One thought on “Fury

  1. WiserNow says:

    Two interesting articles I have read recently discuss group psychology and collective narcissism. The two articles are unrelated and do not really discuss the same concepts and yet I think there is correlation between the two.

    The articles are as follows:

    1. ‘Historical plagues led to revolutions – could coronavirus do the same?’
    by Laura Spinney (a British-born writer and science journalist based in Paris).
    dated 18 July 2022
    appearing in ‘New Scientist’ magazine, a weekly publication about science and technology based in London, UK.

    The article discusses historical cultural revolutions sparked by socially infectious epidemic diseases. Historians and social scientists have found that communicable diseases have prompted a recurring phenomena when it comes to authoritarian forms of religious belief and governmental leadership.

    Those studying these historical findings believe that “whatever is driving the authoritarian turn is profoundly social – to do with how we perceive others. Although the research predates covid-19, people’s behaviour during the current pandemic has reinforced these findings.”
    Control and exclusion of ‘others’ due to the anxiety that ‘others’ pose a threat to health seems to be a factor.

    This suggests a worrying historical precedent. For example, one statistic shows that ‘among German cities, the higher the death rate during the 1918 flu pandemic, the greater the share of the city’s votes for the Nazi party in the early 1930s.’

    As one historian says in the article, “There is a real fear of chaos in [epidemic] settings, so it’s this desire for tightness that I think predicts support for strict gods and governments … and wherever people seek control, it seems to involve reinforcing group boundaries and a greater preference for one’s in-group.”

    As one historian says in the article, “The spread of germs is the price we pay for the spread of ideas.” Also: “Germs and ideas both travel through human social networks…these networks have evolved to strike a balance between the advantages and disadvantages of being exposed to other people – principally, learning from them versus catching dangerous germs or ideas.”

    (Note: the article is available online, however it is behind a paywall.)

    2. ‘Collective narcissism and its social consequences: The bad and the ugly.’
    by Agnieska Golec de Zavala and Dorottya Lantos (both academics in the fields of psychology and social sciences).
    published in the journal ‘Current directions in psychological science’ 2020 Vol 29(3).

    This article discusses collective narcissism and its negative predictors and consequences. It contrasts collective narcissism – a belief that one’s own group (or in-group) is exceptional but not sufficiently recognised by others – with private collective self-esteem (or in-group satisfaction, a belief that the in-group is of high value).

    The article describes collective narcissism as ‘in-group love’ that is strongly associated with ‘out-group hate’. It says that collective narcissism predicts discrimination and hostility towards others just because they belong to a different group. The outcomes of collective narcissism include prejudice toward minorities, sexism, retaliatory aggression, nationalism, and support for terrorist extremism, among others.

    The article also describes collective self-esteem, which is positive social identity and pride in one’s own group without narcissistic hostility towards others in different groups.

    The authors say there is a positive overlap between positive collective self-esteem (i.e. non-narcissistic collective self-esteem) and collective narcissism. Social participation in positively valued in-groups increases and stabilises self-esteem. Thus, collective self-esteem is indirectly linked to the psychological benefits of positive social identity, i.e. feeling socially connected, positive and happy.

    These two articles look at collective beliefs, albeit in different ways. I think it’s interesting to consider the information in each article both separately as well as in unison. If we know that certain factors reinforce social cohesion and positive social identity, we can use that information to guard against the social consequences of collective narcissism.

    In addition, if we know that recurring patterns are likely to play out following an event such as an infectious disease or epidemic in our own current era, we can use this knowledge to moderate and alter the predictions that are informed by historical narratives.
