6. I've always felt politicians seeking high office should go through, somehow, a

screening with a public psychological profile as a result. Political positions IMO are ripe for attracting psychopaths/sociopaths. ... it's often the ultimate power-trip IMO. As you aptly pointed out, "The very rating of 'respect' doled out in society is too off the beam to control the bad apples. In some cases the whole barrel is pretty moldy." I think we see that well represented in the GOP, for example, one begets another until "the whole barrel is pretty moldy."
