Malignant Narcissism as Culture - Where Evil Grows


by Paul Levy

Psychologically speaking, Mr. George W. Bush is what is called a ‘malignant narcissist.’ A narcissist is someone who has become hypnotized and entranced by their own inflated self-image. They have become so self-absorbed that not only are they not in genuine relation with others, but they relate to others (including the environment) as objects to satisfy their own need for self-aggrandizement. A ‘malignant’ narcissist, however, is a narcissist who reacts sadistically to others who don't support and enable their narcissism. For example, instead of self-reflecting and taking in critical feedback, the Bush administration reacts with ruthless contempt for anyone who disagrees with them. Like a mean and cruel-spirited malignant narcissist, Bush and Co. deny the accusation and try to destroy the messenger. Ultimately, a malignant narcissist wants to annihilate anyone who in any way threatens their illusory self-image and self-serving agenda.

To quote the great doctor of the soul, psychiatrist C. G. Jung “only a very small fraction of so-called psychopaths land in the asylum. The overwhelming majority of them constitute that part of the population which is alleged to be “normal.”” And, I might add, that many of these so-called seemingly ‘normal’ psychopaths are drawn to positions of power. Malignant narcissists are very skilled at entrancing others, at putting other’s under their spell. They are master hypnotists. They are like ‘black magicians,’ in that they are very talented at hooking others through their fear by using ‘mind-control’ techniques such as lying and propaganda to control them.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation produced a special entitled "Where Are the Children", http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/cinemareal/where.html that addresses the capture and selling of children in South America throughout the Iran Contra affair. The CIA, working with Mr. Negroponte had locals trained at the School of Americas...who then worked for the CIA. Families throughout Bolivia, Chile, El Salvador - and the Honduras - ESPECIALLY if they were (are) poor - have had their children stolen and sold to families in the USA or to prostitution rings - a thriving trade that destroyed the entire fabric of poor indigenous families in South America. THIS is what the head of national intelligence of the USA is most known for, along with drug running and death squads - then altering reports to congress to cover his tracks.

An excerpt: "Hundreds, if not thousands of children, were abducted in the chaos and fighting of El Salvador's civil war. They were put up for adoption around the world. Years passed, but many mothers and fathers refused to give up hope that they might be able to find their child out there somewhere. Now one priest has made it his mission to find the missing, and his organization is reuniting children with the biological families they didn't know they had.See the CBC News: Correspondent site for more information and link on this story. Joan Leishman, former CBC News correspondent for Latin America follows the detective work of Pro-Busqueda staffers as they travel to remote areas to question families, take DNA samples and psychologically prepare families for reunions. And she talks to Father Cortina about his work, his passion for El Salvador and his faith in the face of the evils he has witnessed....Like the Bush family, Negroponte operates completely above International Law, American domestic law or the Geneva convention. He changes human rights reports with apparent impunity or simply lies without reprecussion. He too is clearly above the law.For some in the world there are no laws, unfortunately those people have stolen the highest office in the land where they direct military contracts to the monopolistic corporate treason controlling the world. They quite literally use us as slaves to fund their evil.

Malignant narcissists are not conscious of the interconnectedness between themselves and others. They are unable to feel empathy for others and have an overwhelming lack of genuine compassion (so much for compassionate conservatism). Concerned about nothing other than themselves, malignant narcissists are indifferent to other people’s suffering, all the while, though, professing their compassion. Malignant narcissists are unable to genuinely mourn, for they are ultimately only concerned with themselves. They will show grief, however, just like they will try and appear compassionate, if it is politically correct to do so and, hence, to their advantage, as they are master manipulators. They are a true ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing.’

Tables and Lists of USA Actions Since 1945

USA Backed CoupsMilitary coups and changes of government, planned, organised or backed by the USA. The reasons given (Communism, terrorism, drugs, fundamentalism) are compared with the actual reasons (oil, minerals, political influence, business interests, military bases).

USA InterventionsMilitary or political interventions, invasions, bombings, military aid, sanctions, and terrorist activity by the USA against countries and popular movements. As with coups, the reasons given for the interventions are usually very different from the actual reasons. Many of these actions remain secret for many years.

USA UN VetosIn the United Nations (UN), there are five countries that can veto a UN resolution. These five are the permanent members of the Security Council: USA, UK, France, Russia, and China. The USA has used its veto more times than all the other countries put together. This is a list of UN resolutions vetoed by the USA. The record of the USA voting patterns is generally under reported in the Western media.

USA CompaniesThis is the involvement of USA owned companies in activities around the world. Often undemocratic regimes are favoured because of their harsh or non-existant labour laws, lax pollution controls, low taxations and lack of human rights.

USA Nuclear, Biological and ChemicalThe USA military budget is higher than the combined total of the next fifteen countries. The USA possesses nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. This is a listing of their use and testing around the world.

USA Victims of Foreign PolicyVictims of terrorism who are American or Western are publicised around the world's media. Their lives are commemorated and their deaths mourned. This is a conservative estimation of the numbers of victims of USA foreign policy (direct and indirect). Most of these figues are available in the public domain but are not publicised.


Indeed Bush, Cheney and this entire malignant pack, need only look in one place to find the axis of evil - the mirror.
