20. CRIMINAL VERSATILITY -- not necessarily arrested for them. 

2/1/2 murder, spying, torture, conspiracy to allow criminals to stay on the loose, like Bankers

Here are the scores. 

Obama 22 / Politicians in General 21/Corporate Execs 23

After I wrote it, I did the numbers for George W. Bush in my head. I came up with a 30 score. Try it out on some others, like Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, for example. 

Please add your own analysis and interpretation of the score for each of the items for Obama, Politicians, and Corporate execs. Do you agree or disagree either way?

update: I've been asked why I write about this, and have been told that this paints a pretty dismal prospect for the future. 

I write about this because we need to open our eyes and see who we are dealing with. I don't accept that it takes a psychopath to be a surgeon or entrepreneur. That's the kind of thing a sociopath would suggest. 

As far as the deep challenge we face, it is true that things look bleak. But I have hope. A friend asked how we pick presidents who are not psychopaths. I think the first thing to do is to look at the question. Modern democracies don't have presidents and houses of congress. They have a parliament and prime ministers who can be removed any time. 

Ideally, I'd like to see a world without executive branches with the power Obama wields. The horizontal/ bottom up ideas of occupy wall street were scoffed at by most. But they demonstrated new ways of thinking about decision making and leadership by large organizations. There ARE other ways and other possibilities. We must explore them. And it may very well be that the answer is to a question we haven't asked yet but will, soon.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
