    That's some mighty long words there my friend ;)

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    What's the DSM V code for that?  I heard something about NPD on NPR today.

    Symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    The definition of NPD states that it comprises of a persistent manner of grandiosity, a continuous desire for admiration, along with a lack of empathy. It starts by early adulthood and occurs in a range of situations, as signified by the existence of any 5 of the next 9 standards (American Psychiatric Association, 2013):

    • A grandiose logic of self-importance
    • A fixation with fantasies of infinite success, control, brilliance, beauty, or idyllic love
    • A credence that he or she is extraordinary and exceptional and can only be understood by, or should connect with, other extraordinary or important people or institutions
    • A desire for unwarranted admiration
    • A sense of entitlement
    • Interpersonally oppressive behavior
    • No form of empathy
    • Resentment of others or a conviction that others are resentful of him or her
    • A display of egotistical and conceited behaviors or attitudes

    Did any of you see that video some Hollywood libs made in an attempt to get the electoral vote to go the other way? Imagine the conversation early on, lib one says "I have a great idea, we will make a video urging the voters to flip, and we will use celebrities." Lib two says "who do you have, Damon, Pitt, Clooney?" Lib one says "no, the girl from Will and Grace, and Loretta Swit, who has not been relevant since the 1970's and has had about 17 too many plastic surgeries."

    Good observation, Brent.  I ran those people through this filter and they definitely have it.  Good thing the president elect doesn't exhibit any of those symptoms.

    What does it mean if someone does have NPD?

    If someone does have “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” they can, indeed, wake up, see a Tweet or a news report from a foreign leader criticizing him, mocking him, calling him “weak” or threatening his ego in any way and order some kind of impulsive, vindictive, punishing, immediate response that could include an unhinged order to attack that foreign leader or foreign country with military force, even including the authorization of nuclear weapons.

    It is extremely likely that there would be some kind of impulsive, angry diplomatic response.

    Because someone afflicted with this incurable and progressive “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” simply can’t help himself.

    Here’s why:

    1. People with NPD are extremely sensitive and insecure. They psychologically require constant compliments and acknowledgement because they do not have their own internal self-esteem. They need to get it from others.

    2. If someone does criticize them, even in a Tweet or on a television comedy show, it triggers this deep and painful lack of self-esteem and they MUST lash out to relieve the pain of the criticism.

    3. They have only two modes: They are either fully your friend and love you or you are their enemy and they will do everything to discredit you or humiliate you. They can’t help it. The pain of having someone in their circle who does not approve of them or acknowledge them, (almost constantly), is too great.  

    4. There are only two ways to deal with someone with NPD, and they are both dangerous. There is no healthy way of interacting with someone with this affliction. If you criticize them they will lash out at you and if they have a great deal of power, that can be consequential. If you compliment them it only acts to increase the delusional and grandiose reality the sufferer has created, causing him to be even more reliant on constant and endless compliments and unwavering support.

    5. Because they crave the attention and approval of others they develop great capacity to engage and entertain and can be quite charismatic, even to the point of developing a cult-like following.

    6. Someone with NPD will NEVER get along with any member of the press, or any media outlet that criticizes him. 

    7. Someone with NPD will NEVER hire (and will fire) anyone who criticizes him. Therefore, and because they believe they know better than almost everyone else, they have a very hard time listening and taking any advice.

    Concerns Expressed by Mental Health Professionals

    The President of The United State and Commander in Chief is the only American who has ANY say over the mobilization of The United States Military, the authorization of a military strike on a perceived or real enemy and the launch of any and all of the weapons possessed by The United States Military, including 7,000 nuclear warheads.

    There is no “Fail Safe”. There is no “Team”. There is no thoughtful review.

    The National Security Advisor, The Secretary of Defense, The Secretary of State, The Joint Chiefs of State and every General in the military can all emphatically say “NO!” but if The Commander in Chief wants to initiate military and even nuclear action, NO ONE can stop him. American law does not allow a military officer to make those decisions.

    Only a civilian, The President, elected by The American People can access the nuclear codes. Only that President can use the nuclear codes.

    And if he does, the military is duty bound to follow his order.

    A President and Commander in Chief who does have Narcissistic Personality Disorder would be very dangerous to all Americans, and the world.

    When either Hitler or SemolinaPrickard enter into a discussion, it's usually a signal of the end of a factual conversation.  Learned that on this forum. ;)

    Are you sure? Something looks amiss.  Can't quite put my finger on it though.
