Trump / Narcisism / Dysfunctional democracy as ego validation.


#1

So about 2 AM this morning I had this thought:

Our nation really has reinforced and confirmed Trump’s own self importance & narcissism. We not only as a country made him one of the most powerful people in the world, we assuaged the part of him that needed that to be recognized.

We didn’t just cosign ourselves to a political nightmare. We uplifted and fulfilled the most rarefied narcissistic of his wishes. We validated his ego in a way that can’t possibly be matched.

@Maiki thought this should be shared here, possibly for input from other psychohistorians or anyone familiar with the seldon plan really.
