If you’re preyed upon by a psychopath, which you will be to some degree at some point in your life, the psychopath, who will be narcissistic, will presume that you’re stupid and that you deserve to be taken advantage of because you’re naive and stupid, so it’s actually a good thing that he’s doing it. And his proof for—and I’m saying ‘he’ because there are more male psychopaths—the proof that you are stupid and naive is that he *can* take advantage of you. And so, if you were ‘wiser,’ you’d know his tricks, and it wouldn’t be morally necessary for him to show you just exactly who knows what about what.
