Your thoughts?

First let me criticize your use of group think: "How do we change ourselves..."

I think it is important to recognize that the only one any person has any control over is him(her)self. This is perhaps one of the very hardest things to grasp.

Next let me point out that we are not we. The we to which I presume you refer is an empathicly endowed being. There are many here among us (to go off into a Dylan riff) who are NOT so endowed, and so you've poisoned your argument by lumping in the psychopaths with those who are not.

My personal belief is that if self defense were truly respected and honored as a good*, the psychopaths would either be weeded out or would be rendered harmless out of their own sense of self preservation. But such is not the current zeitgeist. And the psychopaths are vastly more powerful than their numbers as it is inherent in the empathicly endowed to extend trust to others, often far beyond the point where justified. "I just can't believe he would have done that. I must be missing something."

Some of my thoughts in response to your query to the Eye person.

* religions seem to support "self sacrifice" as a good, and bowing to authority as the path to righteousness, thus moving us further and further towards evil as we accept licking the boots of our oppressors.
