Pt 42-B:
Megalomania and the
Making of the Mexico-LeBaron Mind

Mexico-LeBarons Grandmother Maud, Floren, Joel, Verlan, and Ervil

A Rugged Constitutionalist:
A Fundamentalist Mormon
with a hard anti-government bent. 

Tell bleeding hearts that the
Southern Poverty Law Center
has listed the fundamentalists as a
White supremacist, homophobic,
antigovernment, totalitarian cult.”

In the previous blog, I discussed my Mexico-LeBaron extended-family’s narcissistic personality disorder; i.e., megalomania—their claim they were the number-one family in the world; even stood as God to the people.

Adding to this personality disorder, they exhibited a superiority-inferiority complex; that is, they harbored hidden feelings that others were better than and better off than they. So projected their faults, persecution, and problems onto others and the devil. On the whole, however, they mostly felt grateful for who and what they were and all they had—all God’s blessings.

In today’s thread, will I list theories as to what caused the Mexico-LeBarons’ megalomania/ narcissism and other mental disorders. High on this list are heritable emotional diseases, living circumstances, immaturity, the human condition, one’s values—or lack thereof; lack of a good education, and lack of community support. [1]

But the Mexico-LeBarons’ being shame-based, social outcasts, and a threat to others was enough trauma, in itself, to affect their mental well-being. [2]

To survive socio-psychological trauma, including abuse and toxic shame, people may escape into a dreamworld, become the opposite of that in themselves they can’t live with; and the opposite of that about themselves they are told is unacceptable.

I believe the above and more happened in the making of the Mexico-LeBaron mind. Grandiosity, fabulating, etc., were self-preservation defense mechanisms that kicked in to help the gorgeous, gifted, emotionally challenged Mexico-LeBarons.

But their biography is even more convoluted. Other situations and circumstances also factored into the making of the Mexico-LeBaron mind—trials, tribulations, and atrocities added to the equation, upping the ante of their emotional distress and survival needs: [3]

E.g., wretched, gut-wrenching values, including the belief they had to be perfect or were nothing, were lost, and were headed for hell. Perfectionism haunted the Mexico-LeBaron mind BIG time.

So did ignorance, arrogance, backwardness, not believing in psychology and modern-day research; isolation from the world, not realizing they had a shadow-self, lack of integrity, pride going before a fall—this and more further played a part in the equation that created the Mexico-LeBaron mind set.

[4]. Megalomania

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search1857 lithograph by Armand Gautier, showing personifications of dementiamegalomaniaacute maniamelancholiaidiocyhallucinationerotomania and paralysis in the gardens of the Hospice de la Salpêtrière.Emperor Caligula (12-41) suffered from megalomania.

Megalomania is a mental illness. People with megalomania have delusional fantasies that they are more relevant(important) or powerful than they truly are. They have inflated self esteem and overestimate their powers and beliefs. 

The word “megalomania” is no longer used in the mental health field, and is not mentioned in either the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) or the International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD). Instead, this condition is now called narcissistic personality disorder. The condition affects both men and women. On sociopathy, etc.
