Narcissistic Woundedness

If Hitler’s Holocaustis just like Trump, it is no longer a uniquely barbarous episode in history. It diminishes it, it makes it mundane and normal.

Few things compare in intensity with the suffering of a narcissist in whose presence somebody shares a story of personal misfortune.

“But me too! Me! I also had this happen to me! But it was even worse!” the narcissist frets.

  1. If CCCP gulags are just like Trump’s critics, it is no longer a uniquely barbarous episode in history. It diminishes it, it makes it mundane and normal.

    There’s not only one side to this stupid tango.

    1. The word gulag doesn’t have a plural, by the way. It stands for the “chief administrative office of labor camps.”

      Today’s moment doesn’t remind me of Stalinism. It reminds me of the late Brezhnev era. There was definitely nothing unique about it. There were no atrocities or anything like that. But intellectually refreshing it definitely was not.

      1. I should’ve said “gulag camps”.

        Trumpists are also affected by that kind of snowflakery, then call any Democrat a dangerous communist and any anti-Trump conservative a leftist or a globalist.

        No, it’s less shitty than in the late Brezhnev era (although this was way less shitty than other CCCP leaders), there is still plenty of democracy in the US.
