    It has often been theorized that if an alien species where to invade the Earth and attempt to subjugate or wipe out the human population of the planet that we would forget all our differences and unite together as one species in order to defend ourselves and confront our common enemy.

    I am here to say in all seriousness and with heaviness of heart that day as now arrived. After I expose them for what they are, the rat basterds that I am about to expose will probably try to silence me but I won't let them cow me into fear.

    People a long time ago their were two or three species of humanity (Neanderthals, Homo Sapiens and Denisovans on the planet who live in dire competition with each other for resources even though there were plenty of resources for everyone at the time to live in peaceful co-existence but such wasn't to happen. Why? Instinct kick in between the species and the only most of them thought about was wiping out the other species of humanity before they wiped them out. It is a normal and natural response to what is perceived as threat. In the course of this development one species proved to be more talented and adept at killing the other species of humanity due to many factors in the evolution of that species of human.

    People, we have arrived to this point again. A new species of human is on the rise and they pose a continued threat against the rest of us and if we do not deal with them they will either enslave us or they will right murder us. They view us as inferior to themselves just as we looked at the Neanderthal and Denisovans as inferior. They don't believe that our cultures and our civilization is worthy of survival and are doing their utmost to destroy it.

    I am talking about the Psychopaths. New information is coming out that psychopathy may not be a mental disorder at all but a evolutionary adaptation and highly advantageous one? They hide amongst us waiting and watching for any moment of weakness, they occupy the highest offices of government throughout the world throwing civilization into chaos, they live among us, work besides us, they pray in our churches, marry our sons and daughters all with one goal in mind: to make life a living hell for us.

    We must learn from the latest data from the scientific community and accept it for what it is. We must prepare ourselves for this uncomfortable truth that they are out there and they are out to get us.

    If I am right then God help us all.

    I thought it were the narcissists that are on the rise, but psychopaths might be as well.
    They lack LOVE, so in the end they will lose anyway ... that is what I believe
    But in the mean time they can cause quite some damage

    We should not be afraid, but it's good to expose them for what they are
    The problem is that especially those people go for the highest positions

    They also said back in 16 that 1 in 5 CEOs are psychopaths as a result of a study.

    What really gets to me is that it might not be a disorder but an inherited trait with some advantages. I actually do believe that psychopaths encourage negative behavior in otherwise normal people hence the rise of narcissism within our culture and civilization

    My father is a narcissist. I was unaware of this and that it existed. I have spent 8 month on a forum for narcissistic victims. They all said that narcissism is a disorder. Even mentioned in the "Bible of Psychology". I don't buy that anymore. It is a disorder, namely "the disorder of excessive egoism". That's all. They all said the narcissist can't feel empathy. For sure many feel loads of empathy but just for themselves, according to my experiences

    But I do understand now that doctors and psychologists and politicians etc. rather see Narcissism as a disorder. If they were exposed as real criminals they could be charged for it. Now they are quite safe doing their hurtful acts. Worst case scenario "I can't help myself ... it's my disorder".

    Narcissism I see a lot in the highest places. So they are the ones telling us "it's a disorder". Smart cookies they are .. the narcissists.

    I can be wrong ... but I have the feeling I'm right on this one.

    Even if we unite, how do you declare war on psychopaths? Things are never going to be black and white. There are psychopaths who will be leaders with many healthy, humble, charitable people who are willing to serve, sacrifice, or even die for their leaders. So, humanity cannot unite against psychopaths, unless every psychopath wore a different uniform or looked like a stereotypical alien.

    Psychopaths have already been here forever.
    Here are some examples:
    The 8 Scariest Psychopaths in History - Jeri Fink - Medium

    I am related to a few and I do know that it is not considered a disorder. Psychopaths can't change with medication or therapy because they don't have the ability to care to do so. I don't wish to reveal how I know this personally but I do. If all humans were psychopaths, the species would not survive. Children would not be cared for and would not survive. No one would create laws or stop criminals. People would never care about others and so would often kill many others or hurt them in heinous ways. The world would be in chaos. Basically, psychopathy is only advantageous to the psychopath and fellow psychopaths who work together with them.

    I do believe that many people in high places have psychopathic tendencies. I agree with the posts about narcissists and egoism. The article didn't mention Hitler but he is a prime example of a psychopath gaining power. I have fear of someone like him coming into power in the United States. Wait, hasn't that just happened in the last few years?

    I hope we can survive long enough for the psychopaths to lose power otherwise, our species is doomed.

    You are definitely right and that is the saddest thing I know of. It is amazing how so many people will just follow psychopaths blindly.

    My heart goes out to you. I am related to narcissists. I just realized early in life that they were uncaring and unkind people. So, I always felt that they were wrong. I think that it may have helped me to become a realist and determine what is and what is not in life. It may have caused me to be quite logical most of the time.

    I doubt it. Saint dymphna was a daughter of a psychopath, and she was the opposite.

    Matt, she was lucky but when you look at the literature over 50% of the children of psychopaths will inherit the trait

    Thanks.

    Looking back, I can see now that the narcissist was my perfect medicine to become "spiritual"

    Overthrow one higher degree psychopathic and narcissistic regime and a new one will just take over or become that way with tastes of power. Most people can barely tie their shoes and need authorities for every little thing as is. That, and also all of us have been psychopaths and narcissists to varying degrees ourselves... with many still being that way and ignorant to such. If there were a mass awakening and rebellion, I’m sure they’d just have the technology to unleash any kind of airborne warfare anyhow and off us all rather instantaneously while they are all safe and sound. All of the guns in the world wouldn’t stop it.

    That would depend on the person. For me, I don’t want to be here. It’s like a thanks, but no thanks. Outgrown it entirely. None of its entertainments are appealing anymore. It’s a lot of chasing after the wind and running in circles going nowhere to me. It’s like a Bjork song... ‘I’ve seen it all.’ Serene as ever with that. All that’s left is to physically die. I don’t fear for my life. To me, this place is a prison, psuedo-world, a twisted experiment, and zoo. I don’t want to participate in any more harm or suffering to anything.

    If aliens ever invaded, I’d hope they took me. Because I don’t even feel human anymore. Feel alien and foreign.

    But sure, I also am selfless enough to know that many enjoy and love their lives here as I once did too. And I’d want nothing more for those that do to not be in any chains, and not be harmed or abused in any way.

    There are also hidden truths in plain sight everywhere, and in many movies, in many song lyrics. For those with the proper glasses/lens on. Also, with what that trailer is referring to. I know as if I’m living among the walking dead, and I know all about the character and nature of the hierarchies and the blending right in and what’s going on.

    There was once a series of books I think that were called Anno Dracula or something like that were the vampires took over and all the normal people were nothing but cattle. Do you think it will end up like that?
