On December 15, 2015, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: “Modi is a coward and a psychopath.”
This is one of the few times I’ve heard one politician refer to another as a psychopath. I’m not sure if he meant it in a clinical sense (Kejriwal is a mechanical engineer by training, not a psychiatrist) or if he was just attacking him, but it’s good to see the concept of politicians perhaps being psychopaths in the mainstream.
Most stories I see hitting the news about psychopaths are still talking about characters in TV shows.
According to the Guardian:
The oil and gas industry substantially rewards US legislators with campaign donations when they oppose environmental protections, according to a new analysis of congressional votes and political contributions.
This week in the United States, The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy amid “hundreds, if not thousands, of abuse lawsuits” involving sexual abuse. According to USA Today:
the 100-year-old organization had kept track of suspected and known abusers and failed to consistently report them to police or inform parents or the public of the extent of the problem.
The organization was sitting on “20,000 confidential documents, which became known as the “perversion files.” Those records named more than 1,000 banned volunteers…”
Now what kind of people do you think were in management of the Boy Scouts for all these years? For a century, the Boy Scouts wouldn’t allow homosexual children or leaders into their ranks, and taught that any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, is not allowed.
But protecting child rapists was okay.
