What a load of crap. It has nothing whatsoever to do with narcissism. It appears you don't even know what the hell the word means. Because I read the words literally or see it differently than you I'm a narcissist? If anything even making that statement proves beyond a doubt you are the narcissist. You're so infatuated with your own self proclaimed "expertise" you feel it's impossible for anyone to disagree with you and not have some mental deficiency. Dan and a few others also have this infatuation with your own grandness.
Whatever, this frigging board is filled with narcissists. All one has to do is look at how you guys respond to disagreement and how "you" routinely rely on the fact that "you" know because "you" are some kind of expert therefore "you" are correct because you are superior. Look no farther than the mirror sir, you are the narcissist as are most who post in defense of the government here. The truth is most of you are anonymous nobodies who have found an outlet to satisfy your need to feed your own narcissism.
I had an acquaintaince a few years back who was very caught up in narcissistic personality disorder, and it was obvious that he really did not realize that most people were not nearly as interested in HIS thoughts, HIS beliefs, HIS desires, HIS interests. He really did not have a strong grasp of how disliked he was among other people; he was simply so self-centered that he could not use objective criteria -- criteria imposed on an outside "authority" as a basis for evaluating himself or his daily life. Everything in the world, in his mind, was about what HE believed, what HE desired, what HE was interested in.
It seems your are speaking in the third person. What you have described is the personality of most on this board. If people do not accept what your beliefs, desires or interests are, they're morons, undereducated imbeciles and just downright mentally deficient. This is why you have such an infatuation with TP's, it's your avenue to proclaim how superior you are to other people. You have the courts, who are appointed by and paid for by the very entity under discussion, to agree with you. Of course the same could be said about every other supporter of government under any regime, including the most evil of them. Intellectual discussion be damned, they can say anything no matter how stupid or unreasonable and its right in your mind. To prove this you have others who think just like you to agree, that's your proof. It's just like Gore, the issue is settled, everyone who matters agrees with him. Of course the only one's that matter to him are the one's who agree with him. It's the perfect narcissistic environment for you.
