The Age of the Psychopath

The Age of the Psychopath
Bernard Pyron

We live in an age of deception - and we are also in the age of the psychopath.  Though the psychopaths are  a minority in American society they may help shape our culture.  Psychopaths tend to get into positions where they can dominate others.

Look at what a 1978 book, The Psychopath, says about this
personality disorder. In the 1978 book, The Psychopath: A Comprehensive Study of Antisocial
Disorders and Behavior, by William. H. Reid, reports that a study
of psychopathic children found they had a lack of guilt, or lack of
conscience, which is common to psychopaths. They also engaged in
"pathological lying," and they would steal things.

Reid reports that adult psychopaths are manipulators who want to
control others. Psychopaths get
satisfaction from having put something over on other people - by deception.

Two main traits are emphasized, lack of moral conscience and persistent telling of lies.

There are some other traits of psychopaths. They have a desire to dominate others, and often this desire to dominate other people is mixed with a desire to harm others. In other words, psychopaths want to dominate other people in order to do them some harm. Many psychopaths are bullies.

In summary then, the psychopathic personality or character disorder can be defined as

l.The persistent telling of lies,

2.  A significant lack of conscience or sense that one has behaved toward others in a morally wrong way,

3. And the psychopath tends to deceive others, which relates to the persistent telling of lies,

4.  In his or her behavior toward others, the psychopath tries to dominate others,

5. And in dominating  others, the psychopath may try to do harm to others.

Psychopaths violate the rights of others.

Our "Frontier Culture" and our political ideology starts from an emphasis upon the individual, and his or her rights.. Some of this ideology is in the Declaration of Independence, and part of it is in the Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights and separation of powers which is to be used as a check upon any movement which would make the government totalitarian.

The ideas about the absolute rights of the individual came out of Isaiah 10: 1-2, Lamentations 3: 33-36, and Malachi 3: 5, and from the secularization of these absolute rights given by God which was formulated by John Locke and put into the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson.

In opposing the American political ideology which begins with the idea that the rights of the individual come from God, the political psychopath would also be in opposition to  Christian morality.  And Christian morality depends upon a foundation of faith in the Truth of the Gospel of Christ.

"Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18.  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19.  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth."  John 17: 17-19

And so the psychopath as political leader would be more dangerous in times when theologies which do not always stress the Truth in New Testament scripture weaken the spiritual power of the Gospel of Christ to build up Christian morality.

The absolute, or as Jefferson called it, unalienable, rights of the individual, written into the Constitution by James Madison and his House Committee, are under greater threat now than before.

The psychopathic personality as politician is in opposition to the rights of others in society, since the psychopath wants to violate their rights and dominate and even harm them in some way.

And so in his or her opposition to the rights of individuals the psychopath furthers the goals of a totalitarian  ideology, which can be fascist or Communist-Marxist.

In psychopaths there is a trait which has a connection to their persistent telling of lies. This is their getting off on deceiving others. They love to deceive people.

Since Marxism "turns Hegel on his head" in endorsing a form of the dialectic which is atheistic it opposes any absolute morality, which feeds into and builds up the psychopathic personality or character disorder. So, its not surprising that some Leftists can be described as psychopathic, and that some leaders of the Leftists now are psychopaths.

In its lack of common morality, the Marxist form of the dialectic - which is an argument within a dialogue - makes less use of facts and truths and tends toward the telling of lies.

George Orwell in some of his essays wrote about the Denial of Objective Reality in Nazi Germany and In the Marxist ideology of the Soviet Union.  In other words, the government mass media under government control in  Nazi Germany and in Marxist Russia told many lies their people.

But psychiatrists and clinical psychologists stopped using the term psychopath. maybe thinking it was too offensive to this group of people.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) which began in 1952 used Antisocial Personality Disorder to describe a personality and character disorder much the same as that of the old psychopath, and so the term psychopath was not used too much by psychiatrists and clinical psychologists in the last 50 to 60 years.

But an older literature which used the term psychopath still exists.

In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth
Edition (1994) the psychopathic personality disorder is called the
Antisocial Personality Disorder.

In the Diagnostic Manuel Antisocial Personality Disorder is said to
include:

"deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying."

"lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to...having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another."

Much of the work of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists in the older literature was focused on the common psychopath.  But there can be psychopaths who rise to positions of power in society.

"Mattoid" is not a word used by psychologists or psychiatrists.
As far as I know it has been used mostly by populists and patriot
types to describe many members of the financial and corporate ruling elite.

In the nineteenth century the Italian criminologist Cesare Lombroso
coined the term Mattoid. He created Mattoid from the Italian matto,
or insane, plus the ending "oid," from the Greek eidos, or
resemblance. A Mattoid was first of all a person who in some ways
resembled the insane.

Some populists or patriots have used Mattoid to describe more intelligent psychopaths of the ruling elite.

In saying that the mattoid is a super psychopath of greater
intelligence and ability to plan and carry out plans, can apply
abstract principles to specific situations, and can use knowledge of
human nature effectively, I think gives a more specific definition to
the word than that which Cesare Lambroso originally intended.

The age of the political psychopath is also an age of deception. And of age of the psychopath is
a period in which the society disintegrates into opposing factions
by race, gender, socioeconomic status etc, and the time in which the dominant Christian and family based individualist culture is attacked, especially by the Left.
Georg Lukács, an early Transformational Marxist, said that the
Abolishment of Culture was necessary for Transformational Marxism to
take over a nation. The Mafia model is also used, in addition to Marxism, as a tool for attacking the Christian and family-based older culture. The "Leftopath" might also have traits of a Mafia crime boss.

Lyndon B. Johnson might be described as having been a  Psychopath.

See: https://www.psychologytoday.com/…/2015…/psychopath-president

"Banana republic dictators are certainly all successful psychopaths, because they live in lawless, unstructured societies where only the ruthless flourish"....

"You might well think there would be safeguards against psychopaths rising to power in a constitutional democracy such as ours, but you’d be mistaken. Lilienfeld and his coauthors report on a personality analysis of the first 42 presidents, which found that success in the White House was strongly correlated with the traits of the successful psychopath. These traits can also be found among current contenders for the presidency, especially those high in the polls."

Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins, the gospel of our salvation, and repenting, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise.
