PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE RULED BY SOCIOPATHS | 2002-03-23
I never understood the Martin Luther Kings and Alex Haleys and Teddy Kennedys who all had to steal other peoples' ideas whole in order to get through school or write a book. I have always had more useful intellectual ideas than I knew what to do with. My life has been devoted to trying to get people to "steal" my words and thoughts.
When I was speech writing and legislating, a lot of people asked me if I minded putting my stuff under other peoples' names. Actually, nothing ever made me happier. I would much rather have one of my ideas spoken as the words of a major public figure than as my own.
This is a war to save my people. My weapon is words. I want them fired at as high a caliber as I can get them.
I write this column to spread my ideas. And spread they do. When you've been doing this sort of thing for over four decades, you have a feel for what originated with you.
On November 7, 1998 I wrote WHY WE ARE RULED BY SOCIOPATHS. Recently, I heard a leftist theater critic using almost my exact words.
A sociopath is a person who is incapable of feeling obligations to, or guilt about, his fellow humans. Ted Bundy stated it perfectly. He said, "I have never felt guilt and I feel sorry for anyone who does." From one to five percent of the American population is sociopathic.
I can tell that that leftist's quote came from me and from people using my ideas. If not, it doesn't matter, because the point is that the right kind of thinking is going around.
The fact that sociopaths rule both our entertainment industry and our politics is now understood widely.
Soon people will be asking why.
