Politics is highly competitive. Only sociopaths have the manipulative skills to get elected and remain in office. Politics is the most competitive occupation out of all endeavors. It is so competitive that sticking to the truth is a sure way to lose. To win, it is necessary to say or do anything that works. Truth has no utility in politics and winners use it only in odd circumstances when there is no risk in doing so. Any truth can be made to sound better with a little embellishment. People will vote for the politician who sounds the best.
When a sociopath takes office, all is not lost. A sociopath’s version of conscience is an exaggerated need to maintain high self esteem. There is a constant fear of losing a positive public image. So, on the outside a sociopath appears to have a conscience like everyone else.
So, how does one get good out of a sociopath who holds a public office? Righteous ridicule is to a sociopath as kryptonite was to Superman.
The scriptures are a great source of natural law.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
Why would Jesus ridicule the Pharisees? The pharisees were the sociopaths in charge during his time.
People are much too gentle with the representatives they elect.
