Yes, I know Charlie Sheen is world class, whoring, drug using jackass. His recent interviews pretty much nailed that proposition to the wall. Having said this, one theme he kept returning to was how he was different from other regular people who could not keep pace with either his expanded consciousness, or his (claimed) ability to function at work while indulging his gargantuan appetite for drugs and partying.
His argument was (I believe) distilled down into the following propositions.
I refuse to believe or entertain the argument that I am not exceptional. I live an exceptional life that pleases me, which involves using large quantities of drugs. I am regarded as as exceptional talent who performs competently and professionally as actor while working. I am rewarded for that talent by being paid an exceptional sum. In being able to do all these things compared to lesser men I am a rock star from Mars.
Hubris to be sure, but is he actually wrong? If he is empirically paid and treated (more or less) like a rock star from Mars he is on some level an exceptional human being. If he has now internalized that notion after years of being regarded and rewarded as a superstar is he wrong to say ordinary people cannot judge him for the style in which he chooses to live his life?
