I'm not surprised this has received such high ratings; it's a work of such important and informative proportions that it should be required reading for every single person on the planet. Please don't think I'm being overly dramatic because it truly begins to explain the causes and maneuvers of evil in our world - how it has happened, continues to happen and will happen - and how so much suffering can come about in a relatively short period of time and from the influence of such a tiny minority.

Many confused individuals throughout history have looked towards race, gender, culture, religion or whatever to explain it, but it doesn't cut to the very essential root: the actual hard-wiring of the brain and how a select few have a different neurological structure; no compassion, no pity, no love, no conscience. Zilch. Not only that, it can be and most often is, completely masked with an act so contrived and realistic that the people left in their path of destruction hardly know what's hit them. This book deals with how these deviants rise to positions of power and steer the course of large societies towards complete lockdown and destruction.

And you know what? It's happening right now in the US, Australia, Europe and the Middle-east; all of the characteristics outlined by Lobaczewski in clinical detail have come to fruition and if people don't wake up soon, and integrate the information conveyed in this work, then we've all had it.

The work that went into gathering the information, and the events leading up to this books publication is a story in itself. But what is more is the information that is within its pages regarding the circumstances that we find outselves, in todays world. Ever wonder why humanity seems to always through the eons of time, keep trying to annihilate themselves. Well, the secret is within this book. And the answer if both chilling and amazing.

A must read!

From using his detailed memory on scientific research and data, Polish Psychologist Andrew Lobaczewski wrote a paramount work titled "Political Ponerology," which was published in 2006. This book drives the readers to experience the hidden aspects of ponerology and to understand the importance of this book. The author Lobaczewski has lived and studied the nature of psychopathy under the harsh condition of the Soviet Union control. And, he has written this work to bring forth the most important study one has ever undertaken. This book is a third manuscript, and the first two manuscripts did not reach the public's humble mind because the first copy went into the fire before it could be confiscated by the secret police and the second copy (with all of the scientific data) was never accounted for when it was on route to Vatican. By looking at what is political ponerology, the issue of psychopathy, how normal people are being affected by the pathocratic rule, one can gather an understanding why political ponerology is greatly important and how it would help the humanity.

The term "ponerology" came from the Greek word, poneros, meaning "evil" and the ponerology basically means a theology study or research on the nature of evil (p. 71). In the case for the term "Political Ponerology," it is a science discipline or study on the nature of evil within the political world. It is because of this arisen (yet suppressed) discipline that we would learn of the pathocratic rule is played out in both the past and today's world governments. It is because of this new discipline that we come to realization of the truth; the truth that there is evil within our governments to this day.

Political Ponerology is a new science, born out of the pain of suffering under Communist oppression in Poland. It is the result of the search for a scientific answer to 'why' this kind of oppression happens, and what can be done about it. It turns out that the same scenarios repeat ad nauseam throughout history, in what Lobaczeski calls the 'hysteroidal cycle'. At the center of this are two concepts. The first is of a small but constant percentage of psychopaths, 'deviant' human beings who are basically conscienceless (due to genetic or environmental damage) and will only ever act for their own benefit, which inevitably turns into oppression of others. The second concept is that of the hysteroidal cycle where, during the 'up' part of the cycle, societal 'good times', knowledge of this deviancy is gradually eroded and lost, and society therby loses its immunity against it - this leads to a cumulative oppression of society as the 'ponerizing' influences begin to snowball, and ultimately a collapse of social order and human function as the population can no longer support itself under such extremes of manipulation.

This book is not an easy read to start with. I've found that repeated study has revealed further subtlety as my understanding has increased - it is also useful to read it as a natural companion to modern studies on psychopathy such as 'Without Conscience' by Dr Robert Hare, and 'The Sociopath Next Door' by Dr Martha Stout. It would also be useful to read what can be though of as a Ponerology case study, '9/11: The Ultimate Truth' by Laura Knight-Jadczyk

Ponerology is densely packed with concepts which are initially difficult to digest, partly because of their unfamiliarity, but moreso because of the profound implications that they have on life today.
