Inside the Minds of Rod Blagojevich and Bernie Madoff


Inside the Minds of Rod Blagojevich and Bernie Madoff
[sign in to see URL]

Like Scott Peterson, Blagojevich and Madoff (if guilty) have to possess a sense of narcissistic entitlement that allows them to feel justified in manipulating others to their ends. Probably to hide internal feelings of unworthiness, weakness, or impotence, such men (or, in other cases, women—including, perhaps, Blagojevich’s wife) create an over-inflated sense of self. Their minds build towering fortresses of ego immune to the reticence most of us would feel about putting ourselves first and everyone else second.

Fem, I like this this section. "In the "News."

I don't know where you're from Fem, but this is about the first time I've actually cried that one of our countrymen, USA, could do this.
And the SOB is on house arrest? And to think the SEC completely overlooked it, or Madoff was brilliant at deceit.
It will be interesting to know if his kids knew what he was doing. OR if they were completely sucker punched as well.

Yet also felt a bit buffered because of reading your and Sam's work.

Sam, despite how controversial your writing is, this particular part of history proves you to be so correct.
