Preventing Sociopathy

Reversing the current trend, in which increasing proportions of young Americans are growing up unsocialized, is a major — I would say the major — social problem of our time. Solving this problem will be difficult and expensive, yet not nearly so expensive as not solving it.  If my analysis is correct, the essence of the solution is to reduce the numbers of youngsters being reared by incompetent or indifferent or unsocialized parents.  -David T. Lykken “The Antisocial Personalities” p. 229
