Hilarious Narcissists 

This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read:

I have been all over the world and have witnessed some rough scenes, but . . . America is still one of the harshest places I have ever been to. For a large fraction of the American population, this country is a coast-to-coast school of hard knocks and sucker punches.

And the best part is that the darn narcissist seems actually to mean it. Must be one of those people who refer to themselves as “a survivor” after having a bad hair day.

It doesn’t matter how much information is available, how easy it is to travel and learn about the world, people will still believe whatever self-serving bunch of lies makes them feel more important.

    Well that quote does come from Henry Rollins, who used to be part of the punk rock band Black Flag

    The funny thing is that some of that article resembles things you’d say. 😛

    The “safety net” is more pretty talk than anything else. The real safety net is drugs, tobacco, alcohol, cheap food, free porn and other ways to cheaply distract oneself from the pain of contemporary general population lockdown. There’s no safety in any of it, just something to get you through for a little while.

    I know, I know. It’s hilarious when you’re glancingly familiar with places that don’t have safety nets.


    • Of course, resembles, I mean, we both use the letters of the alphabet. 😁😁


      • The safety people seek through addiction is the one they didn’t have in early infancy (before 1.5 years of age). It’s oral stage traumas.

        The money problems are anal stage traumas from 1.5 to 2.5 years of age. These traumas exist independently of each other. This is why money doesn’t cure addiction. Many very rich people- artists, actors, singers, for instance- are addicts.
