Sociopathic societies prospered very well from what I have seen because they had no conscientious to stop them from making immoral decisions. It was all about the numbers to them.
And pray tell some names of sociopathic societies in history.
Or are you applying your own definition of sociopathy and calling people/ societies arbitrarily sociopathic?

We go now to the eastern periphery of the city.

This is Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, east of the airport.
Over 1.4 million people live there:

It used to be dirt poor in the 60s, when it was formed.
Now it's still poor, but not so terribly, and with some lower-middle class neighborhoods.

The symbol of Nezahualcoyotl is the "Hungry Coyote", a sculpture of dubious taste by artist Sebastián:

At Nezahualcóyotl there is a campus of the University of the State of Mexico:

And another UNAM campus, in the sole middle class neighborhood: FES Aragón

These good pictures remind me of a song by The Kinks "All the houses in the street have got a name, 'cause all the houses in the street they look the same".

I prefer to use my own definition because psychopathy is such a gray concept but would you agree if people were to come to your land capture you put you in chains and shackles and send you away to be sold as a slave that these people may have antisocial problems?

One of my favorite sociopaths is John Newton " its amazing that a wretch like him could still be saved while investing his savings in Manesty's slaving operations and being Anglican priest.

I guess that some people might look at them as some kind of Gods or job creators.

@reasoning logic,
Can't you just enjoy this thread for what it is? You have ample opportunity to express your obsession with socio/psychopathic behaviour on other threads.

You're quite predictable. The next step to support your grand assumption would be using argumentum ad ignorantiam. Well played.

@fbaezer,
Aaaacck! It reminds me of Pete Seeger (I think it was on an album I have) singing Malvina Reynold's Little Boxes, a song about Daly City, California:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Boxes

Or maybe it wasn't Seeger, since Wiki doesn't mention him doing a cover on it, and it's early in the day here to go fussing around in my storeroom.

Rather odd comment to make about someone here being 'quite predictable' when the person making the comment just joined as a member here.

So tell us Sharkey, what other member names have you used on this site and are you still using them?

Oh come on Izzy you know that there are bigger fish in all of this. What is the harm in talking about Henry Phillpotts, Bishop of Exeter and others who were in The Business of Enslavement?

Back to the matter.

Texcoco lies north of Ixtapaluca and west of Nezahualcóyotl.

It was an important independent city at the arrival of the Spaniards. Cortés and his allies from Tlaxcala murdered the king of Texcoco and used this city as an operations base against the Aztecs and Tenochtitlan.

Texcoco was recently swallowed by the Mexico City metropolitan area, but it has an important history of its own.

Downtown Texcoco:

Texcoco was the home of the famous king-poet Netzahualcóyotl, but it is known mostly because of the Spanish heritage.
Home to the great bullfighter Silverio Pérez:
