  • A reply on Talk: William Ury: The walk from "no" to "yes"

    Dec 28 2010: It as all great and wonderful to think we can sit around a campfire/sing songs/love one another, but it does a family and society no good when one of the campers has thievery/murder/molestation/envy/rape on their mind...and for their own twisted self benefit. So how do we deal with psychopaths/sociopaths? Simply put, we dissipate them from our lives and act as community to inform others of their true nature. But don't take my word for it, take Martha Stout's, she wrote a whole book on the topic.

    Dec 28 2010: Though I dont agree that "psychopaths have risen to dominate the earth", I do have to agree with Evan Ravitz's general point that Ury's speech doesnt address how to deal with the psychopaths/sociopaths who inhabit the earth. I couldnt help but think this as I listened to Ury's speech. Though they are a minority in population, psychopaths/sociopaths consistently do significant harm to families and communities. Ury's speech does not apply in any way whatsoever to the sociopathic mentality that preys upon people's honesty and goodwill. In fact, Ury's speech sets us up perfectly to fall victim to a psycopath's/sociopath's trap. That said, I do appreciate the work, concept, and deep sincerity in William Ury's speech. But the lack of addressing the psychopaths/sociopath's mind is one of the fundamental reasons why we have not accomplished world peace today.
