The Psychological Explanation for the Age of Trump
Here’s an interesting article I discovered that helps explain the state of American politics from its polarization to why Trump appealed to so many people.
It mentioned one concept I hadn’t heard of before: group narcissism. It’s the concept of individual narcissism applied to groups. This helps explain white supremacists and BernieBros in my mind.
The aphorism, “We are not thinking machines. We are feeling machines that think,” kept popping into my mind as I read it.
