All evil people are mentally ill

I think all people who commit horrible crimes are mentally ill, not the schizophrenic,depressed kind but the sociopathic/narcissistic kinds.. they have problems with the part of their brain controlling empathy,conscience,decision making etc.. so why doesn't the law recognize them as insane? I'm not not supporting them or anything.. I think they should just be euthanized but also understood and not condemned.

Edit: To the easily triggered there's a BIG difference between "all evil people are mentally ill" from "all mentally ill are evil."

Is It Normal?

  • That doesn't mean they're instantly mentally ill. Some people out there know exactly what they're doing, they just don't care.

    • of course they "know" what they're doing but they are just but prisoners to a brain with little to no empathy and conscience among other dysfunctions. People should do the math. Sadly, Freewill ain't real.

  • So you think murderers and rapists shouldn't be euthanized?
    You're lumping all mental illnesses together.. l'm talking about real narcissists and sociopaths where lack of empathy and conscience is the disorder.. and it's already proven most of them don't think anything is wrong with them thus not seeking help and getting diagnosed and added to statistics. And those that are aware of their evil just don't give a shit and keep doing what they do.. you don't think they should be stopped?..
    l say euthanize cause they are a danger to others and the world would be safer and better without them[narcs and socios].. i say not condemn like calling them demons and monsters who deserve to die a slow and painful death and understand scientifically that it's not they're fault they are prisoners to a very dysfunctional brain.. so yeah, "euthanized" and "understood and not condemned" can belong in the same sentence..

      • of course.. i'm talking about the low functioning really dangerous types.. a lot of them aren't violent killers but they always most certainly do harm people even just emotionally through neglect, abuse, manipulation etc.. actually even high functioning ones like world leaders who cause millions of people to suffer for their own selfishness and ego should be euthanized.

          • Not really, ending one life that causes the death and suffering of many is the moral thing to do. That's why l said euthanize.. it's fast and painless.

  • Given your flippant use of the term "triggered" which was a medical term for people suffering from ptsd until it was devalued by garden variety edgelords, I'm going to guess you already thought very little of us psychos anyway, so there's really no purpose for this except to validate your own ableist ideas.

  • I AM a narcissistic sociopath, and I don't care. Am I mentally ill? Who the fuck cares? I am going to hunt you down and smash your head. Why? Because of consequences. You talk shit about me, you pay the price. God damn, I'm loading my weapons right now. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  • So if someone has the state of mind to actually carry out an atrocious act, they are by definition mentally ill?
    I think it's fair to apply that rule some of the time, but I don't think it's always true.

    And if the law recognised everyone who committed eg. mass murder as insane because... 'you'd have to be insane to commit a mass murder', then in theory sane people might commit mass murders only because they know the law will mis-identify them as being insane.

    • Yes obviously..and a lot of scientists actually back that up too..

      A sane person would never commit mass murder.Period. Open your eyes and connect the dots objectively.

      • In wars, sane people drop terrible bombs on civilians all the time. Look at the mass civilian casualties from Russian bombings in Syria. Very sane people. Mass murders. Dots connected.

        • How do you know they are sane people.. did you scan their brains?c: A lot of sociopaths and narcissists seem very normal and have no obvious signs of being mentally ill.

          • Admittedly, my observation is unsupported, and not obvious. If you're going to claim that your assertion is obvious, you have some data to collect, and some definitions to establish. At the moment, all you have is supposition. Sorry.

          • Narcissists and sociopaths don't have the capability to fall into the mindset required to actually serve in the army. Most of them are too self-centered to give up their individual identity and follow the orders of another person unquestioningly.
            Also you forgot to factor in the devotion many have to their religion; it's quite immense and people build their entire lives around it; most of which are sane.

            • A lot of high functioning narcissists and sociopaths strive for positions of authority and power.. or even just for the glory and respect/admiration of others so being in the military, police force, politics, religious leader etc.. will certainly attract them. Being seen as a "hero" is enough for a lot of narcissists even if they have to follow orders from another.. most likely another narc.

      • In an infinite amount of time, under every conceivable circumstance, I think at least one sane person would commit a mass murder.
        Connect the dots man! Objectively.

        • If a person brain is wired to have strong empathy and conscience, he wouldn't commit mass murder.. maybe unless someone had guns on his family's heads and says they're all gonna die if he doesn't shoot up a bunch of other people.. but that's a highly unlikely situation.. l'm talking about people in general c:

          • Nah, you're right. Generally I agree that if someone commits a mass murder, they are by definition insane (any extreme examples, and war to the side because that's not what you're talking about).

            What I was getting at before was just that the law is supposed to act as a deterrent. So, if people know they can easily plead insanity by default for a particular crime, then the law isn't really acting as a deterrent. So, there's a good argument that more people would commit that crime because they know the punishment won't be severe.

            But on the other hand, realistically for crimes like mass murder - I mean, there's pretty much no way any sane person would do that, even if they *knew* there'd be no punishment.

            But that's all, I was just replying to the part about why the law doesn't treat those people as insane by default. And I think that's one of the reasons. It's not my opinion on insane people, just why I think the law is like that.

          • Did you know that in wars, officers kill their own troops for failing to obey orders to kill enemy combatants. Join the army, it will help you to grow up.

            • Well that's a totally different case.. i'm talking about people in general without guns to their head ordered to kill or be killed.

  • I think they should be neutered like cats and dogs. And then locked in a cesspool. And then let them eat human shit until they die of bacterial infections.

      • Not really.. l was a victim of sociopaths and narcissists my whole life and developed some mental illnesses but i definitely have a strong empathy and conscience. My brain didn't develop like theirs luckily.

    • Agree, about them not being allowed to reproduce since they'll pass their genes and be horrible parents continuing the cycle of disordered people.

  • For this theory to be true, it would mean that "normal" people don't have the same impulses and I don't think that's true. I think most of us have probably been in a situation where someone wronged us and, somewhere deep down, we wanted that person to get a comeuppance. That's not necessarily "evil," it's just a part of human nature. Extending this analogy, the only thing that separates the "evil" people who actually follow through on their desires and those who don't is the gumption/willpower/detachment to realize their vision. I don't think these qualities are inherently evil as they are considered positive attributes in different contexts. Therefore, you can't argue all "evil" people have mental issues.

    • Narcissistic and sociopathic people have abnormalities in the parts of the brain controlling empathy, conscience, impulse control, decision-making etc.. specially the full blown ones., so just like suicidal,depressed,ocd etc people, its not their fault they are wired that way.. its all in the brain so any person who committed super evil acts obviously are mentally ill., they don't have to be diagnosed. Part of the symptoms of their disorder is they don't think anything is wrong with them and never seek help.. and most "seem" very normal compared to other types of mental illnesses. The world is actually full of narcissists and sociopaths who just weren't diagnosed and added to statistics. Of course there are different degrees of severity depending on the brain's biology and physiology and not every one of them is a murderer or rapist.

      • You criticize others for not connecting the dots, yet you don't seem to realize you're connecting things that don't belong together. Correlation is not causation.

        Of Course they won't seek treatment as along as people like you exist; people who refuse to accept that mental illness is not the only cause of violence and believe they are complete scum that need to be euthanized.
        "Euthanized" and "understood not condemned" don't belong in the same sentence.
