Fishead: Are Political And Corporate Leaders Psychopaths?

Created on Friday, 16 March 2012 15:45

Who, or what, is a psychopath? Unlike Hollywood’s stereotypical image they are not always blood-thirsty monsters from slasher movies. 

The medical definition is simple: A psychopath is a person who lacks empathy and conscience, the qualities that guide sane human beings when they have to choose between good and evil, moral and immoral. Most of us are conditioned to do good things. Psychopaths are not. Their impact on society is staggering yet altogether psychopaths barely make up one percent of the population.

Through interviews with renowned psychologist Professor Philip Zimbardo, leading expert on psychopathy Professor Robert Hare, former President of Czech Republic and playwright Vaclav Havel, authors Gary Greenberg and Christopher Lane, professor Nicholas Christakis, among numerous other thinkers, this film delves into the world of psychopaths and heroes and reveals shocking implications for us and our society.
