Would you agree that there are growing number of sociopaths/psychopaths in power, or that psychopathy can spread and be the ultimate dehumanization of the population?
Are you crazy? They're everywhere! But perhaps I'm merely paranoid!
The percentage of sociopaths hasn't changed much as far as a percentage. However the percentage of sociopaths that have reached positions within corporations has increased disproportionately to their overall percentage in the population. This I believe that corporations themselves are sociopathic in nature and reward those with no feelings and no guilt.
I wouldn't go that far. But I do notice that a lot less people these days seem to be able to feel empathy and put themselves in another's shoes.
Well for a minute I thought I was crazy because it seems that they are everywhere, but since you confirmed it maybe I'm not so crazy after all, jk.
Seriously though, I do think it is a growing problem and that it can only be solved if everyone were to take a conscious note of the behaviors associated with sociopathy so that they can ensure that their behavior does not fall within the sociopathy limits.
There is a independent movie made on this subject of corporate sociopaths, it is called fish head and available for free viewing on vimeo. You might find it interesting.
Frankly I don't know who is the bigger problem sociopaths are those who are trying to fix them such as to psychologists. An individual caught after horrendously, brutally, torturing strangers they happen to encounter the psychologists would empathize with these murderous killers-("I feel your pain after having your teddy bear snatched from you as a child.") These sociopaths begins to receive all the attention while their victims are all but forgotten.
I have seen a number of prison documentaries and when the interviewer addressed these psychotics, sociopaths they are not looking to be cured, a wolf cannot be turned into a sheep. The idea that we can fix anything and everyone is ridiculous as it would seem because of our arrogance the public is at risk.
No. And I can't even think of reputable researcher who is suggesting this. Personality types tend to occur in pretty stable proportions in relation to the entire population.

What makes some people totally amoral and the essence of pure evil without possessingany iota of conscience, a sense of humaneness, nor remorse, even rejoicing in their evilness?

Do people even know what the word psychopath means?I see this word tossed around often around here (3 times in the forums in 10 minutes for starters), often in the wrong way. So do people even know what the word means? Or is this the common term for anyone who does something bad now?
