Have you ever wondered what the price of our progress was? What civilization really means? What makes us and even prominent scientists reject or deny logic, facts, and clear evidence in favor of what we prefer to believe? But most importantly, why do we still romanticize, admire, and even idolize history's worst criminals? Kings, Conquerors, Psychopaths: From Alexander to Hitler to the Corporation by Joseph Abraham provides helpful answers to all these questions and many others. Through anecdotes, historical events, graphic images, and terrifying descriptions, Joseph Abraham reveals to us the true nature of war and conquest and the realities of them. He dispels the romantic concept of war, the excitement of the past about kings and conquerors, and provides a more accurate view of them.
Kings, Conquerors, Psychopaths: From Alexander to Hitler to the Corporation by Joseph Abraham is an antidote to our romantic ideas of warfare and conquerors. It's also a revelatory account of the fullest expression of evil in human history. Joseph Abraham challenges readers' knowledge and leaves them an exceptional legacy that helps recognize those who fit many of the criteria for psychopathy, sociopathy, narcissism, Machiavellianism, and sadism. He shows us the modern descendants of the ancient rulers. No other book encompasses so perfectly the atrocities committed under kings, conquerors, psychopaths, and their successors. No other book accurately explains what actually separates the ancient and modern rulers from the rest of humanity, why we still admire them, and why we struggle to separate facts from fairy tales. I highly recommend it as it makes us determined to acknowledge that we can all become potential victims or potential criminals, that subjugation and domestication do not apply only to animals; they apply to humans too.
