There is a glamor to being a sociopath. Should there be? I suppose not but human beings are not how they should be. Are they? I think every woman is attracted to the sexy vampire. Some won’t admit it. Denial lives in the hearts of most people. Denial is what makes most of our problems. It is very hard to face life squarely. That is one thing the sociopath can do. That is one thing that makes him so attractive.
The sociopath sees beyond social niceties. They mean nothing to him. In this, he is above all men. In this, he is more talented than all men. However, all good sides have a bad. The very genius of the sociopath is his undoing. The reason he can see with such a piercing eye is that he has no empathy.
Empathy binds one to a situation( or person) Hence, without empathy, the sociopath is the master of detachment. One could say he is the master of “cool”
It seems as if the sociopath has a great advantage over mortal folks. He is a form of Superman with his insouciance. However, he gives up a piece of what makes us human. He cannot feel the pain or the joy of another. He lives where the air is cool in a rarefied world untouched by human pain or human love.
Is there really a glamor when one can see behind the mask? The glamor loses it’s shine like a zircon you could have sworn was a diamond until it became old, black and gnarled. Then, surprise of surprises, it was never beautiful at all.
