Canadian-born writer Mark Steyn says it well and with wit. Steyn’s article at the link below reveals the future of Obama’s “progressive” America. Read it and see the future of your children and grandchildren.
The United States is Detroit, the nation and city with narcissist politicians who justify their behavior and policies by their perception of other people. A healthy psyche with integrated morality would not be blaming other people for their own actions, feelings and inadequacies. “They locked their car doors when I approached, until I became a Senator,” is intentionally disconnected by a character disorder from crime rate statistics and the underlying cause of the statistic. He looks away, ignoring anything that distorts his narcissist image.
The President ignores the facts of life in the black community and America as a whole. In the character disordered narcissistic mind, the fact that almost all terrorist murders have been perpetrated by a single group is twisted into his policies which spread fear and increase his and the group’s power. The President forbids use of the term Islamic terrorist or similar. “I did it because I could,” is the mental state of a man or woman who walks on the waters of their own mind.
Always blaming others, blaming the scared lady in the elevator who clutches her purse, instead of recognizing himself and his absent parents as the cause of his self-loathing, and then taking responsibility for himself, the leader of the so-called “progressive” movement is missing the morality that comes from being grounded in natural law and family values. No parent told him, “Stop that! Now!” Today’s Congress and courts are mostly ducks of the same narcissist feather.
Narcissist politicians instinctively blame those who fear them; Bible and gun clingers have the high moral ground and, in the narcissist mind, they must be put on the defensive and brought down to the narcissist’s level at all costs. Narcissist character disorders will say and do anything to fill their emotional void. “I did it because I could,” said Bill Clinton of his abuse of power and young intern Lewinsky.
Politics is their chosen career, suasion and cant are their skills, and they have no morals but self. For them, morals and God are pablum for the people. With no one to blame for their own deep self loathing, they defend the Trayvon Martins of the world because they know they could have been Trayvon had it not been for the helping hands of others…the narcissist did not build it himself…and those helpful others are despised and eventually thrown under the bus. They realize that many among the throng on perpetual welfare and government employ suffer with their same moral affliction, and so that throng becomes their political constituency, their hoodies, their unions, their praetorian guard, and their judges.
“Hope is itself a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords; but, like all other pleasures immoderately enjoyed, the excesses of hope must be expiated by pain. . . . ” ~ Dr. Samuel Johnson.
