Quote of the Day

At the extreme end of the continuum, we see what happens when the malignant narcissist takes power.  These individuals often begin as the charismatic autocratic leader who can influence masses of people to abuse and violate the rights and/or boundaries of other groups or nations.  As free thinkers in a democratic society, we must learn to recognize and resist unhealthy narcissism in others and ourselves if we are to avoid and prevent the toxic and infectious nature of such movements.

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 164
