Legal Definitions:
UNSOUND MIND, MEMORY – These words have been adopted in several statutes, and sometimes indiscriminately used to signify, not only lunacy, which is periodical madness, but also a permanent adventitious insanity as distinguished from idiocy.

DEFENSE, INSANITY – A criminal defense asserting that at the time of the commission of the acts constituting the offense, the defendant, as a result of a severe mental disease or defect, was unable to appreciate the nature and quality or the wrongfulness of his acts. Mental disease or defect does not otherwise constitute a defense. U.S.C. 18 (in other words inability to distinguish right from wrong).

Thanks to bias, politically biased people have a distorted view of reality. The perfect example of bias is the little known scientific fMRI brain scan study with politically biased people from each side. The study proved that politically biased people dismiss negative things about their leader heroes, and during the dismissals their reward centers in their brains actually fire. In effect, they actually get a rush from dismissing the painful truth in the same way that drug addicts do when they get their fix. True drug addicts are usually just as much addicted to the rush of the game as they are their drugs, in fact its often what brings them back.

“And they get quite a rush from ignoring information that’s contrary to their point of view.”

“When presented with negative information about the candidates they liked, partisans of all stripes found ways to discount it, Westen said. When the unpalatable information was rejected, furthermore, the brain scans showed that volunteers gave themselves feel-good pats the scans showed that reward centers in volunteers brains were activated. The psychologist observed that the way these subjects dealt with unwelcome information had curious parallels with drug addiction as addicts also reward themselves for wrong-headed behavior.”

The average political person usually seems to fall into the line of binary thinking (left/right, on/off, good/evil, 0/1, etc). If they hear news that glorifies their side (or any member of it) they enter a state of bliss and glory; they feel as if they’re personally right. When they hear negative news about their guy they automatically start searching for reasons it must be false its all just a smear campaign by the right/left.

They have absolutely no desire to know the truth about much of anything, obviously, since they only wish see their guys look good so they can go and gloat to their opposite coworker or whoever. This is the dark side of our indoctrinated competitiveness that nobody likes to talk about. Its so widespread that there would be mass hysteria if all news outlets were to continually broadcast that bias study for several weeks straight. Talk about a buzz kill, or would there be a greater collective high from biased people of both sides dismissing the study and the implications the phenomena plays on their mindsets and perception of history? The powers at be could have all sorts of fun playing that sick joke on everyone just to watch everyone scramble, and test their devotion like never before. But that will never happen because they’d lose too much power of manipulation and justifiable treachery.

This is dangerous because it allows the leaders to get away with anything, no wonder nobody cared when the news got out about both Bush and Kerry being members of the ultra-elite Skull & Bones. Its not even like its a theory, its a fact and it even made mainstream news, yet nobody cared. So if you get millions of people who disregard issues like that and forget about them, what will happen when you show them far worse things and more importantly things that are vast in scope? Dismissed! Political bias is also dangerous because you’ll get people who will believe bad things against the enemy without actually checking into the claims.

Clearly, politically biased people are legally insane, because they cant decypher right from wrong when assessing their favored politicians. They also legally have unsound minds because they legally are under permanent insanity as a result. Additionally, they’re scientifically addicted to this sad form of insanity, as proven by Westins’ study (be sure to read that entire article). Because of the addiction, this would indicate that the phenomena is also a disease. Since learning is described as ‘Any improvement in behavior, information, knowledge, understanding, attitude, values or skills’, it is safe to say that people should take this disease very seriously.

Disease; Noun: An impairment of health or a condition of abnormal functioning.

Addiction is now narrowly defined as “uncontrolled, compulsive use despite harm”; if there is no harm being suffered by, or damage done to, the patient or another party, then clinically it may be considered compulsive, but within this narrow definition it is not categorized as “addiction”.

Luckily this addiction, this disease, doesn’t constitute physical dependency, therefore treatment should theoretically be far easier than the typical physically addictive substances of abuse.

The treatment of this psychological disease could go as follows:

  1. Begin with the affected individuals reading the study article first.
  2. This article should be presented second, so that they begin to not only realize the harsh realities of their addiction, but also so that they may begin to realize the potential harm they may be doing to both themselves and society as a whole. If they are allowing their elected leaders to commit crimes without acknowledgment then they are clearly a threat to society. Typical hardcore drug addicts can pose a threat to society, but realistically they only pose a threat to people or property that they may come into contact with. The political addict is a far greater threat to society, because our very nation is in jeopardy when they are getting their fix. To not be aware of the existence and potential of any sort of problem is to live in ignorance. Most drug addicts never realize there is an actual problem not just until it gets out of their control. Unless the politically biased individual realizes that they have an society threatening problem they have little to no chance of recovery.
  3. Typically, in dealing with individuals that possess a society threatening addiction, tough love should be the policy in dealing with the affected person. Luckily, political addiction isnt normally a physical addiction, so therefore such tactics arent quite necessary in dealing with this particular disease. At this point you should begin to show them the parallels and ongoing downfalls that result from the social group think political-bias phenomenon. Tough Love could actually be counterproductive is the case of politics simply because the whole point of politics is to divided us anyways.
  4. In the 4th Phase, the patient should undergo contradiction treatment. This involves showing the patient examples of their preferred leader(s) contradicting themselves or the ideals of The People or the nation. The same rule applies for any possible contradictions that can be applied to the entire party (Democrats voting YEA on the PATRIOT Act). The more examples the better. This phase of treatment should potentially be the longest, if possible.
  5. In the 5th Phase, patients should be administered evidence that clearly presents their preferred leaders for what they, and more specifically their clear and obvious failures (Bush on Katrina, for starters). Also, clear violations of their own religions, if any. If possible, avoid topics that the patient would already know and have already dismissed before treatment. Later, re-introduce the topics that theyve most likely already dismissed. Care must be used to not overwhelm the victims of political bias, because they may snap and not allow themselves to learn and therefore receive their treatment.
