"In spite of the narcissist’s aura of grandiosity and bubble of self-sufficiency, the narcissistic individual is extremely thin-skinned.  This individual constantly takes offense at the way people treat him/her (e.g., they don't treat him/her with enough respect and don't appreciate this individual enough) and frequently feels mistreated.

When a societal problem grows to become all encompassing, we often no longer even notice it."
