Comments on: "Jon Ronson Quotes: Trying to solve the mystery is what I enjoy most about writing."
There’s definitely evidence that capitalism at its most ruthless rewards psychopathic behavior. When you look at the worst corners of the American health insurance industry or the sub-prime banking market, it really feels like the more psychopathically someone behaves, the more it’s rewarded.
I think if somebody is so set in their ways about what they feel about something – and you get this a lot in academia, of course, and also different sorts of journalism too – you’re going to sweep under the carpet the facts that don’t suit your thesis. And I think that happens quite a lot in the courtroom, for instance.
