    In case you missed it, I published a piece on Medium: Is the Age of the Psychopath Over?  You can find it here.

    “Look around you. Out on the street, all those faces. They look just like you. But some of them aren’t like you at all. They’re so different, they might as well be another species. They are the secret masters of this world, and they always have been.

    If you think there’s something fundamentally wrong with the way we live our lives…if you think the game is rigged…that politics, business, commerce, warfare, produce terrible, unnecessary outcomes…it’s probably down to them.

    There’s a very good reason why you instinctively recognize it (no, you’re not being paranoid). But now, after thousands of years of civilization, we might be moving into an age where you’re not beaten down, hounded, tricked and marched towards the sound of gunfire…”

      Thank you for this article. Ever since I first heard of Dr. Horn’s work it seemed to explain so much of what has gone wrong in human society. The behavior of the psychopaths has become something to be emulated rather than recognized as the mental abnormality it is. I’ve written a green sci fi update of Lysistrata set in the year 2069, when we not only see such behavior as unattractive, we are debating whether people can also actually be addicted to money and power.

        It’s a fascinating subject.
