Call it Global Stockholm Syndrome, Mass Psychogenic Illness, or the Leftist Plague, as it will be called, in a hundred years, by grandparents who are explaining to their grandchildren the demise of Western civilization. The disease that leaves the sufferer with not an ounce of critical thinking ability — and, yes, leftism is a disease, one that is airborne, one that is spreading rapidly, and one that, sadly, there is no cure for.
First, we have to diagnose leftism, in the hopes that we can one day find a cure and even better, a vaccine to save future children the pain and suffering that goes along with this horrible disease. So, if you think you are coming down with symptoms, or fear loved ones are, or that 90 percent of your Facebook page has been infected with the leftist plague, here are the 20 ways of the “am I,” or “are you,” or “are they” leftist test:
The list could keep going, and leftism, like alcoholism, is a disease that only the sufferer can truly diagnose. But, if you have answered “yes” to at least one of these, I would highly suggest getting immediate medical attention. If you are not seeing a psychiatrist, there is no time like the present, and if you get that message asking if this is a medical emergency, please call 911; please do. If you have answered “yes” to three or more of these questions, an exorcism would be more beneficial. I’m afraid that, even with all the advances in modern medicine and therapy, your disease might be beyond human repair.
