Reglious Extremists Form Narcissistic Sects

December16

tumblr_nc25riXb941sqfasuo1_500 Look at the definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder:

“Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a Cluster B personality disorder[1] in which a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and to others in the process. It is estimated that this condition affects one percent of the population.[2][3] First formulated in 1968, NPD was historically called megalomania, and is a form of severe egocentrism.[4]”

Once Were Warriors – in dedication to the hostages of the Sydney Siege

Once Were Warriors by Donna Williams

Once Were Warriors by Donna Williams

Once Were Warriors by Donna Williams[/caption] Once Were Warriors by Donna Williams. In dedication to the heroic hostages of the Sydney Siege which ended 2am this morning. Painted today, 16/12/14. (sorry its blurred, better pic tomorrow in daylight). In the painting I see the chaos of the night…their lives in the control of a madman, the sights, smells, words, the warrior within waiting to conquer the madness of that night, the sleep those people didn’t get, the surrealism, the nightmare all but two were rescued from. This is my artists prayer for the survivors and my tribute to those who lost their lives that night saving others.

Haron Monis was mentally ill

December16

ad_154682108 Haron Monis was a personality disordered person, exhibiting narcissistic personality disorder with associated pathological self righteousness, violent misogyny, and delusions of grandeur who was likely also fueled by some level of PTSD. When charged with sexual assault in March this year, he had set himself up as an expert in “astrology, numerology, meditation and black magic” services, which seems completely at odds with his vision of himself as a devout muslim of any kind whatsoever. My view is that like anyone with significant personality disorders underpinning their deranged behaviour, he was a mentally ill person. We can hate and demonise Haron Monis as much as we might any psychopath, any severely personality disordered human being in the wake of the damage done. But until we face that we are overlooking many many many personality disordered people as those with mental illness, we will not deal appropriately with those who are born, or become this way before they do these deeds.

Pandora, Avatar and vamping up my ventilation

VPAP S9 Auto Adapt

VPAP S9 Auto Adapt

I’m on ventilation due to an Acquired Central Hypoventilation Syndrome which means I can’t fall asleep without my machine… anywhere. My machine is named Pandora… after the movie Avatar as Sam Worthington uses a ventilator in that film which allows him to survive in Pandora. I decided to vamp up Pandora. Got the glitz from a craft shop. Read the rest of this entry »

Professor Barry Spurr, Christopher Pyne, Tony Abbott and those emails

October19

Christopher Pyne and Tony Abbott

Christopher Pyne and Tony Abbott

In the recent New Matilda article: Professor Barry Spurr Is The Smoking Gun Of Institutional Racism By Chris Graham, Professor Spur was quoted directly:

TO: Barry Spur
FROM: (CLOSE FRIEND)

Goodness, what different times.

Today, (A COLLEAGUE) told me of a problem at (A COMPANY). Some harlot (A WOMAN) went back to a room party when her key would not work and waiting, went to sleep on the bed. Another (PERSON AT THAT COMPANY) put his penis in her mouth, as you do, and she called the police.

I told (MY COLLEAGUE) she was a worthless slut who will now cause this poor chap, who certainly did not adhere to Debretts, years of imprisonment with big black chaps because she is a worthless slut who should not have been there. In Dubai, she would be locked up as well. The muzzies are not all wrong about this.”

Professor Spurr replied to the email the following day.

Reeling from that story. Ye Gods. I think she needs a lot put in her mouth, permanently, and then stitched up.

Barry Humphries, pedophilia and Bell Street Preston

October11

THE HOUSE:
Donna Williams aged 8 with GTS convertible When I was born, my parents lived in a rented house at 7 Rowell Ave in Camberwell. They moved when I was a week old, first to Thornbury, then to Regent, and then in the summer of January 1972, when I was 8 years old, my family moved from the small rented house into a big two story house at 664 Bell St Preston. By mid 1972 they had put in a built-in swimming pool, well supplied bar, snooker table, chandeliers, mirror walls, and filled with antiques and racks of guns displayed openly on the walls. There was a revolver in the drawer of the front dresser just inside the front door. Read the rest of this entry »
