Psychopats in Wall Street

Somehow this writing got lost within my draft folder! Now I think is more important than ever to continue talking about the economic situation in our world. When we hear of children being kidnaped in Africa and governments unable to control the ever increasing violence, it is of paramount importance that we become active and participate in these affairs. So I am disinterring this article.

For a long time I have been writing in this blog how important is physics (reality) on the economy trying to balance the important of psyche as the Psychonomic society gas done for many years but in a recent article David Sirota has stressed the fact that today it is the psychological state of those running our economy that is defining the direction of our society. In fact Sirota is calling these leaders "psychopats" in his article in The Oregonian (Monday October 10, 2011)  Oregon live Oct. 10, 2011 starts by saying:
"Like most people living through this jarring age of economic turbulence and political dysfunction, you can probably recall a moment in the last few months when you thought to yourself that our lawmakers and corporate leaders are all crazy.
And not just run-of-the-mill crazy, a la George Costanza's parents, but the kind of crazy that makes films like "Silence of the Lambs" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" so frightening."
It is a wonderful article, I highly recommend it!

In future posts I will talk about the unbalanced minds of kids born with a silver spoon in their mouth and that grew up in an environment that is dis-equilibrated and do not learn the value of other human beings. Like in the legal case where a young man's defense used the "Affluenza" mitigator to relieve him from his guild on killing another person when this young man was DUI (

Is there a limit on what rich people can do?

  1. Another great blog post! I like that article from The Oregonian. I wish The Oregonian would print articles like that more often. I'm looking forward to your posts about kids born with a silver spoon in their mouth. I had a roommate that was a trust fund kid (he wouldn't call himself that) and it was really difficult to talk to him about the value of people that weren't like himself. It seemed like he had mental blocks and he couldn't recognize his prejudices.
