Just read an article.
I find it so entertaining that I want to share it with you. Enjoy!

“Politicians are more likely than people in the general population to be sociopaths. I think you would find no expert in the field of sociopathy/psychopathy/antisocial personality disorder who would dispute this… That a small minority of human beings literally have no conscience was and is a bitter pill for our society to swallow — but it does explain a great many things, shamelessly deceitful political behavior being one.” — Dr. Martha Stout, clinical psychologist and former instructor at Harvard Medical School

Twenty years ago, a newspaper headline asked the question: “What’s the difference between a politician and a psychopath?”

The answer, then and now, remains the same: None.

There is no difference between psychopaths and politicians.

Nor is there much of a difference between the havoc wreaked on innocent lives by uncaring, unfeeling, selfish, irresponsible, parasitic criminals and elected officials who lie to their constituents, trade political favors for campaign contributions, turn a blind eye to the wishes of the electorate, cheat taxpayers out of hard-earned dollars, favor the corporate elite, entrench the military industrial complex, and spare little thought for the impact their thoughtless actions and hastily passed legislation might have on defenseless citizens.

Psychopaths and politicians both have a tendency to be selfish, callous, remorseless users of others, irresponsible, pathological liars, glib, con artists, lacking in remorse and shallow.

Charismatic politicians, like criminal psychopaths, exhibit a failure to accept responsibility for their actions, have a high sense of self-worth, are chronically unstable, have socially deviant lifestyles, need constant stimulation, have parasitic lifestyles and possess unrealistic goals.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about Democrats or Republicans.

Political psychopaths are all largely cut from the same pathological cloth, brimming with seemingly easy charm and boasting calculating minds. Such leaders eventually create pathocracies: totalitarian societies bent on power, control, and destruction of both freedom in general and those who exercise their freedoms.

Once psychopaths gain power, the result is usually some form of totalitarian government or a pathocracy. “At that point, the government operates against the interests of its own people except for favoring certain groups,” author James G. Long notes. “We are currently witnessing deliberate polarizations of American citizens, illegal actions, and massive and needless acquisition of debt. This is typical of psychopathic systems, and very similar things happened in the Soviet Union as it overextended and collapsed.”

Good question. Normally we do not use this word in business English.

You'd better launch your fountain of Business English wisdom soon, or it might be too late.

Unfortunately this is not business English but this video could be used to teach general English because it greatly arouses interest of anyone learning English. This video is in line with my concept of teaching business English

I suggest Mustang rereads my article ONE THOUSAND times and then and only then he will gain the wisdom that came to me long time ago. It is very very important that during the exercize of reading he should be keeping his arms in certain position. Otherwise the wisdom might not come to him.

Yes of course I can describe it to you and why wouldn't I want to share my wisdom with you? But the problem is that keeping a certain arms posisiton is not enough. One has to attain a very specifiс mental attitude. This one has to be mastered as well.

You know why I beat around the bush? Because administrator of this forum does not allow me to publish the web address of my original article. This does get me offended. So why should I waste my time on all of you and throw beads? Thank you. I am not interested.

I have no apropriate response to that ludicrous answer.

The guy reminds me of someone from the real efl.ru. We actually collectively called him "a cockroach" cuz the cock (short for a cockroach, of course) was an ego-driven megalomaniac cussing everone who disagreed with him. The only thing he was truly afraid of was Nina's imaginary slipper but now there's no one to stop him - he's running loose on the forum pretending to be a big shot making godzilions of dollars.

Our little buddy is really on another level now, not only is he "laundering embezzled money" but he is also trying "to sell" non-existent language learning courses to the gullible.

By the way if any of you have any busnessmen among your students or pupils then you could tell them that you know a guy who assists clients with foreign company incorporations as well as assisting them with opening bank accounts and solving any other problems connected with international tax planning. My main advantage is low prices. My competitors prices and fees are much higher. If you introduce me to any paying client I would pay you commission as soon as he or she places an order with me for any offshore or onshore tax planning service. This is a real chance for you to make a quick buck if you have access to such people of course.
