If I'm not mistaken, Barack Obama is the 1st politician and high profile person to practice narcissistic selfie without a shame..! However, it was planned as part of the sociopolitical image as tailored by his aids and advisers.. What matters is how many politician do the same at their bedrooms, bathrooms and make-up rooms.. Certainly all of them..
Grandiose Narcissism sounds essential for leadership and domination, which no political establishment would survive without..
Vulnerable Narcissism sounds spreading around the world with inadequate education philosophies and moral systems; generating floods of incompetence, vulgarism and criminality everywhere..
Yet, I think it is not only a personal psychological disorder, but a community one too.. many nations are narcissistic some way or another.. Some nations are disconnected from the universe.. Some nations are unable to coexist with others.. Some only stand up by plural hostility.. Most nations can't accept peaceful resolutions for border, geopolitical or resources conflicts..
Simply because of Politicians and Media, which survive on peoples' anxiety and ignorance.. Survive on the 70% commons who truly care only for shelter, bread and reproduction.. Whenever a need to feel free from these urban slavery; politician and media would create national confrontations or dreams..
It seems immortal characteristic of our Mankind legacy...
