This web page describes a book about the dangers of psychopaths to democratic societies and even civilization. It was created after I noticed that the Amazon.com web site where the book was for sale omitted a page (in their LookInside section) that was politically incorrect: (page 69).
This was my first
evidence for "trouble ahead." When I submitted a Second Edition
of the book it didn't show up at Amazon.com to replace the First
Edition (still hasn't), and several inquiries elicited silly
explanations. I suspect that this book has been categorized as
"politically incorrect," and Amazon may withdraw it from sale at
some near-future date. I therefore am making it available at
this web page as a free downloadable PDF document. I'm not
writing for the money, but out of a sense of concern for trends
that threaten democracy (in the near-term) and possibly
civilization (in the long-term).
I will present images of the Introduction and the first page of each chapter. An abstract for the book is at the bottom of this web page, along with a link for a free PDF download of the book.
