I am trying to teach you something about the nature of the psychopathic mind. Due to feelings of innate superiority that were reified in them as children, psychopaths gravitate towards structures of authority and socially climb as high as they can get on those structures of authority. They want to be in a position where they have control over others. Once they get into that position of authority they do not execute the office faithfully, and I am going to explain why.
People that don’t feel like authority figures in their own lives have their need recognition stimulated to be an authority in someone else’s life. This is because of over coddling from their parental authorities and the fact that they never fully individuated from their parents because their parents wanted to keep them dependent on themselves.
The psychopath has to let you know that they are there, and they have to draw attention to their power over you. They want you to know that you have to go through them. You have to recognize their authority over you. At the same time they want to inform you that the law does not apply to them, they are above the law and above scrutiny.
Arbitrary comes from the Latin arbitrarius, the source of arbiter; someone who is tasked to judge some matter. An arbitrary legal judgment is a decision made at the discretion of the judge, not one that is fixed by law. In some countries, a prohibition of arbitrariness is enshrined into the constitution. Article 9 of the Swiss Federal Constitution theoretically overrides even democratic decisions in prohibiting arbitrary government action. The US Supreme Court has overturned laws for having “no rational basis.” A recent study of the U.S. asylum system suggests that arbitrariness in decision-making might be the cause of large disparities in outcomes between different adjudicators, a phenomenon described asrefugee roulette.
Article 330 of the Russian penal code defines ‘Arbitrariness’ as a specific crime, but with a very broad definition encompassing any ‘actions contrary to the order presented by a law’. ~wikipedia
The English noun tyrant appears in Middle English use, via Old French, from the 1290s. The word derives from Latin tyrannus, meaning “illegitimate ruler”, and this in turn from theGreek τύραννος “monarch, ruler of a polis“. The final -t arises in Old French by association with the present participles in -ant.
The psychopath, when everybody knows what action they should take doesn’t take that action because their is no ability to draw attention to their own ego and their own issues. So they telegraph things. Everybody knows who should get the promotion so they promote somebody else. Everybody knows what action should be taken so they don’t do it, instead they do something that nobody could have predicted, something spiteful and hateful that creates confusion. The psychopath wants to communicate to you that they are smarter than you and unpredictable by you, the funny thing is that psychopaths are predictable because you know they are going to do stupid, evil, shit.
Let’s say that there is a court case. Two people got in a physical altercation that was resolved by one of the person’s correctly using violence but not over reacting, they were well within their rights and they responded correctly. The psychopath, being in relationship with their authority, will rule against the person who responded correctly because it marginalizes their authority if somebody else judges correctly. So, even though everybody knows what the judge should do, the judge thwarts reason by punishing the righteous person and granting a complete pardon to the guilty party. Thereby attracting attention to themselves and the power that they wield.
