    Selfish dictators may owe their behaviour partly to their genes, according to a study that claims to have found a genetic link to ruthlessness. The study might help to explain the money-grabbing tendencies of those with a Machiavellian streak — from national dictators down to 'little Hitlers' found in workplaces the world over.

    Pretty soon they will find a worthless bum gene, a cheating husband gene, an annoying poster gene, a bleeding heart liberal gene, you name it, and everybody can be a victim :yahoo:
