  2. Gay State Girl

    Old Man Kennedy didn’t make your list?

  3. Latias

    Add Videla, Nuland, and Pinochet.

    As for Nuland, I don’t know if she really believes her propaganda. In that case she is not a psychopath. But that bitch is certainly a hypocrite.

    Right-wingers want to add Stalin to list.

    Justin Bieber cry during a concert. Does not seem like the normal behavior of a psychopath ? What do you think Robert ?

    Is the number 1 the most psychopathic and the number 41 the least ?

    Who is Bris Brown btw ?

  5. Enoch

    What make you think that Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Naomi Campbell, Mark Wahlberg,  Aretha Franklin, Steve Jobs and Ayn Rand are psychopaths ?

    Why did you chose to put Ted Cruz but not Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in your list ?

    ‘Political Ponerology’ is an outstanding book on the mentality of psychopaths and the methods they use to promote themselves. Details here: This edition is a rather poor translation of the original Polish, which makes it harder going than it should be. But it’s a remarkable read and has a lot of explanatory power.

    Aretha Franklin? You make me feel like a natural woman… 😆

  8. Sam

    Courtney is definitely a psychopath. Watch this documentary “Kurt and Courtney” and listen to what all the people say about Courtney.

  9. Another William Playfair Web

    Ultimately, Dick Cheney was someone who had no regard for the negative consequences his actions had on others (whatever illness that is) and was also willing to impulsively lie, invent things, to get his way (a way that also had negative consequences for many, many people, yet he did not care).

    In America, we see him as pointlessly killing many of our young men- our soldiers, and it is true that he did.
    but one must also consider, the lives lost in Iraq, the lives lost throughout the middle East via Arab Spring destabilization, and more. Largely, he could have predicted his actions would have triggered these brutal civil wars (i.e. Syria) and perhaps even that the refugees pouring into Europe would have the effect of rising fascism. He did not care, which in and of itself is alarming. The “Global Elites” may be prepared for this populist, Nationalist, and Fascist upsurge in the U.S. and Europe (or whichever occurs)- and that’s scary, scary, scary.

    Donald Trump: Narcissistic Sociopath!
