can’t understand this, but the psychopath really does suck the life out
of a caring person. I try to think of them now as a slimy suckerfish right
out of the swamp, vacuum-lips out and prowling for someone vibrant and
attractive to con and eviscerate.”
are a good person you will
meet many evil people in your life, you need to recognize them and
their actions. More importantly you need to recognize which evil behaviors
you have been conned into accepting as reasonable and to reject those
behaviors - both in yourself and in others - as unacceptable.
language has a variety of terms for psychopaths, of which "bastard"
is perhaps the most polite. They
have always been with us, and despite their corrosiveness and rejection
of social mores, they show no signs of going away.
you can spot one? Think again. In general, psychopaths aren’t the product
of broken homes or the casualties of a materialistic society. Rather they
come from all walks of life and there is little evidence that their upbringing
of the two million psychopaths in North America aren’t murderers. They’re
our friends, lovers and co-workers. They’re outgoing and persuasive,
dazzling you with charm and flattery. Often you aren’t even aware they’ve
taken you for a ride – until it’s too late.
problem of plausible
lies is the most serious problem facing humanity today....Most good
people are only aware of the least intelligent part of the evil distribution;
those are the people who are obviously evil: criminals. The
normal and intelligent ends of the evil distribution totally escape
most good people's understanding.
as of late, with all the Enron scandals and related crimes, people are
waking up to the fact that the most dangerous psychopath of all is the
educated, socially adept psychopath, in fact, Dr. Hare recently said
that he would probably be able to find many psychopaths involved in
the stockmarket. It is time for American to "wake up" says Dr. Wolman,
because we are being threatened by a serious epidemic of psychopathy.
Psychopathic or Sociopathic Personality
on twenty-five years of groundbreaking research, WITHOUT
CONSCIENCE is a fascinating journey into the minds of these dangerous
individuals. Are they born unable to feel empathy, or are they created
by circumstance? How and why do they get away with cheating, conning,
and murdering? Are they mad or simply bad? In what Dr. Hare calls our
"camouflage society," how can we recognize and steer clear of these

go for the strongest and the best, but preferably those who are something
of rebels within the group...the LEAST controllable. Because if they can
crush them, they crush most of the rest at the same time. If they start
at the bottom, with the weakest, it’s a long way to work their way up…The
ideal target is therefore, strong, smart, rebellious and vulnerable

term self-esteem] by levelling false accusations and/or questioning your
honesty, fidelity, trustworthiness, your “true” motivations, your “real”
character, your sanity and judgement.”
are absolutely the world’s best manipulators, liars, and fabricators of
truth. They do so convincingly because they believe their own lies. After
all their life is nothing but a lie, a sham, how can we possibly assume
they know anything different.”
around me would get so tired of the whole thing and insinuate that I was
perpetuating things. All I wanted was for him to leave me alone. Part
of the hurt and damage was done because others could but would not see
what was actually happening. He would always try to ingratiate himself
to others it was sickening. Usually psychopaths put on the nicest act,
and you look like the harpy and bitch, and so everyone takes their side,
it is a horror story, a psychopath can be very charming, and manipulative
and manipulate the smartest of people.”
biggest frustration and source of anger, is at those who have refused
to take a stand when they see the abuse . No matter how outrageous his
behavior others often stood by and inadvertently fuelled his grandiosity
and denial... although denial is too mild a word for it.
a psychopath throws the “bad childhood” stuff at you, keep in mind he
might be trying to get sympathy and make an excuse for his atrocious behavior
towards you and/or others. If we let these people make us feel sorry for
them, we ultimately end up in the submissive position again...just what
they want. I can “pity” them yes...but I refuse to shed another tear over
the tragedies suffered by who is now, only a shell of a person.”
a psychopath: Considering a longitudinal section of his life ...it is
hard to avoid the conclusion that here is the product of true madness
- of madness in a sense quite as real as that conveyed to the imaginative
layman by the terrible word lunatic.
the further consideration that all this skein of apparent madness has
been woven by a person of (technically) unimpaired and superior intellectual
powers and universally regarded as sane, the surmise intrudes that we
are confronted by a serious and unusual type of genuine abnormality.
Not merely a surmise but a strong conviction may arise that this apparent
sanity is, in some important respects, a sanity in name only. We find
instead a spectacle that suggests madness in excelsis, despite the absence
of all those symptoms that enable us, in some degree, to account for
irrational conduct in the psychotic.
very slowly and by a complex estimation or judgment based on multitudinous
small impressions does the conviction come upon us that, despite these
intact rational processes, these normal emotional affirmations, and
their consistent application in all directions, we are dealing here
not with a complete man at all but with something that suggests a subtly
constructed reflex machine which can mimic the human personality perfectly.
perfect is this reproduction of a whole and normal man that no one who
examines him in a clinical setting can point out in scientific or objective
terms why, or how, he is not real. And yet we eventually come to know
or feel we know that reality, in the sense of full, healthy experiencing
of life, is not here.
is hard because of all that goes along with the going. It is not just
the person you have to give up but your hopes and dreams and fantasies.
It only happened for me in increments and I cried UNCLE often thinking
if I gave it one more go I’d break through. It wasn’t until I really knew
that no matter what I said or did or didn’t do this person could never
love me or anyone.”
fantasy was exactly that, a FANTASY, that he created for himself, and
presented to me as reality. My head said the fantasy wasn’t valid. I kept
reminding myself: if the fantasy was real, I wouldn’t be treated like
dirt, and feel like shit!”
have finally come to the conclusion that they cannot change, so all we
can do is to refuse to participate in their sick drama and leave the stage.”
[T]he familiar tendency to disintegrate, against which life evolves,
may be regarded as fundamental and comparable to gravity. The climbing
man or animal must use force and purpose to ascend or to maintain himself
at a given height. [...] Whether regression occurs primarily through
something like gravity or through impulses more self-contained, the
backward movement (or ebbing) is likely to prompt many sorts of secondary
reactions, including behavior not adapted for ordinary human purposes
but instead, for functioning in the other direction. The modes of
such reactivity may vary, may fall into complex patterns, and may seek
elaborate expression. [...] People with all the outer mechanisms of
adaptation intact might, one would think, regress more complexly. [...]
In a movement (or gravitational drift) from levels where life is vigorous
and full to those where it is less so, the tactics of withdrawal predominate.
[...] The psychopath as we conceive of him in such an interpretation
seems to justify the high estimate of his technical abilities as we
see them expressed in reverse movement.

An Open Letter From Jay Weidner
About Vincent Bridges
page was formerly occupied by an "open letter from Jay Weidner written
on December 15, 2001, approximately two weeks after Mr. Weidner became
aware of Vincent Bridges' "shady background" as a result of
our investigative report which has become part of our case studies in psychopathy.
Weidner seemed to be sincerely anxious to "make amends" for
having been manipulated by Bridges" to think that we had "shafted"
him in regards to the Zaca Lake conference. He
was also apologizing for several vicious emails he
had sent us which he stated had been as a result of being misinformed
about the conference by "Vincent Bridges". He also seemed to be sincerely
interested in getting to the truth and assisting in revealing "Vincent
Bridges" history of conning others so as to make the information available
to others who might be similarly targeted by Bridges" in the future.
wrote to us telling us that he was under the impression that the event
at Zaca Lake was "sponsored" by Ark and
Laura in conjuction with Vincent Bridges - obviously, what Bridges" wanted
him to believe. As we have stated elsewhere, Bridges presented this conference
as a big affair for which he already had a large audience. It was only
when we cancelled that he informed us that WE were the "main attraction"
and that most of the attendees were being drawn from our readers. We then
realized that we were being used to attract the attendees, that he really
did not have a large audience already. In short, the whole affair took
on the appearance of a con job for the purpose of making money using us.
Weidner then stated that he was so irate because he thought we had "screwed
Zaca Lake Charity out of $8,000.00." We are uncertain as to how this
was possible since we don't think that there were enough attendees signed
up for the conference that, after deducting expenses, there would be eight
grand left. Also, Vincent Bridges had clearly stated that any monies left
over after expenses would accrue to himself, and he would see to it that
we received an "honorarium." We didn't really expect any money
from the conference since we were mostly doing it as a favor to Vincent
to help him get his "publishing company" off the ground, which
would have been advantageous to us as well, since he was going to publish
Mr. Weidner informed us that there was a charity involved, and that funds
from the conference had been slated to go to this charity, and the figure
Weidner continued his letter by informing us that Vincent Bridges claims
about the book they wrote together were "out and out lies."
He then informed us that Vincent Bridges owed him thousands of dollars
since he financed their research trips. (The figure was later give as
Weidner concluded his letter with a heartfelt plea to Vincent Bridges
to "set his career, and life, back in order." He had the idea
that this could be accomplished if Bridges" would just apologize to everyone
publicly for his misrepresentations.
coming forward to the present: We have just received a letter from Mr.
Weidner telling us that our posting of his letters has essentially served
his purpose. He informs us that he has now entered into a legal agreement
with Vincent Bridges that he finds "satisfactory to me ["Jay Weidner"]."
He then states that Bridges has paid him back the $3,000.00 he owed, and
that he has "apologized for his mistakes." Next, he tells us
that the copyright problem has been straightened out as well as the ownership
of Aethyrea Books.
last issue relates to the fact that we discovered through the tax collector's
office as well as the Secretary of State's office in North Carolina, that
Vincent Bridges did not own a legally registered
company and therefore, any of his representations as being a publisher
were fraudulent and misleading. Jay Weidner later filed the corporation
papers on Aethyrea Books LLC, and this was the first time that it had
existed as a legal corporation.
some later point, Vincent Bridges posted on the internet in numerous places
that Ark and Laura had "blackmailed" Jay Weidner into writing
the letters that we posted on our site at Jay's request. Jay then provided
a letter declaring that "Vincent Bridges was an "out and out
liar." The fact is, Jay Weidner contacted us, not the other way around
as the published correspondence will show.
other letters were published by us, on behalf of Jay Weidner, in our ongoing
effort to expose a serious internet predator - Vincent Bridges - who has
a history of theft, lies and fraud. Mr. Weidner
has now informed us that he wishes to just let the whole thing drop because
he is satisfied; he got his money back, he got an apology, and "the
many things said in those letters is no longer true."
a certain member of the research team pointed out regarding such a position:
"Since when does truth become 'no longer true?' Who decides, and
who's truth was it in the first place? Does something become not true,
which once was true?"
concerns us here, of course, is that there is nothing in Mr. Weidner's
attitude that suggests concern for other people Vincent Bridges has, or
will con others in the future.
the bottom line is: even though Mr. Weidner has a price - and rather low,
at that - I don't think that Mr. Bridges will be able to "persuade"
any of the other contributors to the documentation of his fraudulent life to retract what they have said.
so, at his request, we are removing Jay Weidner's letter. The reader interested in the study of psychopathy might want to next read more recent exchanges with Jay Weidner.
