Three Ingredients for Murder: Neuroscientist James Fallon on why psychopaths kill and libertarians don't

|

UC Irvine neuroscientist James Fallon had already been studying the brains of psychopathic killers for years when his mother told him that he comes from a long line of murderers (including his infamous cousin, Lizzie Borden). After studying himself, Fallon discovered that he has two of the three ingredients for psychopathology.

Fallon sat down with Reason.tv to explain why he's not a murderer, why others are, and what it is about libertarians that-just might-keep them peaceful.

Approximately 8.50 minutes.
