I commend this author for letting people know what is inside the mind of a sociopath ~ most would not admit to any of this. They study human behavior and then mimic it. Some researchers have seriously misinterpreted their ability to read people as "empathy," when in fact, they are the least empathic people on the planet. To those who would like to learn more about them, I recommend studying the Enneagram, Type 8, as well as the book "The Sociopath Next Door," which confirms that 3-5% of people are sociopaths.

Why not just interview your nearest politicians or overly driven capitalists? Or wall street bankers? I see no use of giving this person any time or attention on public radio. People like these are a bit of a curse on our society.
