    U.S. Confidence in Organized Religion at Low Point


    Forty-four percent of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in "the church or organized religion" today, just below the low points Gallup has found in recent years, including 45% in 2002 and 46% in 2007. This follows a long-term decline in Americans' confidence in religion since the 1970s.

    The child abuse/cover-up scandals don't help.

    sociopaths have the advantage in the realm of power.

    they dont spend one second of their lives thinking about relationships or their feelings.

    they dont have feelings.

    they spend that time instead thinking of ways to get what they want.


    I bet there are smart sociopaths at top of most industries and large organizations.


    Its why we need to watch the people at the top very closely and have enough power as a people to take them out when needed

    4 in 100 people in this world are sociopaths


    thats alot of people and they have the advantage of being willing to do ANYTHING to get what they want.

    no morals or feelings to get in the way.
