The members of the sociopathic or narcissistic family protect each other’s lies because, according to their skewed and distorted values and beliefs, that’s what they are there for. Although this twisted logic may be present throughout the entire family, it will most likely only be to the extent of a full-scale personality disorder in just a few of those related members, although others can display similar characteristics.
Paternity fraud intentionally being covered up long-term by such a family is the perfect example of narcissistic/sociopathic abuse. Everyone who condoned the act have all victimized the innocent supposed father, who has inevitably and ultimately been conspired against.
“What they don’t know won’t hurt them”
“You will believe my lies because they are the truth… they are my truth”
“I never said or did that, you’re making it up”
“Treat ’em mean, keep ’em keen”
“You’re paranoid it’s all in your head”
