One of the problems with people who work for sociopaths who suffer from extreme narcissism is that they are fearful of telling their boss the truth if they feel that the truth is bound to upset him and cause him to go into a rage. So everybody tends to tip toe around him and allow him to remain in the dark while things fall apart. And thus while things fall apart, the boss remains oblivious and his people continue to assure him things are just fine and dandy. And all the smoke and noise? Eh, it ain’t real. You’re doing great boss! (Meanwhile, the country falls apart. But the important thing is… don’t upset the boss.)
Doing great, boss!
