    I thought it was to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

    I’m guessing he discovered this “secret” while reading Atlas Shrugged.

    Disturbing, but happy. What else is there to life?

    He’s never had empathy for others and yet he’s only been partially happy all tis time. Must not yet have found the key and once again is conning himself.

    I am happy for you Rat, I feel your joy (empathy).

    The Sacred Rat. Life is what life is. It has no meaning. Joy gives way to sorrow, and sorrow to joy. The wheel of fate turns and we all turn with it.

    why carry empathy, when no one around you has it?

    But it seems to me that individuals with Antisocial Personality Disorder (formerly called Psychopaths or Sociopaths) are not happy.

    “Discovered the key to happiness”? Guess what, Rat? I don’t care.

    If Rat thinks HE has found the key to ANYTHING, it’s time for him to check the locks…and the BAGELS!

    I love Steph’s use of the brick wall here.

    Hmmm, the use of the wall. Now I’m thinking Rat’s got that big smile because he’s whacking it, not caring how it might offend anyone. I wonder how long can he keep it up.

    So now Goat can figure out: Is Rat a hedonist or an Epicurus?

    Is it the Buddhists that you hate, or those who wish to increase government spending to alleviate the inevitable and have not yet found their place beneath the Bodhi tree?Take your time, Siddhartha.
