What Is Happening in Venezuela and Why It Matters


I don't understand why someone hasn't killed this bastard yet.. I mean seriously.
If not a citizen, how about state sponsored??
9. Violence
The criteria for dissocial personality include a “very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.” The criteria for antisocial personality disorder include irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults. Philosophers can play a valuable role here in discerning the consequences of all of these findings for our attempts to build an ethical society. Several questions need addressing: What does the possibility that psychopathy is genetic say about human nature? What steps can we take to “correct” psychopaths, and which are the most ethical? If it is true that psychopaths have damaged or abnormal brains, can we hold them responsible for what they do? Are there degrees of psychopathy, so that normal people may possess psychopathic traits?
1. Uncaring
The PCL describes psychopaths as being callous and showing a lack of empathy, traits the PPI describes as “coldheartedness.” The criteria for dissocial personality disorder (a related diagnosis) include a “callous unconcern for the feelings of others.” Several lines of evidence point to a biological grounding for the uncaring nature of the psychopath. For us, caring is a largely emotion-driven enterprise. Psychopaths have been found to have weak connections among the components of the brain’s emotional systems. These disconnects are responsible for the inability to feel emotions deeply. Psychopaths are also not good at detecting fear in the faces of other people (Blair et al., 2004). The emotion of disgust also plays an important role in our ethical sense. We find certain types of unethical actions disgusting; this works to keep us from engaging in them and makes us express disapproval of them. But psychopaths have extremely high thresholds for disgust, as measured by their reactions when shown disgusting photos of mutilated faces and when exposed to foul odors.
One promising new line of research is based on the recent discovery of a brain network responsible for understanding the minds of others. Called the default mode network (because it also performs other tasks and is operating most of the time when we are awake), it involves a cluster of several different areas in the brain’s cortex. The first studies have been done on the function of this network in psychopaths, and as expected, they have noted “aberrant functional connectivity” among its parts of the network, along with reduced volume in some of the network's crucial areas.
2. Shallow Emotions
Psychopaths and, to a degree, sociopaths, show a lack of emotion, especially social emotions such as shame, guilt, and embarrassment. Cleckley said that the psychopaths he came into contact with showed “general poverty in major affective reactions” and a “lack of remorse or shame.” The PCL describes psychopaths as “emotionally shallow” and showing a lack of guilt. Psychopaths are notorious for a lack of fear. When other people are put into an experimental situation in which they anticipate that something painful will happen, such as a mild electric shock or mildly aversive pressure applied to a limb, a brain network activates. Normal people will also show a clear skin conductance response, produced by sweat gland activity. In psychopathic subjects, however, this brain network shows no activity, and no skin conductance responses are emitted (Birbaumer et al., 2012).
3. Irresponsibility
According to Cleckley, psychopaths show unreliability, while the PCL mentions “irresponsibility,” and the PPI describes psychopaths as showing “blame externalization,” i.e. they blame others for things that are actually their fault. They may admit blame when forced into a corner, but these admissions are not accompanied by a sense of shame or remorse and have no power to change future behavior.
4. Insincere Speech
Ranging from what the PCL describes as “glibness” and “superficial charm,” to Cleckley’s “untruthfulness” and “insincerity,” to outright “pathological lying,” there is a trend toward devaluing speech itself among psychopaths by inflating and distorting it toward selfish ends. The criteria for APD include “conning others for personal profit or pleasure.” One concerned father of a young sociopathic woman said, “I can't understand the girl, no matter how hard I try. It's not that she seems bad or exactly that she means to do wrong. She can lie with the straightest face, and after she's found in the most outlandish lies she still seems perfectly easy in her own mind” (Cleckley, 1941, p. 47). This casual use of words may be attributable to what some researchers call a shallow sense of word meaning. Psychopaths do not show the differential brain response to emotional terms over neutral terms that other people do (Williamson et al., 1991). They also have trouble understanding metaphors and abstract words.
5. Overconfidence
The PCL describes sociopaths as possessing a “grandiose sense of self worth.” Cleckley speaks frequently of the boastfulness of his patients. Hare (1993) describes an imprisoned sociopath who believed he was a world-class swimmer.
6. Narrowing of Attention
According to Newman and his colleagues, the core deficit in psychopathy is a failure of what they call response modulation (Hiatt and Newman, 2006). When most of us engage in a task, we are able to alter our activity or modulate our responses, depending on relevant peripheral information that appears after the task has begun. Psychopaths are specifically deficient in this ability, and according to Newman, this explains their impulsivity, a trait which shows up in several of the lists of criteria, as well as their problems with passive avoidance and with processing emotions.
Top-down attention tends to be under voluntary control, whereas bottom-up attention happens involuntarily. But bottom-up attention can temporarily capture top-down attention, as when movement in the periphery of our visual field attracts our attention. Psychopaths have trouble using top-down attention to accommodate information that activates bottom-up attention during a task. In other people, this process tends to happen automatically. When a hunter is scanning for deer, a rabbit hopping into the periphery of his visual field automatically attracts his attention. Top-down attentional processes monitor the field of attention for conflicts and resolve them. The standard means of assessing this is the Stroop Task, in which a subject must read color words which are printed in ink of a conflicting color, such as “red” printed in blue ink. Several studies indicate that psychopaths actually perform better than other people on these tasks (Hiatt et al., 2004; Newman et al., 1997).
7. Selfishness
Cleckley spoke of his psychopaths showing “pathologic egocentricity [and incapacity for love],” which is affirmed in the PPI's inclusion of egocentricity among its criteria. The PCL also mentions a “parasitic lifestyle.”
8. Inability to Plan for the Future
Cleckley's psychopaths showed a “failure to follow any life plan.” According to the PCL, psychopaths have a “lack of realistic long-term goals,” while the PPI describes them as showing a “carefree nonplanness.”

Proving that MHz is a mentally challenged dickless wonder is straightforward and SIMPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Proving that LIE-berals ARE CHEATING US with an assembly of Fake News........................

REQUIRES MORE DETAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CONSIDER LIE-beral election rigging for example!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is an older article to remind us of LIE-beral deceitful and deliberate attempts to rig elections!! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Trudeau Grilled Over ‘Anti-Conservative’ Unifor’s Role In Media Bailout Plan
Tories are accusing Liberals of seeking to "rig the next election."

By Althia Raj, from HuffPost

Published 05/28/2019

OTTAWA — Without a hint of irony, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau cited Unifor’s praise for his government’s handling of the NAFTA file Tuesday as Conservative MPs spent question period attacking his government’s relationship with the “anti-Conservative” union.

(I suggest that Conservatives are CORRECT about LIE-beral election manipulation!! We DO KNOW that LIE-berals and civil service union HOGS are engaged in a GROSS CONFLICT OF INTEREST in which HOGS sell their votes to LIE-berals in exchange for pay raises that are WAY HIGHER than those given to ordinary Cdns for similar work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Even worse - LIE-berals are breaking the bank supplying solid gold pensions to our costly and growing army of HOGS - that LIE-berals rely on at election time!!!)

Trudeau was grilled over the decision to appoint Unifor as one of eight groups who will name a panel of experts to help decide which media outlets will qualify for a government handout to journalistic outfits. Unifor, the union representing the largest number of journalists, had previously referred to itself as Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer’s “worst nightmare” in a social media post.

Here's the ‘independent’ group Justin Trudeau has appointed to help decide how $600 million of taxpayer dollars will be spent on election-year media bailouts. If Trudeau is so worried about election interference, he can start by kicking Unifor off this panel. https://t.co/cT6q9L7zGN
— Andrew Scheer (@AndrewScheer) May 22, 2019

(Yes- as if most of Cdn news media was not already NOTORIOUSLY LIE-beral friendly - LIE-berals then tried to BUY the 2019 election with $600 million dollars worth of BRIBERY to “news media they trust” !! Meaning news media that says nice things about LIE-berals!! And is it not odd that the MAJORITY of Cdn news media people BELONG TO UNIFOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Thus the $600 million LIE-beral media fund IS ANOTHER GROSS CONFLICT OF INTEREST!! As if LIE-berals did not already have enough conflicts with Admiral Norman and Lavalin and with their shameless indifference to Cdn Senate waste and extravagance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“Unifor is a highly partisan group,” charged deputy Conservative leader Lisa Raitt. “Its objective is to elect Liberals and defeat Conservatives, yet the prime minister has chosen to appoint it to this very important panel. Why does the prime minister not openly admit he is stacking the deck for himself?”

Trudeau responded that his government believes a strong, independent media is a cornerstone of Canadian democracy and that it is acting to ensure media continue to hold elected officials to account.

(So when can we expect LIE-berals to admit that WE DO NOT HAVE AN INDEPENDENT NEWS MEDIA - since HOG unions habitually flout election spending laws in defence of LIE-berals by hiding behind third party spending rules - and this $600 million dollar media fund is simply another BRIBE to the union HOGS - that election officials are ignoring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

By appointing Unifor, Trudeau suggested the government was only ensuring that employees were represented along with employers to a panel drafting recommendations for what qualifications news organizations would need to benefit from a $595-million support package to the struggling industry.

“The Conservatives, however, continue to attack organized labour, including attacking the largest private sector union in the country, because their hate for labour does not know limits,” Trudeau accused.

(If LIE-berals wanted to be honest - which they don’t - the idiot Boy would admit that ALL the recent strikes in Canada - meaning CP Rail, the UNIFOR strike in Regina against Coop Oil Refinery, the General Motors strike, and our ongoing Ontari-owe teacher strikes are ALL being made by union HOGS who enjoy either a TOTAL MONOPOLY ON SOME ESSENTIAL SERVICE - or who enjoy a NEAR TOTAL MONOPOLY - and are thus able to hold the ENTIRE COUNTRY TO RANSOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Conservatives are NOT attacking “organized labour” - they are resisting arrogant union DICTATORS who have all the charm and moral authority of Mafia hoodlums claiming “protection money” from cowed store owners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Moments later, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh stood up to ask why the federal government was pushing to pass the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), or NAFTA 2.0 as some have called it, quickly rather than wait and see what changes the Democrats in Congress might bring to help protect jobs and lower the cost of medication. Trudeau said the government had worked hard to negotiate the best possible deal for Canadians and that was exactly what they had gotten.

(The fact is that Trudope got what he wanted from NAFTA- he had the chance to insult Yankees and to virtue signal his contempt for western democratic values!!!!)

(WE need to recall that papa Pierre Trudope PRAISED what he called the “Genius of Chinese Chairman Mao in rushing 30 million people to the gallows”!! Yes- Pierre Trudope OFFERED WRITTEN PUBLIC PRAISE for the genius of a Chinese mass murderer and then Pierre`s idiot son told us he “likes the way the Chinese get things done”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(In other news - Our idiot Boy gave a tearful eulogy over the death of bloody handed Cuban dictator Fidel Castro - a long time pal of the Trudope clan!! When Castro took over as Cuban dictator - Amnesty International reported that the first year of Cuban Soviet rule became known as”The year of the firing squad” since Castro EXECUTED so many political enemies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Amnesty International also detailed the Cuban habit of draining most of the blood from those ordered to be executed - it was a delicate balance for Soviet doctors to drain as much blood as possible for re-sale to western hospitals - but NOT TO TAKE SO MUCH - that the victim would fall unconscious and be unaware of the looming presence of the firing squad!! Such vindictive behaviour suggests a truly awful level of SOVIET HATE towards any political opposition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“It’s not just us that is saying that,” the prime minister said in French. “Let’s ask Jerry Dias, of Unifor, who said that it is a deal that is much better than the deal that was signed 25 years ago,” Trudeau said to the amusing astonishment of the Conservative bench.

“Oh, oh,” they called out with smiles on their faces.

Dias is Unifor’s national president.

In the House, the Tories didn’t let the issue go. British Columbia MP Mark Strahl said Dias had boasted of Unifor being a major financial supporter of Engage Canada in the last election. The group is currently running ads against Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and, in 2015, ran ads against then-Conservative leader Stephen Harper.

(Yes- as mentioned - the HOGS are straining credibility with their wild bending of election spending rules and the gross conflict of interest such spending involves!!)

(LIE-berals had other plans to rig our elections - that have fallen through due to PUBLIC DISGUST!! For instance LIE-beral electoral reform was designed to fragment our parliament into little one issue parties - to produce Italian style govt PARALYSIS!! Our parliament would become an out of control spending machine with NO OFF SWITCH since no single party could gather the numbers needed to take effective action!! We have only to look at those periodic Washington govt shut downs to see what sort of PARALYSIS LIE-berals had planned for us!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals also hoped that by reserving half the seats in parliament for women - they would again be able to stack the deck since women tend to me more Socialist minded and thus FORCING Cdns to accept female MP`s they DID NOT VOTE FOR - because all the male designated seats are taken - would naturally introduce a more Socialist minded minority into parliament - that would happily work with LIE-berals AGAINST THE WISHES of the Cdn majority!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Fortunately Cdns rejected the various LIE-beral electoral reform vote rigging scams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Frustrated by their electoral reform failures - LIE-berals then attempted to use Human Rights Kangaroo Court Hate Bigotry to SILENCE their many critics!! LIE-berals wanted to SHUT DOWN any public discussion of their ruinous deficit financing or their lunatic open border immigration polices by designating critics as being guilty of hate speech!! LIE-berals even tried to use their slanderous claims of Islamophobia bigotry to prohibit any talk of Muslim terrorists - and even that LIE-beral effort was shot down!!!!!!!!!)

(In spite of all this bribery and manipulation -LIE-berals could not buy themselves a second majority govt - and the LIE-beral minority is now siting on its hands and waiting for either a political miracle to save them - or a political AXE to put them out of their minority misery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
