Alternative media sources frequently describe certain political elite members as psychopaths. But what exactly makes up a psychopath? What exactly are the political implications?
Indeed there is a lot of good will shown in the world while at the same time there exists so much suffering in the form of war, poverty and injustice. How come? Sure, humans may have dark aggressive animal tendencies but much of the suffering inflicted cannot be explained by this alone.
There is a far bigger picture.
Pathocracy comes from the Greek words Pathos –‘feeling pain and suffering’ and Kratos ‘rule.’ So pathocracy can be used to describe an oppressive tyrannical government ran by elite psychopaths and the effects it has on the people…

I’ve been researching generational differences for 25 years, starting when I was a 22-year-old doctoral student in psychology. Typically, the characteristics that come to define a generation appear gradually, and along a continuum. Beliefs and behaviors that were already rising simply continue to do so. Millennials, for instance, are a highly individualistic generation, but individualism had been increasing since the Baby Boomers turned on, tuned in, and dropped out. I had grown accustomed to line graphs of trends that looked like modest hills and valleys. Then I began studying Athena’s generation.
Around 2012, I noticed abrupt shifts in teen behaviors and emotional states. The gentle slopes of the line graphs became steep mountains and sheer cliffs, and many of the distinctive characteristics of the Millennial generation began to disappear. In all my analyses of generational data – some reaching back to the 1930s – I had never seen anything like it… see more
