The average parliament is choca full of psychopaths, as is the average prison.

At least half the managers of top football clubs also appear to have claws.

Just a few to start the debt reneging ball rolling :

- julius caesar
- chairman Mao
- Josef Stalin
- Steve Jobs of silicone valley
- Jimmy Savile
- Walt Disney
- Henry Ford
- Eamonn DeValera ?
- Lord Trevelyan
- Charlemagne
- Clovis
- Niall of the nine hostages

what others ?

Nonsense to list De Valera as a psychopath, though you could definitely include some of the Michael Collins Squad and subsequent Free State Army officers such as Charlie Dalton, Emmet Dalton and Paddy Daly.

Tony Blair. Very high superficial charm factor, lack of empathic understanding of his actions, evades responsibility. Devious, manipulative, pathological liar. Borderline case to me though.

Henry Kissinger is perhaps a better example. He has been involved in promoting so many acts of violence and atrocity around the globe and never seemed to give an impression that he understood these things were problematic in any way. Total deadpan expression. He even expressed indifference to the troops who he sent to do his killing saying "Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy".

Staying on the subject of leaders. Roberto_D'Aubuisson seems like a good candidate though he was also a sadist in addition. He joined a death squad in El Salvador while in the military. He got the nickname blowtorch Bob because he liked to use a blowtorch when torturing people in interrogation and that is unusual because few leaders have personal experience of atrocities in these times tending to come from a class that is above the fighting. He was an ally of Reagan and had been trained by the Americans. His completely brutal war against the FLMN rebels in the country was marked by torture, mass murder and rape. Even the US ambassador to the country called him a 'brutal psychopathic killer'.

Colm McCathy the economist strikes me as very likely. Remember his idea for tarmacking Marly Park because its not used much during the week? You know, when people are in work and school? And over used at the weekends..."My analysis shows its utilisation is uneven therefore turn it into housing"

Or more likely that he's on the autism spectrum.
