It's official: we need help

Robert Jensen reads the DSM-IV and draws the only possible conclusion - the United States is suffering from narcissistic personality disorder:
  1. a grandiose sense of self-importance.
  2. preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
  3. believes he or she is special and unique.
  4. requires excessive admiration.
  5. sense of entitlement.
  6. interpersonally exploitative, taking advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.
  7. lacks empathy.
  8. often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
  9. shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.
