Forum Post: Corporate Psychopaths

When Mitt Romney says corporations are people we should listen very closely to everything he's said and will say.

Bad Bosses

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/01/19/business/psychopath-boss/index.html

The "corporate psychopath" may bring to mind the character of someone you have encountered in your career who may have seemed at first supportive and then strangely antagonistic. In the real working world executives who display psychopathic tendencies are often charismatic charmers on first meeting, emoting confidence that is rooted in deception, psychologists say.

They lie without remorse, steal credit for accomplishments and are adroit at transferring blame for their mistakes, psychologists said. Psychopaths are more likely to have shallow, short-term sexual relationships -- often in the workplace -- and are easily bored. They are prone to take risks without concern for the ramifications.

Psychopaths are gifted at finding the weakness and insecurities of colleagues, yet that can be dressed as "constructive criticism." Psychopaths always turn on the charm to those in power within their corporation -- and equally turn on the malice to colleagues or subordinates -- but isn't that just "managing up"? "They can't get any one thing done because they're prone to boredom, but that can be easily called 'multitasking,'" Babiak said.

One advantage psychopaths have is they are not swimming in the sea of emotions that color and guide most of our decision-making. "Psychopaths are great bullies," said Boddy, author of the book, "Corporate Psychopaths: Organizational Destroyers." "They are cunning and manipulative, and great at engineering situations. Although they don't have emotions themselves, they can create emotional situations," Boddy said. "The rest of us don't even realize we're being manipulated until it's too late."

Brain scans of psychopaths show areas of the brain that govern emotion in psychopaths aren't as active as a normal adult's. Show them words freighted with emotional meaning -- such as a "rape," "blood" or "knife" -- and their brain activity shows the same reaction if shown "tree" or "rock."

I do believe psychological profiling of candidates for governmental puppet positions is a major priority of the global elite. I think that they have it down to a science, that is, the process of identifying psychopaths and putting them in positions of power.

I believe they brain wash people into being psychopaths as well, from a very early age, and that these people function practically like programmable computers, making ideal political candidates.

The office was definitely not a position to be turned into an object of world ridicule. The Republicans have been leading the charge to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over all requested documents for operation Fast and Furious and Republicans are stonewalling, or opposing every critical piece of legislation proposed by the Democrats.

Leading Republicans in Congress have prioritized allegiance to a Republican president (past and future) above all other governmental and constitutional concerns. But there was a time when U.S. lawmakers, regardless of party affiliation, actually voted the way of their conscience. There was a time when a president could not break the law or ignore a summons from Congress with impunity. Indeed, by the height of Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, a number of congressmen — including Republicans staunchly loyal to their party — acted to uphold the law and make Nixon accountable.

To Impeach a President http://www.salon.com/2007/11/26/gop74/ [right click]

In 2007, the main concern of lawmakers seems to be the preservation of power and the entitlements that come with it. Republican allies of the White House have blocked congressional investigations into the Bush administration’s alleged misdeeds, including illegal spying on Americans’ phone calls. In 2006, the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thwarted an investigation into warrantless eavesdropping by the National Security Agency. While serving as chairman of the Judiciary Committee prior to the Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006, Arlen Specter, R-Pa., though a vocal critic of the spying, failed to initiate any investigations into Bush’s wiretapping program, despite ample evidence that it violated the existing FISA laws. Meanwhile, top Democrats, including Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia and Dianne Feinstein of California, have shown a willingness to cave into Bush’s demands, including retroactive immunity for American telecom companies that assisted the government’s spying. The Bush era has drawn various comparisons with the Nixon era, but what seems forgotten from that time is the courage exhibited by a handful of lawmakers, once fiercely loyal to the president, who ultimately decided to impeach him. In recent interviews with Salon, some of those former congressmen spoke about their reasons for risking their political career and taking a principled stand, the kind that seems so unlikely on Capitol Hill today.

Where were the checks and balances when GW Bush was President? Can our government be manipulated by hypnotic suggestion, mind control over key members in the House, Senate and SCOTUS?

Once it’s started how is it stopped?

It started with Reagan, firing the air traffic controllers, sent air safety into a tailspin, and sounded the bell that it was open season on unions, then he proceeded to run up debt, it was his plan to push the entire federal budget into paying interest so there would be nothing left to do anything with and the bond holders would own the very country, Clinton was going to mess that up with his tax/spending plan of 1993, which passed without a single Republican vote showing you how far gone they were already, by 2001 there was a real threat that we pay off the debt:

http://occupywallst.org/forum/bush-tax-cut-deficit/

But Bush put us back on the GOP path and we are full steam ahead giving the country over to the 1%, I say impose a 99% inheritance tax till the debt is paid and make them pay the debt their boys ran up, that seems fair to me, we didn't get trickled on by that trickle down bullshit, it all stay at the top, let them pay for the debt that made them rich.

[-] 2 points by JackHall (441) 2 years ago

You'd have to understand how the struggle between Republicans and Democrats has been going on for over 100 years. Republicans introduced term limits after Roosevelt's Grand Slam from 1932 through 1944. Eisenhower began to turn back the clock on Roosevelt's Good Neighbor Policy towards Latin America. Jack Kennedy stopped Nixon for awhile, etc.

You believe these things because you are an idiot.

Think about it for a sec. Why would the "Elite" (people you can't even name), want to have psychopaths doing their bidding. Psychopaths are unpredictable, really not the type of people you want doing your slave labor. It's much better to have a simple minded sane person who you could brainwash with ease.

Now arturo, I want you to do something for me. Check your neck, check your hips, check for tech that con trolls your lips. I have a feeling your actions are being guided by Renneye's remote control. She stole Svali's microchip and hide it somewhere in your body. When the Chinese dictator finishes squeezing your balls, check between them... who knows.

There are high level psychopaths called SAPs, socially adept sociopaths. In addition some are extremely talented at figuring out their place in the food chain, and then holding their wishes/appetites in check to maintain their place or climb that chain.

There was an attempted Fascist Coupe vs Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s. It failed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC6U5T01mLs [right click]

Roosevelt’s legacy withstood the fascist encroachment into government for several decades. I think Reagan was the spoiler. If anyone is familiar with some of the details of the first failed fascist coupe attempt they could recognize the Reagan Presidency represents a fascist triumph that has achieved what was impossible when Roosevelt was in the Whitehouse a generation or 2 earlier. Under GHW Bush, ex-CIA director and now Vice-President the unraveling of Roosevelt’s social reforms, the undoing of the New Deal began.

With Ronald Reagan the decoy maintaining the folksy image of a caring administration, the assault on what American dream was left was orchestrated by the secret Secretary of General Affairs, aka the Vice President.

Now call this a corporatocracy as unions, organized labor, ordinary citizens wither under government and media neglect, while banks and corporation become beneficiaries of corporate welfare without any obligation to irrigate their communities. Elected Democrats in the highest office have dropped the New Deal banner in an effort to form a government based on bipartisan cooperation. One should expect a lot more from Ivy League-grounded public servants. There are not enough new ideas to help ordinary citizens being generated.

I like Carlin, he understands these politicians are simply puppets for the real owners.

As far as history that is 100 years old, it rewrites itself so many times I dont buy much of what they say. I can tell you the bankers were thrilled when they learned that he was going to start taking over 6% of everyone's income, with the promise to pay back later. And another 6% from all the businesses.

Im sure they liked his "Good Neighbor Policy" with latin America -another piece of legislation that is the exact opposite of what it is (think Patriot Act).

[-] 2 points by JackHall (441) 2 years ago

Contrary to popular opinion, the Good Neighbor Policy resulted in the removal of U.S. Marines from Haiti and Nicaragua in 1934, the annulment of the Platt Amendment, and the negotiation of compensation for Mexico's nationalization of foreign aid in the oil industry in 1938. The policy's cultural impact included the initiation of the radio program Viva America and the 1942 Walt Disney film Saludos Amigos. By the end of World War II, Latin America was, according to one historian, the region of the world most supportive of American foreign policy.

The Platt Amendment of 1903 was an amendment to a joint resolution of the United States Congress, replacing the earlier Teller Amendment. It stipulated the conditions for the withdrawal of United States troops remaining in Cuba at the end of the Spanish-American War and defined the terms of Cuban-U.S. relations until the 1934 Treaty of Relations. The Amendment ensured U.S. involvement in Cuban affairs and gave legal standing (in U.S. law) to U.S. claims to certain territories on the island including Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.

Isn't this brainwashing?

Wikipedia -

Mind control (also known as brainwashing, coercive persuasion, mind abuse, menticide, thought control, or thought reform) refers to a process in which a group or individual "systematically uses unethically manipulative methods to persuade others to conform to the wishes of the manipulator(s), often to the detriment of the person being manipulated". The term has been applied to any tactic, psychological or otherwise, which can be seen as subverting an individual's sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making. In Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes, Jacques Ellul maintains that the "principal aims of these psychological methods is to destroy a man's habitual patterns, space, hours, milieu, and so on."

Theories of brainwashing and of mind control were originally developed to explain how totalitarian regimes appeared to succeed in systematically indoctrinating prisoners of war through propaganda and torture techniques. These theories were later expanded and modified to explain a wider range of phenomena, especially conversions to new religious movements (NRMs).

A "Manchurian" President could be brainwashed before or after he has been elected. Think of "Manchurian" politicians in the Congress and Justices on the Supreme Court cooking the Constitution. They are in the public eye briefly once in a blue moon.Who's going to know?

Hi JackHall,

Thank you for good post.

Corporations are a mechanism for really rotten people to get in control, and are a magnet for them. Have worked around some of these CEO types. They can "talk the spots off a leopard", and cause great damage.

Yes, there should be screening for psychopaths.

This is a serious and important possibility to consider, I was watching the Science CH “Through the Wormhole”, one of the things we are learning is that there have been genetic changes in humans within the last 10,000 years or so more recent and more active than previously thought. Psychopathology is a genetic condition that appears in about 4% of the population:

True, "the rest of us don't even realize we're being manipulated" by these psychopaths, so support a new constitution to sideline them, as follows:

We the peoples, in order to secure Freedom and Justice for All, do enact this Constitution for Strategic International Systems LLC (or SIS LLC) as summarized in the following Business Operations Forecast:

The customer value mission of SIS LLC is (1) to organize all customer-investors into 3,000 investment squad sites of 16 friends (or virtual specialties), and related internet investment legislatures of 50,000 friends (or virtual towns), requiring (2) a $20 weekly capital contribution for 1 year (or $1,000) to (3) create your investment club bank of 50,000 friends (or physical town) -- that is, having $50 million in initial assets -- which (4) due to the operation of today’s fractional banking system becomes (5) $500 million in new annual business loans (or $10,000 in new annual individual loans) from yourself as a new bank officer to yourself as a new business officer who (6) takes 75% employee business control as business officer-investors and 25% customer business control as bank officer-investors of (7) your specific 12 businesses (or investments) in your new bank investment account wherein (8) your investor voting power equals (9) your 1 of 12 levels of experience in (10) your 1 of 12 sectors in 1 of 50 industries in 1 of 200 occupations in 1 of 3,000 specialities which (11) votes-upon your purchasing (or investment) orders as (12) proposed by your employee-elected chain of command.

This means you will have 75% employee business control over your workplace as business officers and, as bank officers, 25% customer business control over all 12 investments (or businesses) in your new bank investment account. In turn, with this 100% town-level business control of your 3,000 workplaces, you can decrease your 12 customer consumption expenses by 75% for services, vehicles, education, retail, food, construction, technology, manufacturing, wholesale, health, justice, and banking expenses; that is, over your first 12 years of SIS LLC membership using a 75% more effective and efficient town design, and related 3,000 workplace designs (herein). Furthermore, while creating your new town & workplace design as described by this constitution, you will replace today’s communist big businesses, and related big governments, with your new small investment club banks, and related small businesses (or investments), as proposed, financed, and patronized by your 3,000 investment squad sites of 16 friends (or virtual specialties) in your internet investment legislature of 50,000 friends (or virtual town).

Why? First, because today’s executive business income (mostly from bank or financial asset income) is 33% of all income which is a huge amount of upper 1% income to split among yourselves as new bank officers having 25% customer business control, right? Second, because today’s executive business wealth is 42% of all wealth which is a huge amount of upper 1% wealth to split among yourselves as new business officers having 75% employee business control; that is, only after becoming new bank officers (above) first, right?

For example, this means if you earn $12/hour today, then you will earn $36/hour tomorrow after adding (1) your old wage income, plus (2) your 33% (more and new) interest income as a new bank officer, plus (3) your 42% (more and new) dividend & gain income as a new business officer. Together, these 4 sources of wealth & income from your specific 12 businesses (or investments) will double your net worth every 6-12 years (until retirement); that is, from the compound interest decline of today's upper 1% executives whom you will replace as the new bank & business investor-officers. So, with this power, let’s end today’s communist big businesses, and related big governments, okay? How? By helping to operate your own Business Operations Forecast (above) at http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/StrategicInternationalSystems/ ; so help us help you, today!

Kleptocracy, alternatively cleptocracy or kleptarchy, (from Greek: κλέπτης - kleptēs, "thief"[1] and κράτος - kratos, "power, rule",[2] hence "rule by thieves") is a form of political and government corruption where the government exists to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population, often without pretense of honest service.
