  1. Ik erger me nogal behoorlijk aan de nieuwe rage. Alsof je elke idioot kwijt kan onder de stoornis narcisme. Ik denk dat de mensen die echt met een narcist van de zuiverste soort te maken hebben zich door deze nieuwe rage nog meer onbegrepen voelen. De echte narcisten zullen lekker gedijen in deze nieuwe rage. Zij zijn zeer hip en voorzagen jaren geleden al dat zij het voortouw namen in deze normale gang van ontwikkeling in de maatschappij.
