Since study has shown that the 1% have significantly more sociopathic tendencies than the general population, please do not think that appealing to their heart will accomplish change. :)

Truer words have never been said.

What's your point? How do you think they got there without being a little nicer than you?

Here's an exchange I had with beautifulworld in http://occupywallst.org/forum/children-dumped-in-streets-by-greek-parents-who-ca/ :

One cannot preach love to the loveless, or appeal to the heart and conscience of those who have neither.

Lloyd Bankfein would do no more than giggle over these families.

Here's a post I wrote, if interested, http://occupywallst.org/forum/from-a-recent-comment-how-profoundly-sad-cant-we-s/ (I don't know why I didn't mention it here before), regarding psychopaths.

Yes. I saw your post. I'm still thinking about it. Don't know how to respond to it. On the one hand, I think you are right. Then on the other hand, I can't give up hope that maybe we can reach these people, these humans?

"Do we walk shoulder to shoulder with mimics who share no fellow human feeling, no empathy, no conscience?" ( http://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/past-notes/ ). Yes we do and they cannot be reached human to human.

I was just talking to GypsyKing about this. Why are people so cold? Why are they so materialistic? I know you think they are sociopaths. But, why? Do you think it relates back to a lack of unconditional love in early childhood. I do. I think that is where lack of empathy and compassion has its roots. Your blog is interesting, btw.

"Do you think it relates back to a lack of unconditional love in early childhood. I do. I think that is where lack of empathy and compassion has its roots." I agree to the extent that these childhood experiences create sociopath-like behavior.

But "[w]hen one considers all the seemingly conscienceless and subtracts the attachment disordered, the narcissistically rigid, and the hideously abused and needy, there is still a core of the emotionally/morally colorblind . . ." (see source above). These are the true sociopaths, the others, faux sociopaths.

The true sociopaths act according to their nature.

Yeah. I can see what you're saying. I've known people like this. So, you're saying identify them and remove them. I don't know that that will ever be possible in our society. How can you identify people as sociopath who probably wouldn't even go to a doctor?

I cannot agree with such a GENERALIZATION.

See how former Canadian Prime Minister and billionaire businessman Paul Martin has come out In Favour Of Occupy Wall Street and even "Wealth Redistribution". Many others will come to see the light, hopefully ASAP!

Love to see the study regarding the 1% and "sociopathic tendencies". Really. Blow me away!
