The six percent – psychopaths in our midst

There’s a lot of talk about the 1%, dividing people in even middle-class America from the so-called 99% as if the 1% are terribly rich. It’s the 0.1% who are the truly wealthy – like the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers – the ones who avoid paying tax in your country, in my country, while their global corporations seek to overthrow governments, seek to create war:

Humanity is as pawns to their schemes, and they as banker, warmonger, armaments vendor and propagandist media are there to whip your social engineers (MPs and government) into doing what is their bidding.

They are psychopaths. They lack empathy for anyone or anything. They bring up their children to be the same. When I was young I went to a posh, middle-class, all-girls school and there was talk even there, of whether a girl or their brother had been ‘bloodied’ yet – a term for having the blood of a hunted and torn apart fox smeared on their faces. Yes, really – these rituals can extend all the way down to the middle classes (in England at any rate – a place full of such traditions as fox hunting). What better way to reduce empathy and traumatise a child?

However, psychopathy is not limited to those who experience such ritual abuse from their trusted families and peers. No, it’s the young boy-racer who puts his foot on the gas when he sees your cat crossing the street. It’s the youngster who works for the turkey farm and ends up being filmed throwing the live birds around and abusing them cruelly. It’s this young lady, who wove a web of lies:

These people look pretty normal, don’t they? Do they have any obvious signs you need to watch for? That’s the problem – you and I, well we wouldn’t think to assume our new friend or employee is lying, why would we? But to a functioning psychopath, lying is as easy as anything – they have no conscience at all. They are a continual danger to society – and they rise to powerful positions, because treading on other people’s faces to get where they want to go is completely natural to them. It’s not personal, either – it’s just what they need to do. They are parasites upon all they meet, and they are very good at what they do.

Here’s another one:

These stories pop up a lot, yet people are not aware that six out of every one-hundred people are psychopaths. In addition to that, a further 18% of the population can be trained to behave in psychopathic ways – think of the middle manager who wants to get to the top and goes against his own conscience to do so, because everyone else is. Think of the Milgram experiments of the 1960’s (Link). In obedience to authority, people can and do do terrible things.

I also note that shamed UK MP Simon Danczuk’s ex-wife has now said her piece in the ongoing saga of his lewd behaviour, sexting scandal and affairs.

She says of him:

“‘For me it’s quite saddening to see what has happened to Simon,’ Sonia said. ‘I really hope this is the last time I ever have to speak about him. He’s built his career on portraying himself as a caring and responsible individual. And he’s not. He has no empathy or feelings for anybody except himself. I would go so far as to say he’s a functioning psychopath.”

I don’t know if he is or not, but having read her interview, I believe her that she was bullied by him. I can see her case – but of course I don’t know the other side. It’s just time he resigned from his position as an MP. His conduct is deeply unbecoming.

So what are we to do? Psychopaths are said to be born, not made, but I doubt that. After all, each and every baby is knitted together in it’s mother’s womb by God. However, God has purposes for evil people too. We see in Psalm 106:

40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.

43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:

45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. [emphasis added]

Link to read the whole psalm, which is very interesting: Link

I’m not excusing evil here, I’m saying that even satan has a purpose in bringing the disobedient to grief. I believe that many of these psychopathic individuals are made, not born that way. They may have suffered abuse, or they may have been showered with unsuitable amounts of praise by their parents. They may believe they could do no wrong, or they may have other reasons for their behaviour – whatever it is, it has opened a door for demons to take over and create a psychopathic personality. However, their victims are usually innocent, and they usually lose money, time, emotional health and often relationships, like the lady in the first story. There is no cure for this behaviour – in fact I did hear once that in native tribes, if they found someone growing up with those tendencies, they would simply have a ‘hunting accident’ and get rid of them – I can’t verify that, nor do I think it’s right, just interesting.

Can you protect yourself from the six percent? No, I don’t think so – society is riddled with liars and thieves. I know a dear lady who’s charity was infiltrated by a plausible guy who caused them to almost lose their charity altogether – she spent a year trying to put right what he’d done. It was a disaster for her – so much stress.

I have dated at least one guy like that, possibly two – again, very charming, and if you are sensitive and caring it can and will be used against you. If they aren’t full psychopaths, they can often be simply narcissistic (Link and Link).

But now I have God – and I love and trust in Him to protect me at the personal level. I pray that we all will have the discernment to see if we are being harmed by someone, and to not keep up our defences with everyone new, but to recognise the good from the bad company by their fruits and not continue with those who are bad once we recognise their behaviour.

I also pray that we will have the fortitude to speak against evil, and stand against evil in the coming days. We will need to be strong to resist the evil that is coming.

I pray we do.

God Bless you
