Of course, but we all start out with sociopathic behavior. Genes play a big role in overcoming sociopathy, but environment has a lot to do with it too.
Respect to All Darc's uncle JP, but I accept dear old Timothy Leary's theory of the eight circuit brain. You can't call a toddler a sociopath, they simply haven't had the higher brain circuits activated.

The problems A. D. sees with people come from meme transmissions from the older generations. There is always hope for the next one.

"We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first."
Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds -- Charles Mackay 1841
