Psychopaths and Mass Violence: The Ideological Component

Jul 21, 2012 by

While the author is almost certainly on the right track, it’s important to bear in mind that psychopaths, while sharing some essential qualities (or the lack thereof), appear to come in all shapes and sizes and that most of them don’t resort to outright violence to get what they want.There’s going to be a lot of finger-pointing and hand-wringing in the coming days as we begin to process the awful tragedy that unfolded early this morning in Aurora, Colorado. In particular, it seems that right-wingers are eager to point fingers and are being hypersensitive about any suggestion of right-wing politics being even remotely involved in this case.
