Have you ever watched a cat playing with a mouse? I mean, those deadly moments when the mouse tries her best to escape death? It's a mixed feeling. Anyway, apologists put the blame on the mouse because they believe had she not performed antics the cat would have spared her life.
How about a 'hanging judge'? Yes, in your life time. Well, such a person did once live among us and he acted exactly like the cat and the mouse. For instance, he used to tie his victims, blind-fold, to the pole and repeatedly exercise mock execution! Then, he would send them back to their cells. On the very day of actual execution, he would order his thugs to first shoot off victims' kneecaps or elbows. Seeing their painful cries, he would hysterically jump up and down. Finally, he and not his firing squad would pick up a Kalashnikov assault rifle and finish them up.
Do you remember Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, the alleged Pan Am bomber? The one who was supposed to die of cancer a year ago, but still safe and sound? Did you see his hero's welcome: Before, stepping down the plane a reporter could have asked him a tricky question, "Now that you're returning home, sir, what is your immediate feeling about 270 passengers killed in the crash?" And he would have responded 'none whatsoever'. 'What do you mean none?' Ali al-Megrahi could have said, "What is your feeling after peeling off 270 oranges? Do you feel sorry for the oranges or do you enjoy eating them? Same with me."
In the case of the cat and the hanging judge, both are completely free of any painful remorse or pangs of conscience. As to the hero's welcome, the tricky question reveals that the al-Megrahi has no feeling for his victims whatsoever.
Now, if the cat, the judge and the fake hero have no conscience, no feelings, no sense of concern for their victims, if the they feel no shame, and if they are selfish, harmful, immoral, what would you call them? Psychology calls these people 'psychopaths'. And a psychopath is a person who suffers from personality disorder.
Pschopaths, like serial killers, have no feelings; the only feeling they have is a predatory feeling. Yes, they do feel sorry, but their sorrow is for failing to reach their objectives. Psychopaths enjoy making others suffer, like the cat and the hanging judge. Since psychopaths are good impostors, they perfectly fit the job of politicians.
When on stage, they can easily cheat people, feign false emotions. Yes, they do shed tears! Why do we choose them as our leaders? Because we believe all people like us have a conscience. A psychopath can easily hide behind the camouflage.
Now, do you think you can change the followers of these people? No. Most of these people have a conviction. And convictions die hard. The reason they don't want to change comes from their ego. They want to remain right.
Psychopaths are notorious for not answering the questions. They also phrase words in a manner that makes them difficult to understand. For instance, they do not observe sequence of tense. Their speech, most of the time, is incoherent; it lacks unity; it frequently uses Double Reference; it lacks parallel Structure. Briefly, if you actively listen to him, soon you give up interest.
Psychopathic politicians have remarkable ease for lying. Another trait of psychopaths is their frequent use of contradictory and logically inconsistent statements. He can freely say that Alaska is located next to Cape Town.
