9781425912185: Democracy's Little Self-Help Book

WHY IS THE RIGHT WING so resistant to progressive politics? Why is the partisan right so righteous, dogmatic, and bullying? And why can't President Bush's supporters handle the truth? In witty and stylish prose, in-depth psychotherapist Peter Michaelson investigates these questions. He also explores the liberal psyche to uncover emotional addictions to feeling victimized and tendencies toward injustice collecting, losing causes, and unresolved passivity. This book reveals inner dynamics in our unconscious mind that mirror the political clash between liberals and conservatives. Here we see these emotional issues with greater clarity than ever, and we are astonished at how they contaminate the liberal-conservative divide and subvert the nation's ideals. The vital new knowledge revealed here can move us and our democracy forward. In this book we learn as much about overcoming our anger, fear, depression, worry, failure, and addictions as we do about reinvigorating our democracy. We also learn about the emotional negativity that is lodged in our psyche, undermining our behaviors, resolve, and responsibilities as citizens. This negativity, much of which operates outside of our awareness, instigates political discord and social dissension. The knowledge presented here can help us become free of our unresolved emotional issues and guide us in our quest for personal happiness and national harmony. ( 230 pages, copyright 2006)
