A Difficult Choice
At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
I don't know the difference between a psychopath and a sociopath. But both are popular in fiction. I was just watching a TV show... Well, I'm behind on some shows that finished up their seasons in May, so you probably know the episode I'm talking about. Anyway, that's where this week's question comes from...
What if you found out your child was a psychopath? And was causing harm to others (like another of your children)? What would you do?
