Political Ponerology (A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes)

Political Ponerology (A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes) - Andrew M. Lobaczewski, Laura Knight-Jadczyk There is no doubt that evil people exist in this world, and that unfortunately many of them seem to find their ways into positions of power. It is an enticing idea to think that this phenomenon could be examined scientifically to prevent future Stalins and Hitlers from coming to power. I wanted so much to believe this book outlined such a science, but on that score it disappoints. To be fair, the book makes some interesting points about how pathologic personalities thrive in bureaucracies- but it fails to deliver on what the title promises.
