Narcissism

It is important to have good self esteem.  It is important to feel good about yourself.  Every human is made in the image of God.  We are all valuable because we can worship God.  We can all contribute to society in some way.

In our society we have taken self esteem and feeling good about yourself to extremes.  We have become a nation of narcissists.  We care only about ourselves.  We don't want to do anything unless it is for our immediate and personal benefit.

We shout out, "Who is God to tell me what to do!"  We see our fellow humans as less than ourselves.  We see something bad happen and we think only to videotape it, rather than to help.  We want a film to show our friends.  We are too narcissistic to care that we are bankrupting our nation with welfare.  We need to get better at being part of the human family; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
