The Sociopath

« The sociopath typically has a history of cruelty, feeling neither guilt nor remorse for hurting others. They are vindictive, lacking in empathy, and rarely learn from their mistakes. If well-funded, they often escape penalty for wrongdoing. Using real-life examples from Trump’s life: a sociopath has no qualms about separating babies from their mothers, mocking a disabled reporter, ridiculing public figures or firing others at will. He will stop at nothing to get what he wants, including inciting violence. »

This could not be better said. Found on the Internet, and written by Fran Ferder and John Heagle and entitled: How Catholics Got Conned by Donald Trump (https://www.ncronline.org/news/people/how-catholics-got-conned-donald-trump), these are words that absolutely frighten me.

When I think of people like that and I how I have encountered variations of them through the years, it saddens me to think that these narcissistic bullies are capable and able of getting away with so much and when they do so, often appear as if they are doing things for the right reasons and even applauded.

I wish that I could only say that the person I have personally encountered is malbor, but clearly that is not the case. I have met others. The cruelty of these individuals is something of horror to behold as they strive to manipulate life and its situations to their own desires.

It is frightening to think that people can get away with this.

It is frightening to think that people are okay with allowing them to do so.

Throughout the ages, these people have existed and been allowed to bulldoze over everything in their sights as the go through life.

I always wonder if justice will prevail.

In the case of Trump, that remains to be seen.
