Oh wow. I was familiar with Sam Vaknin, because I'd read the story about a doctor who accidentally discovered he was a psychopath at the same time he identified a particular brain wiring for psychopathy. (At least I'm pretty sure we're talking about the same person.)

What I *didn't* know was everything after that. His position that psychopathy is a positive adaptation to capitalism, etc. This is fascinating and horrifying, and I'm interested to learn more. Thanks for sharing.
