Well, seems like the jury is in. And I'm sorry to inform you that many of our fellow DC'ers are indeed psychopaths~!

It came as a shock to me too. Who would have thought?

If you're not on Facebook yet, or if you're considering ditching your profile, you've got a new pressure to consider: You might be labeled a psycho.

In a Tuesday article, the Daily Mail asked the question "Is not joining Facebook a sign you're a psychopath?" The Mail points to an observation made by German-language Der Tagesspiegel, that mass murderers Anders Breivik in Norway and James Holmes in Aurora, Colo. both didn't have Facebook profiles.

Quote
The German magazine Der Taggspiegel went so far as to point out that accused theater shooter James Holmes and Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik have common ground in their lack of Facebook profiles.

On a more tangible level, Forbes.com reports that human resources departments across the country are becoming more wary of young job candidates who don't use the site.


Just when you think you kind of know some people. Sheesh! tongue

Being a successful psychopath requires a certain level of cunning and self-preservation instinct. So I kind of agree...  tongue

Right, let's make everybody feel guilty about not signing up to be monitored by the CIA.

The only thing this proves is that psychology is BS.

Well, now that you bring it up...

It's not that psychology is BS; it's more that it is being abused towards a collectivist agenda. This is just a hit-piece on people that don't want to go on Facebook to make them look like anti-social deviants. I would not be surprised if some people actually sign up for Facebook because of it, thinking something like, "Oh my, I'd better do what everyone else is doing. Don't want to rock the boat..."

It's the same collectivist garbage that's being pushed in K-12 education, where you have "participation awards" and "standardized tests".



If you look into it, you'll vomit. It really gets far, far worse. Test questions about committing crimes in a group, with the correct answer being to go along with the group... Yeah. Seriously.

As for the CIA...

Of course they are. Now that they can't snoop on "publicly accessible" information that they are specifically forbidden (under US labor law) from asking a job applicant to provide.

Now does the refusal of the federal government to pass meaningful privacy regulations begin to make more sense?

Nope. Just a FB account.

Corporations are people right?  If the people go on FB and reveal a lot of details of their lives, then should corporations use FB the same way?  i want transparency on revenue, how profits are made, daily activities of employees and CEOs, lifestyle revelations, interests, who are their real friends (Congressmen, etc., not the millions of FB users who click the "like" button, i want to know who corporations are spending weekends with, who they play golf with, who they go to lunch with, all that).

Seems like I know a whole lot about my friends around the world, but I don't know jack shit about corporations.  So who's the psycho?

This is actully 5%-10% of my little stress relief post in the Basement. Isn't it amazing that as a "person" you have to give up your first born son (that you haven't had) but the minute you become a Company nobody cares about Alexander Stradihovsky (made up name) and instead they all focus on ILikeYou.com.

So do 1-man companies have MORE rights than one man!?

That's an easy question to answer... and the answer is... Yes!  And the 1 man corporation pays less taxes for more benefits, and enjoys more protections.

Been there - and the truth is: not really. Or at least not always. Depends on how you set it up - and more importantly - how you operate it. Having your own corporation can easily cost you more in the long run unless you dot every "i" and cross every "t."

Also don't know how it works elsewhere, but where I am, the courts tend to be somewhat skeptical of 1-person corporations if it seems like they were set up mainly for the purposes of limiting personal liability or dodging taxes. Attorneys have also told me it's relatively easy to "pierce the corporate veil" when it comes to a 1-person (or small and closely held) corporation.

Same goes for benefits, which I mostly see as medical coverage these days. I don't know how easy it is for other small corporations to get medical insurance, but where I am they're asking for 5 or more employees to get a group plan. Otherwise you get to buy an individual non-group policy (i.e. $$$$) just the same as if you were buying it for yourself with no corporation behind you.

And in the high-tech (or just plain tech) industries you also have to worry about being deemed a "personal holding company." That can cream you on taxes if you're not aware of what a PHC is and how easy it is to unknowingly become one. Good article on that here. Happened to an acquaintance of mine. Ouch!

Small corporations. You still need them. But they're nowhere near the panacea and fortress they used to be.

YMMV.

It's been a few years since I dissolved mine- at the time I had group rates with only three members through BCBS.  The biggest disadvantage was the lack of balance in liability because of the size of the group- premiums ballooned very quickly.  But I never had a problem with taxes, especially since I found that at the time corporations were very sloppy about filing the requisite paperwork when it came to transfers between corporations.  They'll file the W2 quite quickly... but not much for paying another corporation for work.

That's pretty much where I was coming from earlier. It started out as a means to help people, but now it's mostly just weaponized nonsense. Sure there are still some of the low level touchy feely I'm ok you're ok types. But the bulk of the psychology effort seems to go into screwing the shit out of the populace by conning them into believing some mindblowingly ridiculous spin-doctored bullshit. Like we're really supposed to feel sorry for the oil (oops) "energy" companies because they're having such a tough time making ends meet while they try so gash darn hard to make the world a better place for everybody... Seriously??? [comment omitted to avoid burning a hole in the fabric of the internet]

Either that or they're trying to "fix" things that are just not repairable. Some fruitcake standing over a pile of corpses with a can of whipped cream, a sparkler, and a spoon does not need counseling.

Psychology signals were used as weapon in society for centuries. These days it is heavily used in corporate places and social interaction to bully people.

Some of the examples -
- You don't work 9 to 5? geez, night shift work? ewww.
- Oh you don't shake hands with people all time in our company ? you must be sociopath.
- You want raise? why are you not working on saturday and sunday?
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Social examples -
- You are 30 and not yet married? OMG, your childhood must be very sad.
- You are married for 1 year and no child yet, so sorry for you guys.
- You spend time in front of PC and don't join our discussion where we ridicule our other absent friends, you're anti-social biach cheesy
- You don't earn much money like me? feel very sad for you.
- You got divorced ? sob sob sob.
- You don't keep in touch with me 24x7? I got new boyfrrnd, I iz your ex now. :p

You just can't avoid these milestone arranged by social structure. Large number of these milestones are part of psychological hacking and breaking them makes you either sociopath or psychopath, depending on whichever is worst for that counselor. cheesy
