As usual, the last post of the month lists the “required reading” of the month as well as contains bonus commentary.
Potted Plants – A post detailing my ideal interactions with those around me that do not rise to a level worthy of my respect. I prefer my people to require minimal effort and yield consistent rewards.
Echoes – I wish my younger self had the maturity and insight into their personality that I do now. Those are years I can never get back and I cannot stress enough how important it is to always seek growth via introspection.
Silence … Cutting out the Tongues of Their Enemies – Society wants to keep the psychopath quiet and locked away. How can the successful psychopath ever add to the discourse if we are written off as a scourge with no chance to defend ourselves?
Respect … Readying the Blade – Those that I respect are off limits; however, that respect need not be eternal and I am always prepared for others’ attempts to backstab me.
Love, Respect, Ownership – Love will never compute for me. “Possession” of another through relationships does, however.
Void – I do not pine for the traits that empaths have. I view a lack of empathy as advantage and as desirable.
The Mark of Cain – We psychopaths wear the mark of Cain. Society brands us for our differences and fears us when they see us. We can do what God cannot. We get retribution for others’ sins against us.
Wolves’ Clothing – The rise of those identifying as psychopaths in order to be edgy is amusing but ill-advised. Do you want to be shot by your shepherd that cannot tell faux fur from the real thing? Do you merely want to be disrobed before you are devoured?
The Cave – Personality disorders are no less real if they are not diagnosed. However, that does not mean that an individual should not seek all of the knowledge that they can. The shadows on the wall of the cave are merely approximations; one must go out into the light to obtain true knowledge.
