The Early Life
of a Psychopath
Allow me to introduce you to the poster
boy for Psychopathy, His Grace, Alexander, the 13th Duke
of Manchester, or Alexander Montagu, though during his criminal
career he has used other names in plenty. He is not a smart
psychopath, but his life illustrates many truths about the condition.
Montagu is one of the hundreds of thousands of those without
conscience walking among us. This assertion is supported by a wealth
of evidence from multiple sources over a period spanning decades.
condition was first identified by a psychiatrist named Dr. Barry
Williamson, who attended him in 1984 when he was institutionalized
for assault with a spear gun and attempted suicide. At the time
he was on welfare, received because he was deemed 'disabled.'
Williamson's comment, made to Montagu's solicitor Mr. Zoltan
Varszeghy, who has now returned to Hungary, is included. The comment
entered into the court record was, “Dr.
Williamson attended him there. Dr. Williamson has in fact told me he
has psychopathic tendencies.”

Montagu was then
facing charges of assault against his wife and at least one police
officer with a spear gun.

a child was disruptive, both according to his mother, this supplied

former wife,Wendy Buford, reported seeing played out many times.
After receiving funds
or services Montagu distances himself from the individual, who
he vilifies. He then picks a fight, and refuses to carry
through with his promise for payment or repayment. It is always
their fault, never his.
This is the concept
of 'splitting,' used by the disordered. The targeted victim is
either all good, when they are being used; or all bad, when he is
finished with them.
This is a standard
strategy common to psychopaths.
strategy also includes assault by slander, a massive campaign to
destroy the reputation of the individual who is no longer useful to
him. Relatives, journalists, business partners, former wives, and
friends have all experienced this parting gift from Montagu.
When discovered in a
crime Montagu blames others. During Montagu's recent arraignment for
passing a bad check in Las Vegas he, or his wife, variously claimed
it was a case of mistaken identity, use of the wrong checkbook, or a
plot carried out to embarrass him.

as he wants.

This is a strategy known as, the 'Turn Around.'
This also is
characteristic of psychopaths.
All successful con
men are psychopaths. Police in Australia identified Alexander
Montagu as a "highly
successful con-man,' by
the time he was 29 years of age, this remark memorialized in an
article written about him in the Australian
Post in May
of 1991. This classification of psychopath is not necessarily
violent, but is, nonetheless, psychopathic. Murderers such as
Bernardo, Clifford Olson, John Wayne Gacy may be serial killers,
smiling as they murder, but most psychopaths, such as Montagu, are
subclinical, meaning they avoid punishment because their crimes are
financial or less egregious forms of abuse than murder - but still
costly and damaging to their victims.
term, used by Robert Hare,
the recognized world expert on psychopathy, includes individuals
who, who, like Montagu are dangerous and unpredictable.
difference in the brain
The source of
psychopathy is in the brain itself. A study
carried out at the University of Wisconsin-Madison by researchers
found a variance while studying images of prisoners’ brains.
These revealed that psychopaths have reduced connections between the
ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC), the part of the brain
responsible for sentiments such as empathy and guilt, and the
amygdala, reconciling fear and anxiety
do not feel emotions,fear or empathy, they do not experience love or
guilt. Normal humans reference emotional states and their
actions and choices are dictated and limited by their feelings.
These characteristics are shared by all normal humans and human
institutions are designed, taking into account concern for others and
a working conscience.
A normal individual
cannot lie without experiencing anxiety. This is the basis of the Lie
Detector. A psychopath feels no anxiety when he is lying, for
him lying is normal behavior. This helps to explain how our
institutions have been converted by the psychopathic for their own
profit. As normal humans we sense when someone is anxious, this can
lead us to believe they are lying – and to the assumption those
without anxiety are telling the truth.
are subclinical, formulate their strategies for getting what they
want from experimenting with what works to accomplish their goals.
Over the last centuries, and especially during the 20th
Century, psychopaths have intentionally, and actively, worked to
convert our institutions to a centralized model which allowed them to

larger than the general population. Theories of the impact of
psychopaths on corporate culture have been, according to Robert Hare,
PhD., and growing number of experts and observers, highly

Corporate Psychopaths Theory for Global Financial Crisis,”
by Clive R. Boddy and copyrighted by Springer, cites the need for
further study of the impact of psychopaths in the corporate
environment, pointing out the 'strengths' of psychopaths, charisma,
self-confidence, and presentation, allow them to claim credit for
successes for which they are not responsible. Since they lack
conscience this is most likely to happen. Psychopaths are not
troubled when they walk away with huge remuneration, leaving the
company to falter and die. In recent days, we have often watches

on the level of banking, finance, and other institutions function on
a higher level level than Montagu. They are more intelligent and are
more able to emulate emotions. They are smoother and far more
difficult to identify.
Montagu is an example
of a lower level psychopath, he routinely threatens violence and has
been violent, witness his several convictions for assault in
Australia. He, however, learned to modify the amount of
violence to ensure he would not again face incarceration.
All psychopaths tend
to find successful strategies and repeat them. Psychopaths,
regardless of intelligence, are limited in innovation. But they are
skilled in manipulation and control. They have a radar sense of
knowing what the normal person expects and use this to gain trust and
access to whatever they are trying obtain from the victim. They

had assaulted and lethally threatened with a spear gun, after less
than three months of marriage. The spear missed Marion's friend's
head, also present, by half an inch.
Montagu asserts, against all existing proof, several conflicting
stories. He tells people Marion Stoner never existed. He tells
people the wedding was a gag. He tells people his mother flubbed the
annulment, and he tells people his mother had a long term plot to get

can sometimes work against them in several ways.
Mandeville solves the problem of being deported and homeless.
And, as a testament
to how easily the psychopath, even a less intelligent psychopath, can
manipulate normal people, let us consider how Montagu managed to
stay in a relationship with Wendy Buford Montagu for 15 years, years
fraught with trauma for her.
married Wendy because he was running out of money and was in danger
of being deported. Married to an American woman with a job evidently
became his goal. Wendy reported Alexander was supposedly living with
his business partner but had his own car. She later learned he was
borrowing the car owned by his business partner's girl friend,
claiming to own it.
entire relationship can truthfully be characterized as one outrage
married Buford in 1993, just before the birth of their son,
Alexander, Jr., his first act was to demand she visit the immigration
office to prove they were legally married (a lie) so he could evade
deportation, which he said was about to take place due to the threats
of his business partner. Within weeks of their first date he had
insinuated himself into her apartment and was using her car as his
own. His business partner's girl friend had reclaimed her automobile.
the next 15 years the couple was evicted 11 times, each time because
Alexander spent the money for rent or the mortgage elsewhere. Wendy
was never permitted to know anything about their finances. Asking if
the rent was paid was pointless. Alexander would always lie.
When evicted for
non-payment of rent or mortgage, he focused anger on the landlord,
routinely destroying the property. This has included pouring cement
down the toilets. according to his present wife Laura. With
Montagu the barrage of such behavior was constant and consistent,
according to his wife of 15 years, Wendy Buford Montagu.
Montagu never had a job it was his wife's income from her job which
was garnisheed. Today, Wendy is still paying off these debts.
his mother, Lady Mary, carried the paperwork for the Stoner divorce
in 1996, asking Alexander only to sign and return papers.
the divorce Lady Mary ordered him to remarry Wendy, who had no idea
he had been married to Marion Stoner at the time of their wedding.
Alexander never mentioned the matter. He had lied on their marriage
license, checking, 'never married,' instead of 'married but
annulled,' which had been an option. He had not mentioned an
annulment, but one of his alternative reality stories would be
blaming his mother for not finishing an annulment which there is no
record had ever been filed.
if Alexander had not, himself, informed the Trustees, the matter
would have died there. Alexander, whose life, like all psychopaths,
is filled with chaos, decided to divorce Wendy after he succeeded to
the title of Duke in 2002, while waiting for the sale of the
Manchester Jewels to provide him with funds.
could not help but notice he started going to the tanning salon, had
his teeth redone, and spending other money on himself from a
household budget which was slim at best. Overweight, he also had a
colon reduction so he could slim down. Naturally, he lied to Wendy,
telling her the surgery was covered by insurance and was for his
back. This deception worked for him until she came to pick him up at
the hospital and asked the nurse how the back surgery had gone.
divorce from a non-existent marriage was orchestrated by Montagu
with the intention of gaining custody of the children so Wendy would
be required to pay him both alimony and child support.
a false report of violence, he received a temporary order excluding
her from the family home. Wendy, realizing what was happening,
cooperated completely with the court and went through an intense,
expensive, and humiliating process which proved she did not take
drugs, was not an alcoholic, and was not violent. Wendy was awarded
physical custody of both children, who were turned over to her
without any of their possessions and dressed in only their pajamas.
made none of the court ordered payments for tests he had demanded,
though the court had insisted he do so. Montagu had stolen all of
Wendy's property, evidently selling her family heirlooms and jewelry.
Wendy has received none of her possessions. All Montagu offered to
give her were some old clothes.
Wendy disappear must finally have occurred to him as a solution to
his problem. Fortunately for her, the individual Montagu asked to
carry out the act, who was not psychopathic, called her and warned
her what had been offered him. Her call to local detectives made this
course too risky for Montagu to pursue.

discovered through subpoena, including one account holding nearly
one millions dollars. He was confronted with the records on the

area, never paying the court ordered support for his children or
alimony. The court proved entirely unable to cope with someone for
whom deceit was natural and who never paid his bills.
Normal people follow
the rules. Psychopaths ignore them.
Charges of Bigamy
Two years after their
divorce was over, 2009, evidently hoping the monies paid to the
children would be directed to him by the Trust if his children were
known to be illegitimate, he so informed the Trustees.
The Trustees were
forced to stop the payments to the children, made on their behalf as
beneficiaries, which had made up for the support not received by
their father. After short consideration the Trustees filed a law
suit, intended to clarify and affirm their wish to continue payments,
not allowed under existing law.
The law suit was
filed in the High Court of Justice, Chancery Division and heard on
2011. The Trustees could restart payments to the straitened family.
In the immediate aftermath a spate of articles hit papers across the
world, naming Montagu as a bigamist, which examination of the
existing documents and testimony had proven him to be.
Proof means nothing
to a psychopath. Realizing the public relations disaster he had
wrought, Montagu began to whine, asking for someone to prove someone
else was responsible.
With the negative
weight of the world opinion directed at him, not a shred of shame or
contrition surfaced. Consideration for what his children had
suffered, what he had done to his former wife, were ignored. The
fact he was also proven to have committed massive fraud against his
former wife, he also ignored, focusing only on himself.
His only interaction
with his children is limited to calling them up to slander their
mother and make demands. This reached a high, or low point, when he
called his 12 year old daughter, Ashley, to describe pictures he had
taken of her mother, clearly asleep in her bed unclothed. He told
his daughter he had arranged to sell these to a porn site online.
The taped message exists and will soon be back up online.
Whatever happens is
always blamed on someone else. Bringing it full circle, this was true
of his childhood and, as you read articles
written about him over his life time, you see this has been
consistent. He shows no sense of shame, no empathy, no
, before whom Montagu appeared in Australia for
stealing and selling rental cars in 1991, advised him to continue his
psychiatric care, "You need it," she commented.
It has been noted by others in the legal profession he lives in a
fantasy world and does not relate to reality. The court was
unable to cope with Montagu, releasing him to prey again, even though
by 1991 there was a solid record of his crimes.
Forward – A Solution
During the 80's and
90's psychiatry believed psychopaths could be 'cured.' This
hopeful assessment has now been largely abandoned, due to the
insights gained through the work of Robert Hare, Ph.D., who has
demonstrated the fact psychopaths receiving counseling benefit, but
only by becoming more effective psychopaths.
It is time we focused
on the source of the problem and, in cooperation with reform
movements, began taking psychopaths into account.
Studying the history
of Alexander, Duke of Manchester, provides evidentiary proof of the
inability of courts on three continents to cope with the extreme
likelihood he would, upon release, again look for unwitting victims.
The number of Montagu's victims doubtless number in the hundreds. As
tragic as this is, it cannot be compared to the disastrous outcome
from psychopaths who infest our institutions, converting for their
own profit. Millions of Americans are, today, their victims. This is
only the tip of the iceberg.
We must stop the
psychopathic from participation, where a conscience and empathy are
essential. Those areas are government, corporations with government
contracts, our courts, our schools, and all entities funded by or in
contractual relationships with government.
The Hare test for
psychopathy, given by a qualified and trained professional is very
reliable, remarkably so, when used by non-law enforcement. Hare
expressed reservations at having it used more widely and, there are
indications this might prove to be the case, according to an
A Test Really Tell Who's A Psychopath?
appearing on NPR. But the problem arises from tests
given by individuals, who though trained, are being paid by parties
with a vested interest in a specific outcome. If tests are given
blind, with no information provided to the person administering the
test, this would not be an issue.
Hare himself has
suggested it be used for those in government, corporations, courts,
including attorneys, and in law enforcement. This would be given
upon application for employment or, now to continue employment.
We don't need
legislation to enact this measure. Before voting for candidates, we
demand they be tested,in effect, certified non-psychopathic, a kind
of Honesty Bond. Some corporations will willingly test their
officers and upper level employees. We buy from them, boycotting all
we can handle.
One week from today
is Easter, the yearly celebration of the resurrection of Christ, a
man who exemplifies Love. Eerily, the psychopathic exemplify the
anti-Christ. Devoid of conscience and compassion, psychopaths share
the characteristics of the devil, doing evil for evil's sake. As I
considered this I felt a chill run across my back.
Many have wondered
when the Anti-Christ, long predicted, would be known. Many
individuals and institutions have been suggested in this role. The
threat represented by the anti-Christ seemed to come from all around
us but be no place specific.
A threat spread among
us would have that effect. Not knowing, we could not see, looking
into faced that seem all too human.
