour. Then will I walk godlike and victorious Through the ruins of the world And giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.                - Karl Marx This past week ABC News broke the story that hackers connected to the Russian government are suspected of inserting malware in computers that control American power plants and water treatment systems. This malware is capable of crippling U.S. utilities. Such a monstrous act of sabotage would not only be an act of war, it would be a monstrous crime; for the victims would be average people, targeted merely for their nationality. Why would the Russian government do such a thing? For those who have studied the character of the Russian government, the answer is simple. This sort of action is what the Russian government does; for Russia is governed by a system with no effective checks or balances, where power is concentrated in a few hands. And wherever such a concentration of power exists, there you shall find great crimes and great criminals – that is to say, psychopaths.   Burckhardt once wrote that “power is evil,” and Lord Acton warned that “power corrupts.” The Framers of the U.S. Constitution believed that only a system of checks and balances can prevent the worst from happening. From historical experience, we know that this is the only kind of system that produces good results. These results are not perfect, but they are the best that men have devised, and they are the best that can – in practice – be devised for safeguarding life and property. When you do not have a system of working checks and balances, life and property are not safe. This is the character of the Russian government, and will be the character of the United States government if our system of checks and balances continues to break down. In 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed, a proper system of checks and balances was never set up. Power remained concentrated in a few hands. The government was not really accountable to anyone. Despite this underlying reality, everything was arranged so that it all appeared to be moving in the direction of democratic capitalism and proper checks and balances, but nothing of the kind ever happened. The objective of making the changes in the first place was to fool the West. This conclusion, by the way, is not my own. It is the conclusion of Yevgenia Albats, the famous Russian journalist. From first to last, the old gang was still there and everything was organized for the advantage of the Central Committee's chosen instruments (e.g., certain KGB officers and “former” apparatchiks). The problem of today’s Russia goes back to 1917, when the country was taken over by gangsters who called themselves “communists.” We must not be naïve about the idealistic terms the Russian communists used to describe their “mission.” They murdered, they stole, and they oppressed the Russian people, and the Ukrainian people, and the people of Central Asia and the Caucasus, etc. The communists made themselves into a new ruling class under Stalin and his successors. As such, the system was an enormous criminal enterprise in which tens of millions of innocent people were killed. End Excerpt

I view psychopathy as a natural adaptation of for survivalism- but only for when uninhibited by a better judgement.  If Steve is hungry, he might want to cannabalize you… but his intelligence (if existent) should hopefully deter him from such an extreme apathetic tangent.  Culture- and people resultantly- are adapting these survivalist traits and sometimes I bet they go a little too far.

Overkill bullshit. Not "every politician" is a psychopath, not even half of them. That would be overestimating the true problem, as the system would end up automatically disposing of itself. You'll have to understand that certain key characters (who are many) possess psychopathic traits, bending a lot of others under their will. With a charismatic, fearless leader figure rising, it's easy for people to end up following their path without knowing their true intensions. Good examples of psychopathic politicians would be, in my opinion, Silvio Berlusconi, Lyndon B. Johnson or Tony Blair. Bill Clinton seems rather psychopathic as well, although I like him way more than the other names, as he's actually done more good for the society as a president and a political figure than the other names, including the many non-psychopathic leaders. I guess it has to do with his personal pride as well as the passion for politics.

Vertstappen's video and book caused me to start studying psychopaths, particularly regarding those in power. He's dead on. What's interesting is that people need to take psychological tests to get into the military, police, and many of the bureaucracies, but not to get into politics. It seems to me that if the minions need to be tested to weed out the worst mental cases, then this should be even more true for the politicians, generals, and senior bureaucrats. Sure some will still get through, no test is perfect and psychopaths are experts at hiding what they are, but as soon as they reveal themselves they should be removed from office. If humanity doesn't start keeping psychopaths away from power then this cycle of misery will continue.

I'm well aware that most psychopaths are not serial killers, and those are not the the people I'm concerned about. On the other hand, the politicians, corporate executives, and religious leaders are definitely worth being concerned about, as they have significantly more power to do harm.

It's a lot more complex than: Psychopathic Brain - No empathy Average Brain - Empathy Did you know that extreme sports enthusiasts are psychopaths?

Did you know that just 5% of psychopathic men are serial killers?

How do you prove a person is a psychopath to even be able to isolate them without a test? While I agree that psychopaths will do everything possible to get out of tests, if enough people call them out on their reluctance to undergo these tests then that will corner them into having to take the test. I'm all for doing brain scans on all political candidates. The thought that the psychopaths in charge would be able to bribe & eliminate those trying to test them is ridiculous. They're outnumbered.

2. ....and then compare what that supposed 'satire' set out with what we have today. It's shocking now all is abundantly clear that they have carried out what was recommended in that report in order to gain global control of the population. Was written in 1970, before the advent of 'world pollution' - it's not 'the people' who make the ghastly problems, just the psychopaths at the top of the pyramid. Big challenge though how to get rid of them. Best wishes!

Also read about that report on wikipedia ...and then compare (will continue in another reply... 2.)

He is probably pointing to the sort of faceless dehumanization which may be lurking within modern artforms. The roboticsism of the mind. It's the same way that atheism is being used as way for these powers to gain entry. They need the host to deny truth in order to permit their control. Unfortunately, religions such as Islam and Christianity believe in a sort of truth, -moral, spiritual, and physical, -that is a roadblock. That's not to say that atheism itself is bad; just how it's being used.
