What Orcs Are, What America Is

They do not process emotions the way the rest of us, the normal 96%; do, because they have no conscience. It's just hereditarily missing. Instead of feeling emotions, they calculate them. And they know it. They pity those of us who are hindered in our actions by the consideration of others. And then they manipulate us.

It's difficult for most of us to even conceive of such a person. Nancy Pelosi, for example, seems to be unable to understand that the president of her country feels no regard for others. He has no conscience. If you live or die, to him it just does not matter. He doesn't have that capability.

"According to Hare, the key emotional and interpersonal traits defining the psychopathic personality syndrome are: a smooth, glib capability to lie, manipulate and dissemble; a completely callous lack of empathy or concern for others; shallow emotional affect and lack of remorse; and egocentric grandiosity."

Said Bush to the entire country in a speech:

But all in all, it's been a fabulous year for Laura and me. We're so grateful to be living in this compound and I'm grateful to be working in this office. It's a joy to walk in here every morning, realizing that I'm the President of the greatest country on the face of the Earth.


That's what our monkey-in-a-man-suit President said years ago.

The Towers fell, the Pentagon was attacked, but George and Laura had a "fabulous year."

No, you don't count. You are nothing. A hindrance, maybe, if you have concerns about neoconservative political policies as I do.

He's a psychopath. He has no conscience. He's psychologically deformed and in many other scenarios he would be permantly imprisoned. But neoconservative Republicans like this kind of thing. They are sicker than Bush himself. He's their man.

They represent sociopathological corporations. Not people. Just monstrous *things.* Beowulfs. Satan. The bad guys in The Lord Of The Rings. Assholes. Fuckheads. They are Mordor. Babylon. The cold-war Soviets. The Fascists. The Nazis.

We the people, however, have great advantages over this sort. We are sane. And we need to stay that way and act that way. We must vote that way. The Founders intended this. That was their dream. That is what they were thinking when they conceived America.

A sane country.

Can you believe that?

I know what you mean. There are psychopaths everywhere, especially in our governments. There is no doubt that Bush is the psychopath, but he's not the only one. There's a study of evil within politics called ponerology:

Oh, if you want to find out if one is a psychopath where you meet him, try yawning. Yawning is an empathy, and psychopath lacked it. See how yawning seen as a test:

Great blog. I love how you compared psychopath to orcs from Lords of the Rings. =)

Great Blog!!

I have recently read Robert Hare's book 'Without Conscience'. And it does appear that the majority of our politicians act without conscience. They perpetrate crimes against humanity as opposed to crimes against individuals, as do most of the well known criminal psychopaths.

Hare's estimate of 4-6% seems quite low to me!

Anyway, I am interested in learning more about psychopaths. Thanks Zadius Sky, I will check out this link!

And Thank You Shrimplate for a Great Blog.
