Ladies and Gentlemen, Evil Exists: The Lack of Empathy in People with High Positions of Power

Here are my beginning thoughts. For this semi-brief post, I was thinking about profiling (cross-profiling?) some of the most evil people in current history, that are still alive or have affected the United States in correlation with the World within the past 3 to 4 presidencies / wars. I'll try to find some scholarly research, although, I have already read quite a bit about several people...

"Ladies and gentlemen, evil exists...


...and ya know, it's one thing to have a lack of empathy. There is nothing wrong with that. But when a person's actions are based on this lack of empathy we start to see problems. Anybody can change. And to try to change might as well be considered change. But to refuse to change when it is grossly apparent that one's actions are negatively affecting millions of people, to refuse to change when there are better alternatives that are being shot down in favor of a 'corpulent' outcome, the refusal to uphold a moral and ethical RESPONSIBILITY that comes with POWER, ladies and gentlemen, THAT is evil."
