#1089: Lyle Rossiter


Lyle Rossiter is a forensic psychiatrist who has done a great deal of work examining the liberal mind, attempting to explain the liberal’s “extravagant political demands, in his furious protests against economic freedom, in his arrogant contempt for morality, in his angry defiance of civility, in his bitter attacks on freedom of association, in his aggressive assault on individual liberty.” That’s how he understands “liberal”. Little wonder that he concludes that liberals are mentally ill – and not in the sense of American loons or Michael Savage, but literally mentally ill.

In other words, the presupposition for his research is: “My political views are so obviously correct that anyone who doesn’t accept them must be mentally ill;” in other words, he presupposes a right-wing political outlook and then tries to explain why other people do not accept this truth by mental illness: “[The liberal’s] neurosis is evident in his ideals and fantasies; in his self-righteousness, arrogance and grandiosity [indeed, Rossiter]; in his self-pity; in his demands for indulgence and exemption from accountability; in his claims to entitlements; in what he gives and withholds; and in his protests that nothing done voluntarily is enough to satisfy him.”

Indeed, the liberal mind is “a massive transference neurosis acted out in the world’s political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty.” Rossiter apparently does not understand the notion of “transference”, but I am not sure this is the main shortcoming of his attempt to deconstruct strawmen. His “findings” (i.e. rants) are summed up in his book The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, which seems to have been rejected by most academic publishers. Joan Swirsky, a fan, praised it for avoiding “all the usual psychobabble”, which it managed to do in virtue of not containing anything remotely related to science whatsoever. Currently Rossiter is calling for violent rebellion against the mentally ill.

Diagnosis: Two can play this game, Lyle, and out-diagnosing you as a moronic blubberhead is just as scientific as your own rantings; the difference is that we avoid strawmen, and the diagnosis is accurate and set based on evidence rather than psychological projection.

  1. Searching for "Lyle Rossiter" + "expert testimony", I learned that Dr Rossiter is not particularly good at his expert-witnessing grift; the Google provided no end of cases where courts had thrown out his testimony because he had no expertise and no evidence and was merely a hack with opinions that his clients had paid for.

    In one memorable case, "Believing that Dr. Rossiter’s testimony would do more harm than good, and after seeing the prosecutors effectively cross-examine some of the other defense witnesses, Foster’s attorneys decided not to present Dr. Rossiter’s testimony."

    I suspect that he has plenty of time to nurse his grievances, and to write books about the mental illnesses that cause the rest of the world to ignore his genius.

  2. A better source for learning what liberal means is any dictionary, which shows Rossiter a liar.

  3. Dr. Rossiter has written cogent descriptions and analyses of the pathology that Modern Liberalism supports and encourages, the origins of that based on an Eriksonian perspective, and contrasts that worldview with that of healthy adults.

    1. Define your made-up term Modern Liberalism. Like it is a condition. No wonder you don't want anyone to know who you are.

    2. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but most "healthy adults" are liberals.

    3. On the contrary: Look at their Socialism. Socialism is a dogma for those who want safety, security, and guarantees in life. Liberals' Socialism promises to - if one has any problems - give free housing, give food, provide a job, give college education, and even free medical treatment. That clearly shows the pathology of the Liberal.

    4. we are evolving into a new species that will lead to a more sane society. The problem is there are truly evil forces at work in the world as we are being manipulated to serve those in power and the elites seeking to keep control over the masses are willing to engage in a culling of the herd to limit the population from becoming to unmanageable and for them to maintain the power structure. This is not needed but they desire it as they feel it will help them maintain the power they are addicted to having. As someone who has read and owns most all of the material in the conspiracy theorist genre that is of most value I can conclude the government is a hindrance to the human races evolution as it now serves the elites who are aligned with and serving a living force of evil that is proven to exist as a metaphysical entity called the yaldabaoth. This plasmatic energy being feeds on humanities lower emotions of fear and hatred. The elites feel this entities agenda aligns with their best interests since they align with depopulation agendas etc.. Even though the evil force has other agendas that the elites are ignorant of that have more to do with enslavement of the human race as a farm animal, ie livestock and like the matrix movies wishes to control the human race as a resource that can serve the agenda of its evil. The left thinks we need the state and it is convinced of this as it worships the state as a god. It is a non living, dead God but they do worship its corpse still. A great speaker on this topic is Mark Passio google and watch his videos. He is a whistleblower who left the church of satan as well having been ordained as a high priest by Anton LaVey himself. As a metaphysician he is very knowledgeable of the mystery schools teachings and like him I too am a student of the occult but we must also study the whistleblowers who are now coming out about the secret space program to truly understand the power tip agenda of the left. Actually they are brainwashed and suffering from stockholm syndrome like good little sheep. Still intense study of that topic gives one a more correct understanding of our future evolution and what I see happening to us is that we are about to be upgraded into a much more cosmic type of entity if we have personally developed enough to handle that path. This planet is like a test tube of sorts where DNA is experimented with by many et civilizations trying to have their say on how we should all evolve to be more functional and evolved life forms. The school we think we are in where we learn the difference between good and evil is just one aspect of the planet but it is not one where we are meant to labor for all eternity as if we are doomed here to an inescapable hell, the ascended cosmic beings who visit this planet are attempting to get us to choose love and compassion so that we can activate the process of true energetic ascension that coincides with the cosmic patterns of evolution designed into the galaxy and its frequencies that manifest as DNA. Ever wonder why Man is the model for life throughout the galaxy since all ET's have 2 legs 2 arms and a single head with 2 eyes 1 mouth etc....

    5. The work of David Wilcock where he explains the research of other scientists who are doing outrageous experiments with DNA is required study for anyone that wants to understand the future direction of humanity and how we are evolving. Coincidentally he is sharing the spotlight on a show with one of the better whistle blowers from the secret space program. I think it is probably impossible for anyone not to be a trusted intellectual with any opinion on anything if they are unfamiliar with the vast repository of knowledge and work that David Wilcock has put out. He has changed science with his new take on the works of other scientists as he ties their collective work into one overarching grand vision of the way things are and he does so far better than anyone else, who I have found engaging in such work. His shift into conspiracy theory work is a period that turns off many who preferred his early more science based research but the changes that are coming upon humanity are such that his focus in this area is needed at this time. I am of the opinion that conspiracy theorists are the great thinkers of our time and that those who lack mental ability to pursue their avenues of exploration are mentally nothing more than sheep who have been entrained to follow the will of the controllers since they are trapped in a comfort zone with no desire to explore uncomfortable thoughts that may upset their day by creating a need to evolve a new world view. This would be troublesome for them as they have no faith in anything being there to lead them to the correct view that best reflects our reality. David Wilcocks take on things may at first offend and upset people trapped in wrongness but as time goes by and you start to think more deeply as you consider his material it becomes shockingly clear to you he is really onto something and if your not getting it right off the bat it is going to take some study and exploration on your minds part to get to that level of acceptance so those of us who do get there are truly the most special people of greatest understanding on this planet. Those who can't hang with us are the unclean ignorant savages by way of comparison.

    6. http://spherebeingalliance.com/blog/transcript-cosmic-disclosure-blue-avians-spheres-in-ancient-art.html here is an article that discusses human evolution as it relates to many of the things I mentioned earlier.

  5. the liberal mental disorder is measured electrically as a brain disorder that is seen in those who have an overactive right brain or relatively speaking a weak left brain and before you search google for intel to discredit the theory of right and left brain theory you should know the debunkers who put out that article you dimwits will find based his conclusion on MRI's which do not chart in any way the brains electrical activity meaning he is a theorist not a scientist who deals with facts.

    As a result of this disorder they worship the state as their new mother since they have a root cause of their disorder and it is they did not get enough attention from their mother growing up so now they want the state to be their surrogate mother.

    Those who suffer from an overactive left brain are likewise imbalanced and want the state to be more like their daddy because they did not get enough attention from their father growing up and so they want a strong military and are just as much of a problem to the society of sane people as those on the left are but were the leftist is a drain on society those on the right are far more responsible and not a drain and in fact serve as police and military more than not so you benefit from their efforts a lot more while we as a society are harmed by liberals being a financial drain on the society.
