I watch a lot of Jordan Peterson videos, and one thing that he finds fascinating and talks about quite often is morality, and how ordinary men turn into killers. He described an encounter with a psychopathic killer he had when he was a student; he said he found it deeply unsettling and that he thought about it for weeks, and concluded that he could actually see himself doing what that guy did.
I also spoke to MM about an interesting statistic I found somewhere online: supposedly only 70% of rapists are paychopthic. I initially had a very visceral reaction to this, not willing to believe ordinary men could commit such acts. But then I thought about it a little, and perhaps ordinary, weak men could commit this ultimate act of savagery, in a fit of rage.
I find this profoundly frightening and also somewhat disgusting to think about.
How do ordinary men turn into killers and rapists? And what does that say about humanity in general lol. How do you avoid becoming one?
