Strange answers to the psychopath test – Jon Ronson…

Date: November 01, 2022

“Is there a definitive line that divides crazy from sane? With a hair-raising delivery, Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test, illuminates the gray areas between the two. (With live-mixed sound by Julian Treasure and animation by Evan Grant.)”

You want to know one of the main reasons capitalism is so fucked up?…It’s that it has a higher than average concentration of psychopaths at its helm.

…That’s also largely why government and “the justice system” are so fucked up.

This video is a good critique on modern psychiatric judgements…It largely comes down to the same thing as everything else…People guessing what the potentials of other people are, and imposing some sort of consequence based on how they feel…

…It’s hard to be convinced, much of anybody honestly knows what they are doing…They just know, because the rules, guidelines and parameters have already been set and ordained, nothing will happen to them if they lock up [or somehow inhibit] an undeserving, wrong target…

…They wield exceptional social power…because that’s the way things are structured…and nobody expects them to be correct all the time…

We have this concept…of “acceptable collateral damage, for the greater good”…

…People rarely like to hear the voices of the collateral damage, unwillingly sacrificed to somebodies idea of “a greater good”.
