Last year a CNBC article shed light on people’s reluctance to wear masks, social distance and self-isolate.
YOU are the sociopath!
Researchers from Brazil’s State University of Londrina found that people who reported “antisocial traits,” such as low levels of empathy and high levels of callousness and risk-taking, were less-likely to comply with Covid-19 prevention measures, such as wearing a mask and social distancing.
Also known as dissocial personality, psychopathic personality and sociopathic personality or in other words “a chronic and pervasive disposition to disregard and violate the rights of others,” according to the American Psychological Association.
A small Polish study concurs: Anti-maskers are people who demonstrate the “Dark Triad,” (a set of three socially aversive personality traits: narcissism, Machiavellianism and psychopathy)
Even Lucy is choking on her tacos at this shining example of hypocrisy.
Two days ago, Nassim Nicholas Taleb echoed the sentiment in his tweet, “I’ve been getting rid of my BTC. Why? A currency is never supposed to be more volatile than what you buy & sell with it. You can’t price goods in BTC. In that respect, it’s a failure (at least for now). It was taken over by Covid denying sociopaths w/the sophistication of amoebas.”
Taleb is the author of Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, in which he describes a black swan as an event that 1) is so rare that even the possibility that it might occur is unknown, 2) has a catastrophic impact when it does occur, and 3) is explained in hindsight as if it were actually predictable.
I may be a Covid denying sociopath with the sophistication of an amoeba, but at least I won’t be crying every night for the rest of my life over the Bitcoin I “got rid of”. Even less about the Monero I’m hod’lin onto for dear life, privacy and the only escape from.
In today’s Lucy and Jeff Show you can learn more about I guess I’m a top sociopath and Bitcoin is my prize! and other great stories of How To Control Oppress – Victimize – Isolate – Divide (COVID) With Statistics (a favorite read of Farmer Gates) –– and The 2021 Crypto Crime Report.
It’s a show you shouldn’t miss, with all the ingredients of a scam of epic proportions snowballing down a mountain in Kanada and running over Mr. Tam’s new provincial borders.
In 2017 Morgan Stanley Chairman and CEO James Gorman said bitcoin is getting more attention than it might deserve and that the cryptocurrency is the “definition” of a speculative investment, and anyone thinking it might be stable is “deluding themselves”.
Now, in 2021, guess which giant bankster’s $150 million investment arm is considering adding digital currencies as an asset class?
No masks required. No lobotomizing PCR brain pokes either.
