Re: Medical EVIDENCE that LIBERALISM could literally be a DISEASE
Where's Doc Savage?!

Maybe I'm wrong here. Maybe I'm hearing more than what's said. But maybe not.

Long long ago, American scientists were curious about the brain. They wanted to know more about it, so they dove in, quite literally, with a scalpel.

They began to notice some similarities between patients who had this similar procedure--a labotomy, where the surgeons would rub a scalpel back and forth on one section of the brain. (which they called the 'windshield wiper experiment'

After that procedure, all patients who were involved became


lazy
lethargic
uninspired to do what they once did
lost initiative to do what they once wanted to do
they all had a tremendous desire for sameness
(they had to eat the same foods, listen to the same musics, dress the same all the time) and if anything disrupted their ability to wear those clothes or listen to that music, they would fall apart emotionally
patients couldn't focus on single minded tasks
they coudln't learn anything new
couldn't modify behavior. (Learning results in modifying behavior)
they coudln't plan/project ideas into the future. (couldn't understand basic cause/effect principals of actions)

There's more, but check out the video to hear more. Start around the 24:00 mark to hear the above symptoms that just so happen to parallel the behavior tendencies of what everyone calls 'liberals'

Re: Medical EVIDENCE that LIBERALISM could literally be a DISEASE
Liberals also have a undeveloped amygdala so they can't detect potential threats like conservatives can. A typical conservative would recognize that women might get raped when We import muslims where dumb ass liberals can't see the threat so they call us racist. Liberals also have a more pronounced part of the brain that controls envy which is why they are more concerned about a rich persons wealth instead of their own wealth.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71641081


I can understand this, though there is a balance between medical predisposition and self control. Some people can't find that balance as easily as others.

IF a person is conscious that they can intentionally curb their extreme behaviors, they are then responsible for curbing those behaviors. However, if a person hasn't been taught or informed of the true power Humans have over their own behaviors, we cannot blame them for not knowing.

Re: Medical EVIDENCE that LIBERALISM could literally be a DISEASE
could it be that some libs actually have an undesireable inflammation on this one specific part of their brain that has resulted in them completely changing their appearance, lifestyle in the ways they have?
 Quoting: Layers of Reality


My theory is that some people's brains are weak in the areas of logic, rationality, honesty and integrity.

Those weaknesses are evident in most (if not all) people of the left.

I've detected fragments of those same defects in people on the right too. Such as when the president last year called Hillary "good people." But a lack of good sense and hard-nosed honesty plagues people of the left way more than people of the right.

Liberalism is like a disease similar to Alzheimer's, dyslexia or kleptomania. It's definitely not a laudable, reassuring or honorable trait.

OP: It is actually some kind of WEIRD PSYCHOLOGICAL COMPENSATION DISEASE . Somehow, they feel that if they vote for the right government policies they can do whatever they want to in life, without needing to make the real sacrifice of helping others and thus inconveniencing themselves:

Bleeding Heart Tightwads


Liberals show tremendous compassion in pushing for generous government spending to help the neediest people at home and abroad. Yet when it comes to individual contributions to charitable causes, liberals are cheapskates.

Arthur Brooks, the author of a book on donors to charity, “Who Really Cares,” cites data that households headed by conservatives give 30 percent more to charity than households headed by liberals. A study by Google found an even greater disproportion: average annual contributions reported by conservatives were almost double those of liberals.

Other research has reached similar conclusions. The “generosity index” from the Catalogue for Philanthropy typically finds that red states are the most likely to give to nonprofits, while Northeastern states are least likely to do so.

The upshot is that Democrats, who speak passionately about the hungry and homeless, personally fork over less money to charity than Republicans — the ones who try to cut health insurance for children.

“When I started doing research on charity,” Mr. Brooks wrote, “I expected to find that political liberals — who, I believed, genuinely cared more about others than conservatives did — would turn out to be the most privately charitable people. So when my early findings led me to the opposite conclusion, I assumed I had made some sort of technical error. I re-ran analyses. I got new data. Nothing worked. In the end, I had no option but to change my views.”

Conservatives also appear to be more generous than liberals in nonfinancial ways. People in red states are considerably more likely to volunteer for good causes, and conservatives give blood more often. If liberals and moderates gave blood as often as conservatives, Mr. Brooks said, the American blood supply would increase by 45 percent.

As long as liberals have laws in place that require OTHERS to spend money or make sacrifices, they can sleep peacefully at night.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76517820


I have often said that for liberals,
"It's always something for someone else to do".

A concrete example that I've seen up close in liberal friends and associates is they bitch about global warming and fossil fuels and oil companies but they never, ever drive less. They want the government to make laws so that manufacturers have to make cars more efficient. Until then they do whatever they want, whenever they want, they go wherever they want, and point fingers at everyone else as the problem.

I've known people who bitch about other people's choices in travel and entertainment from an environmental standpoint, but when they want to get on a plane, they just do it.

People like that are known as "Limousine Liberals." Do as I say, not what I do.

The worst aspect of the liberal brain is its lack of sincere compassion and devotion to honesty. Weaknesses in humaneness and ethics are two major flaws that make any person not just repulsive but even dangerous. It just so happens that most people with those character defects happen to be the left instead of the right.

That's why the false stereotype that liberalism at least comes from a good part of the human heart is so foolish, naive and even irresponsible.

OP, Here is another one, just so you can see the study above was not a one-off fluke:

Study: Climate skeptics engage in more eco-friendly behavior than climate alarmists

The results, published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, divided subjects into three categories: the “Skeptical,” the “Cautiously Worried,” and the “Highly Concerned.” As you might expect, the “Skeptical” were most opposed to government climate policies; however, they were also “most likely to report engaging in individual-level pro-environmentalbehaviors” (emphasis added).

On the other hand, the “Highly Concerned,” while very supportive of government action on climate, were the least likely to behave in eco-friendly ways.

This pattern was found consistently through the year, leading the researchers to conclude that “belief in climate change does not appear to be a necessary or sufficient condition for pro-environmental behavior.”

Does this surprise anyone?
