Psychopathy is a mental condition wherein the capacity to experience emotions such as empathy, kindness or mercy (humanity) is compromised. However, people with significant levels of psychopathy are especially adept at learning to mimic emotions and at detecting vulnerabilities in others. This makes psychopaths a danger to social well-being or highly
successful social beings… it all depends on how one views success.

This talk will discuss the effects of psychopathy on the social, political and economic life in society.
