The Liberal Mind

The Liberal Mind
The Psychological Causes of Political Madness

By Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D.

For more than 40 years, Rossiter has diagnosed and treated over 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases, both state and federal, as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist retained by numerous public offices, courts and private attorneys. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

Rossiter explains with great clarity why the kind of liberalism being displayed by Barack Obama can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Rossiter. “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”
“A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which overregulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”

Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

* creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
* satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
* augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
* rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

    Excellent hypothesis: wonder how many psychiatrists’ couch potatoes are liberals vs. conservatives or libertarians? Think of all the psychosis inherent in this subset of the population? It fits so perfectly.

    You know those stats are out there, somewhere-

    It seems only charitable to pity ExPatriot. He and his looney Libs have
    Psychological problems. They deserve our sympathy. They’ve probably
    been dumbed down since birth. They can’t control their ranting and whining
    It’s inherent.

    Psychological problems???? Please explain to me why is that neo-cons continously accuse, whine, rant, rave and take guns and kill people for their beliefs?? Gee it sure sounds like y’all got the psycho problems. Definitely not the peace loving, deep thinking progressives.
    Hold your pity for your own kind they are the people that need it. This blog and other looney blogs like it have done nothing but promote hatred, racism, threats, whining and hypocrisy since our Genius President got elected last year. So please tell me who need psychiatric help???

    I think if you check any stats, anywhere, worldwide you’ll find that it is the lefties (aka socialists and commies) ranting and whining and shooting. Locally, Think Code Pink, ACORN, SEIU and all the other anarchist and radical organizations; think of the freaks and misfits that turn out for the G-20 summit: it ain’t mighty-righty!

    Blue states are full of budgetbusting sickos; red states are not. Liberal nations, like France and GB have more social problems than conservative or libertarian nations like Ireland or the US.

    The list goes on….

    ….but, don’t let the facts that we can all see with our own eyes get in the way of your own baseless rant and whine-
