In many ways we still live in a patriarchal society despite the tremendous inroads that provide equal opportunities in education and professional options to women not possible decades ago.
There are still some areas where narcissistic men are given a pass to do whatever they want. Remember the phrase "too big to fail". We can say about these men that they are "too important and powerful to be held accountable for any of their actions, even serious crimes." Unfortunately, there are too many men and women who defend these narcissistic dangerous human beings. These exploiters are often high level sociopath narcissists in professional positions of the highest power. Many people revere them because of their amassed wealth, their global connections and influence and the real and palpable influence that they hold over others. Everyone wants to be on this man's team, by his side as a marital partner. Their followers are bathed in the unction that the world pours on them.
Some of these men have committed the horrendous crime of raping women. Yes---No one wants to talk about that one.Often sociopathic narcissists brutalize women whom they view as below their social, educational and economic class. They know that they can get away with the sexual assaults because the victims will be frightened to charge them and if charged they will experience ridicule and full frontal bombardment from the narcissist's defense dream team. They have defended sociopathic narcissists before and gotten most of them off---even on the most heinous charges.
Some of these men rape their wives for years. The victims speak out only to friends who will hold their dark secrets. They remain married to these husbands from hell because they feel worthless, powerless and don't want to disrupt the image of the family they believe they must uphold.
Woman and men who see through the delusion of the sociopathic narcissist must speak up on a variety of fronts: ethical, legal, social, moral, psychological. Identify and unmask the sociopathic narcissist. To learn about the narcissistic personality in-depth, visit my website:thenarcissistinyourlife.com
