In my limited study of the multiple ramifications of psycho/sociopathy on society, I find it somewhat distressing that the SPICE list (above) could very well be a summation of the verified characteristics of a psycho/sociopathic individual/society. Historical studies -- going back historically as far as we have written records of humanity -- have shown that this particular type of mentality represents about 1% of any group of people. Additionally, these 1% are able to use the SPICE characteristics to their advantage in attracting and dominating an additional 5% to become their fawning and obedient minions.

Psycho/sociopaths in positions of power are ruthless in their damage to those they control. We can readily attribute the war, corporate, banking, political, legal/court, religion, election, etc., manipulations to these mentally defective individuals. Fortunately, we now have the capability to identify and isolate these people from positions of power and control over the rest of us. Until we do, we will be severely handicapped -- if not completely thwarted -- in our pursuit of a fair, just and thriving world.

Could it be that what may be considered the key to us saving ourselves from ourselves is simultaneously the same key that is being used to imprison us through psycho/sociopathic instigated distrust, disagreement, hatred, conflict, disillusionment, poverty and depravity among ourselves? Reflect on that possibility before you again start to express a negative comment, get into an argument, attack another person, put down or ignore another person's perspective, show/feel/foment distrust, feel Road Rage, support a war effort -- or vote.


Speaking of voting, is Dr. Jill Stein the only Presidential Candidate who has addressed the primal issue regarding all of the corrupt voting processes in the US?
