Narcissism Is Good.
Lathe of Heaven asked a great question in the comments.
Remember, the fastest way to become a believer in one’s own HV, in absence of evidence, is to become a self-centered, narcissistic jerk; in fact, believing excessively in your own value without evidence is practically the definition of narcissism. Do you really want to risk leading the omegas into this temptation?
That’s exactly what I want Omegas to do. Is there any good reason to hate yourself?
I am 100% deadly serious about this.
