I think the biological imperative might be viewed as such in a certain light ['I want MY genes to stick around' - it's probably the closest we get to any kind of immortality], but I doubt that the actions of individuals are narcissistic in nature.

You can couch it as such, but I think it's a stretch to categorize it as narcissistic as opposed to very sacrificing.

Cloning yourself is narcissistic.

Maybe in some cases, but overall I wouldn't say it's narcissistic

More altruistic, really.You give up your freedom to be a handservant to your little ones.

Interesting. I think it depends if you are already narcissistic, to a certain degree. The way Lucy put it actually makes a very good argument.

I think the IDEA of having children is usually isn't brought into the equation, it just happens. Your all thinking waaaay too far into procreation in this society of 12 year old mothers..
