Back in 2007 I posted an excerpt from an interview with Kurt Vonnegut just a few days after his death. With the occupy movement gaining steam, his words on the greed of American society seem prescient.

The original link I had quoted seems down. Here is another link to the full interview. It would be amazing to have a personality like Vonnegut’s speaking out on Occupy Wall Street.

[Psychopathic personalitie] are presentable, they know full well the suffering their actions may cause others, but they do not care. They cannot care because they are nuts. They have a screw loose!

And what syndrome better describes so many executives at Enron and WorldCom and on and on, who have enriched themselves while ruining their employees and investors and country, and who still feel as pure as the driven snow, no matter what anybody may say to or about them? And so many of these heartless PPs now hold big jobs in our federal government, as though they were leaders instead of sick.
