Psychiatrists estimate that 1 percent of the adult population are psychopaths. That’s about 50 to 60 million psychopaths worldwide. Two million psychopaths in America alone. They crave power. They feign charm. They have zero empathy, don’t feel guilt, and think of themselves as inherently superior to the people around them.
This highly engaging and gripping read provides a detailed analysis of how our society encourages and rewards psychopathic tendencies and how, because of this, psychopaths the world over have risen to power. Reilly offers a field guide to psychopaths — how to spot them and the organizations they run — so we can avoid the inevitable damage of their worst impulses.
Featuring 15 explosive new chapters, this new edition of the New York Times bestseller brings the story of Economic Hit Men up-to-date and, chillingly, home to the U.S.―but it also gives us hope and the tools to fight back.
Former economic hit man John Perkins shares new details about the ways he and others cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Then he reveals how the deadly EHM cancer he helped create has spread far more widely and deeply than ever in the US and everywhere else—to become the dominant system of business, government, and society today. Finally, he gives an insider view of what we each can do to change it.
The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson’s exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world’s top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues. And so Ronson, armed with his new psychopath-spotting abilities, enters the corridors of power. He spends time with a death-squad leader institutionalized for mortgage fraud in Coxsackie, New York; a legendary CEO whose psychopathy has been speculated about in the press; and a patient in an asylum for the criminally insane who insists he’s sane and certainly not a psychopath.
What, and who, caused the Great Depression, and is this reoccurring in America today? This book answers these questions. The facts will shock and alter your worldview. Americans are misled about the Great Depression, U. S. financial markets and economic policy. This is reality even with constitutional protection for freedoms of speech and press. The true story is finally told and documented by The Fruits of Graft. Americans are not, after all, a classless society, though a majority are productive middle class who spurn class distinctions. Nearly all will be astonished to learn that American poor and middle classes are targets of ruthless, ceaseless class warfare.
Class warfare is not waged by the people themselves, but by a small, powerful circle of ultra-rich. These dominant elite crave a two-class society in which they hold “full power.” Their power over government is so complete they are above the law.
Psychopaths are little understood outside of the criminal image. However, as the recent global financial crisis highlighted, the behavior of a small group of managers can potentially bring down the entire western system of business. This book investigates who they are, why they do what they do and what the consequences of their presence are.
Over the last 150 years the corporation has risen from relative obscurity to become the world’s dominant economic institution. Eminent Canadian law professor and legal theorist Joel Bakan contends that today’s corporation is a pathological institution, a dangerous possessor of the great power it wields over people and societies.
Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, The Corporation explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation has been transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis for over 10 years.
Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics – including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.
With mountains of documentation, mostly from government and corporate sources, Sutton shows that Soviet military technology is heavily dependent on U.S. and allied gifts, “peaceful trade” and exchange programs. We’ve built for, sold or traded, or given outright to the Communists everything from copper wiring and military trucks to tank technology, missile guidance technology, computers – even the Space Shuttle. Peaceful trade is a myth … to the Soviets all trade is strategic. The paradox is that we spend $300 billion a year on a defense against an enemy we created and continue to keep in business. The deaf mute blindmen, as Lenin called them, are the multi-national businessmen who see no further than the next contract, who have their plants defended by Marxist troops (in Angola); who knowingly sell technology that comes back to kill and maim Americans.
In their second interview, Dr. Stan Monteith discusses Wall Street and the Bolshevik revolution with Antony C. Sutton. The interview was broadcast on Radio Liberty and is available via video and audio below.
