FAR LEFT LINKED TO PSYCHOPATHY IN GROUNDBREAKING STUDY
A NEW STUDY UNDERSCORES THE VIOLENT, AUTHORITARIAN, AND NARCISSISTIC NATURE OF THE FAR LEFT
In a groundbreaking new study published in Current Psychology researchers have found that Left-wing extremism is linked to toxic, psychopathic tendencies and narcissism.
Is it a bridge too far to link the Progressive movement?
While the study acknowledges that extensive research has been conducted on the far Right it admits that data on the Left is scarce. It is unsurprising that academic interest, which leans far Left, has focused its energy on their perceived enemies.
“By many researchers, the notion of left-wing authoritarianism (LWA)…been met with skepticism. Thus, we wanted to investigate LWA and its personality correlates using a recently published measure for LWA by Costello and colleagues (2022).”
The following are excerpts from the study:
“…an individual high in Left Wing Extremism might declare anyone to be ‘old fashioned’ who is opposing their own ‘progressive values,’ strive to suppress free speech to regulate the expression of right-wing beliefs in educational institutions, and even endorse the use of violence to reach their own political goals.”
We can see this use of violence in nearly every Left-led “protest” over the past five years. From BLM, to Covid, to trans rights, to abortion, to the Second Amendment, the progressives Left is prone and eager to use violence.
“The researchers did not find a relationship between LWA and altruism, indicating that LWA and altruism are not strongly linked.” - PsyPost
“Social justice is often used as a guise for these activists to behave unhinged, the research noted.”
“In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.”
This study underpins the fact that the Left & Progressives have high narcissistic traits. They think they are better than everyone else and justify violence in order to satisfy their personal agendas.
We have been gaslit for years as the Left justifies violence and authoritarian information control. Simultaneously the progressive Left projects an image of themselves as “the peaceful protestor”.
The progressive Left prosecuted and condemned the actions of protestors during the January 6th riot in a farcical and hypocritical way as they continually turned a blind eye to a growing faction of violent extremists in their own ranks.
Many moderates read studies like this and respond with, “It’s obvious”, but do not discount the impact the study will have in supporting your fight to extinguish the gaslight.
The progressive Left approves of violence and authoritarian control of public discourse and thought.
We encourage you to read the study by Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams.
