Famous Psychiatrist: Liberals are Clinically Insane

Restating the obvious, for many of us, but this article is well worth reading.

“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.”

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.

“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.”

BAM! as Emeril would say.

“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.”

Ouch! That ought to leave a mark.


Libtards also like to display their psychopathy for all to see. I especially like the, Read My Lips, No New Texan’s” sticker. He/she/it may hope to never see this in the rearview.

    Awesome! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Who did that, anyway?

    “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.”

    That’s very literally true. I’ve heard those exact “feelings” (feelings, oh oh oh feelings…) expressed by individuals arguing in favor of the all inclusive nanny state.

    And there are more than a few politicians eager to oblige and encourage the co-dependency (in the name of their own power).

    I may have to re-think my opinion of psychiatry after this one (hope I’m not stepping on any toes there).

    I don’t believe classical liberals are crazy. But lefty moonbats definitely are, and unfortunately they are very vocal and uninhibited. I blame their Dr. Spock upbringing.

  4. Angus Dei Says:

    Tanstaafl: Welcome, and step on all the toes you want to! That’s what we do here. I once called child psychologists, “cordwood to stoke the fires of hell” so we probably pretty much agree anyway.

    Rebecca: Good thing: Classical liberals call themselves libertarians these days, which is what I am. Though, I’ll admit to being, um, less than perfectly balanced. LOL!

    I wouldn’t generalise against psychiatrists – a good one’s worth his/her weight in gold. Like any specialist, one can be bad through poor training or poor motivation, but psychiatrists – and their first cousins, psychologists – can also be bad above and beyond this, by enthusiastically embracing shonky theory and applying it indiscriminately in their practice. Now a surgeon might do something equivalent, but that doesn’t happen so often and any poor result is quickly seen, the new technique or whatever it is soon abandoned. Not so with mental health.

    I get wary of practitioners advertising some ‘special interest’ field. I’m not talking about surgeons here, or even physicians who become cardiologists or neurologists etc. I’m thinking of “Menopause Clinics”, “Men’s Health Clinics” (which is basically a clinic for erectile dysfunction). With those, the diagnosis is always whatever condition they can treat with their pet medication. For example, a 45 year old woman with mild-moderate symptoms of depression and anxiety goes to a menopause clinic because they’ve heard it can sometimes be the hormones playing up. She has no symptoms you’d expect with menopause (hot flushes occur, to some degree, in over 90%) and has normal hormone blood tests (which can be normal during early menopause but is still non-supportive of a diagnosis of menopause, wouldn’t you say?). You would think the doctor – in most cases a female GP whose realised there’s easy money in this – would advise this lady that menopause is a very unlikely cause of her symptoms and that she should perhaps discuss it further with her usual GP. But no. It’s hormone replacement therapy every single time. And not just normal HRT, but their favourite combo, the ‘troche’: oestrogen, natural progesterone (has to be natural, even though it’s never been shown to do anything when administered in that form) and testosterone. No doubt about it, some women do feel a bit better with testosterone, especially if libido’s been a problem. God knows what long-term risks there are for them, because that hasn’t been studied.

    For men, the better clinics prescribe common remedies like viagra. The dodgy ones sell other stuff, usually quite effective but much higher in side-effects and much more expensive.

    Never accept any medication from someone selling it to you directly. These ‘doctors’ profit from what they sell you and that’s why they sell it to you.

    Getting back on topic, psychiatrists or psychologists with a ‘special interest’ in one field of mental health have a tendency to diagnose their favourite condition all the time. One last example, don’t send your kid to an “Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder Clinic” if you suspect some behavioural problem. That’s the diagnosis you’ll get, every time.

    I can’t turn down a challenge.

  7. SandiM Says:

    Brilliant, Ash!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Ash Says:

    Thanks Sandi, Angus.

    Say, Angus, did you enjoy that drive down Highway 93? LOL.

  9. saltydog Says:

    Dminor, I agree with you, especially that a good psychiatrist is worth his weight in gold. And they are just as rare as gold and just as hard to find. If you find one who doesn’t deny man’s rational faculty, write down his name just in case.

    The triple-cocktail is not a bad thing. I had cancer at the age of 25 and I had to look high and low for someone who would treat me with more than Premarin, which is like taking tic-tac, with about the same results. I have a problem with today’s across-the-board, cookbook medicine, which ignores differences among patients, in both cause and remedy.

    As for the good doctor’s book and evaluation: I believe I mentioned Missy Fonda’s “grossly stunted maturity” the other day. That can be easily expanded to so many boomers. I’m sure that Rebecca, for instance, who I believe is around my age, would agree with me that the lack of maturity in important areas of life is wide-spread among our contemporaries. I would say, however, that the extent of one’s belief in “political activism” usually governs this fact, hence one finds squeaky noises of those like the sagging pink boobs of San Francisco and elsewhere.

    Salty…so good to see you, you red haired green eyed devil you.

    The one comment of yours to one who use to post at Blairs, (may have been at Jules place, started with a 9 his nic did) that I will never forget.

    with my red hair and greens eyes, I would have made you weep

  11. bingbing Says:

    Brilliant. But we already knew that, didn’t we?

  12. saltydog Says:

    Ah shucks, Cid. You’re making me blush. I can’t believe you’ve remembered a throwaway line like that — not that it isn’t true, of course. ;~)

  13. Ash Says:

    #13 Salty, the Cid can make a lady blush from 10,000 miles.

  14. Angus Dei Says:

    Where is 93, Ash? The mountains in the background look almost exactly like the stuff we have around here in far west Texas.

  15. Ash Says:

    It’s on a Google search for “highway” Angus. As for which particular area of the US, I have no idea. But I chose it because I suspected it looked like what you have there in Texas.

  16. Tim M. Says:

    First, I am a conservative, not a republican, and I think that republicans are warmongers, but the truth is that most liberals are mentally ill. Who but a psychotic would want to equalize a hardworking helpful person who loves his community with a violent drug user or child molesting piece of crap? Well only liberals. In fact to them the drug user who lives a selfish life, many times leaving destruction in their path, is morally superior becuase he is not a capitalist, inhibited by social mores or constrained to the shackles of outdated beliefs, like respect or accountability.

    It seems to me that the main reason most liberals are liberals (and minorites and union workers are not liberal mind you, they are merely democrats because it benefits them) is because either they are a rebellious deviant, or their upbringing was very easy and they think that everyone has had an easy time of it, and they think everyone has it just as good. They can’t see that many of us have to work to provide things we like such as food, shelter, gasoline, clothing and electricity.

    In the liberal mind these are unlimited resources (well, until they start talking about the environment) that everyone should have access to. I say no, let them starve & roll into the gutter if they won’t do enough to help themselves. I am all for giving a person a chance, I will even hand them a broom to sweep or a lawnmower to cut lawns, but liberals equate sob stories and laziness to people who work for a living. The liberal mindset thinks that people who work like working, and would rather do that than just fish all day, and drink beer, to them it has nothing to do with responsibilities, bills and kids. Believe me, if I didn’t have to worry about anything, that is exactly what I would do.

    On the other side of the coin I am against any immigration of foreigners for the purpose of undercutting the salary of the natives. We must reciprocate for people who are actively contributing to the community, and not pay them so little that they are forced to take on two jobs. Unrestrained capitalism is just as much as a problem as communism is, and when you can abuse the society as a whole so that you can make a bigger profit that is wrong.

    This is from my own experience, and liberals want me to say what the f*ck? Many of them are as selfish as all get out but want you to foot the social welfare bill they create. This all comes from a childhood of feeling they are better than anyone else, and wanting to appear morally superior. They want to piggy back on your forced contribution to their social causes and then show how good they are and how evil you are even if all you do is object to this extortion.

    Liberals are like spoiled shallow children who love being seen as a good person, actually being good doesn’t play into it. Look at Bono, he wants middle class Americas to give their wealth to the basket case of Africa (made that way by Africans, no one else), but he still has more than $1000 in the bank. Let him give up all his money and then maybe I will be impressed and give some too.

    To this end I am against habitat for humanity because it is biased and unfair. If you are going to give away free houses, I should be able to have one, as I don’t care to keep paying a house payment. I mean why not, we are all equal are we not?

  17. Mary B Says:

    Tim – AMEN! I couldn’t have said it better myself, but I thought it exactly the same. Thank you.

  18. Mad Bluebird Says:

    Notice how that car covered with all those dumb liberal bumper stickers looks forgein made and the expense of american workers being laid off

  19. thomas mc Says:

    Actually, a much more prominent psychiatrist called Conservatives insane, years ago. Wrote a much better paper qualifying his statements, too.

  20. Maxianne Says:

    LOL I love how you people have to post this drivel on a wordpress blog.

    Notice it’s not in the news, or excuse me the real news.

    In the meantime, Conservative politicians who are elected by YOU folks demonstrate not only blatant ignorance, bigotry, stupidity, and criminality. And not just once but repeatedly and with every thing they do.

    I guess you can bullshit yourselves much longer than you could ever bullshit the rest of us.

Well, SAY something...
