Social Security wil be fine once it's privatized. There's a myth that privatizing social security would put it in the hands of cocaine-high Wall Street psychopaths, but it turns out that Wall Streeters are quite different from psychopaths:

According to a new study conducted at a Swiss university, it may be because share traders behave more recklessly and are more manipulative than psychopaths...

...they behaved more egotistically and were more willing to take risks than a group of psychopaths who took the same test."

Particularly shocking for Noll was the fact that the bankers weren't aiming for higher winnings than their comparison group. Instead they were more interested in achieving a competitive advantage. Instead of taking a sober and businesslike approach to reaching the highest profit, "it was most important to the traders to get more than their opponents," Noll explained. "And they spent a lot of energy trying to damage their opponents."

Using a metaphor to describe the behavior, Noll said the stockbrokers behaved as though their neighbor had the same car, "and they took after it with a baseball bat so they could look better themselves."
Brother Trent, I am a bit suspicious about that particular report. Remember the Swiss have holes in their cheese. Might not that report have holes in it too?
