I am not sure they have quite taken over the world but there are many who seek power and control that's for sure.
This has been the position for hundreds of years. The church controlled society and the state to the detriment of many. All for their own personal feed and greed with no conscience -- at the expense of the quality of life and sometimes life and mental health of the ordinary person.

Narcissists feed on power and control so bringing down your mood provides this fuel for them. They also have chronic low self esteem so if they keep you down then they feel less threatened.

One of their main objectives is to destabilise you. This way they get to keep control, instil fear and get a feed. They can achieve this in many ways.

You ask is it worth investigating if your mother is a narcissist. It has been my experience in my client work that yes it is worth it for you and you only.

Your mum needs to do her own work. Unfortunately if she is a narcissist she is unlikely to engage in therapy and if she does it might be with the intention of disrupting the process. So keep her work separate from yours.

Why not do both if you feel that they are not dangerous enough to target you before and after you have left.

But be careful if you feel they have malignant tendencies. I have a client who was in a high profile public job. A gentle personality, she was sadly bullied out of this job she loved very much whilst other high profile people stood by listening to the bullying in their ear pieces day after day.
