Being obsessive is weird, even when you’re right

from Mr. Angry

I’m starting to think all governments should be run by obsessive-compulsive hypochondriacs. We’re already dealing with a world run by people with severe personality disorders (usually of the Narcissistic sociopath variety) so I think we should simply switch the personality disorders involved. Seriously, all the major ills of the world could be fixed by OCD politicians.

We’d never go to war because they’d be freaked out by the potential consequences (as opposed to the current crop of political and religious leaders who don’t seem to even take a breath to consider the consequences.) We could stop worrying over what does and doesn’t cause cancer because they would focus on finding causes rather than protecting industries, companies and products that might be responsible. Pollution would be reduced as they obsessed over the health implications. We’d get clean energy sources because they’d pour research money into way to reduce pollution. That would get rid of oil dependence (a major source of conflict) and help reduce global warming risks as well.

But they’d still be weird….
