The New Narcissism

imagesHave we finally reached the point where narcissism is no longer an epidemic but an institution?  Is this the legacy of the “Me Generation” of the ’70s, bequeathing a cultural norm of such enormous self-absorption that self-absorption has itself become a virtue?

Ask not what you can do for others; ask what you can demand that others must do for you.
