The sociopath next door

A disturbing but useful article that changed my opinion about people as a whole. Doing whatever you want with no guilt seems like it would be a kind of paradise, but it seems more like a trap.

Note that something this article doesn't clarify is that if someone lies chronically, it can be a symptom of a whole spectrum of mental or emotional problems, not necessarily because they are as morally corrupt as the people this article references.
