Survey Finds People Who Identify as Left-Wing More Likely to Have Been Diagnosed With a Mental Illness

Paul Joseph Watson

A new survey of more than 8,000 people has found that those who identify with left-wing political beliefs are more likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness.

Ann Coulter’s “liberalism is a mental disorder” catchphrase has become something of a clichéd meme, but the data appears to support it.

 

Carried out by Slate Star Codex, the online survey collected a wealth of data from respondents about their education, demographic, lifestyle and political views.The results show that people who occupy the farther left end of the political spectrum are more likely to have been “formally diagnosed with depression, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia.”null

In addition, the results show that the highest percentage of respondents (38%) who admit being diagnosed with forms of mental illness also identify politically as Marxists.

In comparison, just 12.1% of conservatives say they have been diagnosed with a mental disorder.

While the survey is by no means scientific, it does give an insight into how disturbed people are more likely to be attracted to fringe leftist beliefs, which in a lifestyle sense usually encourage degeneracy and a lack of moral responsibility.

“It’s not a myth that left-wingers are more mentally ill,” said conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos. “And it’s not a surprise the internet has elevated crazy people with too much time on their hands to a central place in the national discourse. The “social web” is a social fucking catastrophe.”

  2. Liberalism is not necessarily “Left”. For instance I could be pigeon holed as a liberal because I want the fucking Roman Catholic church out of my life & the bedrooms of the nation.

    On the other hand I’m a financial conservative.

    • The left don’t create.
      They steal from what others make.
      This is no more true than in the way socialists want to take other people’s money without effort on their behalf.
      The current sicko COL have taken this a large step closer with no accountability for collecting benefits.

      True classic liberalism embraces freedom of speech; secularism; limited government (therefore limited handouts) and freedom of association .
      It is pretty much what the French Revolution was about and liberalism is the opposite of what life represented under the repressive monarchy and tiers of privilege in France and its colonies in the centuries prior to 1789.
      The first part of the 1800s Wild West USA up to at least 1860 was the best working example of liberalism.
      That was pretty extreme and an example of why political ideals work best on paper as with communism and marxism.
      Real world solutions generally require a mixed model.

      The recent emergence of the term ‘liberal’ is theft from the left.
      It is part of doublespeak that Orwell wrote of more than 70 years ago but has jumped into the lexicon in the last 5+ years with incorrect context.
      It is massive misuse of the term. These so- called liberals don’t want freedom of speech nor others to express their view if it differs from their own.
      They want control over others = the opposite of liberalism.
      The NZ Green pardy was stolen from rescuers like Rod Donald and taken over by wreckers like Flag Norman and Hamas-Hugger Davidson.

      Those who regularly use the term ‘liberal’ now are misusing it but hey I get pissed off when people use the term ‘decimated’ when they mean ‘annihilated’.
      Annihilate comes from the word ‘Nihil’ = Nothing, left.
      Decimate comes from ‘ten (deci) percent of the population was removed’ = an old Roman term.
      If the dam was washed away by flood waters it was annihilated, not decimated.
      If it was decimated, 90% would still be there.

      However inarticulate fools that have peanut allergies and can’t use sticking plasters went to journalism skoowl to perfect their lying and use these words incorrectly probably because it was ‘too hard’ to learn the correct language and anyway it cut into Fakebook time and being an instagram ‘influencer’.

      Stick with what you know to be correct and ignore the fools that cannot articulate proper like, know what I mean?

    • In reality most rational people sit on a spectrum that varies with the issue under consideration.

      Identity politics dispenses with that and judges someone on their group identity. Left or far right. No middle ground and therefore common ground is overlooked.

      This is the reality of popular social and political discourse. We are in bad shape.

  3. “And it’s not a surprise the internet has elevated crazy people with too much time on their hands to a central place in the national discourse. The “social web” is a social fucking catastrophe.”
    Twitter would account for 90% of the hate and bullshit on the interwebs and its populated almost entirely by woke outraged lefties. The sooner that place gets taken down for hate speech the better. Reddits not much better.

  4. The Left seem to be very unhappy with the way the world is run (and at the same time are unable to understand or to want to understand why the world is the way that it is).

    The Left seek “Utopia” or “an extreme ideal” or (dare I say it) “the Final Solution” and to them, the end always justifies the means. After all, as one (in)famous leader once said, “You can’t make an omlette without cracking a few eggs.”

    • 16 and probably brown. Sounds like he is the victim. The cultural and other reports will portray it that way. I promise.
