“Insanity in individuals is something rare – but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.”
Next time you call someone “Psychopath!”, chances are you may be correct.
Science has proven that 2 out of every 100 people in any given society are callous, selfish, dishonest, arrogant, aggressive, irresponsible, impulsive, hedonistic, and are unable to feel empathy or remorse.
Really? Only 2 in every hundred?
I know. Feels like more. Especially near election time.
In any case, these people are, quite literally, psychopaths.
According to io9 Neuroscience, 3 to 6 million psychopaths live among us in the U.S. alone – with 3 to 5 percent of this portion found in the highest corporate and government sectors.
