Sociopaths, often described as having antisocial personality disorder, are not born with their traits but their experiences they go through make them the way they are. Perry Smith has many examples of how his upbringing has made him the way he is. Perry’s life was filled with violence and neglect.

Aunts also show women’s complicity. They reeducated the handmaids by brainwashing them and punishing them. For instance, Aunt Lydia makes excuse to the men by saying that men by nature are aggressive and cannot control their sexual desire. “Men are sex machines, said Aunt Lydia… It is nature’s way. It’s God’s device.
Forever. Keith Fenton was the prime example of a stand-up guy. As a high school dropout turned entrepreneur, he knew what it meant to struggle. When I was young, I was not entirely aware of my father’s past, but I know now that he rose out of substance abuse, and I think he made it his mission to compensate for any damage he had done to the world by helping others. He took people on the streets to restaurants, let a homeless man from his Alcoholics Anonymous group use his own shower, and extended his care across species to nurse an abused, diseased dog back to health.
The Jews in Cracow begin to move into the ghetto in 1939, by which time a man called Oskar Schindler moves to the town in order to become a businessman, a tycoon. He cares above all about the money he are going to make, but woman, liquor and good food are temptations he consider too big to be without.

Bundy’s ideas for determining right from wrong gradually changed over time. What was wrong for him in childhood becomes acceptable to him when he grew older. Therefore, he did not see anything wrong in his brutal actions even though his actions were completely unacceptable and wrong for society. Another defense mechanism Bundy had was compensation. After his girlfriend left him, he was trying to compensate for the love by murdering and raping the women who had similar characteristics to his girlfriend.
In an article I found on ‘The Independent ‘ by Kashmira Gander, Gander really helps the reader understand the shooting in detail due to the explicit facts he used. In the article the reporter said that “the massacre was masterminded by a 36 year old father of three” (Gander). Being a father meant that he should know the importance of kids and how they are the ones who hold the future of the world in their hands. I think he was ‘blind’ to the fact that the 132 kids he killed were the future helping hands of the world. His massacre didn’t just hurt the kids or the future but it also killed the parents of the kids mentally as parents spend all their life wanting something good for their kids.
Undoubtedly, militaries around the world train individuals to do extremely violent things to other humans. Often times transitioning away from a high tempo, hyper violent environment back to civilian life is a difficult process. William C.

It 's tense. There is a just a lot of tension of sitting in the same room, ' ' with a suspect, Mitsch said.
