I know someone who acts like a sociopath. He has the following qualities:

- Denies his past behavior when it is inconvenient for him
- Takes people to court all the time to sue for petty issues
- Vandalizes the property of people he has disputes with
- Has no empathy for other people's feelings
- Never maintains a friendship with people once they discover what he's really like
- Always makes sure he pays less than the other guy in mutual outings
- Pesters eternally until the other party gives in to his demands
- Has poisoned animals as revenge for deals or arguments that didn't go his way
- Mistreats pets
- Abuses family
- Does not ever care if his actions inconvenience others
- Is tighter beyond belief with his money
- Does not care how others perceive him or his actions
- Forces other people to do things against their will if he has leverage

I'm glad you've decided to finally admit you have a problem.

Hooray!

I also love these threads because they cause the sociopaths to identify themselves.

These two videos discuss the prevalence of sociopaths in society, how they disguise themselves, and the lengths they'll go to in order to avoid detection.

The Fascists That Surround You - Part 1
The Fascists That Surround You - Part 2: Sociopaths

What fascism have anything to do with sociopaths?
Fascism:Sociopaths::Garden:Roses.

The Dunning-Kruger experiments (mentioned in the first video) show that people who are bad at something not only grossly overestimate their own abilities but also miss the meta-cognitive skills to recognize their mistakes and fail to recognize competence in their peers.

While the plants in the garden worship the roses, they fail to recognize the wisdom of the trees. If they did, the garden could blossom into a forest, creating a complex ecosystem where many more species could develop and thrive.

I guess the roses are not the real problem. The plants are.

Yes, well done, the analogy became more stupid than before!

Plants do not worship roses and gardens are not made to become forests.

I am still waiting you to prove that I made a straw man. Where is the post where I said you were equaling fascists with sociopath?

You're kidding, right? Your whole argument is predicated on the fact that the words mean different things, and are in your mind therefore unrelated:

I care for textual definitions. You are producing a false relation between two different definitions.

You're kidding, right?

I am not.

I am asking you to prove that your allegation of straw man is right, that I limited your original argument to:

Fascism = Sociopaths

All you have to do is show the quote where I suggested that. If you cannot show the quote, you should admit that I did not resort to a straw man argument.

Yes there is: your claim that what I am saying is that fascism = sociopaths. since that's clearly false, and I never claimed that, That is a straw man, that you set up so you could knock down with definitions. Unless you are just a fucking moron, and can't understand an analogy. So which is it, Straw man, or moron?

Straw man.
Which you then attempted to defeat, in typical AugustoCrappo style, with dictionary definitions.

You also should offer your apologies for the lack of respect you show. My name is very important to me and I dislike people which try to subvert my name to offend me.

Respect is earned. You have not. In fact, you have earned disrespect. You'll get no apologies from me, AugustoCrappo.

The quote do not show any claim that I said you were equaling fascism to sociopathy. That is the post I used to answer why I was participating in this thread.

Where is the post where I suggested that you were equaling fascism to sociopathy?

Respect is earned. You have not. In fact, you have earned disrespect. You'll get no apologies from me, AugustoCrappo.

Respect is also offered. You are not offering any respect.

Nor will I, Asshole.

Does it make you feel like a big man to insult a defenseless child who is not even part of this conversation? Seriously, Fuck you. I'm done with you for good.

Of course you will not. You are not going to admit that you made a mistake or that you were doing false allegations. Your arrogance is staggering. After all, you still think that you had earned respect by subverting definitions and user names...

I am only offering my respect for you.

Fantastic, if blood-chilling, part 3 of the fascists around you series.  It starts off a little slow, but the second part is simply spot-on and well-paced.

I am impressed.

Easily rivals UPB for his best work.
