Social Entrepreneur or Sociopath?

My Dear Fellow American Citizens:

Yesterday a nameless individual(s) on Craigslist called me a, "Sociopath" in response to my, "Sleepless in Seattle" post:

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/pol/1845060414.html

At this time I would like to once again publicly state for the
record, I am a, "Social Entrepreneur" not a, "Sociopath" and
below for everyone's independent review, are the definitions
for each given title and I am perfectly willing to allow God, the
American People and History, to determine whether I, President
Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and/or all of my former bosses, and
business partners in Expotera, are the true, "Social Entrepreneurs"
or are the true, "Sociopaths" of our time?

Sincerely,

Tony E. Whitcomb
Founder/CEO Expotera

SO·CI·O·PATH

A person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sociopath

Glibness and superficial charm, manipulative and conning.

They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used.

Grandiose sense of self and feels entitled to certain things as, "their right."

Pathological lying. Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis and can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities.

Lack of remorse, shame or guilt. A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core.

Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow emotions. When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person.

Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for love and a callousness and lack of empathy. Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor behavioral controls and impulsive nature. Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim.

Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, irresponsibility, unreliability and not concerned about wrecking others lives and dreams and oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause.

Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed. Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial versatility and changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution.

SO·CIAL EN·TRE·PRE·NEUR

A social entrepreneur is someone who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a venture to make social change (a social venture). Whereas a business entrepreneur typically measures performance in profit and return, a social entrepreneur focuses on creating social capital.

Thus, the main aim of social entrepreneurship is to further social and environmental goals. However, whilst social entrepreneurs are most commonly associated with the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors, this need not necessarily be incompatible with making a profit.

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

Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. They are ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas for wide-scale change.

Rather than leaving societal needs to the government or business sectors, social entrepreneurs find what is not working and solve the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution, and persuading entire societies to take new leaps.

Social entrepreneurs often seem to be possessed by their ideas, committing their lives to changing the direction of their field. They are both visionaries and ultimate realists, concerned with the practical implementation of their vision above all else.

A social entrepreneur identifies and solves social problems on a large scale.

Just as business entrepreneurs create and transform whole industries, social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for society, seizing opportunities others miss in order to improve systems, invent and disseminate new approaches and advance sustainable solutions that create social value.

Unlike traditional business entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs primarily seek to generate "social value" rather than profits. And unlike the majority of non-profit organizations, their work is targeted not only towards immediate, small-scale effects, but sweeping, long-term change.

Social entrepreneurs identify resources where people only see problems. They view the villagers as the solution, not the passive beneficiary. They begin with the assumption of competence and unleash resources in the communities they're serving.

The job of a social entrepreneur is to recognize when a part of society is stuck and to provide new ways to get it unstuck.

He or She finds what is not working and solves the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution and persuading entire societies to take new leaps.

Identifying and solving large-scale social problems requires a committed person with a vision and determination to persist in the face of daunting odds.

Ultimately, social entrepreneurs are driven to produce measurable impact by opening up new pathways for the marginalized and disadvantaged, and unlocking society's full potential to effect social change.
