Moral Narcissism


I Know Best:  How Moral Narcissism Is Destroying Our Republic, If It Hasn’t Already, by Roger L. Simon, New York: Encounter Books, June 14, 2016

In the above book, Simon states the following:

“Moral narcissism … is a way of explaining away evil, blaming all ills on social causes and therefore pushing back the necessity of examining the human soul or one’s own, of not seeing the possible darkness within[.] … [M]oral narcissism obscures reality and therefore threatens democracy. That not everything is perfectible, that there is evil in the world, and that evil is likely to remain forever.”

Consider this when thinking about our present political arena.  Can you think of any one person, that is presently in office, that portrays this kind of attitude?  Is this the type of person, or people, you want to lead this country?

Simply consider the above, very seriously, and go from there.
