Alt Left: Psychopathy and Corruption in Business and Politics

This post was written by commenter Manuel Rodriguez, a great comrade from Venezuela.


Last year, I did a small essay of sorts about psychopathy and the Left. It’s still a work in progress, but this is my general idea:

I’m not sure how it is in other countries, but I noticed here in Venezuela that people who become politicians, no matter how small the office, tend to be socially charming and highly extroverted in a specific way. They in general seem to have very strong social climbing needs and capabilities.

What I propose is that corruption arises from Cluster B and Dark Triad people getting rewarding political positions. I see a similar dynamic in private companies with individuals easily climbing the ladder in the business and then ruining the business by thievery, so it’s not unreasonable that a similar situation happens in the public sphere.

What do you think?
