Psychopaths

I have realized after reading “More and Better Psychopaths” that they all stole, all killed, and all went to jail. Each expected to escape some way or another. The definition of being a psychopath is a person suffering with chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behavior. I found this weird because now a days this literally could be anyone since so many people are being diagnosed with mental disorders and everyone is different socially.

One thought on “Psychopaths

  1. So do you think Mencken is right? Are we far too lenient? Is the New Penology a fact of life now?

    Also, how does the idea of the psychopath change as we discussed in class last night over time? -particularly in relationship to the movies and pop culture more generally.
