"Proud To Be a Sociopath" Suggests "John Temple"
"Proud To Be a Sociopath" Suggests "John Temple"
In response to one of the Dysamoria articles written by Jace Cavacini, we received a "comment" that chilled me to the bone (if this "Not Verified" commentator is to be taken seriously).
The story was: "Do Sociopaths Deserve Humane Treatment?"
Here is what "John Temple (Not Verified)" had to say about sociopathy and human development:

What I'm tired of in this and all other blogs about peoplw whining aboutm sociopaths and the damage they do. These people are weak and deserve their pain. Only a fool takes to their hearts what others say, the only value you have is what you believe you have. Sociopaths aren't a disease they are the next step. Imagine a world not bound by petty morality, a world where everyone looked out for themselves. None of this help thy neighbor crap thats so prominet today. Everyone striving to be the best to be dominant. Thats the only true route to strength. Sociopaths are the future. they don't need help. You should learn from these people, this next step in evolution. Guilt is a chain that binds us, emotions the noose around our neck."
Hard to read, isn’t it? More importantly, does this kind of thinking make you cozy or creeped out?
Are you proud of yourself, John Temple?
Dear readers, would you hire this kind of "person" to work at your company? Would you hire someone who talks this way in public to sit your children or even wash your car?
Would you be proud to be friends with John Temple knowing that he would be using you, every step of the way, to benefit himself and throw you away at the first moment that it suits or pleases him?
What kind of human being even says things like this “John Temple (Not Verified)” in public forums?
I'll tell you:
Anonymous people who want to influence the thinking of others. Sway minds. Make declarations without reciprocity or consequence. Cowards. The insecure. People who are paranoid of being seen as anything other than what they prefer.

@ John Temple:
the only value you have is the value others believe you have. but the value you have in yourself influences the opinion of others, so highly valuing yourself may result in a gain in real value.
this is why sociopaths are so dangerous to society. they understand this and they use their charisma to manipulate communities to their personal advantage. and american cultural structures reward this sort of behavior. historically, major advances in society have been a result of communities banding together against a common enemy, not individuals competing against individuals. as individuals, we are pathetically weak.
if you were truly concerned with your personal strength and placed no stock in the opinions others have about you, you wouldn't waste your time posting comments such as this. the only thing you have to gain is the satisfaction of stepping on someone else to help yourself up. this is not a trait of someone strong. this is the tactic of the true weak and insecure.
and fyi, you could use a little guilt, my friend. if your day to day actions are at all reflected in the attitude of this post, you have much to feel guilty for.
although this comment has been addressed to John Temple, it is written for every reader BUT him. Temple's hateful comments do not deserve a response, but readers who may have responded to his gruff display of chest pounding with anger or fear deserve to see the little man that lies behind the curtain.
Here was my (Intransitivus) response, far less elegant…

I hope John Temple's employers and family notice his comment here. I'm somewhat sure that they would not take well to his anti-social sociopathy-praising attitude - especially his employers...
John Temple is a sociopath?
John Temple seems to be saying he is a sociopath.
John Temple is praising sociopathy.
John Temple must be a sociopath.
John Temple is a 15-year-old kid, striking out at a society that has wronged him by NOT being the "help thy neighbor" society it claims to be, and John Temple thinks he will succeed in besting that anti-society by being a prime example of sociopathy. John Temple is seemingly suggesting that he is and will be a selfish, self-aggrandizing and cruel creature, crushing and standing on the backs of those he uses to climb and scrape his way to what he thinks is the top of the pile.
Congratulations, John Temple the sociopath.
What makes this news?
Commentators have several times copied and pasted templates on Dysamoria stories about why the stories “Need Work.” These people are often too lazy to write up an actual personal review or comment. Luckily, not all commentators do this. It’s actually not the norm, but it reminds me of John Temple’s ease of quickly dispensing what he wants people to think without doing the work; no effort or justification. Often, they use the template which suggests the four W’s… What, when, where, why.
There are anonymous cowards reveling in, and showing support for, the behavior of anti-social personality disorders such as the worst of them all: sociopathy. These people are trying to make it seem they have supporters among their kind and are the future of humanity (but clearly not society, as anti-social indicates inability to maintain societal linkages). NowPublic is being used by nameless cowards to spread filth and the kind of behavior that tears apart societies.
Here, on NowPublic.com. On the Internet. In our social circles. In our societies. At our places of business, worship, dinning establishments and homes.
Constantly. See John Temple’s posting date. They are most often seen when they act out their insecurity (like John Temple) or sense of power (like middle management). They show themselves in "public" places while hidden by anonymity. They act out in "private" places, such as your boss’ office when she is berating you (it’s only the two of you and only one side of the story is likely to be believed by upper management).
When they think they can get away with it, as is the norm for sociopathic behavior.
Because minds can be swayed with sometimes the simplest of words, the simple (or in the case of sociopaths, overly complicated) minded will speak up, through anonymity (which is their right), hoping that their quick blurt of “profound passionate outpouring” will gather attention and make forces swing in their preferred direction.
Sociopaths cannot keep friends or maintain social order, so it is curious to see this John Temple’s posting which suggests sociopaths are the future of humanity. "John Temple (Not Verified)" clearly has no clinical (or other) understanding of what sociopathy is.
Those of you reading (really, actually thinking while reading these articles) are getting information that Not Verified John Temple seems to shut his/her/its eyes and ears to.
This is good for you and bad for them..
Why is this news?
It is disclosure.
It is exposure.
Amongst us are those who would see all of us used and disposed of as it befits their climb to the top of whatever food-chain they seek to be supreme ruler over. Some climbs stop at middle management, others go all the way to the top...
Why make this a news item?
To ask you, readers, to exercise critical and constructive thinking instead of hypocritical and destructive knee-jerk burps.
Next time you read a sloppily and hastily written “argument,” do take a few minutes to consider the source and respond to them so they know what they’ve accomplished (something, little, nothing, lots, whatever).
I did, just now.
What did you accomplish John Temple (Not Verified)?
You made me speak out against your kind, make specific note of YOU, and point out that your "argument" is fundamentally flawed, like yourself.
I chose to make our (Dysamoria) analyses of such commentators public and, hopefully, noteworthy and newsworthy.
Some commentators argue with their faces in view (thank you) and we respond (hopefully they see the responses). Others hide with false but verified member names (that's ok, Intransitivus or Dysamoria isn't exactly my real name, is it?) and we also respond.
Some people cannot even bother to be a member of this community but still have to spout off, trying to poison it with their poorly thought and "worsely typed" spitting. Well, I respond to their kind as well. Sometimes in a big way.
The point is, we’re here (all of us who post on NowPublic.com with verified member identities) to interact with a social group, hoping to share information with each other and to bridge the gaps between social groups... not to pull societies apart with petty self aggrandizing behavior.
