Documentary relevant for the Occupy Wall Street protesters and those in relationships with psychopaths!

The Occupy Wall Street protestors need to see this documentary about how Corporate Psychopaths (Wall Street, bankers, mortgage companies, etc,) and Government Psychopaths (regulators, Congress and the white House) are destroying the American Dream and the dreams of peoples of the World. They are responsible for our recent financial collapse.

If you have not seen this short documentary, it is a must see! Watch just the clips if you time is limited: and
But otherwise, this documentary ties it all together. Watch "Fishead, the Movie" at Click on "where to see" link and enter password: fhmovie

The movie is about the 1% of the U.S. population that are psychopaths who are high functioning and rise to the top of their professions and are consumed with seeking money and power. They are "without conscious, have stunning lack of empathy, lack of concern for other people, and look at people as mere objects." They are superficial charming and easy to like but that is their mask that is a fabrication to manipulate people. They mimic "normal." They are often very well educated having multiple degrees. I feel it is one of the most important documentary because for me, it is a "wake up call" that our country's financial stability and our "American Dream" is in danger from these psychopaths. It presents these concepts very simply. They could be your congressman wanting to reduce our "safety net" programs while giving more tax breaks and power to the Wall Street types: "bankster" and their our government regulators. They may be real estate agent and their underwriters who do not provide you with "full disclosure" before buying your house; organizational/industrial; your religious leaders; or could even be someone that you are dating or married to.

The other concept of the movie is that through "happy pills" or prescription drug use (Valium, Prozac...), people take the pills to deal with "psychopathic conditions." "So what is the connection between psychopaths and happy pills? Empathy. Simple human empathy or the lack of it. Psychopaths don't have it and happy pills kill it. Also discussed: Václav Havel, former Czechoslovak President, playwright, essayist, poet, dissident, politician, and his country's hero; Herd mentality; Morality; Altruism; "Most people are basically good, good and passive." Peter Coyote narrates.

On a personal level, the documentary is very relevant for those in intimate relationships with psychopaths! See my webpage:
