TOP PSYCHIATRIST CONCLUDES LIBERALS CLINICALLY NUTS EMINENT PSYCHIATRIST MAKES CASE IDEOLOGY IS MENTAL DISORDER
This headline appeared in the World Net Daily on February 15th, 2008, that is, sixteen years ago! The years that followed have only gone to prove just how to correct Dr. Lyle Rossitor was in his conclusions. Sadly, no one at the time realized how much his “diagnosis” was going to matter to ordinary Americans and other good people around the world as liberals did their best to validate the good Doctor’s conclusions. Below is Rossitor’s article. It should be reprinted and widely distributed while there is still time, or, more to the point if there is still time:
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.” [end of article]
Of course, the problem today is, how do we wrest control of our society and the world from the hands of those who brook no differences of opinion or contrary beliefs and especially when, for generations, they have been able to fill the ranks of the powerful with their own kind. Sadly, as time swiftly runs out for normal, ordinary people in this world, we have yet to find an answer to that question. Indeed, the inmates are running the asylum and the criminals the prisons.
