Speciation and the Sociopath

This interesting argument about how sociopathy is a natural adaptation makes the mistake of discussing the "related disorders" of autism and, in a previous generation, homosexuality. As discussed in a previous post, no one wants to be associated with sociopathy.

But society is lucky to have sociopathy around. Sociopaths and smokers are about the only people we can safely marginalize anymore. And we all know how strong the urge to witch-hunt is.

  1. Yes we are lucky to have psychopaths/sociopaths/antisocials around (you call it sociopath--is there a difference for you?). If we didn't have them, we wouldn't have any evil in the world to fight. COncerning the more sever ones, if we didn't know their eveil, some of us would not truly know good.
