Top Psychiatrist Concludes Liberals Are Mentally Disturbed

By Pamela Jean     Feb 17, 2008 in Politics
Dr. Lyle Rossiter, in his new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." states that liberals are strikingly irrational in their beliefs and emotions, intent on undermining important principals our freedom was founded upon.
For more than 35 years Dr. Rossiter has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.
In his new book "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." he exposes that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.
"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."
Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization as well as satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation, augmenting primitive feelings of envy, rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, instead 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."
Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy."
"Modern liberalism's irrationality can only be understood as the product of psychopathology. So extravagant are the patterns of thinking, emoting, behaving and relating that characterize the liberal mind that its relentless protests and demands become understandable only as disorders of the psyche." "The Liberal Mind" reveals the madness of the modern liberal for what it is: a massive transference neurosis acted out in the world's political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty.
Hey, if the shoe fits.
