Narcissism has been an ancient human behavioural expression resulting from power and a sense of entitlement.

One scapegoat emerges who is constantly abused mentally, emotionally, verbally resulting in physical abuse in the long run. Anybody can become a victim of such relationships making women and children more prone to abuse.
