Beautiful Sociopath
American Thinker, by Glenn Fairman

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 3/1/2013 8:23:29 AM

Upon first gazing upon her, Jodi Arias appears to be a lovely young woman. She has that endearing charm and welcoming smile one sees in the carefree countenance of twenty-somethings whose world lies before them like an oyster. Speaking glibly and with unaffected confidence to interviewers, she draws in her audience as a skilled angler lands a catch -- without seeming strained or calculating in her mannerisms. That being said, one therefore would be hard pressed to believe that she is on trial in Maricopa County, Ariz. for murdering her ex-lover as brutally as any Taliban warrior ever could.

Psychopathic murderer.

But she sounds exactly like Jay Carney at one of his press conferences.

I don´y know the clinical definition of sociopath but the laymans definition is simply someone who while not inherently malicious has no empathy towards others and no conscience or regard to the consequences of ill treatment of others. (a psychopath would be someone with similar traits but with the added trait of malice).

Using that definition I have known several "sociopaths", I am sure we all have run into these people. They have been refined, charming and social successes to a one. Absolutely scary because they can be your best freind one second and simply dispose of you the next.

In this age of instant implied intamacy, loose morals and endless "connectivity" we are depersonalizing almost all of our relationships. The first step to sociopathic behaviour is to desocialize, to view others almost in the abstract. As an example; we all here on Lucianne relate to each other only by anonymous pen names. It is very easy to see only the pen name and discount the person behind it. Trash one of these abstract personas and you have lost nothing of real value and they will soon be replaced by another persona completely devoid of a human presence.

The law of unintended consequences, in trying to connect to everyone on the planet to each other and in an effort to have endless access to all kinds of information (both public and private) we have created a very fertile environment for nurturing sociopaths.

She is evil, but hardly beautiful. She has a snout for a nose - look at her photo. And she lies/equivocates during testimony much like an almost ex wife at a divorce hearing.
If she is convicted for first degree murder, she will appeal based on ineffective counsel (her attorney should not have put her on the stand, the argument will be) and the appeals and perhaps a re-trial will take decades.

I watched about an hour altogether of this woman and she is a pathological liar. The prosecutor had her on the stand for a long time and this killer cannot even keep her story straight - she is not going over well with the jurors. Also, she changed her looks quite a bit - thinking, I believe that if she is homely people will feel sorry for her. Hope she gets the chair and not a nice soft one in a living room.

I´m surprised that #3 thinks of other posters as only a pen name. For myself, I visualize the other posters as real people, and I even see what they look like in my mind. To me, they are real and not just anonymous non-humans. I may be wrong in my assumptions of who they actually are, but every one of them is a living, breathing, individual person.

#3 makes an interesting observation, one I have seen time and time again on various bulletin boards and things. Personally, I dont understand it. Behind each and every pen name here and elsewhere is a real live person. Most of those people I would probably like if I knew them in real life. I cannot imagine intentionally hurting them, even if it is just feelings. The exception to that is persistent trolls, of course.

All that aside, one of my idols as a teen was none other than Wolfman Jack on the radio. He said you should always marry an ugly girl, because chances are she wont leave you, and if she does who cares?

We have seen some of Fox´s incessant coverage of this trial. We have seen no "endearing charm and welcoming smile". Rather we have seen a cold, calculating woman who can go "toe to toe" (as one newser put it) with the prosecutor who has drawn flak from liberals for being too tough.

She has deliberately gone from a bleached blonde playgirl to a mousy Miss Gooch. And changed her story a gazillion times.

If she gets off it will be like the Anthony travesty.

Yeah, I wondered about that myself #6. I have seen pictures of her with the dead boyfriend and she is quite attractive. Uglying up is not a good tactic. See Amanda Knox trial for an example. The Italian headlines called her foxy Knoxy and she seems to have gotten away with her crime. Jodi´s lawyer is an idiot. Jodi Arias has an inordinate amount of rage inside her judging by the type and amount of wounds the dead guy suffered.

The amateur psychologists´ parsing of these evil people - tossing around the current jargon like "sociopath" and "narcissist" without knowing fully what they mean - has made it easier for these seriously flawed people to evade the justice they and their victims deserve.

The person who made the film "Fatal Attraction" did a better job.

Yes, she´s an evil murderer but #2 went too far, comparing her to Jay Carney. You ought to apologize to Ms. Arias.

Yes, she´s very attractive. Not getting why some don´t think so. As one poster put it, she changes her appearance to suit the situation. The Amanda Knox comparison is good. I´ve seen her look very attractive in some photos, not so much in others.

Everyone I have heard discussing this says she is creepy-looking with that detached flat affect. Her nasty manipulative behavior with the prosecutor merely helped prove THEIR case, did it not? The photos of the victim in the shower looking at her before the murder were...haunting. I pray she gets the maximum.

Amanda Knox is not a good comparison, I followed every minute of that trial and the drama loving Italian press and the corrupt police and justice system set her up. She will never have a normal life just because she was smiling - so American. Let´s just pray that the jury will follow the facts and put this killer in a dark prison for life. You know if they give her the death penalty - it will never happen take place in most of our our life times.

Pure unalloyed evil holds a certain morbid fascination, at least when one is far enough removed from the scene of the crime and unrelated to the victims. The psychopath Jodi Arias (whose case I have been following in various Arizona newspapers) fell upon her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander with appalling Mansonian fury, leaving him in a condition similar to that of the Tate-LaBianca murder victims. Like the Atlanta child killer Wayne Williams, Arias managed to keep her true inner self under wraps until a skillful prosecutor (Juan Martinez) removed her mask.

In his conclusion the article´s author Glenn Fairman writes, "Modern civilization, however, has the profound ability to silence that still small voice within us all with the vulgar scream of alienation and self-adulation that characterizes its own peculiar manifestation of Existential Man." Or, in other words, I commit murder, therefore I am. (And the object of my fury is no more, as planned.) No doubt modern civilization desensitizes people, but the seeds of evil were already there in human nature from the time of Cain and Abel, or, if you prefer, from the Fall in the Garden. Fortunately, most people have that inner brake that keeps them from succumbing to evil, even if the thought crosses their minds. For the rest, there is punishment, and Ms. Arias might end up on a hot date with the executioner.

The late great blues singer Bessie Smith recorded "Send Me to the ´Lectric Chair" in 1927. I think you´ll like this topical song.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/17/2014 10:02:46 AM     Post Reply
For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
