Lefties More Likely to Be Diagnosed With Mental Illness

For those who don’t like surprises, here is a dog bites man story confirming that the world is the way we have come to expect it to be. Summit News reports on a survey of >8,000 people that correlates mental illness with political views:

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.”

Of those formally diagnosed with mental problems, the most common political affiliation is “Marxist” at 38%. The least common is “conservative” at 12.1%.

Once again, it has been confirmed: liberalism is a mental disorder.
