Real Life Case Study of The Sociopathic Business Model™ & Politics

Real Life Case Study of The Sociopathic Business Model™ & Politics


UPDATED* 3.11.2014 2:20pm

We’re going to apply the characteristics of  The Sociopathic Business Model™ to a real life situation to demonstrate the tactics often used for great case study.  The purpose of this case study is to objectively look at a situation to help us make better informed decisions in our own lives.

For this next case study I’d ask that you really try and look at the evidence and not to let your opinion sway you one way or the other.  So take what you know or think you know and put it and set it on the shelf for just about 2 minutes.  Look at how the person in position of power is treating the employee.  I promise you can go back to thinking about this situation however you want as soon as you finish reading this article.

I will say if you keep a very open mind, you might really be surprised and how this application can help in all areas of your life. Anytime there is a situation where one person has power over the other, this exercise will help you see facts through the emotion or what we thought we once knew.

 Case Study:  Employer vs. Employee

The SBM with Logo final

Employer viewed  employee as accomplice who then became a victim

Employer  pathologically lied to the employee and others

Employer  manipulated and did not recognize rights of others or the victim

Employer created hopelessness in victim

Employer created an unhappy and unproductive work environment for the employee

Employer motivated through fear

Employer was demeaning and insulting

Employer is rarely challenged and prefers to work that way

Employer is unethical

Remeber the enemy of The Sociopathic Business Model™ is exposure to the truth which damages the image  that was created based on pathological lies.

 And now for the big reveal:  (Remember to keep the facts above in mind and political or governmental feelings on the shelf for like another 30 seconds).

The Employer was : Our Government represented by Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry who is a potential 2016 Presidential candidate and the employee contract NSA worker is none other than Edward Snowden.  Regardless of how you personally feel about either the Governor or Snowden the model is helpful.  Now we’ll run these characteristics through the model as it relates to a particular event:  Governor Perry calling for Edward Snowden a criminal.

UPDATED: Ruh-Ro! Wonder how many Republican Senators will still be supporting the NSA after they found this out!  New Case Study Coming Soon!

Employer viewed employee as accomplice who then became a victim

  • Edward Snowden was doing as his employer (the government) asked and illegally gathered data on US Citizens and others around the world.  He was an accomplice who, when releasing the truth, became a victim.  

Employer pathologically lied to the employee and others

  • US Citizens were under the impression we had  right to privacy as did others in the world

Employer  manipulated and did not recognize rights of others or the victim

  • The government overlooked the rights of the people for their own gain (often with inconsistent and contradictory statements)

Employer created hopelessness in victim

  • Edward Snowden is no longer allowed in the United States for exposing the truth regarding illegal activity of  his employer (the US Government)

Employer created an unhappy and unproductive work environment for the employee

  • Edward Snowden, at great person risk and financial expense, was unhappy about what was happening at work

Employer motivated through fear

  • Rep. Mike Pompeo wanted Edward Snowden’s SXSW presentation to be cancelled. 

Employer was demeaning and insulting

  • Governor Perry calling Edward Snowden a criminal for exposing the truth 

Employer is rarely challenged and prefers to work that way

  • The Government did not want to be challenged

Employer is unethical

  • Not only did what our government do fall into unethical it fell into the illegal category

This process helped me decide, as a registered Republican:

  1. That I will not support Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry who is employing too many tactics from The Sociopathic Business Model ™ for me to feel comfortable supporting him as a candidate in the upcoming election.
  • And I already know that Christie is out for me from a previous post where I used The Sociopathic Business Model™ to help determine this through facts.
  1. This information points me in the direction of other candidates
  2. This information has made me disgusted with my own party and government.
  3. I will vote for whichever candidate (regardless of party) who can pass this test on multiple topics

Each person who does this with the case study above is likely to have a few more or few less of the characteristics to add to the list but I think if we all start applying the facts as objectively as possible (which I recognize is not always easy to do) to certain live case studies regarding CEOs and elected officials we will likely create a more effective and honest workplace and government, and eleminate the “King Complex” which is certainly a goal of mine. That race has a few less runners for me.  How about you?

Race 4 2016 final




  • Today, private companies are tracking as many of our movements as they can online, selling that information to other companies who in turn share it with law enforcement and the government. The technology they use to do this tracking is advancing rapidly and has become highly sophisticated, and individuals have little chance of keeping abreast of what is taking place when they surf, let alone taking the complex steps necessary to prevent this spying.

    As stewards of our digital lives, companies are the first line of defense when it comes to keeping private information private. Companies should:

    • Tell you when the government is asking for your information so that you can protect yourself;
    • Disclose how often they share information with the government;
    • Stand up for user privacy in the courts and in Congress. Most urgently, companies should advocate for an update to the outdated Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) which was passed in 1986, before the Internet as we know it today even existed.

    Americans shouldn’t have to choose between new technology and keeping their personal information private. Protections for online privacy are justified and necessary, and the government must help draw boundaries to ensure that Americans’ privacy stays intact in the Digital Age. Americansrighttoprivacy.com DOES NOT collect your personal information. Regarding online privacy, we have heard people say they have nothing to hide and don’t care if their privacy is violated. Sadly, they are missing the point. As Americans, it is about standing up for our privacy rights as a law abiding citizen per the Constitution. Our Fourth Amendment protects us against unreasonable searches and seizures which is being violated everyday by many Email providers, hackers and Government agencies through unwarranted searches. One only needs to just read the U.S. Patriot Act or the latest CISPA legislation to verify this disturbing trend. The text of the Fourth Amendment provides as follows:

    “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
