There is no such thing as “mental health or “mental illness”, there is only Moral Health and Moral Illness. This is true even when there is an underlying organic defect, which is the etiology of the symptoms.
There are three classes of people who suffer from the various symptoms Psychoses, Neuroses and Behavioral Disorders:
1) those whose moral structure is pathological
2) those who have been traumatized by those whose moral structures are pathological to the point where they were forced to create an alternative reality in which to live or were rendered dysfunctional as a result of the trauma
3) those who are both – the vast majority of Humanity today because we allow the morally pathological to not only run amok in society, but even lead our societies.
There is no scientific cure for Moral Illness. No pill, surgery or implant can cure moral illness. Talk therapy is effective only to the extent that it is a morally healthy interchange.
To attempt to cure moral illness with scientific methods is pseudo-science. That approach has been the preferred method of (mal and mis)treatment in Psychiatry and Psychology because those professions tend to attract many Psychopaths who quickly assume a leadership and authoritarian position in the Psych-Social Services community and steer it to their own nefarious purposes.
The first honest and effective step in eradicating the symptoms of Psychoses, Neuroses and Personality Disorders must be an intrepid treatment of Psychopathy, on every societal level.

Psychopathy Confronting Evil at Home and In Society
The first confrontation with Psychopathy, which is the modern term for Evil, is in the home.
We, the Parents of Psychopaths, must overcome our shame, our fear, our doubts and even put our love aside, and confront the issue of having a Psychopathic child intrepidly.
Psychopathic children are first recognized by their behavior, but the presence of the Illness can be empirically verified.
It is our job to lobby Psycho-Social Services to deal with Psychopathy in Children honest, humanely and effectively.
Please see this short video by Thomas Sheridan (among his many must-see, longer videos).
A Cat Can Save Your Life – They Can Spot the Toxic People…
Your cat CAN see who is a Psychopath. When my child who is a Psychopath comes into the house my cat runs into another room and stays there, sometimes for days if the person stays over. Normally, my cat approaches even the delivery boy or someone coming to the door to solicit donations in a friendly way.
This is an interesting article.
I’m not at all sure the findings are exhaustive.
A person in full control of their faculties can oscillate between analysis and empathy in accordance with which quality a given situation requires or choose to turn them both on at once when need be. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/10/121030161416.htm
“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.” — John Lennon
One of the most painful and trying experiences one will ever as a parent is being the parent of a psychopathic child. The struggle never ends – and heightens when the psychopathic child himself or herself becomes a parent.
This phenomenon exists and it is high time we recognized it for what it is.
