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.
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.ReplyDelete
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.
The man is 100% correct regarding the looney left.Delete
A better source for learning what liberal means is any dictionary, which shows Rossiter a liar.ReplyDelete
Ah nope - we're talking about "MODERN LIBETALS" = ie- Progressive/statist's.Delete
Not classic libetal nor true liberal arts.
No - these are modern wingnuts just as his book puts under the microscope to expose for their absolute dangerous stupidity
wingnuts are found on both extremes!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Define your made-up term Modern Liberalism. Like it is a condition. No wonder you don't want anyone to know who you are.Delete
I hate to be the one to break this to you, but most "healthy adults" are liberals.Delete
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.Delete
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....Delete
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.Delete

Healthy adults can't be modern "liberal's as they are moonbatcrazies ~!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.
"Those who suffer from an overactive left brain"Delete
You might want to do some more studying on cognitive neuroscience - as that whole right brain left brain is crap. Had a psychiatrist, I worked with, scream at me that it was correct- however, it was NEVER, an actual proven 'theory' and with EEG's we can see the entire brain works all at once, only some regions o the brain are more active than others in some people, at some times.
I can't say right-wing people are anymore ethical than left wing as I have found them both to be equally unethical. Both can be criminal in their thinking, but it is coming from different thinking patterns.
It is the over active limbic region, particularly the amygdalae, we see in overly emotional/immature people.
THE CRIMINAL mind can be found in people who present as cool, calm and collective, a true psychopath like Ted Bundy or the Charles Manson's of the world. Most inmates are unable to control their emotions, but we also have very calculating ones as well- I like to call them politicians.
After watching this past Presidential election & inauguration meltdown of the liberals, I say the good Doctor is dead on. The Womens March 1/22/2017, was yet another example of the psychosis.ReplyDelete
Plenty of documented evidence out there, pics, videos and audio.
EXACTLY! I have worked on the outpatient Mental Health Team as a Clinical Social Worker, in prisons, since 1996 and I have said the same thing about what I have seen since the election. Not to mention the behaviors of the DNC staff - totally criminal thinking patterns.Delete
I am an independent because I have worked under both administrations and found them both to be lacking in ethics - so we are forced to vote between two evils, however, I have never seen anything, in my 60 years, like we have seen during this election. The corruption on the side of the DNC was mind boggling. And that no one is ever held accountable, even more incredulous! I must say, inmates act more emotionally stable than what we have witnessed.en.
Your "good Doctor" is shunned by his peers and his research hasn't been published by any respectable recognized chapters of Psychiatry or Psychology because it didn't pass muster! No that's not exactly right. Let me rephrase that. Nothing of his findings (Rantings and Ravings, opinions without test subjects?) could be published because there wasn't any research? Not any scientific, quantifiable research?? His findings were all contrived and made up in his head??? His book is more a novel than anything else! You'd be hard pressed to find any Drs. of Psychiatry or Psychology who would vouch for him? He was a much hired "expert" court witness for many cases! Almost every one of the cases that he served as an expert has been overturned or outright rejected by juries! Lawyers stopped using him in 2010?? He's a lunatic!Delete
Dr. Rossiter musings about the liberal mind are in no way grounded in any research, attachment theory, or anything credible. Certainly not taught as a mental health concept. Really strange. I'm not sure what is going on with him to lead him to suggest this is a legitimate disorder. Anybody seen it in DSM?Delete
Oh dear.. the leftards don't like that somebody has sussed them out so they prove Rossiter's theories beautifully by getting all hysterical. Shut up and sit down you idiots.ReplyDelete
Interesting note. Care to provide some examples of "hysterical" from any of the "leftards" above? I mean, let's take your own comment "Shut up and sit down you idiots" as the standard: where, in the post or comments, do you anything that is clearer evidence of hysteria than your own comment?Delete
I guess then liberals are crazy and Donald Trump is the picture of mental health. What is going on here with the bashing/hatred toward "liberals" ? Is this a Right-wing site?Delete

Clear analysis by Rossiter.ReplyDelete
"The liberal (Ameshevik) 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.
~ Dr Lyle Rossiter
You may agree with him. In no way, however, does he provide a clear analysis.Delete
I hope everyone here realizes Dr. Rossiter served in the U.S. Army as Chief of Neurophsychiatry. Y'all really don't think the Army would appoint "any old loon" to that position, I hope.ReplyDelete
