Noted Psychiatrist Says Liberalism a Mental Illness

I’ve been baffled for much of my adult life why anyone would espouse the philosophy of modern liberalism whose tenets have failed wherever they have been tried. For example, anyone could see that when forced busing of schoolchildren was introduced to Boston, the result would be the flight of whites to the suburbs. On energy, liberal disdain for domestic drilling and nuclear energy increases our dependence on foreign sources and directly involves our military to protect our access. Before I note the article equating liberalism and mental illness, first read an excerpt from another article that best describes the failings of modern liberalism:

Christopher Adamo RenewAmerica 11/1/07 (Excerpt)

“As long as liberal programs can be separated from their consistently disastrous consequences by a sufficient period of time, the perpetrators stand a chance of pointing fingers of accusation at one straw dog or another, thereby escaping culpability for the disasters they helped create.

Thus the abject failures of America's "education" system are blamed not on the "politically correct" agenda of the ultra-liberal National Education Association, but on "insufficient funding." In New Orleans, all of the misery and needless suffering experienced by the people, now bundled in discussion under the heading of "Katrina," resulted not from the corrupt Democrat political machine that misused funds, ignoring the danger and failing to prepare for it, but from the incompetence of President Bush and FEMA.

Of course the most stunning example in recent memory, September 11, is similarly explained away in any manner possible, other than that Bill Clinton and the "girls" (Hillary, Madeleine Albright, Janet Reno, and Jamie Gorelick) chose to play "politically correct" games with national security, thus leaving the nation vulnerable.

Likewise, on the day that Kansas begins experiencing "brownouts," power outages, and the exorbitant costs of shoring up its energy needs by purchasing emergency supplies of electricity from other utilities, those most responsible for the crisis will be the noisiest complainants, ascribing guilt to every corporate interest and individual they can target, but never acknowledging their own complicity.

Nevertheless, until that day arrives, Secretary Bremby and Governor Kathleen Sebelius (a Democrat, of course...) can be expected to loudly extol the virtues of their sensitivity and concern for mother earth.

Not every wrongheaded decision will immediately result in an obvious "day of reckoning" with such horrific, recognizable consequences awakening America with the mesmerizing impact of skyscrapers imploding on thousands of terrified people, or the nightmarish scene of hillsides and entire neighborhoods ablaze. But just as surely, in every situation where liberal ideologues are allowed to set the stage with total disregard for reality, sooner or later that day will come.” Adamo

AND NOW THE ARTICLE IN QUESTION:
Top psychiatrist concludes liberals are clinically nuts!
Makes case ideology is mental disorder


February 15, 2008 WorldNetDaily

WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "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."

While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy."

For more than 35 years he 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.

Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by the two major candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

"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 over-regulates and over-taxes 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."

DR. LYLE ROSSITER:
Board-certified in general and forensic psychiatry
Over 35 years of experience
Consultation, evaluation, reports, and testimony
Civil and criminal matters
Expert/consultant for plaintiffs, defendants, and prosecution

And I always thought that Michael Savitch came up with the title of his book, "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder" based on his own opinion. If you stop and think of it though; Liberals do some mighty stupid things which are a kin to a fool playing with a loaded gun and shooting himself in the foot. Although I have some friends who are Liberals, I find it hard to dislike them because of their ideology, it just baffles me that they think the way they do. Our country was founded on a set of rules that were brought forth by our forefathers, and these rules have worked for us down through the years. So my question is; why would anyone in his or her right mind want to change them? The key words here are, "right mind". So yes, I'd have to agree with the doctor. Most Liberals are insane! I can just imagine what will happen if Hillary or Obama wins the presidency and pulls the troops out of Iraq. What these dopes don't realize is; We'll still be fighting the terrorists, but it will be on our own soil!!!
