Why there is evil in the world

Reader comment on item: The Snipers: Crazy or Jihadis?

Submitted by Deborah Hoger (United States), Oct 29, 2002 at 18:13

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I am presently in the process of writing a most timey book, "Mark of the Beast", which I hope to have published this year and I am diligently working away at this most necessary endeavor to finally and completely address why there is Evil in this World.

Crazy/Jihadis equals sociopathic/psychopathic personality disorder. Different names for the same thing.

In my extensive research, initially started years ago, I focused on Alcoholism/drug addiction in the United States compared to its European counter part.

Sociopathic disorder is complete, irrevocable insanity. This anti-social personality disorder has the following symptoms. no conscience, no accountability, excessive personalities in all they do, narcisstic, they do not know the difference between right and wrong, they can turn on a victim without giving any sign they are going to turn, their attack would be swift and deadly.

Sociopathic disorder is hereditary and it is common. What psychiatrists do NOT know is why they begin to kill. They go thru life, completely insane, whether they kill or not, and are generally the ones law enforcement label as "repeat offenders". They are pedophiles, sexual addicts, rapists, alcoholic-drug abusers, woman-male abusers, child abusers, murderers and serial murderers. This disorder knows no racial, gender or economic boundaries.

The psychopath knows the difference between right and wrong but will do wrong anyway. Those who display this malady are capable of great violence, even genocide. Many believe that Adolph Hitler was a sociopath.

All terrorist groups recruit people with this affliction, because they are capable and willing to commit crimes against humanity. This is what this current world conflict is about. It isn't about religion or race, it is about the sociopathic/psychopathic personality.

If a person can be convinced to kill themselves, that is one thing. To be a personality, ready, willing and able to kill themselves along with hundreds or thousands of others requires the committment of an anti-social personality.

How is it that ANY Mother could send her son or daughter on a mission to kill as many Jews as possible and then celebrate in the streets when they complete their dastardly deed? Antisocial! ... Exhiling a sociopath or psychopath is not the answer. .. Remember Aafat was exhiled to Tunisia and tossed out of Egypt. ..
