Quote of the Day

... envy is the primary conscious feeling that drives the NPD (narcissistic personality disorder) individual to compete and surpass those whom he regards as more powerful and/or successful.  The sociopath-narcissist will obsessively focus on those individuals, groups, or nations who represent the pinnacle of power and success, devising and conspiring ways to overthrow them.  Just as Hitler demonstrated with his book, Mein Kampf, Bin Laden also made no secret of his intentions to destroy the United States, progressively vilifying all Americans whom he saw as the source of "Muslim shame."

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 157
