Are liberals mentally ill, spiritually depraved or just ignorant good-hearted people trying to improve society? Liberalism defined by Merriam-Webster: "a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race". It sounds nice but history has already proven that political liberalism is not beneficial. Unfortunately, many still adhere to its philosophy which has led many psychiatrists to examine this behavior.
One such psychiatrist, Dr. Lyle Rossiter wrote the book:
"The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness."
"Psychopathology of the Liberal Mind: The adult drive toward omnipotent control of others, in any arena whatever, is rooted in fears of separation, abandonment loss or abuse--the residual effects of early attachment gone wrong. The need to dominate others arises from the tyrant's need for absolute assurance that the catastrophic loss of dependency or the pain of abuse so devastating to him in his earliest years will not be repeated."
"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."
Dr. Lyle Rossiter has 37 years experience with more than 1,500 patients as a board certified clinical psychiatrist. He is also a board certified forensic psychiatrist who has examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases. He was educated at the University of Chicago.
No wonder he had a lot of patients! Obama and his crew came from Chicago. Dr. Rossiter was also a psychiatrist in the army for two years. His website for his book is here. His professional website is here.
He also writes, "America's founding fathers intended, as the Preamble tells us, to establish justice, insure peace, provide for the nation's defense, promote its general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty. But the entire twentieth century, and the dawn of the twenty-first, have witnessed modern liberalism's relentless attacks on all of these goals and on all of the principles on which individual liberty and rational social order rest."
Many times on the Michael Savage Show he says, "Liberalism is a mental disorder". He actually wrote a book on it. I always laugh when he says it. Recently I reflected what is the common denominator among the liberals that I have met in my life and came up with a list. Maybe yours is the same or different.
Liberals have all or most of these qualities: -prefer to insult others rather than use logic and reasoning -have an arrogant behavior -use anti-depressants or illegal drugs -favor Marxists, Socialists or Communists -against all or part of the 10 Commandments-favor killing babies (abortion) -dislike Christians-liars -like Lucifer they hate obedience or responsibility
Then I made a list of qualities of people I have met that are conservative. They have most of these characteristics: -try to follow the 10 commandments-have a spiritual life either as a Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Christian, etc. -have a genuine love for their Creator and people around them -selfless
Selfless? It almost sounds like Anakin Skywalker when he was talking to Senator Palpatine about the Jedi's virtues in "Revenge of the Sith". "The Jedi use their power for good. The Jedi are selfless. They only care about others." Senator Palpatine (aka Darth Sidious) was trying to seduce Anakin to the dark side by rationalizing his need of it.
When we rationalize anything seems acceptable. Determining good ethics can be easy just as those who planned the "final solution". That is one extreme. Another is how Obama allows chaos and death on the US / Mexican border in order to promote Soros' agenda of open borders and keep the Hispanic vote.
In the next video O'Reilly and Savage both speak about liberalism in America. O'Reilly calls them "secularists". Savage sees the radical left attacking the church. Michael Savage compares Communist Russia and modern America in this video.
Fox News' O'Reilly argues with Michael Savage about Liberalism
Dr. Michael Savage (Michael Weiner) has been a successful national talk show host since 1994. His Jewish grandfather escaped Russia's Bolshevik revolution and came to the U.S.. Savage was a liberal like David Horowitz who also later became a conservative. He is not your average talk show host.
He is highly educated with two Masters degrees. One in medical botany and the other in medical anthropology. Savage has a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in nutritional ethnomedicine. He has written five New York Times best-selling books including "Trickle Up Poverty: Stopping Obama's Attack on Our Borders, Economy, and Security".

If you are in the public eye and speak the truth you will be attacked. When people speak the truth against the king, his royal subjects try to silence them. Michael Savage was banned from Britain for saying too much that the Obama administration did not like.
Dr. Manning defends Savage for being banned from Britain and tells how other conservatives like Fox News' O'Reilly will not defend him.
