Do you think sociopaths/psychopaths are more prevalent in society than we give them credit for?

Afterall there are high functioning sociopaths and they never take it to the level of Ted Bundy. They might be CEOs and what have you. Do you think capitalism/classism fosters narcissism and/or sociopathy (I understand they are different conditions)?

I was listening to a coast to coast am podcast and there was a guy who had written a book about this.

A psychopath may be a successful CEO with a family, but sociopaths tend to live on the fringes of society. Though psychiatrists often consider and treat sociopaths and psychopaths as the same, criminologists treat them as different because of the difference in their outward behavior.

They are everywhere.
Lots of people in power are sociopaths.
Like doctors and CEO’s.
