By Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D.
Are liberals out of their minds? Why do modern liberals think and act as they do? The radical left's politics and its destructive effects on our basic freedoms have provoked many to speculate on what makes these people tick. "The Liberal Mind" answers these questions, providing the first expert systematic analysis of the political madness that now threatens to destroy the West's greatest achievement: the American dream of civilized liberty.
In his penetrating analysis, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., reveals modern liberalism's assaults on:
- The freedom of adults to make good lives for themselves by cooperating with others
- The ability of families to raise children to be self-reliant and mutual
- The morals, rights and laws that protect our freedoms
"Modern liberalism's irrationality can only be understood as the product of psychopathology. So extravagant are the patterns of thinking, emoting, behaving and relating that characterize the liberal mind that its relentless protests and demands become understandable only as disorders of the psyche," declares Rossiter.
"The Liberal Mind" reveals the madness of the modern liberal for what it is: a massive transference of neurosis acted out in the world's political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty.
