ARE YOU A BIGOT OR ARE YOU A SOCIOPATH? | 2003-02-22

For the sociopaths who run our society "prejudice" is an awful thing. For the sociopaths who run our society, prejudice is an alien thing.

The sociopaths who run our society have no gut feelings. They have no prejudices. They do what they have done all their lives: They find out what feelings they should have and they believe they have them.

I would rather be prejudiced than be a sociopath. I would rather be a bigot than a sociopath.
