The Psychopathology
of the Liberal Mind

American Thinker, by Damon Isherwood

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/2/2012 11:49:38 AM

The ever-increasing culture of entitlement was correctly identified by Mitt Romney as a leading factor in the Democrats´ victory. However, running in parallel is another culture on the rise -- one far less well-identified, which bodes ominously not only for the GOP´s future prospects, but, more importantly, for the democratic process itself.(snip)Pseudo-idealism is a term coined by the Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith to describe apparently charitable behavior that on scrutiny is revealed as selfish, because the giver is engaging in it only so that he or she can feel good about him- or herself.

How do we cure this? One aid would be to limit the milk from the teat and make it more expensive to the average liberal. End the Payroll Tax holiday, all the Bush rates, Obama´s tax credits that are paid to the poor, and the remnants of Stimulus. Yeah, small businesses and the rich will pay 42 billion more in 2013 (they won´t actually because they´ll earn less), but the Not-Rich will pony up an additional 385 billion. That´s 427 billion in 2013 that Obama needs to match with reduced spending. Obama is already screaming about Sequester which is only 10s of billions a year. It won´t balance the budget but its a lot closer.

My take on liberals is that they don´t think things through, they don´t have a lot of common sense, they don´t have a healthy honest skeptism, they don´t study history, and they are a bit immature. They tend to wallow in, and love to talk to each other about, their problems, instead of solving them. Overriding all this is a contempt for happy successful people.

Several years ago I attended a drivers-ed course for us senior citizens. To break the ice before beginning the course, the instructor asked each pupil to write on a piece of paper what he/she was most proud of, which he then read to the whole class. Quite a few wrote "My volunteer work."

Nobody should confuse balancing a budget - (BB)- with reducing the deficit. They are two different animals. A BB only means we spend for a year exactly what we take in. If DC produced a BB for 2013 we would still have 16+ trillion in debt. Reducing govn spending, entitlement reform and open ended capitalism are the solutions to fixing our financial problems.

Good article. It does not, however, specify the sine qua non of such psychopathology, namely a society that is safe, orderly, comfortable and secure. Never in the history of the world have so many had it so good, so safe, and so easy as Americans have it today. This tends to blur the boundaries between fantasy and reality. What exists seems to exist naturally and necessarily, as if it made and maintained itself. Children born into such comfortable circumstances take them all for granted and are incensed when they do not get their way about everything. Every frustration of the will is experienced as unjust and unnatural.

There is also a small subset of Leftist radicals who have what might be termed a gnostic hatred of reality, reality here being defined as anything other than themselves, hence obstructve to their will. They literally hate everything and everyone that actually exists and lust to replace them by the contents of their infantile fantasies. This extreme pathology also requires a safe, easy, comfortable, secure existence with its corresponding relief from the stresses and demands of coping with reality raw, i.e. without the almost magical transformations and augmentations of advanced civilization. Liberalism would not last long -say a week or two- if the national power grid went down or some other catastrophe occurred that presented reality in an undeniable and demanding form requiring attention and action. It is no accident that the worst Leftist nonsense emanates from the brains of underemployed scholars, tenured and otherwise, and other people who do not have to work seriously for a living or confront the direct demands of reality.

This is just another way of saying what we´ve all known to be true for some time. Michael Savage was the first one to identify and name this pathology many years ago now, "Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder".

Liberalism is emotionalism taken to an extreme, and the false belief that man is inherently "good," but ´environment´ makes him go bad. These are all lies of the Devil himself, and that´s why today´s liberal is at a complete polar opposite of the Divine viewpoint in all respects.

Heartily agree with #5 except on one point: The subset is actually fairly large and getting larger. Meanwhile, I think the chances of the kind of a "correcting catastrophe" described in that post are very good, given the inevitable dysfunction of a society that has chosen to rely on Leftist dunderheads to run everything. In fact, the mentality described by this article must ultimately lead to complete destruction. It is wholly unsustainable.

All great posts, especially 7 and 8. I can´t add a thing except to note that liberals approach everything with emotion, and conservatives use logic. Which explains, now that I think of that, why it´s impossible to have a meaningful conversation between a conservative and a lib.

A problem that has been well-documented for millenia.

Matthew 6:1-4. Verse 2... "So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others."

I remember the Rush Limbaugh episode in the 1990´s when he bedecked himself with every ribbon that he could find just to show how much he cared.

".... providence for their extreme ill has its extreme remedy at hand. For such peoples, like so many beasts, have fallen into the custom of each man thinking only of his own private interests and have reached the extreme of delicacy, or better of pride, in which like wild animals they bristle and lash out at the slightest displeasure. Thus no matter how great the throng and press of their bodies, they live like wild beasts in a deep solitude of spirit and will, scarcely any two being able to agree since each follows his own pleasure or caprice. By reason of all this, providence decrees that, through obstinate factions and desperate civil wars, they shall turn their cities into forests and the forests into dens and lairs of men. In this way, through long centuries of barbarism, rust will consume the misbegotten subtleties of malicious wits that have turned them into beasts made more inhuman by the barbarism of reflection than the first men had been made by the barbarism of sense. . . . Hence peoples who have reached this point of premeditated malice, when they receive this last remedy of providence and are thereby stunned and brutalized, are sensible no longer of comforts, delicacies, pleasures, and pomp, but only of the sheer necessities of life. And the few survivors in the midst of an abundance of the things necessary for life naturally become sociable and, returning to the primitive simplicity of the first world of peoples, are again religious, truthful, and faithful. Thus providence brings back among them the piety, faith, and truth which are the natural foundations of justice as well as the graces and beauties of the eternal order of God. . . ." http://www.historyguide.org/intellect/new_science.html

I´ve believed for a number of years that arrogant self-righteousness is a drug to liberals. Apply that to "situational ethics" and one-issue obsessions, and you´ve got a lot of loony addicts running loose looking for a fix.

I can´t stand to be around a liberal any more. They used to be annoying; now, they´re horrifying.

Liberalism is the desire to live in a fantasy land and refusing to accept the responsibilities that go with adulthood. This pseudo idealism discussed in the article is a corruption of the concept of charity. Charity involves taking money or something you could have used for your own needs and using it to help another who is in need. The counterfeit charity of liberals consists in taking the resources needed from someone else to help the needy. It is not charity to promote a collectivist government program to help the needy yet those who do this imagine themselves as more charitable than anyone. These are the people who disparage Mother Theresa as only putting on a bandage while admiring themselves as having a plan to eliminate all poverty. Mother Theresa never claimed to eliminate poverty but she, and the sister who joined her, helped many thousands of people one at a time.

I have a couple of lib friends and enjoy pulling their chain. For example, one says she has no problem with socialism (which in her mind, it helps social causes). So I asked her how much she makes and started deducting taxes to pay for her lazy neighbor and everybody else who does not earn their way.

Then I went into healthcare all paid by the government. I told her we needed to help fat Joe´s health expenses and the octogenarian who needs a kidney. She refused to acknowledged how her income was drastically reduced due to taxation and confiscation of her miniscule wealth.

She was more interested in arguing about women´s rights and abortion and was OK with rationing health care to ´lost´ cases. I couldn´t make a dent in the argument even after I told she and other libs need to abort their fetuses more.

Great article and some really good posts. The dumbest lib I know is my SIL & she is always proclaiming her good deeds - since I´ve seen her selfishness & dishonesty up close, I know it is not because she CAAARES so much - she just wants to brag on herself & pat herself on the back. She once insisted on my watching a really depressing movie about awful, drug-addicted teens with her. Since it ended in tragedy, I asked her what was the appeal of the movie? She floored me when she said that she liked to see other people whose lives were much worse than hers - that is when I knew that liberalism is just a mask for their sadism.

I don´t agree that hard times turn people into Liberals. I think the availability of corruption does. When people see others manipulating the system to get more "stuff", they think they should do so as well.

The ´50´s were, as we look back on it, tougher times than we have now...but very conservative, big on family values, and a recovery from the Great Depression. We now see that time as socially restricting (giving birth to illegitimate babies was frowned upon, for example)...but now maybe some will see tougher social standards as a good thing.

Though the Obama presidency has years to go, he has already initiated his legacy project. It’s called My Brother’s Keeper and attempts to help “at risk” young men of color – those prone to crime, mayhem, drug addiction, and fathering illegitimate children. Clearly a worthy cause, and it has already attracted $150 million in private support. The goal also seems reasonable, since unruly young men (regardless of color) have long troubled society and cures abound thanks to eons of experience. That’s the good news. The bad news is that Obama’s putative cure is a modern-day Progressive nightmare. It will fail while

We have been so absorbed by the cavalcade of government incompetence and individual hurt produced by the rollout of ObamaCare that it is easy to forget the tragedy-in-waiting should this federal healthcare takeover stay in place: the death panel, also known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). This is the group of political appointees designed to allow the federal government to use a combination of medical and social criteria to determine the healthcare an individual receives. Or, to put it as bluntly as Sarah Palin did, to determine who lives and who dies. Why am I thinking about that now?

Ezekiel Emanuel – brother of Rahm, with whom he shares a charm deficiency – shared his behind-the-scenes stories in the recent Wall Street Journal essay “Inside the Making of Obamacare.” To my ear, Emanuel’s abrasiveness and arrogance in his radio and television appearances undermine his defense of ObamaCare, and this piece of writing likewise does little to improve my opinion of President Obama or his signature law. Emanuel is often called the “the architect of ObamaCare.” Although no one person put together the Rube Goldberg contraption of a law, Emanuel was certainly a key player. He describes his role in the

Recently I watched the documentary Breeders, which I recommend to everyone – gay and straight, liberal and conservative. The documentary, produced by Jennifer Lahl at the Center for Bioethics and Culture, exposes the ethical dangers posed by the practice known as “surrogacy.” Surrogacy is the use of a contract, by which a woman agrees to carry a gestating child in her womb for another party (usually an infertile heterosexual couple or a gay male couple), and also agrees to abandon the child to the couple who has engaged her services. Compensated surrogacy means that the carrier is paid to rent out her
