Narcissistic Society

 -- Quote of the Day -- 

“…We are moving away from relationships each other and towards relationships with objects and creatures that do not create pain in our lives – because we move away from pain and towards pleasure. …We all want to be valued and in our relationships in this culture people feel anxious, nervous, and distracted – 50% of the time people are not even paying attention to what they are doing. …Changing behavior goes against everything we have done to stay safe – the limbic system is the emotional, reactive brain part. The brain wave of the child is taking in information, absorbing everything – once we go through puberty our brain changes to Beta. …It is all about autonomy, self-governing, of being in control of our lives. …When we start talking in terms of ‘should’ we are judging; that you are not smart, you are not being appropriate, that you are not good enough. …Our culture is narcissistic - We are more concerned with what I think, what am I going to say, how can I get them to do what I think they should do.”
