E.M.G. Wixley (stalkingshadows) | 32 comments Do we really know our children? Adam was, brought up in a dysfunctional family, was he innately bad from the start or was his upbringing at fault? From child to adult, things kept happening, bad things. Who's to blame? You decide.

1. Setting fires
2. Severe cruelty to animals such as killing and torturing them
3. Persistently hurts, bullies or violates the rights of others by stealing or vandalizing their property.
4. Continuously breaks major rules such as running away or breaking curfew despite knowing the consequences.
5. Shows no guilt when confronted for doing wrong (i.e., pushing another student down the stairs).
6. Shows a persistent callous disregard for other people’s feelings, not just siblings (i.e., pushing another student down and being unmoved by their crying or distress).
7. Persistently doesn’t care about how well they do in school, even when they know there are clear expectations and they are capable of doing better.
8. They appear cold and unmoved, only showing emotions to intimidate or manipulate others.
9. Blame others for their mistakes instead of taking responsibility.
10. Fearless, doing new and reckless/dangerous activities.
11. They are unmoved by threats of punishment.
They are highly motivated by reward and what they will get out of doing something, even if that act will hurt others (i.e., stealing, lying)

message 2: by Len (new)

Len Robertson | 39 comments Dystopias have been all the rage but a murderous cult has bought into the myth and taken the extra strep better know as the self fulfilling prophecy. I'm referring to ISIS. Apparently, ISIS has adopted "The End Days" as their leitmotiv for murdering peoples and destroying the past.

It will take another myth to quell ISIS mythology: UFO's. Stay tuned.

E.M.G. Wixley (stalkingshadows) | 32 comments Are psychopaths attracted to cults like ISIS or do they make them? Len I think you're correct. If there's a threat to the world from outside, perhaps that would bring us together.

message 4: by Len (new)

Len Robertson | 39 comments Not psychopaths. People who don't feel that they fit in. They desperately want to mean something even if they have to kill themselves to do it. Lenin called them "useful idiots'.

Theres more to the UFO thing than pulling the world together. UFO's debunk "End of days". Since the Human map is expanding so rapidly to eventually fill much if not most the the galaxy, I have not doubt as to the existence of organic life and civilizations across the Cosmos. Would they care more than a minute if Humanity offed itself? Since no one else would care if Humanity did, what's the point?

E.M.G. Wixley (stalkingshadows) | 32 comments We all need to belong, especially the young. I've always been an outsider looking in. I understand loneliness and isolation does terrible things but chose to go along the path of creative thinking rather than destruction.

I also believe there's organic life out there and to them we're probably of no more significance than ants are to us. However, the intricacies of our world are mind blowing to me, so yes I think it's worth fighting for.
