Are rich people psychopaths? Yes.

As instructed by my mentor Chomsky try to use the most conservative source to prove your point:

Beannie Slanders is rich...

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

How much money does one need to have to be considered rich?

I think I saw figures on this before and it's pretty much nonsense, CEOs are more likely to be psychopaths but it's something like rather than 1 in ten thousand, it's 4 in ten thousand. There aren't that many CEOs out there, nevermind CEOs of massively successful companies.

I think the appropriate term for rich people is "eccentric".

Recent research suggests that lower-class individuals favor explanations of personal and political outcomes that are oriented to features of the external environment. We extended this work by testing the hypothesis that, as a result, individuals of a lower social class are more empathically accurate in judging the emotions of other people. In three studies, lower-class individuals (compared with upper-class individuals) received higher scores on a test of empathic accuracy (Study 1), judged the emotions of an interaction partner more accurately (Study 2), and made more accurate inferences about emotion from static images of muscle movements in the eyes (Study 3). Moreover, the association between social class and empathic accuracy was explained by the tendency for lower-class individuals to explain social events in terms of features of the external environment. The implications of class-based patterns in empathic accuracy for well-being and relationship outcomes are discussed.

People from higher socioeconomic classes do worse on a test where they’re asked to identify emotions in photographs of human faces. They’re also less accurate at perceiving the emotional states of others in real-life interactions. In fact, researchers can reduce people’s empathy just by prompting them to think of themselves as relatively high-status. Test subjects who are asked to imagine an interaction with someone from a lower social rung get worse at understanding other people’s emotions. The trouble higher-status people have recognizing emotions is tied to the fact that they tend to think about themselves and others in terms of fixed traits (“She’s a nervous person.”) In contrast, people from lower social classes are more likely to use contextual explanations for people’s behavior (“This interview is making her uncomfortable.”)

I found it interesting that they've found that rich people have a much more difficult time identifying emotions. And that they tend to think in terms of fixed traits, rather than external events impacting actions. Is that what I'm doing wrong??? Hmmph, at this rate, I'll never be rich! lol

Then there is this article which states rich people and psychopaths have 7 traits in common:

https://www.businessinsid...ths-2015-3

1. Lack of empathy
2. Egotism
3. Superficial charm
4. Lack of remorse
5. Selfishness
6. Unethical behavior
7. Prone to boredom

(That sounds like someone...can't imagine who that sounds like.)

Yup, not sure if anybody remembers a guy named Henry Ross Perot. He ran for president and he was a multi-billionaire.

We have nothing against people who earn their money. We don't like people who sit on cash from speculation and rent seeking.
