Yes, liberalism is a mental disorder.
No, liberalism is not a mental disorder.
Liberals have proven their "mental illness" through failures in policy that lead to disastrous consequences within our society. Whilst liberalism isn't technically -- by the definition given to us by psychology -- a mental illness, I believe calling it a "mental illness' would raise awareness to the fact that this flawed ideology is both dangerous and evil.
I'm not a certified psychologist, nor do I understand anything about psychology, but what I do know is that the Fox News tells me that conservatism is correct. And therefore anyone who disagrees with that is wrong (because I believe it). Facebook memes have taught me that politics is the single most important thing in the universe and that we need to be overtly passionate about it. We need to insult others who disagree with republicanism and say that they are subhuman and mentally ill because that will make me feel like the superior right wing being that I am.
Yes, some types of liberalism is. The disease has been noticed in power seekers as early as the middle ages. Back in that time they were better at spotting it and shielding themselves a little bit. Unfortunately they were still not where they should'v been due to their empire building among other things
They make poor choices, have no common sense, and have NO idea what is going on , especially when it comes to politics.
Liberals tend to have a lot of mental illnesses, but so do other political parties. Liberals are just more honest about it. Liberalism itself is not a mental disorder, and the ideas that go along with it are not either. But a lot of mentally challenged people follow liberalism and make it look like a bunch of crazies. I guess it's comparable to republicans be stupid and democrats being naive.
You can't just declare any ideology you dislike as a "mental disorder." I wouldn't even call National Socialism or Communism mental disorders.
Just because you don't agree with an ideology doesn't make it a mental disorder. If I were childish like you I would say something like "only someone who thinks that is retarded" but I'll simply imply it :3
Sure there are some crazy liberals, but which party is trump dominating again?
No more than any other ideology
First of all, Bernie Sanders does not speak that kind of hateful rhetoric, perhaps that's Trump and Cruz you're thinking of. And I do not appreciate you calling my political ideology a mental disorder. I may be mentally ill, but that's depression and anxiety which have absolutely nothing to do with my political ideology.
Liberalism is not a mental disorder. Why? Liberals can be quite radical with their phrasing and thoughts of the future for America, but think about this. They care about a lot of people. Many Republicans support the idea that the richer should not be taxed as much in proportion to the middle and lower classes. This whole class system is messed up. We've seen the effects of having a economic and political dictatorship where the top few percentages rule over the rest. Liberals protect the ideology that we are all made equal and that the private investments made by the millionaires and billionaires aren't for the good of the community. Bernie Sanders is a perfect example of a liberal that has bright ideas for the future of our children. He believes that wealth should be fairly distributed so that our economy can thrive through diversity and societal connections with other nations. No, Liberalism is not a mental disorder, but the one thing I can say is that people who believe that America was founded on hate, prejudice, and segregation of all types are ABSOLUTELY mental.
Liberalism is based on liberty and equality. So I understand why a bigot would think it's a mental disorder
What does this question even mean? No, a mental disorder is defined as "a mental or behavioral pattern or anomaly that causes either suffering or an impaired ability to function in ordinary life (disability), and which is not developmentally or socially normative." Liberals make up approximately 29% of the U.S. This is a big enough number to be considered normal. Instead of saying liberals have a mental disorder, maybe you should try to understand their beliefs and philosophies.
How can proactively looking forward be an illness at all. If anything it will be that being a republican is an illness for the simple reason that republicans and/or conservatives stick to what they know and have, and do not anticipate to changes in society. When we look around us and try to remember what is was like 10 years ago or even 20 years ago we can not deny how much has changed and the pace in which things are changing. In addition to this the pace at which things are changing is also increasing. The required changes in politics to support all these changes in society are not implemented or delayed as long as possible. And as I mentioned, conservatives/republicans have a stronger tendency for this kind of behaviour then liberals/democrats. What we often forget though, is what every politicians job is. Act in the best interest of the people they represent. And this is what conservatives/republicans have proven over and over again not to be very good at.
