Posted on 03/11/2009 11:27:07 AM PDT by John Semmens
In a bid to marginalize criticism of the massive expansion of government emerging from the Obama Administration, professors at Harvards Third Conference on Law and Mind Sciences presented evidence for what they dubbed anti-socialist personality disorder.
In one paper titled The Palliative Function of Ideology, Ph.D. candidate Jaime Napier from NYU postulated that the self-reported higher levels of personal happiness of conservatives was, in itself, a sign of serious mental illness. In a world wallowing in poverty and oppression, angst and neurosis are the healthy responses, Napier wrote. Liberals manifest a robust magnitude of both angst and neurotic tendencies in their responses to our surveys of mental attitudes.
Conservatives, on the other hand, are deficient in this area, Napier observed. Their focus on family, faith, and career is systemically pathological given the over all state of the world. Therapy is indicated.
The characterization of disagreeable political ideas as a mental illness is reminiscent of the old Soviet Union practice of labeling its dissenters as deranged and incarcerating them in hospitals for treatment.

I finally have a victim status.
You don’t know how long I have waited.
These satirical stories are great.
Love to see the DU thread on this. :)
Yeah! I always wanted to be neurotic! *smiling* :D
(PH.d candidate)....”postulated that the self-reported higher levels of personal happiness of conservatives was, in itself, a sign of serious mental illness.”
Lol! Talk about CLEAR evidence for watered-down education....
Sounds like the rationalization of a collectivist with his hands out.
I can finally let go of ALL my responsibilities !!
Of COURSE this type of satire REALLY exists in the minds of the Democrat fringe....
And there it is, time and again....
Wrong becomes right and right becomes wrong.
Isaiah 5: 20-24
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine And valiant men in mixing strong drink,Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right! Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble And dry grass collapses into the flame, So their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust; For they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel”
Is there exclusivity on this one, do you have first dibs?
The best satire is always conservative.

I’m so damn happy that liberals are so damn miserable!
I can stop ANYTIME I WANT!
Well, he got that part right.
With this new diagnosis,Anti-Soicialist Anonymous Groups are bound to be popping up in communities all across the land.
Finally! Someone can diagnose my ‘condition’! LOL!
they’ve been around for a long time, look for places that say CHURCH or GUN RANGE on their signs.
I assume Federal funding will be available to our new group?
