Some of the most prominent figures in history have seemed like psychopaths. King David committed some shocking things, presumably just to demonstrate that he was a strong king:

The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

Nothing unusual there, landrew, since royalty throughout history have freely committed atrocities. The big problem with monarchy as a system of government is the belief they have in "entitlement ". When you think you are entitled to almost anything, you have no inhibitions about doing evil things. Hopefully monarchies will STAY dead.

I agree and that's the kind of distinction that justifies having different words. No pure synonyms where there are distinctions of value.
