Sociopathy

Sociopathy is the condition of chronic immoral or anit-social behaviour.

It is behaviour that is often dishonest, manipulative, lacking empathy. There is a refusal take responsibility for actions or to feel or express remorse or guilt.

While it is perhaps risky to assign a human pathology to a corporation, or to individuals who are embedded in it, few could argue that the behaviour of some arms companies mirrors some of the characteristics of the sociopathic personality.

I’d like to investigate this idea further, so if anyone has references, please comment.
