Reading The Psychotic Left will be an eye-opener for many.
The supposed repressive neuroses of the right pale in comparison
with the selfish, vicious paranoia of the left (sometimes assisted
by drug use and demonstrable brain damage). How can the right
have failed to prevent the growth of socialist states all over
the West with policies of filling themselves up with third-world
immigrants to make up for their own failure to educate their
young to the maximum (according to ability)?
Probably the family-venerating
Chinese will sweep all before them as the West collapses under
the ridiculous burdens which the psychotics of the left have
helped impose. But this book will allow a most enjoyable moment
of re-thinking - a new chance to accept what Eysenck first began
to explain academically in 1954.

of the triumph of the left is the proliferation of fanciful
psychiatric diagnoses for all manner of conservatives. Now Kerry
Bolton has written a factually based account of the pathology
of the left - the vanity of Rousseau, the sadistic cruelty of
the Bolsheviks, and inadequate parent-child relations of the
1960s New Left. A common thread of many of the personalities
discussed here is an overweening narcissism - the arrogance
of people who are absolutely confident in their prescriptions
for redesigning society and absolutely ruthless in putting their
ideas into action. An important contribution to a psychologically
based critique of the left.
