Don’t Need A Doctor To Know They’re Crazy

Just like Dylan doesn’t need a Weatherman to tell him which way the wind blows.

SLAPSHOT continues to spoon feed us information. This time a clinical psychiatrist, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, has diagnosed the liberals as suffering from a mental disorder.

“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.”

In a summary drawn from his book:

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.

Hmmm, sounds like a familiar historical movement. 1) Jews control all the money and are to blame for the situation. 2) We were victimized by the rest of Europe. 3) Jews!  4) Service to the state.

Hayek well summed up the appeals to the least common denominator in order to consolidate power.  This is nothing new, the politics of envy and emotion.

    Dr. Rossiter succinctly and accurately described American Liberal politics. In four bullet points he clearly drew a picture of the methods used by Liberals to gain and maintain their political constituency.
