The Israeli psychologist Sam Vaknin was was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), Vaknin made it his mission to learn how to cure this allegedly incurable affliction. He has one of the highest IQs ever measured, but as a child, his mother subjected him to mind-boggling physical and psychological abuse. Vaknin was also sent to college at the age of nine, which finished the job of ruining him.

Social media was built to create an addiction to it. Addiction is a feature, not a bug. Every single person who created social-media platforms is pathological in that he is not socialized. He is angry and childish, determined to impose his will on everyone as a form of revenge. The technology of social media itself transforms the users into becoming more like the people who created it.
And that’s why the users of social media can’t think. They choose to be “fooled” by non-stories over and over and over. When I was on social media, my attempt to explain things was ultimately futile. Users of social media want hysteria–anger, fear, aggression, and uncertainty. They want to feel that everything is horrible.
