Quote of the Day

On the codependent side of the coin, many individuals in England and America [following World War I] were similarly blinded by their righteous attachment to their "pacifist" ideologies -- to such a point that they could not recognize the inevitable danger to their own free society.  Like the entrenched codependent with the NPD (narcissistic personality disorder) individual, these groups regularly called for soul searching and an ever-increasing intention to reason with Hitler to prevent conflict.  Caught up in a stubborn denial, the pacifists were unable to recognize the important warning signs of malignant narcissism gathering strength in an entire nation of people.

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 160
