Think of any dictator that springs to mind and you will have the personification of this type of individual (Saddam Hussain seems to fit well and comes to mind easily).The character of Tony Soprano from HBO's television series, "The Sopranos" is also a good example of this type.Why (adult) people who are being abused choose to stay in abusive relationships is another. Their early history consisted of receiving abuse themselves and/or seeing others abused (one parent abusing the other or their sibling, etc.).Neither of these questions have easy answers and even the strongest attempt to educate yourself as to why people might make these seemingly irrational choices will not lead to complete understanding. The first question, "Why do people abuse other people? As a consequence, abuse is the normal condition of life for these people.They may have an antisocial (sociopathic, psychopathic) or narcissistic personality disorder, and they may have anger or impulse control issues and substance abuse issues on top of that!
They have also expanded their range to include riffs on longplays of full-length video games ("Wrongpurae") and Flash submissions to Newgrounds ("Retsufrash"), focusing on the game itself rather than the person playing it (most of the time, anyway); and newer series like "Crappy Pasta", which was later renamed "Slowbeef's House of Horror", in which slowbeef does dramatic readings of terrible video game-related creepypastas, "Kickstarter Nonstarter" and "Indie No Go", where they riff on ridiculous Kickstarter and Indie Go Go projects, respectively.Abuse situations must be lived in and experienced before their internal logic makes any sense. Such people internalized a particular relationship dynamic, namely the complementary roles of "abuser" and "victim".They are familiar with and fully understand the terror of being the helpless victim from their own childhood experience.What makes Tony's character so interesting to watch is that he is aware of his tendency towards narcissistic sociopathy and struggles against it at times with varying rates of success.Not everything over there is fully functional yet, and the internal links still point to this blog, and will for the indefinite future.
