The Path to Wealth constructed using deceit and violence.
Americans today are up-in-arms over the revelations daily breaking on the greedy individuals who are eating us alive through corporations and through government. This is one such story which illustrates how easily the unethical deceive and steal from those who trusted in the integrity of our courts, government, and those who run corporations. In the story of one corporation you see the fate shared by all Americans.
The Saga of Greedville plays out in Santa Barbara, the smallish, upscale, resort town resting on the coast 90 miles north of teeming Los Angeles. The town is inhabited by people who are enormously wealthy, and like the rest of America, a shrinking middle-class, who struggle to survive as America melts down, on its way to becoming a third-world country.
Greedville, in real life, is Green Hills Software, Inc. Their Saga shows you how psychopaths, cooperatively, rewrote the rules for every institution on which we rely. The Housing Bubble, the Commodity Bubble, the destruction of the middle-class, the dislocation of families through foreclosure, and more, each have revealed to Americans how their wealth was stolen by those who ignored the law and simple decency for their own profit, just like the principals of Green Hills Software, Inc. in their smaller world.
As you follow the story you see who won, who lost, and what happens when there is a lack of integrity because highly intelligent psychopaths are involved.
At any time in a country the size of America there are 20,000 psychopaths with I.Q.s over 180. Smart psychopaths are far more dangerous than stupid ones.
At the left, front, in the header, you see Craig Franklin with a rose in his teeth. Craig is Senior Vice-President for Green Hills Software, Inc. Craig's fantasies only incidentally included money.
On the right, front, in the header, you see Dan O'Dowd, President of Green Hills Software, Inc., who needed Craig to help him achieve his own fantasy of power and success.
Psychopaths, and those useful to them, won. This includes Dan and Craig. Dan became immensely wealthy. Craig was able to feed his most lurid sexual fantasies. Their success, touted to the world, fails to tell the real story of avarice, sexual perversion, the failure of conscience which accompany these corporate events.
The second group lost. Not understanding psychopathy was a pivotal factor here, as it has been across American. This is a cautionary story for the vast majority of us who are normal, who love, trust, and want the best for others.
America has become a nation continually at war. Green Hills Software and its main product, a software program ironically called, "INTEGRITY," drive the weapons of war. Green Hills Software, Inc. is a government contractor, providing sensitive encryption and weapons systems to the U. S. Military.
As with Wall Street, when the rules are ignored and suborned for the profit of those without conscience, money changes hands.. Lives are destroyed. The greedy, bloated with feeding, move on for more. It is happening everywhere we look. It happened in Santa Barbara, behind the seemingly clean doors of Green Hills Software, Inc.

About Integrity: Read the definition of the word below. Let the astonishing gall shown by Dan O'Dowd in naming his computer program INTEGRITY sink in. Psychopaths are inherently deceitful.
Dan recently attempted to evade the reports of moral and ethical turpitude filed against him and Green Hills Software, Inc., with various governmental entities by starting another corporation called INTEGRITY, headed by two of his vice-presidents who knew perfectly well what the deal was and profited far beyond their expectations.

Psychopathy We need to recognize psychopaths if we are to save the future for our children. If we fail those without conscience will continue to prey on those we love with impunity.
Psychopaths cannot be treated. The condition is not psychological. It is caused by deformations in the neurobiology of the individual.

Updates: From the Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy
For Dr. Liane Leedom, understanding the big picture of psychopathy means understanding what these exploiters do to family members.
Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy meeting highlights: Researching victimization
Sex, Lies, Arrogance: What Makes Powerful Men Behave So Badly?
Indicators to look for in identifying psychopaths.
Dr. Robert Hare and others have designed tests, to be given by trained professionals, which are now used in many courts of law and books have been written to help individuals identify and avoid psychopaths.
The list of attributes on which there is unified agreement includes callousness, lack of empathy, and risk-taking, which to quote an article titled, "Socially Challenged," from the Economist, "The combination of a propensity for impulsive risk-taking with a lack of guilt and shame (the two main characteristics of psychopathy) may lead, according to circumstances, to a criminal career or a business one."
Discussion of these issues is now moving into the mainstream, which should result in testing, as suggested by Dr. Hare, of those in government and the boardrooms of America as more cases surface.

Advances in brain science are calling into question the volition behind many criminal acts. A leading neuroscientist describes how the foundations of our criminal-justice system are beginning to crumble, and proposes a new way forward for law and order.
(NOTE: This article is not explicitly on psychopathy but on the constellation of conditions of which psychopathy is a part. Understanding the condition is a necessary pre-condition for determining treatment and/or punishment up to and including life imprisonment and execution.)
