What Are Aliens
AP reported 12:38 in the morning June 28th: "Jurors liked Blagojevich, but
didn't believe him." That headline and the tone of the story itself may have
frightened one or more pychopaths at AP. How's that? Though never changing
the URL, the newsstory was rewritten several times as the day wore on.
The first paragraph of the 12:38 story:
"Jurors who convicted Rod Blagojevich of corruption Monday said it wasn't that
they disliked the former Illinois governor. They just didn't believe him."
Psychopaths are ever so likable but commit crimes and the greater crimes not
usually called crimes. Bill Clinton's the model.
The 12:38 newsstory reports (paragraphs 13, 14):
Members of the jury acknowledged that it was difficult to convict the chatty
Blagojevich, who they said they found likable.
"He was personable," the bartender added. "It made it hard to separate that
from what we actually had to do as jurors."
And (paragraphs 18, 19):
Juror No. 149, a mother of three, said she struggled with wanting to acquit
Blagojevich, who has two young daughters.
"I had really tried to find everything I could to find him not guilty, but the
evidence was there," she said.
Let's learn more about psychopaths who are NOT ordinary humans and who are
actually alienated from humanity (in short: aliens).
Beginning at page 368 of *The Mask of Sanity*:
The first and most striking difference is this: In all the orthodox
psychoses...there is a more or less obvious alteration of reasoning processes
or of some other demonstrable personality feature. In the psychopath this is
not seen. The observer is confronted with a convincing mask of sanity. All
the outward features of this mask are intact; it cannot be displaced or
penetrated by questions directed toward deeper personality levels. The
examiner never hits upon the chaos sometimes found on searching beneath the
outer surface of a paranoid schizophrenic. The thought processes retain their
normal aspect under psychiatric investigations and in technical tests
designed to bring out obscure evidence of derangement. Examination reveals
not merely an ordinary two-dimensional mask but what seems to be a solid and
substantial structural image of the sane and rational personality. He might
then be thought of, in the full literal sense, as an example of what Trélat
meant to designate by his expressive term, la folie lucide.
Furthermore, this personality structure in all theoretical [verbal] situations
functions in a manner apparently identical with that of normal, sane
functioning. Logical thought processes may be seen in perfect operation no
matter how they are stimulated or treated under experimental conditions.
Furthermore, the observer finds verbal and facial expressions, tones of voice,
and all the other signs we have come to regard as implying conviction and
emotion and the normal experiencing of life as we know it ourselves and as we
assume it to be in others. All judgments of value and emotional appraisals
are sane and appropriate when the Psychopath is tested in verbal examinations.
Only very slowly and by a complex estimation or judgment based on
multitudinous small impressions does the conviction come upon us that, despite
these intact rational processes, these normal emotional affirmations, and
their consistent application in all directions, we are dealing here not with a
complete man at all but with something that suggests a subtly constructed
reflex machine which can mimic the human personality perfectly. This smoothly
operating psychic apparatus reproduces consistently not only specimens of
good human reasoning but also appropriate simulations of normal human emotion
in response to nearly all the varied stimuli of life. So perfect is this
reproduction of a whole and normal man that no one who examines him in a
clinical setting can point out in scientific or objective terms why, or how,
he is not real.
And yet we eventually come to know or feel we know that reality, in the sense
of full, healthy experiencing of life, is not here. Fortunately for the
purpose of this discussion, but unfortunately indeed in any other light, an
objective demonstration is available which coincides perfectly with our
slowly emerging impression. The psychopath, however perfectly he mimics man
theoretically, that is to say, when he speaks for himself in words, fails
altogether when he is put into the practice of actual living. His failure is
so complete and so dramatic that it is difficult to see how such a failure
could be achieved by anyone less defective than a downright madman* or by a
person totally or almost totally unable to grasp emotionally the major
components of meaning or feeling implicit in the thoughts that he expresses or
the experiences he appears to go through. In the actions of his living,
then, he confirms our subjective impression, or it might be said that our
surmise coincides with the objective and demonstrable facts.
* This violent and unfortunate term I use with apology but cannot spare here
because of its clear-cut emphasis.
During my early observation of psychopaths that preceded publication of the
first edition of this book in 1941, I was so much impressed with the degree of
maladjustment in these patients that I felt at the time, and said, they
should be called psychotic. Subsequent consideration led me long ago to
change this opinion and to find myself in complete accord with Richard L.
Jenkins who in 1960 wrote:
"Hervey Cleckley, in The Mask of Sanity, expresses the belief that the
psychopathic personality is a psychosis not technically demonstrable,
maximally concealed by an outer surface of intact function and manifested only
"The disagreement I would express with this intriguing definition is that, to
me, it strains the concept of psychosis past the breaking point. A psychosis
is a major mental disorder. A psychopathic personality shows not a disorder
of personality but rather a defect of personality, together with a set of
defenses evolved around that defect. The defect relates to the most central
element of the human personality: its social nature. The psychopath is simply
a basically asocial or antisocial individual who has never achieved the
developed nature of homo domesticus."
There is another important point against classifying the psychopath's grave
defect with the psychoses. Though I believe he is in degree as maladjusted
for leading an acceptable life as the psychotic patient, I do not believe
there are similar reasons to consider him legally irresponsible or morally
blameless for the frauds he perpetrates and the crimes he may commit.
Let us then assume, as a hypothesis, that the psychopath's disorder, or
defect, or his difference from the whole or normal or integrated personality
consists of an unawareness and a persistent lack of ability to become aware of
what the most important experiences of life mean to others. By this is not
meant an acceptance of the arbitrarily postulated values of any particular
theology, ethics, esthetics, or philosophic system, or any special set of
mores or ideologies, but rather the common substance of emotion or purpose, or
whatever else one chooses to call it, from which the various loyalties,
goals, fidelities, commitments, and concepts of honor and responsibility of
various groups and various people are formed.*
* A vast difference exists, of course, between what various persons regard as
good or beautiful or desirable. John Locke observed that "those who are
canonized as saints among the Turks lead lives that we cannot with modesty
here relate." "An apple by Paul Cezanne is of more consequence artistically
than the head of a Madonna by Raphael," is the initial sentence in a well-
known work on painting. In contrast with all the various diversities of
degrees of conviction found among ordinary people, the so-called psychopath
seems to hold no real viewpoint at all and to be free of any sincere convicton
in what might be called either good or evil.
Such are the psychopaths who are NOT ordinary humans and who are actually
alienated from humanity (in short: aliens).
ALIENS ARE THOSE WHO WAGE UNJUST WAR AGAINST HUMANS
THAT WAR AGAINST HUMANS IS ONE KIND OF TERRORISM
HUMANS ARE THOSE WHO WAGE JUST WAR AGAINST ALIENS
THAT WAR AGAINST ALIENS IS ANOTHER KIND OF TERRORISM
THE HUMAN KIND OF TERRORISM IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE ALIEN KIND OF
THE HUMAN KIND OF TERRORISM WIPES OUT ALIENS
THE ALIEN KIND OF TERRORISM WIPES OUT HUMANS

The following indicates aliens at work:
"The label 'psychopath' as used by Cleckley had been embraced by popular
culture, and is often applied to serial killers and other violent criminals,
irrespective of whether they qualify (although most serial killers do); for
this reason the imprecise popular use had been deplored. Therefore, although
in popular culture the term is common, it had little relevance to criminology,
forensic psychology or psychiatry." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mask_of_Sanity#Legacy
