I can. If you can deal with the psychological pathologies at the same time, fine. But I don't want a smarter violent psychopath.

Are they amoral? Are they indifferent or blind to other people's feelings? Do they derive pleasure from causing pain? Are they dramatically self-destructive? There are all sorts of pathologies I'd rather not have walking the streets.

Are there any current or imminent techniques or technologies for treating them that come anywhere near passing conventional scientific standards (like double-blind studies) other than drugging them into a continual stupor? || Unreasonable Software, Inc. || a trademark of USI:
