Today listening to the radio, I was enlightened by a new word which is “Narcissist“.
It’s similar to ‘arrogance’. Kesombongan dalam bahasa Melayu. There is even a book on this about this culture in the US.http://www.amazon.com/The-Culture-Narcissism-Diminishing-Expectations/dp/0393307387
Reading this article late night… The word was recalled inside my mind.
While Keller is not alone in his frustration that there are nearly 7,000 people living in San Francisco without homes, his letter is distinctive for its total lack of sympathy for the plight of those in difficult circumstances, focusing instead on the discomfort of the “wealthy”:
The residents of this amazing city no longer feel safe. I know people are frustrated about gentrification happening in the city, but the reality is, we live in a free market society. The wealthy working people have earned their right to live in the city. They went out, got an education, work hard, and earned it. I shouldn’t have to worry about being accosted. I shouldn’t have to see the pain, struggle, and despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day. I want my parents when they come visit to have a great experience, and enjoy this special place.
