I know what many of you reading this are thinking, "Isn't that the same thing? What's the difference?" And while maybe people who are amoral are eerily similar to those who are immoral, and vice versa, there is actually a key difference that distinguishes the two.
An amoral person is who either has no morals or has no comprehension of morals. In cases of the latter (a person who doesn't understand the concept of morals), they are someone who literally does not know right from wrong, who performs horrid acts soley for their own benefit. These people are psychopaths. Keep in mind that one doesn't have to be a machete or chainsaw wielding murderer to be a psychopath.
Immoral people, on the other hand, DO know right from wrong but choose to do evil things and make others suffer not necessarily because they want to get ahead of everyone else and be the best, but because fuck them and everyone near them. These people are not psychopaths, but sociopaths.

Now, let's say there are these two men in death row who had committed the same crime. But one is a psychopath, and the other is a sociopath. Who would you consider to be inherently worse? The one who does not know right from wrong but also has no remorse or guilt, or the one who does know right from wrong but also has remorse and guilt?
