All We Need Is Love?

And, from Art and the Greater Good, by Emily Vey Duke:
And as ludicrous as it may seem, we can advocate for narcissism as a viable road to empathy (and the reduction of suffering) in art. Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay's videos, for instance, are perhaps the most explicitly narcissistic works I have ever seen, and yet those tapes open hearts. The element that joins narcissism and empathy is love, and love is good, always, everywhere.
