I have been looking at LOTS of videos on narcissism lately because I allowed myself to get sucked into a real war wiith a malignant narcissistic predator. Among the many videos that cover this topic there is one long one that really stood out. I'm not linking it here because the speaker in it is the most deeply anti-Black racist I have ever encountered (and I have had encounters wiith Aryan Brotherhood types!) but outside of the gratuitous remarks she made about racial groups she had some very interesting things to say about Narcissistic Personality Disorder. She used the term Diabolical Narcissist instead of Severe or Malignant Narcissist. This got me to thinking about not only the narcissistic character of Satan that is presented in the Bible, but also the process or dynamics of how the Narcissist "creates reality". And how our culture, in fostering narcissistic traits the way it does, is conjuring Satan. Most of the psychological literature is secular and if it mentions religion it is only to discuss the tendency of narcissists to gravitate to elaborate liturgies and authoritarian cults, but not to discuss the rise of full-blown Satanism as a recognized mainstream religion. Then there's the whole idolatry and Jungian archetypal emergence thing... I am beginning to sense Narcissism as the wind or force that is driving our civilization to the edge of Armaggeddon, the evil force that is like a supercell storm blowing through the world. What do you think?
