The Narco-Socio Syndrome in Government

Impeachment and the Narco-Socio Syndrome in Government

Alexander Burgemeester’s, “The Narcissistic Life- All you need to know about Narcissists”, stated “Most [narcissists] show grandiose thinking and exaggerated self-importance, many believe or fantasize about the power they have, most believe they are special, need to be admired and feel entitled. Many dictators and criminals had or have narcissistic personalities as well as the Hollywood celebrities; some are negative role models and some are positive.”

Avery Stine[1], author of the new book, The New Evolution of Man – Living in the Shadows of Narcissism, stated, “I have been a victim of narcissists and sociopath personality types throughout my entire life. Among my parents, siblings, children, and relationships, both business and professional, I have been wounded and will carry the scars for the rest of my life.”  Unless an individual has experienced the psychological roller coaster and mental abuses of these personality types it is difficult to recognize them, and even more difficult to see the absolute damage they can cause and the pain they leave in their wake. It doesn’t matter how kind hearted, caring, and generous you are, a person with these types of personality disorders will target you if you do not support them or their agenda. If you are perceived as smarter, highly motivated, talented, or more professional than a narcissist or sociopath, they won’t compete with you as a better qualified individual, they will simply work to discredit you. These charismatic personality types are captivating and can “encapsulate” your attention to the point where you cannot see anything but their vision. Even when they are doing something wrong their supporters will back them because their psychological hold is so strong, that they can’t see past what they want, and the supporters can’t see past what you want for the narcissist. This is why it is so important that President Trump keep his supporters and family so close. To their own detriment, his family members are already captivated by him and he can do no wrong. I believe that we are living in the shadows of a narcissist president”, said Stine. “If I am right, then our country is in big trouble”, Stine warned.

In The New Evolution of Man – Living in the Shadows of Narcissism, Stine states that she believes there is an epidemic of these personality disorders in domestic and global leadership. She calls this pandemic the “narco-socio syndrome.”  “These individuals do not have the social conscience required to feel empathy toward their victims nor simple consideration for the damage and pain they inflict on their victims. They are elitist types who see themselves as intellectuals, whether they have the credentials or not, and are very charismatic and extremely convincing. They have mastered the art of negotiation, and negation”, said Stine.

According to Psychology today, Narcissism is on the rise among individuals and in American culture. The world is becoming plagued by these personality types in business, media, and within our political systems, and people who have never suffered at the hands of these disorders are coming to know them only too well through national media, social media, and through the personality types, themselves.

“Every day, we are bombarded by President Trumps Twitter tweets. These tweets exhibit classic signs of narcissism. Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has exhibited classic signs of a sociopath. Looking back on her political career it is not difficult to see the obvious patterns of disregard for rules and laws that all citizens are expected to uphold, but which she has been pardoned for throughout her political career”, Stine continued.

The book discusses connections to these personality disorders within the U.S. military, which Stine believes mass produces these personality types at the higher echelons. “Everyone has something in their past that has scarred them”, Said Stine. “Unfortunately, there are people who enter the military who have been damaged in their youth. Some of these individuals become military leaders. These leaders rise through the ranks and when they retire at a higher leadership level, they provide support toward furthering these personality types which become further embedded within government contracts and programs. These contracts produce millions upon millions of dollars for big business; this money is filtered back into the pockets of political leaders, further spreading the epidemic of these personality disorders throughout business and government. I have personally experienced these personality types throughout the eight years I spent overseas where I have been victimized, minimized, and destroyed by these same types of personality disorders. I have been discredited and demeaned, devalued, and have been psychologically traumatized into thinking there was something wrong with me”, said Stine.

According to e-article titled, “Surviving the Narcissist Epidemic”, Pathological narcissists often thrive in the workplace because supervisors, HR departments and co-workers simply do not understand what they are dealing with or what to do about it. Their harassment, manipulation, gas lighting, and smear campaigns against other employees go unnoticed or are brushed off.” Gaslighting is a technique of emotional and psychological manipulation. The abuser deliberately attacks the victim psychologically over a period of time in order to make the victim doubt his or her own sense of reality and sanity. How many times has President Trump used these types of attacks on his opponents?

The article states, “Targeted employees are labeled overly-sensitive, reactionary types or as outright liars by supervisors and other co-workers who don’t understand what is really going on. The entire workplace can become a situation where the narcissist has turned everyone against the targeted employee. People who do notice something is wrong or doesn’t make sense don’t say anything because they don’t want to get involved. The narcissist depends on non-action to keep tormenting victims.” I have lived this torment and have experienced this kind of treatment during the entire time I was working overseas which is over-saturated with these personality types”, admits Stine. “It’s incredibly debilitating”, said Stine.

The U.S. political system is over burdened with these personality disorders. “If you think about it, we have had these personality types in leadership for centuries but no one recognized them because we didn’t know what to look for”, Stine said. “I suspect that it is how Adolf Hitler came into power.” she stated. However, with today’s technology and social media rants where people are doing and saying whatever they please internal opinions and beliefs are becoming externalized, and these affected people’s “true colors” are being revealed. Narcissism can be contagious, albeit at a temporary level, and it is not unreasonable to believe that the world is preparing to suffer the first ever psychological pandemic. We are seeing it reaching across the globe with Russia, North Korea, and Middle Eastern countries whose leaders are extreme narcissists. “In the U.S. these personality traits are exhibited in our news media, Hollywood celebrities, and politicians, creating distrust in the very systems that we rely upon for our safety and security, Stine cautioned.

Section 3 of the 25th Amendment states, “The President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

“It is my believe that President Trump is not aware that he is incapable of discharging his duties because I don’t believe that either he or his administration, which is made up of the same “family” of narcissism, is capable of recognizing that he [they] is[are] suffering from these personality disorders”, Stine said.  “I believe that mpeachment is necessary to help remove this unstable personality and to help move our country back in the right direction”, said Stine.

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment states, “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

“If we are waiting for President Trump to admit that he has a psychological disorder, we will be waiting a long time, and in the meantime, the very fabric of our democracy is in danger. Instead, we should be calling upon Vice-President Pence to unseat President Trump. I understand his loyalty to the President, but his loyalty should be toward the American people and our nation. How could we fault Vice President Pence for looking after the best interests of our country? Can’t he see what is happening in our country and around the world? Our country is in jeopardy, and Vice-President Pence appears to be content to sit in the back seat just watching the train wreck. With all due respect, Mr. Pence, you are in a position to see what is happening. Please, do something!” Stine implored.
