The psychology of a self-rightous worldview

Quote from a piece by Byron York titled, Why is the left so angry.

"People who are deeply invested in narcissism spend an awful lot of energy trying to maintain the illusion they have of themselves as being powerful and good, and they are exquisitely sensitive to anything that might prick that balloon.- "William Anderson, medical doctor, and a lecturer in psychiatry at Harvard.

It is no wonder the left's causes take on a pseudo-religious faith in their certainty (i.e.global warming), and why they advance their beliefs from a purely emotional and ideological dogma. Their anger is misdirected fear that their worldview might come crashing down, like a house of cards, if heaven forbid anything indeed challenged their "reality." It affirms a life of identity confusion being played out as self-assurednesss. -dk
