    Kakistocracy: You Asked for It 

    Ajit Pai Unmasked Psychopath?

    FCC Chair Ajit Pai Unmasked Psychopath?

    Many have accused FCC Chairman Ajit Pai of being a telecom shill between his background as a former Verizon lawyer and his determination to ignore all public input (not to mention complaints about comment bots) as he kills net neutrality. And apparently, his attempts at joking about it are only reinforcing those views. Gizmodo has obtained video of Pai trying to roast himself at the Federal Communications Bar Association’s annual event, including a pre-recorded skit where an actual Verizon executive (senior VP Kathy Grillo) talks about wanting to “brainwash and groom a Verizon puppet” to become the FCC chairman, with Pai responding that it sounds like an “awesome” idea.

    Aside from the jokes falling flat, there are all kinds of problems with the routine. To start, FCC officials shouldn’t be joking about being shills. Whether or not they have industry backgrounds (like former Chairman Tom Wheeler), they’re supposed to take corruption allegations seriously instead of turning them into comedy sketches. The humor fails in part because there’s a painful degree of truth to it — it wouldn’t have come up if Pai weren’t pursuing the exact deregulation policies that major telecoms want. And crucially, telecom executives shouldn’t ever be involved. If anything, Grillo’s inclusion in the skit supports accusations that Pai is on the take, since he’s clearly cozy enough with Verizon to recruit one of its VPs for a gag.

    For that matter, why would a Verizon executive agree to appear in a skit that makes light of corruption, especially knowing that the video might become public and damage the company’s reputation?

      What an arrogant little pup! But that’s life under Trump. You probably think Ajit is acting like a typical psychopath. To which, I would reply not all bad behavior is indicative of psychopathy. This whole regime is like an alternate “reality,” a dystopian nightmare (or is that a double negative). Thank gods, we still have recourse to legal challenges. That can delay implementation long enough for a new government. Jones’ election in Alabama is a sign the tables are turning. And that arrogant pup, Moore, refusing to concede has got to be for the purpose of letting McConnell delay seating Jones so he can push through that dreadful tax bill before he is seated. I read that a sizeable group of Trump supporters are evangelicals who think Trump was chosen by “God” to bring about Armageddon. So the worse Trump does, the happier they are. They want the world to end. If that isn’t psychotic, it’s pretty damned close. Which is an excellent opportunity for me to point out that people who aren’t psychopaths can do things politically that are as bad if not worse than what a psychopath could do. Instead of testing politicians for psychopathy, maybe we should be testing voters for insanity. (I say this tongue-in-cheek as I know what an impossibly bad idea it would be to test voters. I haven’t forgotten the literacy tests under Jim Crow. I wish I could really think of a way to protect ourselves from crazy voters but, as someone said, “Democracy is a bad form of government but all the others are so much worse.”)

        Anyone can be antisocial and corrupt. It is not necessarily the antisocial political moves that raise my suspicion of psychopathy. It is Ajit Pai’s gloating and glee over his foul actions that appear to be psychopathic.

          You’re probably right there. Non-psychopathic politicians tend to be embarrassed by their own destructive actions. Makes you question what embarrassment / guilt is for when it doesn’t prevent moral shittery.

          Happy Christmas to you both and / or happy hanukkah to Fran.

          I agree.

          Non-psychopathic politicians often see a world that’s heavily colored by their own ideology, then add the fact that people who are good at lying, are also often even better at believing the lies they tell themselves. Behavioral brakes like embarrassment / guilt can be useful to have, but they are even more useful if people take the time to reflect over their own actions sometimes.

            I think that the atmosphere of the political parties makes it into a gang or mafia type of expected loyalty situation. Nobody wants to be outcast, because they will be minimized and their voice will not be heard. The worst people then gain control of the best people in groups like that.

    A Psychopathic Friend Indeed, Part 2 

    To continue our experiment, I just left another mean message on a Facebook advert for Tina’s fundraising initiative. We’re testing to see if “abusive messages” by a known psychopath are enough to sway potential sponsors into rebelling against the abuse and pledging money to the No Psychos cause. I have hopes that this latest stream of nastiness and apparent betrayal will result in an increased interest in donation. Tina was extremely skeptical when we last spoke, so we’re just waiting to see who’s right. If these experiments do work, then it could be something we’d roll out and use more often. The Gofundme initiative has floundered in recent months, failing to attract anything like the donations Tina had hoped for. If you’re reading this and are interested in this experiment, or just want to take pity on the unloved ‘Donate’ button, please do go to https://www.gofundme.com/psychopath and give $5 to an extremely worthy cause. Donations in other currencies are also accepted.

    The post.

    The ugly troll sets to work.

    A Psychopathic Friend Indeed 

    Some people can NEVER be trusted. There are roughly 12 million psychopaths in the U.S. alone – could be your family, friends, coworkers, or politicians. They do not belong in policymaking positions. I am running psychopathy awareness campaigns to teach people how to quickly spot a psychopath.

    WHY???

    Psychopaths do not care about the consequences of their actions on other people. If you are unlucky enough to be associated with one, you have a good chance of being stomped on. A psychopath has no problem smearing your name, slandering you, abandoning you, cheating you, tricking you, or otherwise causing your downfall.

    As if to prove my point – here is an example of my “friend” James posting his disordered drivel to my ad on Facebook.

      I might point out that We can’t keep Them out of the corporation Most call “government…” Psychopaths OWN that corporation (and ALL the “governments” on Our planet), and WE have no say in who THEY SElect for the offices of that corporation. They create the ILLUSION that We have any say. This is why I advocate not consenting to Their rule. As long as We have top-down controlminds, psychopaths WILL find a way to be in control of Us. Far better is to reclaim Our personal sovereignty on OUR planet (stolen from Us by the psychopaths in control through “trusts” and deceit) and consent to ways of operating Human society that promote the CARING Ones to take care of things…

      You CAN trust psychopaths — to be psychopaths. That said, I expect politicians to act on their own self-interest. Let your representative know you won’t vote for hir unless s/he votes the way I want. The problem is people who vote against their own self-interest like working-class folk who voted for Reagan. Since working people outnumber the rich, if we all voted our self-interest, we’d be better off.

        Even if We ALL “voted” for a good Individual, THEY (the owners of the corporation They indoctrinate Us into thinking is Our “government”) will TELL Us We “voted” for the One(s) THEY SElected. Just saying…

      They can’t indoctrinate us unless we let them. Psychopaths are very hard to brainwash or indoctrinate so we are likely to vote more rationally than most. I know they have the whole system rigged but our votes still count as long as we can stop them from gerrymandering too much. With Citizens United, deep pockets have an enormous advantage of financing campaigns. Still, those of us who are still capable of rational thought are not going to zombie-like vote for whoever has the greatest number of commercials. Too much television and a tendency to allow emotions to rule is one of the biggest problems. Of course, the Democratic Party is also partially to blame. The stupid, cynical politicians are their own (and our) worst enemies. They don’t have the guts to trust their own ideology and they keep coming on like Republican-lite. And voters are too hung up on personalities. How else could intellectually bankrupt slogans like “crooked Hillary” have so much power? If Bernie Sanders had been the candidate of the Democratic Party, he would be president today. But Democrats are too busy wresting defeat from the jaws of victory. Sigh! Just don’t trust psychopaths for that.

      Liked own comment to try and keep it here. My rationale is that when I try to approve others’ comments, and it doesn’t let me, liking and replying seems to override the system and approve the comment by default.

        Shite, it didn’t work.

        Pasted from before:

        I am hopeless at computers, but does anyone know why my comments keep disappearing?

        This is my fourth attempt:

        Did I do this right, Tina? I agree with what you said; it will be interesting to see how people on Facebook react. My theory is that the negative attention from a known liar and deviant individual (myself) would work as a kind of reverse psychology, and spur more people to click the link, and donate money.
