Keep in mind Vaknin is an atheist, so he uses “God” in the anthropological Nietzschean sense. However, this description of everyone becoming a god unto themselves is proper Luciferianism. The consequence of a majority of Westerners walking around with clinical attachment disorders is that there’s a huge market for “defooing” because they have introjected their parents’ failures and internalized the belief that love means sacrificing what you love to appearances. Molyneux, for example, stumbled across the correct answer for dealing with narcissists, to cut all ties, and overgeneralized this to all blood relations who frustrate individualistic actualization (i.e. worship of the false self constructed to protect oneself from these very family members) in the smallest degree.
But if all children born to single mothers have attachment disorders, and a vast majority of children will soon be born out of wedlock, then human attachment with anyone at all becomes impossible unless it humans are instrumentalized as “networking”. (Vaknin points out that technology enables this otherwise economically impossible near future for Western countries.) This is Zodiacism, where every narcissist becomes a star unto himself and eschews meaningful human contact for fear of all the other stars sacrificing him to their own false selves, as they were all trained to do from childhood.
A society like this is what trains people in the belief that love means deconstructing what’s nearest and dearest to your heart. I remember when I first saw this bit of standup maybe ten years ago, I was shocked to see a man glorying in the destruction of one of his childhood idols:
This is how SJWs become monsters, always seeking to become close to the things they love and then compulsively destroying them in an endless cycle of playing out their childhood trauma. Molyneux has a high IQ and good genetics, but it has not prevented him from becoming a monster like Vaknin. How many lives has he destroyed with his great talents? If we were writing public policy, all such internet personalities would have to be put down for public safety. But if every modern person is a narcissist, then we’re talking about Georgia Guidestones-tier depopulation. Or as Bice puts it, another win for the Treestump Question.
I don’t have an answer because the vicious spiral of societal entropy is deterministic, except to remind you that only God can save humans from ourselves or each other. There is no earthly salvation–the Greek tragedy writers understood this. Christianity takes a strong influence from that Stoic tradition, except that we believe the longer story is a divine comedy.
