Of course he does things for others. He just wants something in return. The same goes for Clinton, Obama, Biden, Bush, and others.
I don’t know what you mean by factual analysis: are you looking for leaked information, psychological analyses of politicians, or sociological studies of their admirers? Also, are you aware that all of the sources I’ve shared are not from conspiracy theory sites but from mainstream media?
Are you looking for something like this?
If so, then would you also like to consider another article from the same magazine from a few years earlier?
Of course, sociopaths and psychopaths are not the same, but the points are notable:
In this presidential election season where, as usual, the fur is flying and name-calling is in full swing, one invective seems to be gaining currency – psychopath. A web search for “Romney” or “Obama” and “psychopath” (or, more generally, “politician” and “psychopath”) yields millions of hits. While it’s tempting to dismiss this phenomenon as mere venting by angry voters, the rantings of conspiracy theorists, or even bloggers trying to drive traffic, it is worth at least asking the question: could they be right? If these pundits mean that the targeted office-seekers are evil or “crazy,” probably not. But if they are pointing out that politicians and psychopaths share certain characteristics, they could be on to something.
Here’s the punchline:
There is more at work than just the drive to seek office, though; psychopaths may have some peculiar talents for it, as well. Research has shown that disorder may confer certain advantages that make psychopaths particularly suited to a life on the public stage and able to handle high-pressure situations: psychopaths score low on measures of stress reactivity, anxiety and depression, and high on measures of competitive achievement, positive impressions on first encounters, and fearlessness. Sound like the description of a successful politician and leader?
Now, I can study this matter even more, but I’m certain you can do that by yourself. My only point is to show you that what I’m sharing is not exactly based on conspiracy theories. At least that’s what sources ranging from The Atlantic to personalities like Noam Chomsky have been stating: we’re looking at not just a “cult of Trump” but cults of personalities: either authoritarian or compassionate, but all colluding with those who are in actual power, if not with each other.
Still don’t believe me? Take a look at U.S. history for the past seven decades, especially the relationship between the country and others, especially weaker ones, and see for yourself.
One more thing: in case you’re wondering where my initial points came from, they’re from Michael Moore.
