Sloppy Thinking

This is interesting... the BBC quoting itself....

This statement says that he is not a psychopath.

They cannot say that. Why ARE they saying that?

Why do they diagnose him as not a psychopath? Because he isn't foaming at the mouth?

So, psychopaths are not cunning manipulators who pass for normal, eh?

But I'm sorry, it's common knowledge that they are. COMMON knowledge.

I think the BBC misused the word "psychopathic" for "suicidal." Suicidal would make sense in that sentence.

But they have confused the two to make psychopaths sound like people visibly berserk instead of people who LOOK normal but are occultly sick in the head. Why? How can the world's most respected news organization make such an ignorant mistake?

They have confused psychopathy with insanity. Why?

By portraying psychopaths as wild, obviously insane suicidal maniacs they portray this man as what? Mentally healthy? Why?

Psychopaths are seriously mentally ill and yet expert at passing for normal. They are extremely cunning and manipulative. They are malignantly narcissistic by definition.

Human bombs are a whole other thing.


As usual, they leave out the demand that we convert to Islam and ditch democracy to make them stop attacking us. All the MSM do. Or they bury it in the second-to-the-last paragraph by mentioning it in passing. Every time. Consequently, there are billions of people who don't even know that those are the peace terms we've been offered, time and again, since before 9/11 even. I see no reason why this fact should be buried and suppressed. It sure doesn't indicate someone with a very tight grip on reality, does it?

You're so right to point out this particular instance of sloppy thinking. It is so dangerous to our civilization that it makes me wonder about the suicidal tendencies of those in the MSM engaging in this version of sloppy thinking.

Thanks for so brave as to state your observations on this. As usual, you've nailed it.

i just recently for the first time in plain language heard publicly that we have been told to switch to islam and abandon democracy. it struck me odd at first but then realized its true. WHEN are people gonna start looking reality in the face and WAKE UP !!!WHY can't we just flat out say stuff ?? stuff that matters??!! we blow our mouths off about all kinds of ridiculous stuff that only disrespects us and our peers... we are sitting ducks if we don't start respecting each other and become a united nation again. jt

I do not read what you read. Maybe it is my language-problem.
I read; 'the 'more' psychopathic adherents'
So Bin Laden is also considered a psychopath but regarded less severe or at least different.
And for me that just fits a person with severe NPD.
The charishmatic 'leader' who does not kill himself but uses other's to do it for him. Like Adolf Hitler did.
The artical suggests though that Bin Laden is less worse then 'the more psychopathic adherents'. And I think that's a mistake.
If they consider him someone with NPD they should write also, that someone like this in power,is much more dangerous than a 'more psychopathic adherent'.

Literally, it's ambiguous, so your reading is literally possible. So, it's bad writing too. (That would never pass my editing eye for the simple reason that it is ambiguous.) Was this confused writing an accident or for deniability?

In either case, most native speakers of English will interpret it the way I did. We always have to fix up other people's sentences on the fly as we read or hear them. And that's the way the average native speaker will interpret that sentence. That's because we think more in terms of idiom, whereas someone like you pays more attention to literal meanings of individual words and could interpret it either way, probably from what comes later on.

German media have more than half of German people believing he didn't do 9/11 - that we Americans did it! That alone is proof of fraud - and in media that are state funded and/or controlled.

What happened on 9/11 in America I'm sure the great majority of people in Holland and the rest of Europe fellt the utmost symphatie and greeve for what happened to the people of your country.
We talked about it a lot and I never heard someone stating something like written previous.
Offcourse you heard some conspiricy-theories on the media (which the first of them came from America themselfs). They've never been taken serious by the majority of people here.
As far as I know the overwhelming opinion here is that Al-Qaida and Bin Laden are the terrorists and criminals and have to be chased and brought to justice.
From many countrys in Europe still soldiers are fighting in Irak and Afghanistan. A few weeks ago 2 dutch soldiers died.
It's just not thrue that the media here or in Germany or else in Europe (I regulary see many of them) make the people believe that the American gouverment did it themselfs. It's just not thrue.
It's thrue that the kind of politics America now uses is doubted widely, as in America also more and more.
But no doubt what-so-ever about the absolute cruelty and guild which is on the shoulders of this Al-Quada organisation and the psychopaths and NPD's who mislead the common moslim people and use their hate, unawareness and weakness and the psychopaths and NPD's among them to do this terrible deads for them.
Just like Hitler and his henceman did.
There is no use in the statement previous. It's not thrue and this kind of statements only can devide and fuel paranoia which is not constructive at all.
I know you Americans can have trust in the loyalty and sympathy from the great majority of Europeans regarding who bears the guild for 9/11.
There should be no doubt about that.
We all sympathise with the trauma and the greeve you all had to endure.

greetings, Gerard

Wonderful to hear, Gerhard, because usually this and this (by Bertrand Latour) is all we hear: "You just have to watch that anti-Americanism oozing all around the planet, not least of where in France. For instance, I do remember September 11th 2001....and above all - remember September 12th 2001 when all my colleagues were mocking me during one of our breaks [for his sorrow over the attacks], laughing ....And I am stating it loud and clear because I was there, smack in the middle of it: on September 12th 2001, a large majority of the French people did not shed even half of a tear over what had just happened in New York.

That affects us. You can imagine how.

Hope you understand.

You are a very gracious person. If more Europeans talked the same way, it would make a big difference! We have our America haters right here, so we would understand. But I think many Europeans are so used to anti-Americanism that they forget what it must sound like to us now that the Internet brings it to our ears. That is a new development, you know. Before that it went on without us knowing it.
