The Liberal Mind by Dr. Lyle Rossiter

Top psychiatrist concludes liberals clinically nuts

Eminent psychiatrist makes case ideology is mental disorder


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."

I saw this on a predominently conservative forum. It probably made me look like Bob Newhart with a dumbfounded, jaw dropped expression. This kind of "authority" makes me soooooo happy to have learned outside of those doctoral "initiators." Wow...


I think this "Dr. Lyle" is the one who's nuts.

Dr. C.
     How does one know if one is a liberal?  Or a conservative?  Are there other choices or is this like I'm celebrating that I get to vote for Mitt or Barry?  Then after the illusion of a popular vote count, the electorial college
gives Bush the presidency twice.  But to make it fair they allowed Florida to be the decider.  Coincidence that Jeb, his brother, was Governor. 
       How come nobody ever asks me whether we should or shouldn't go to war against any of our imagined enemies?  Oh, thats right!  The same reason they didn' task you!  They sure like putting our children in harms way, though, don't they? 
      If I had to place myself in a category to be able to vote for the lessor of two evils, I'd check the box that said,"liberal Anarchist. "My signiture would be Benjiman Franklin.

I'm not certain, but it seems "Dr. Lyle" seems a lot like Dr. Phil. I envision a guy with a mostl bald pate cleaning a 357 long barrel semi-auto with a laser scope, telling us we are crazy if we say he has too many firearms on his wall... next to an eight foot wide gun rack, while his 12 year old kid walks in wearing camouflage denims with a Daisy or Crossman pellet gun and a string of squirrels...
