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

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.”

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.”

Inne badania mowia ze ludzie o prawicowych
pogladach lepiej toleruja klamstwa i zapewne
sami czesciej klamia.

Sondaz mial sie rzekomo opierac na podanych
dobrowolnie danych. Jezeli tak, i prawda jest
ze poziom moralny jest nizszy na Prawicy to
pewnie i wiecej klamiacych bylo w sondazu,
co moglo by tlumaczyc takie a nie inne wyniki.

The study of 649 U.S. citizens examined three types of lying by politicians: lying by commission (saying something that is untrue), lying by omission (leaving out important information to hide the truth), and paltering (using truthful facts to create a false impression.)

The participants read examples of a hypothetical politician lying by commission, lying by omission, and paltering. They then provided a rating of how ethical, honest, and moral they thought the each of the politician’s statement were.

People who scored higher on a measure of right-wing authoritarianism tended to be more tolerant towards politicians who engaged in all three types of lying.
