The Pathocrats.

Political ponerology: a science on the nature of evil adjusted for political purposes. by Andrew M. Lobaczewski, in the author's own words, is

"a new branch of science born out of historical need and the most recent accomplishments of medicine and psychology. In light of objective naturalistic language, it studies the causal components and processes of the genesis of evil, regardless of the latter’s social scope. We may attempt to analyze these ponerogenic processes which have given rise to human injustice, armed with proper knowledge, particularly in the area of psychopathology. Again and again, as the reader will discover, in such a study, we meet with the effects of pathological factors whose carriers are people characterized by some degree of various psychological deviations or defects.” (Lobaczewski, 42)

[...]
"Political Ponerology is a study of the founders and supporters of oppressive political regimes, and the common factors that lead to the propagation of man’s inhumanity to man. Knowledge of its nature – and its insidious effect on both individuals and groups - is the only antidote."
I'm not sure that everyone depicted in the following video is, indeed, a psychopath; however, I'm sure that those who may not qualify as a natural born psychopath, have allowed the pursuit and acquiescence of power to corrupt or eliminate entirely, their very soul, which in a way, is much worse. At least the ones without a conscience from the get to, have the "excuse" of no conscience, whereas the others have no excuse.
