Liberal Minds

I like to go back and read posts and comments from the past. It's funny sometimes how right they were.

This from a good friend:

Acouple of quotes for you by Dr. Lyle H. Rossiter Jr. M. D. from his book called THE LIBERAL MIND;THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CAUSES OF POLITICAL MADNESS (2008)
"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."

" Like spoiled, angry children, they {liberals} rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

And not an exact quote from the book but the ideas here condensed:
While we do not say that liberals are ipso facto clinically mad, there are many characteristics of liberalism that are associated with the classic symptoms of madness, including:
*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.

I have seen so many people like this in my career. People who never grow up and never want to. They think the world owes them a living as my grandma used to say.
