The great Zach Goldberg, the youngish Ph.D student who has been quantifying the explosion of “wokeness” in the news media and elsewhere over the last decade, has been looking through the raw data in the Pew Research Center’s latest American Trends Panel Survey, and unearthed some interesting findings, which you can see here. Top line: liberals are more than twice as likely as conservatives to be found to have a mental health condition.

Liberalism is an illness when viewed as a failure to emotionally and intellectually grow up. It may also be seen as an illness in that those afflicted both never take full responsibility for their own actions nor do they properly recognize that same failure in others. Children aren't expected to be fully responsible or rational in their behaviors - but at some point in adulthood we all should be. The question then which must be answered is, 'At what age should one be an adult?' That age - for numerous reasons - has sadly gotten older and older over the last few generations.

Every rational person will recognize that liberalism is a manifestation of serious mental imbalance. Liberal thought and action never work. Where dominant liberal society and government never work properly and without force.

I would wonder if people who are mentally disturbed, or seek power, to begin with are attracted to liberalism. The 10 Commandments deal with 2 main themes, being right with God and avoiding human violence and associated bad human emotions. Being right with God allows us to find love and peace that exceeds our own, human capabilities. Recognizing that humans contain dark, destructive emotions (disrespect, hatred and fury, excess passion, greed, dishonesty, jealousy) and not using them as a guide to behavior allows us to seek calmer and more useful paths for ourselves and civilization. Consider that the Left always attacks the foundational elements, religion, family, self dignity, modest behaviors and promotes disrespect, hatred, anger, jealousy, greed, dishonesty. Being shorn of human goodness and removed from God is maddening. I'm not saying that everyone has to be a religious zealot to have mental health but if there is not an appreciation and respect for the foundational principles put forth in the 10 commandments and also found in many other religions, the stability of individuals and civilizations is at risk.

I would include the premise that people who self identify as "Liberal" tend to blame everyone but themselves for their own shortcomings, which then begets the "It's not my fault, I have a mental illness" rationale. As well as this, mental illness tends to be WAY over diagnosed these days; your lack of ambition and direction in life is because you have ADHD, etc....this of course, usually coming from quite liberal-minded mental health practitioners. So the "problem" as well as the "solution" are coming from both ends of the liberal mindset. Now, if you were to ask schizophrenics if they are more liberal or more conservative, that would be interesting. As a whole, it would seem that the current Liberal platform attracts more people with unstable personalities than the conservative platform for obvious reasons. Interesting to see the divide between liberals among racial lines, however, as opposed to conservatives who don't appear to have the same racial divergences...

Liberalism requires contradictory beliefs, which in and of itself comes across as an imbalance. Liberals will defend those contradictory beliefs despite facts and evidence to the contrary. Liberals are not interested in any facts that contradict their beliefs. Liberals are resistant to common sense and logic. Liberals will always either change the subject when losing an argument or attack their opponent. More often than not, both.

Liberals are also control freaks.They want to control every aspect of our lives. The current lockdown is their utopia. One of the main reason they hate POTUS Trump is because they can't control him.

Fundamentally, a liberal wants to live life on his/her terms and insist that others facilitate it. This could include handouts at one end of the spectrum, or subservience at the other end. Most would deny the existence of God. Agree with all the above posts, especially those pointing out the highly emotional component of liberals. Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Liberals, especially those on the far left have demonstrated time and again that truth does not matter - the end justifies the means. If they have to lie, use force, whatever means necessary - this no good crisis should go to waste attitude - can only result in mental illness. It is impossible to reconcile evil with goodness. Lying, killing, violence - the tools of the left are out right evil. Living a life of evil is delusional thinking in a world that proclaims generosity and virtue. It causes a split personality disorder. The two mindsets are incompatible. This dissonance is what is causing the depression and mental illness for the left. You cannot have a battle within your mind and remain healthy. Frankly, I am surprised the statistics are showing derangement are not higher on the left. Given the disfunction, you would think it was nearing 100%.

Conservatives tend to take the meaning for freedoms as a gift to make or break our own lives without the interference from big brother and we like a orderly organized way for doing things. Liberals want *extra* freedoms in order to mostly live *out of the box*. Law and Order...maybe, sometimes. GOD? Nah not now! Maybe when HE becomes a politically convenient. Conservatives seem to age well. Liberals do not age so well. All that good time on EZ Street takes its physical toll upon them! My observations.

Does liberalism cause mental illness? Well, living in an alternate reality will cause mental illness because it is a denial of reality. Liberalism has always been out of touch with reality. I have a few relatives that are hardcore lefties. its impossible to reason with them which is another sign of mental illness. They live in their own reality as defined by liberalism. When that doesn't work, they lie and make personal attacks. The worst thing is they lie to themselves. In the end all one can do is leave them to stew in their own juices.

On the one hand, I believe that those with mental illnesses are more likely to vote on the left. The liberalism is not causing the illness; it's the other way around. Liberals are often misfits who seek power and attention from membership in a group (since they can't secure either on their own). On the other hand, liberalism offers a utopia in which all will be happy and equal and secure and fondle unicorns together. In short, it offers delusions and seeking and accepting and relishing delusions is a form of mental illness. The amazing and disturbing thing is that such individuals constitute a large proportion of the population, even in a country designed for individual freedom and achievement. What is not surprising is that there is an army of self-seeking gonefs anxious to 'lead' them and profit from their dependency and delusions.

My take on it is that liberalism is an act of disobedience. Liberalism tries very hard to undue God's ways. That is why I connect the dots of liberals and Democrats trying very hard to take God out of society. I make the very strong suggestion of opening up a Bible and start reading it. I am reading the Life Application Study Bible and it helps me to understand the Bible and tie it to current events. Does liberalism cause mental illness? Not my call to make. I do know this. Liberalism may prompt a person to make poor choices.

I can remember back to ancient times when I was in my college days and studying psychology. There were a few things that were called "mental diseases" that I thought, at the time, described perfectly the Liberal mentality of the other students who were merrily protesting the Viet Nam war --- and everything else, like being given grades. It was still politically incorrect back then so you could still call them "diseases" but now they are called "syndromes" or just plain "issues" as there are no longer is any mental diseases. (Another blow to science that came from the progressive mind-set. Everyone is "normal" .... just in different ways!) The "Peter Pan Syndrome", "arrested development", "juvenilism" and "adolescentilism" --- all kinda the same thing --- come to mind and these diseases referred to individuals who refused to grow up and take responsibility. I think that is what still effects Liberals today. They just want everything in their lives to be happy, happy and hate anyone or anything that rains even a little bit on their parade. They become prone to violence when reality seeps in too much!

These guys need to stop referring to these insane control-freaks as "liberal". They are NOT liberal in any way, shape or form. They do not support any true liberal ideals. We "conservatives" are the ones who believe in true classic liberal ideals, like our founding principles. Those insane people are Leftists and it is LEFTISM that is a mental illness among their followers. Their leaders are just plain power-mongering manipulative tyrants. They stole the "liberal" label long ago and misapplied it to themselves to mislead the public into thinking they were something they weren't. They used it as a facade to hide their true goals, and whenever we use the word to describe them, we are helping them fulfill their agenda. Dennis Prager even made a video trying to get the word out that these people are not liberal. I was so happy to see it but they don't show it on YouTube anymore. My point is that we need to stop using this misnomer. Instead we need to expose these people's real agenda. So, please let's stop helping them and stop calling them "liberals"! Words matter!!

No, the mentally ill become leftists. I think the causality arrow runs in the opposite direction. The mentally ill, the ones to whom logic, mathematics and linear rational thinking are entirely foreign and incomprehensible are mentally ill. And because of this disabilities they are attracted to the illogical, mathematically obviously unworkable, and non-linear, non-rational ideas which are being sold by the leftists.

Now it has one of the nation’s largest coronavirus hot spots.

As governors across the country fell into line in recent weeks, South Dakota’s top elected leader stood firm: There would be no statewide order to stay home.

Hunter Biden received wall-to-wall media coverage and praise from his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, in October when he announced he would resign from the board of a Chinese private equity firm by the end of the month. But six months after Hunter Biden pledged to relinquish his position with BHR Partners, no evidence has surfaced to prove he actually followed through on his promise. Hunter Biden’s lawyer, George Mesires, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in early November that his client had resigned from BHR’s board, but he did not provide any evidence of his departure from the Chinese private equity firm at the time.

Washington I see from my private incarceration at home, where I have languished for weeks, that the New York Times is accusing President Trump of wasting as much six weeks before taking action against the coronavirus. For weeks I have been dutifully washing my hands and even taken extra care to wash my feet while Mr. Trump and most of the White House staff were dawdling. What were they doing wasting time? Did the White House’s dilatory behavior have something to do with impeachment? Was that somewhat of a distraction to the Assistant Presidents in the West Wing? There were in the Times’s report only two, very fleeting mentions of impeachment.

President Donald Trump is appointing a new “Opening Our Country” task force today to jumpstart the economy by early May. But the White House cannot succeed unless it persuades governors to cooperate. By dividing power, the Constitution creates resiliency in emergencies, but also demands cooperation between the federal and state government. Responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have rendered the trade-offs inherent in public policy only more acute. Even though the coronavirus has killed more than 23,000 Americans and sickened a half-million more, strict lockdowns have held deaths significantly below worst-case projections. On the cost side of the ledger, however, just one month of shelter-in-place policies has thrown more
