Collective Narcissism
« on: December 15, 2016, 10:56:30 am »
This just ran across my screen, and I think it might offer some interesting insights into our current predicaments.

Quote
The new findings suggest that any politician who ferments in their followers a grandiose belief in the in-group, combined with encouraging them to believe the in-group is being insulted or slighted by others, is arguably fostering collective narcissism and sowing the seeds for future conflict and hostility. One positive way to intervene might be to see if collective narcissists can be encouraged to channel their envy and sensitivity toward constructively helping their in-group rather than harming out-groups.

If the answer is Donald J Trump then it must have been a fucking stupid question.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Hmm, interesting.

Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

It sounds like a bunch of Hollywood actors or privileged rich university students.

Wow, are you able to type anything that doesn't betray a profound level of ignorance and complete lack of critical thinking skills?
