Narcissistic Personality Disorders Entrenched and Encouraged in Corporate America - by Once Bitten, Twice Shy
The U.S. corporatist consumer culture is a breeding ground for individuals with narcissistic personality disorder. Though many activists (including myself) disagree with psychiatric labels, remaining ignorant about the reality of personality disorders, especially narcissism, can result in painful outcomes.

H.R. 3530 is the latest in a series of legislation which purportedly aims to “help” individuals classified as “victims of human trafficking” by expanding governmental powers of electronic surveillance, treating customers identically with principals and organizers and curtailing the due process rights of defendants.
