4% population is psychopathic and seek positions of authority.2/3 obey people in authority. Psychopaths do not set an altrustic example.
Hi, Pardon my misunderstanding, why I tried to say was that many psychopaths commit violent crimes, however, not all do, and not all criminals present psychopathic symptoms. I recently read that at any given prison, around 20% present psychopathic symptoms. But returning the argument to your actual point, I do agree with you that these type of people are motivated to win at all cost and lack any empathy towards others, some can be really successful in dominating others.

Killing love by antidepressants to bring a desperate lover back to life. (Is extreme love a disease ?)
I think that human beings can effectively handle their emotions in postive ways. Even though it is true that we may need help and support. However, I think that a person can heal from the pain of one way extreme love without using SSRI's as a resource. Even the pain resulting from not being loved may result in positive outcomes, not always, but if the person is resilient and strong, he or she can learn plenty of things from that experience.

I believe that actually a small percentage of psychopaths go on to commit violent crimes, which is how the majority of the general population sees them. A large group of psychopaths can actually become quite successful in positions of authority, such as executive positions within large corporations. It seems that psychopathic behaviors are compatible sometimes with behaviors needed to be successful in this type of positions. This fact makes it kind of difficult to identify them because their behavior may be just the behavior we expect to see in those that hold positions of power. Extensive research has demostrated that most of us, given the right circumstances will follow orders from authority figures, even if it implies hurting other hyman beings.

Dear Sina Your question is quite interesting and challenging. However, I think that we can argue that extreme love, being harmful, would be considered unhealthy. The most challenging part of the argument is that considering the nature of love is not a simple task. First of all, most of the time love is a feeling that involves two people. Whether love results in negative or postive outcomes depends on probably infinite variables, such as a range of other feelings, attitudes, expectations and behaviors. Moreover, every person reacts diferently to each situation they encounter. Nonetheless, in my opinion, if love goes to a point where one is being physically or emotionally hurt, experiencing distress and having their quality of life affected in a negative way, then I would consider that type of love to be unhealthy. On the other hand, with all things considered, I would not advocate for the use of SSRI's as means to end feelings of love, no matter the type.

Is Abortion good or bad???
I totally agree that the terms "Good or Bad" are entirely subjective. Every decision in life has consequences, some positive and others negative. Even the resulting consequences could be positive or negative depending on the person or the point of view. What is positive for one women, may be negative for another. Abortion ought to be a personal informed decision.

This is an interesting issue, whether extreme love is healthy or unhealthy for our lives. However, psychotropic medications pose another problem that is really distinct. These medications modify our chemical neuronal communication and this is the base of behavioral and physiological effects in the patient taking the medications. Even though they are highly effective to treat certain mental disorders in certain patients, they still present serious side effects, issues with drug tolerance and withdrawal. On the other hand, I believe that love compliments our lives. Even when we have negative experiences because of love gone array, we can still construct those instances into learning experiences.
