Are we becoming more self-obsessed than ever before?

 

A fascinating 7 minute video on ABC “The Drum” with Anne Manne, Author of “The Life of I”.

In particular why some individuals today exhibit incredible bursts of rage when criticised and who “demand” respect.

One thought on “Are we becoming more self-obsessed than ever before?

  1. I think the problem extends in both directions though …. There are people who should be given respect for certain things, and then we wonder why they reach a tipping point and “explode”. I don’t agree with what Elliott Rodger did but I’m not surprised. As some would say “there but for the grace of God goes I” (not that I want to attribute anything to “God” but you “catch my drift” and get the point I am trying to make I’m sure)
