Narcissism in the media

Over the past few years, I have observed with growing unease an increase in narcissism in our society, particularly “communal narcissism”.
According to Dr Craig Malkin, who wrote the book, Rethinking Narcissism, communal narcissists regard themselves as especially nurturing, understanding and empathetic. They proudly announce how much they give to charity or how little they spend on themselves.
When my ex and I broke up, he declared, “I’ll always be a part of your life and you’ll always be a part of mine.” A statement that now seems as much a threat as a promise. Our relationship spanned my late teens to early twenties and was mentally, emotionally and at times, physically abusive. When we broke up, my ex insisted on remaining in my life as a “friend” – a term I use lightly.
Over-the-top narcissism, devious plots, and unhealthy relationships abound in the latest season of Hulu’s Difficult People—but this time, we’re in Trump’s America. Julie Klausner (Julie Kessler on the show) and Billy Eichner (Billy Epstein), who play two jaded aspiring comedians and best friends, star in the New York-centric comedy where pop culture is king and manners are left at the door.
Monday on radio, Glenn talked with Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and long-time friend. Glenn came to know Piper after reading his take on a student who felt victimized and voiced his discomfort at the university’s sermon regarding 1 Corinthians 13.
