Washington, D.C.: the Psychopath Capital of America
As Washingtonâs shock over winning the Stanley Cup demonstrates, the nationâs capital isnât used to being first in anything. As a city, itâs not the oldest, nor the biggest, nor the richest, and its sports teams are notoriously snakebitten. But finally, the capital has a claim to No. 1âand unfortunately, itâs not just in hockey.
Ryan Murphy, an economist at Southern Methodist University, recently published a working paper in which he ranked each of the states by the predominance ofâthereâs no nice way to put itâpsychopaths. The winner? Washington in a walk. In fact, the capital scored higher on Murphyâs scale than the next two runners-up combined.
âI had previously written on politicians and psychopathy, but I had no expectation D.C. would stand out as much as it does,â Murphy wrote in an email....

Democrat politicians are psychopaths. Republican politicians are normal.
Colossians 3:7-9 In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices---ESV

Dan P. McAdams wrote: ....The real psychological wild card, however, is Trumpâs agreeablenessâor lack thereof. There has probably never been a U.S. president as consistently and overtly disagreeable on the public stage as Donald Trump is. If Nixon comes closest, we might predict that Trumpâs style of decision making would look like the hard-nosed realpolitik that Nixon and his secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, displayed in international affairs during the early 1970s, along with its bare-knuckled domestic analog. That may not be all bad, depending on oneâs perspective. Not readily swayed by warm sentiments or humanitarian impulses, decision makers who, like Nixon, are dispositionally low on agreeableness might hold certain advantages when it comes to balancing competing interests or bargaining with adversaries, such as China in Nixonâs time. In international affairs, Nixon was tough, pragmatic, and coolly rational. Trump seems capable of a similar toughness and strategic pragmatism, although the cool rationality does not always seem to fit, probably because Trumpâs disagreeableness appears so strongly motivated by anger....

âWhat shall it profit a man,â Jesus asked, âif he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his own soul?â The current Republican Party seems to not understand that question. Donald Trump seems to have made gaining the world at the cost of his soul his entire lifeâs motto....

Excellent opinion piece by that Republican commentator, David Brooks
Tim, amusing, you must been listening to Fox News or Breitbart too much! yes Republicans suffer from normal immorality.
Jim, in your typical dishonest efforts at disinformation, you have calumniated the president with the best performance in office since Ronald Reagan, who, by the way, was hands-down the best president in my threescore-plus years of living. You no doubt deliberately failed to mention that Washington D.C., America's premier nutcake bakery, is about as uniformly Democratic and liberal as it is possible to get without outlawing any opposition. I invite your attention to the remainder of the article, where you will quickly discover that liberalism and severe mental disorders go hand-in-hand. Just remember, Jim, when it comes to brain wiring it's lefty-loosey, righty-tighty. Now go play with your fellow wackos and let the other folks on here get some rest.
25 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, âYou know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. 26 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. 27 And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slaveâ 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.â

It is not merely the result of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of information and married to stratospheric self-confidence."...As this column has said before, the problem isnât that he does not know this or that, or that he does not know that he does not know this or that. Rather, the dangerous thing is that he does not know what it is to know something....
