Trouble is PSYCHOPATHS rule the world , the very small but pathologically aggressive few who through their intelligence, sheer lack of remorse and dis-inhibited, egotistical traits , find the sociopathic nature of capitalism conducive to the mental disorder, which by its design provides a breeding ground and rewards for this dangerous mental disorder.

The fact that one individual possess the disproportional power of billions dollars or more as in the case of the Walton Family of Walmart fame whose net worth is 130 thousand million dollars (130 billion) or the Koch Brothers 100 thousand million dollars (100 billion), should be a cause of extreme concern to all societies. Instead of reducing taxes on these individuals as the 'drain the swamp' Trump government intend to do at the expense of the elderly , the disabled, children and health care, SOCIETY should be capping or taxing these individuals into proportion with the rest of fellow citizens.

The wealth of these individuals should be CAPPED to protect OUR society from anyone having disproportional power , that individuals with such wealth are capable of being menace to OUR society and should be treated as such.

One way to stop much of the millionaire and billionaire criminal activity is to tax their wealth at high taxation rates, this would force these normally greedy sociopathic individuals who own most of the businesses to pay higher wages, give employee benefits, create better working conditions, spiff's like company cars and paid vacations, free health care like they did at 1950's under the ninety percent taxation rate of the republican Presidency of Dwight D Eisenhower government. Because we ALL know these individuals would rather give away the money than give to the government.

One of the reasons our runaway global warming can be traced back to the these wealthy oligarchy is the LACK of proper fair and equitable taxation. Right now there is a mad rush by these wealthy individuals to stuff the bank accounts at ALL costs before the looming HOT HOUSE catastrophe, before mass hysteria desperate people and military rule is imposed on ALL of us to keep some form of order.

These guys, like Trump, are pillagers.

Time to get the pitchforks and tax codes sharpened to curtail their reckless impacts on people and the environment. They threaten the existence of the human race, and that is no joke with the climate crisis.

To quote ​The Psychopath Next Door, by Martha Stout:

​"According to the current bible of psychiatric labels, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV​ of the American Psychiatric Association, the clinical diagnosis of "antisocial personality disorder" should be considered when an individual demonstrates at least three of the following seven charicteristics:

1) failure to conform to social norms;

2) deceitfulness, manipulativeness;

3) impulsivity, failure to plan ahead;

4) irritability, aggressiveness;

5) reckless disregard for the safety of self or others;

6) consistent irresponsibility;

7) lack of remorse after having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another person.

The presence in an individual of any three of these "symptoms," taken together, is enough to make many psychiatrists suspect the disorder."

When I take a look at Trump, I see a perfect score of seven.

He is a slam-dunk PSYCHOPATH.

"He (Trump)is a slam-dunk PSYCHOPATH." Kinda scary to think an American PSYCHO holds the codes to the nuclear arsenal and at a whim could wipe out all humanity. Also speaks volumes how ruthless and dangerous these republicans are that they would play Russian roulette with the welfare of OUR world to carry out the agenda of the 1/10 of one percent of the wealthiest Americans in the country. They are prepared to RISK bringing the Temple down on all our heads if they don't get their way.

The president of the largest motor company in the world Toyota purposefully only takes $150,000 salary per year. In a news interview he said he could easily take million dollar packages like many of the other CEOs of auto manufacturers do but he would rather see all the profits go back into the company to secure a bigger and better future for it. What we need in America is a philosophy like that applied universally across the board to everything from profit corporations to nonprofit no one should make over $150,000 a year make all the rest of the money go back to the government and redistribute it for eliminating the great income divide. Let's start to make companies employee-owned. How is it that a pro sports player goes to college for 4 years and ends up making six million a year; whereas, a teacher or a social worker goes to college for 4 years and they get 35k!!! The system is corrupt. DC is corrupt. All people should have the salary of congress representatives and the same healthcare system. People on Social Security can not even afford a used car. Jobs in China has helped the world. 30 years ago a small microwave oven cost about $ at stores its under $50. However the auto, motorcycle industry have skyrocketed prices to 18k. A disabled person on SSDI only gets around $735 a month to live on. The system is broke. We don't need more military ships. Legalize and tax drugs. Marijuana is not a drug. It's a green plant that freely grows without mans help. In Ohio medicaid will pay $600 a month for a Ohio based drug called Invokana that causes deadly side affects and is being sued. Yet Ohio will not give that same person more than $21 in foodstamp help. The system is designed to make money and kill off the population.

Quote "What we need in America is a philosophy like that applied universally across the board to everything from profit corporations to nonprofit"

Randall Paul i couldn't agree more , trouble is the evil of these right wing sociopaths are always two steps ahaead of us, right now the Koch brothers have the ideological tentacles in Americas universities were they have offered much needed funding in the millions, but at a price, the old 'deal with the devil', whereas the Koch's for their money get to dictate cirriculum and who teaches it. The devil has his hands in the minds of young intelligent impressionable students.

As for the executive of Toyota taking a salary of $150,000 per year, to the japanese honor is everything, American businessmen don't even know what honor is and most likely can't spell it.

The fact he has his tiny hands on the codes is not that serious. Trump is not trump alone. He has advisors and that is how all presidents operate. They say the Pope is not the only pope. That there is a hidden system behind that calls all the shots. The Roman Catholic church...Vatican is the richest organization in the world. They probably have more wealth than all the billionaires. The Secret Service supposedly has them in the top 20 watch list for laundering drug money. I think that is how trump keeps getting rich after 4 bankruptcies. He launders drug money. And who knows what else!? The fact he is a cheat at business should disqualify anyone from seeking public office. He is a crook and a elected to manage the most powerful nations money system. 30 years ago "60 Minutes" news show exposed the military wastes billions of dollars. Example: They pay $700 for one hammer that costs $7 at Home Depot. Where is the $693 extra cash going? Into Trump hotels pockets!!!. The military may buy 10,000 hammers. That is just one of a million things the Pentagon buys. There must be $Trillions going into the chain of commands pockets under the table or through back doors. If that is how corrupt the system do we not know that Trumps Mar-A-Lago club is not a clearing house for drug running associates? Is Trump flying in 100s of pounds of herion on Airforce One? This is why only squeaky clean canidates should be allowed to run for any political office. The codes to the nukes are the least of the worries. He is a crook and should have been banned from running. How does anyone get away with fraud and not do jail time? That's ludicrous. Martha Stewart went to prison...Trump skipped out. Are 100s of judges paid off? They say Chicago politicians are corrupt. Well at least in Illinois they put criminally elected officals in prison. In DC they put them in the White House!!

Excellent reply. These Trumpers are old school. They think like Archie Bunker on the TV show All In The Family...."Commies are all God haters and pinko fag queers!" and I can't get them to think that Jesus and the early church lived commune style. The word community is closely linked to communism. Plus they think Socialism will raise taxes on the middle class. What they dont realize is 90% of society is socialized already and its a success.

It may be depicted that way in the movies, but in real life, and in my experience, they are heterogeneous in their business dealings. The Toyota CEO is an exception, rather than necessarily the rule. Just keeping it real.
