Are people with “evil” thoughts that choose not to act on them truly evil? For that matter, are people with “good” thoughts that choose not to act on them truly good? I suspect that many neurotypicals, with their infinite hypocrisy, would consider the first group evil and the second group good. There is perception among many in this world that thought is equivalent to action regardless of victims or beneficiaries.
The psychopath – and I would love to know if there are counter-examples / how diverse this facet really is – that dreams of blood in the night should not be abhorred so long as he chooses to keep his red fantasies within the realms of the mind. His love of blood is condemned, while the masses enjoying the same bloody scenes through their favorite media are considered ‘a-ok’. It is acceptable – by the will of the mass – for those with a prosocial alignment to enjoy the primal and carnal thoughts that many humans enjoy. However, the neurotypical shows signs of confirmation bias toward those who are psychopathic. They use the psychopath’s love of the same blood red fantasies as post-priori justification for further stigma. “Do as I say, not as I do.”
