Long/Short: folk confound "sociopath" and "psychopath" ... so the psychopath (who is often charming, even charismatic) grins as he pollutes and wrecks havoc.
Similarly, folk are down on red-neck culture because of what cracKKKers have done and continue doing.
Bottom line? the truly evil walk freely among us.
"Nice" folk typically are not. They're self-serving and malignant. Mundane malice distorts everything in our society.
