“Is Xenophilia a Mental Illness?
A Vice article
published on Tuesday has reignited the debate over whether racism (or
“pathological bias,” to use the clinical term proposed by psychiatrists) should
be considered a mental illness and included in the Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
. In turn, I would like to raise the
question of whether pathological xenophilia should be considered a mental
The idea of racism or anti-Semitism as a mental illness can be traced back
to the 1930s. In a classic case of projection, Jewish psychologists such as
Freud and Wilhelm Reich attributed German anti-Semitism to sexual neuroses.
Others identified it with paranoia and mass psychosis. The Authoritarian
, a highly influential book written by mostly Jewish academics
in 1950, diagnoses fascists with a personality disorder caused by excessively
In the 1960s, black psychiatrists in America, led by Alvin Poussaint,
pushed for “extreme bigotry” to be recognized as a mental disorder. (The APA
rejected their proposal on the grounds that racist views were the norm among
Southerners.) Jane Elliott, the mother of diversity training, also described
racism as a mental illness. More recently, psychiatrist Carl Bell proposed that
extreme racism is symptomatic of an underlying personality disorder, such as
narcissism. In 2012, “pathological bias” was included in the Oxford Handbook
of Personality Disorders
The DSM, far from being infallible scripture, is simply a reflection of the
values upheld by the APA and modern Western society at large. A hermit who
devotes himself to solitary pursuits might be diagnosed with schizoid
personality disorder. Normal boys with an abundance of physical energy are
routinely diagnosed with ADHD. Blacks are disproportionately likely to be
diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder, antisocial personality disorder,
and schizophrenia, but their lawless behavior is normal by African standards.
Homosexuality was categorized as a mental illness until 1973, when a gay
cabal within the APA agitated for its removal from the DSM. (I do not consider
homosexuality a mental illness, but its removal from the DSM was clearly a
political maneuver.) In 2013, gender identity disorder was reframed as “gender
dysphoria,” and its description was carefully modified to emphasize that the
diagnosis pertains to the distress experienced by transsexuals on account of
societal discrimination, as opposed to their delusional thinking. Last year,
the APA issued a statement
condemning “harmful masculinity” and claiming that it causes psychological
distress. These are presented as judgments grounded in scientific reality, but
they are purely qualitative and arbitrary.
The pathologization of racism is, of course, immediately reminiscent of the Soviet Union’s abuse of psychiatry. Dissidents were
diagnosed with “sluggish schizophrenia,” a made-up illness supposedly
characterized by the gradual onset of full-blown schizophrenia. Symptoms
included pessimism, social maladjustment, and “delusional” thinking. Dissidents
diagnosed with the illness were imprisoned in psychiatric hospitals, where they
were subjected to various means of torture.
The idea of racism as a mental illness has met opposition from the younger
(mostly gen-Z) crowd of woke activists, many of whom have been diagnosed with a
litany of mental illnesses and boast of their diagnoses with pride. Declaring
that one has “anxiety” or “OCD” has become a form of in-group signaling,
particularly among white Leftists, who lack the status of POC. The more
victimized you are, the better. Many younger activists see mental illnesses not
as obstacles that must be reckoned with, but as identities to be celebrated and
embraced. It would become rather uncomfortable for them if racism came to be
officially recognized as a mental illness.
Some Leftists also fear that labeling racism as a mental illness would
absolve racists of responsibility and allow them to get away with being openly
racist. So Leftists fall on both sides of this debate. But all are in agreement
that racism is evil and delusional. The very fact that the link between racism
and psychopathology is a matter of debate among psychiatrists in the first
place is a testament to that.
One could make a much stronger case for the idea that acute xenophilia is a
mental disorder. It represents a pronounced deviation from healthy human
behavior and works against one’s self-interest. The lack of alignment between
one’s racial/ethnic identity and one’s loyalties can also cause psychological
A moderate degree of xenophilia is not pathological. White people are
uniquely curious about the world and its peoples, which is one of our most
distinctive traits. Only a white man could have founded the discipline of anthropology.
But in the past, our fascination with foreign ways of life did not threaten to
subvert our identity because we had a strong sense of pride and maintained
clear boundaries between us and non-whites. Our open-mindedness did not devolve
into suicidal ethno-masochism.
Rachel Dolezal is a good example of someone who is pathologically
xenophilic. When Dolezal made headlines in June 2015 for pretending to be
black, many (including Dolezal herself) likened her to Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner,
who had recently come out as transgender. The comparison is apt. Both
individuals suffer from delusional thinking and an over-identification with the
“Other” that verges on fetishism.
Most white liberals are not as xenophilic as Dolezal, but they exhibit a
similar over-identification with non-whites. They are more offended by the
so-called “murder” of a handful of black criminals than they are by the slow
genocide of their own people. They celebrate the destruction of their own
civilization and sympathize with those who want to see them dead. The thought
patterns of the average white liberal are uncomfortably similar to those of
someone like Dolezal, who is clearly a disturbed individual suffering from
Apart from the question of whether pathological xenophilia itself can be
considered a mental illness, it is incontestable that abnormally xenophilic
people — white liberals — are more likely to be mentally ill than their
“xenophobic” counterparts. 38%
of white liberals (56% of white liberal women) have been diagnosed with a
mental illness, compared to 15% of conservatives. Of course, there are other
factors that account for this statistic: white liberals are more likely to consult
psychiatrists and may engage in malingering to get victim points, and white
liberal women are more likely to be childless and thus unhappy. But even
considering those caveats, the discrepancy is striking.
Many people have remarked on the connection between Leftism and
psychopathology. Most recently, Danish researcher Emil O. W. Kierkegaard
published a comprehensive study
subject. His conclusion replicates results found elsewhere. The results confirm
the general pattern from before, namely that there is a strongly elevated risk
for mental illness among the extreme liberals (+150%), a small increase among
the liberals and slightly liberals (+29 to 32%), and somewhat lower rates among
conservatives and extreme conservatives (-17 to 24%).
There are a number of explanations for the link between xenophilia and
mental illness. First, xenophilia correlates with what psychologist Ernest
Hartmann described as “thin boundaries.” For people with thin mental
boundaries, the lines between reality and fantasy and self and other are
blurred. They have a weaker grasp on reality and matters of identity, which
makes them more susceptible not only to liberalism, but also to schizophrenia
spectrum disorders and borderline personality disorder.
Second, xenophilia and mental illness both stem from genetic mutations. The
most fundamental instincts in all living things are to survive, pass on one’s
genes, and defend one’s tribe. These instincts have prevailed through natural
selection for obvious reasons. Adhering to ideologies that violate our natural
instincts — liberalism, anti-natalism, atheism (religiosity is pro-social and
facilitates tribal cohesion) — is, therefore, highly maladaptive. One would
expect the adherents of such ideologies to have high mutational load, and that
is indeed the case: Edward Dutton established this in his paper
load and atheism.
High mutational load is associated with mental illness. Mentally ill people
are more likely to exhibit indicators of high mutational load such as
fluctuating asymmetry, minor physical anomalies, and poor physical health
(particularly allergies, asthma, and poor immune function). As Dutton has
pointed out, mutants would have been more likely to die in infancy under
pre-industrial conditions, and the cultural dominance of maladaptive ideologies
today is partly a consequence of the relaxed selection that characterizes
Third, in-group preference is linked to oxytocin (yes, our vicious hatred is
partly a product of the “cuddle hormone”), which has been hypothesized to have
preventative effects against anxiety, depression, and autism.
Finally, white people with low self-esteem may be inclined to identify with
those whom they perceive to be weak and oppressed, leading them to side with
non-whites. Ted Kaczynski attributes this phenomenon to oversocialization
oversocialized person comes to believe that the course of his life is outside
his control, which produces feelings of powerlessness and a defeatist
worldview. I would attribute it more to liberals’ innate neuroticism and
susceptibility to depression.
Not all liberals are mentally disturbed, of course, and not all are
congenitally disposed to liberalism and xenophilia. Many are simply ideological
conformists who were brainwashed into espousing liberal views. But the
unmistakeable link between xenophilia and mental illness should give one pause.
The dominant ideology in the West today is an expression of maladaptive
instincts and disproportionately appeals to people who are mentally disturbed.
No civilization can survive under such conditions.

From my observations, I have found that virtue
signaling seems to exist in people who lack an inner moral compass. They lack
the thought process that the rest of us have that guide us to reason and think
through right from wrong. Instead they have a moral wind vane, so to speak.
They look about to see which way the wind is blowing, in order determine what
is generally deemed as ‘good.’ They then adopt that position. Of course, being
stunted in their moral reasoning, they believe in other false logic like:” if
something is good then a lot more of it is even better (extremism)”. Or: “if I
deem something to be good then everybody should be forced to do it, even on the
pain of death.”
These people quite often will form opinions based
on very little or false evidence. These opinions are often formed from
impressions, without any effort to research the subject matter. They could care
less about Clifford’s Principle because in their schooling they had their
self-esteem regularly pumped up and deemed their unearned privileges as
“rights.” They love clever sayings and catch-word and catch-phrases that often
cover immoral ideas and ideologies. Ideas that would be quickly be discarded by
those better equipped to examine the long term consequences of a particular

psychologist, women will instinctively attune toward confidently aggressive
males. White males as a group, very largely as a result of sustained attack by

bad-boy Blacks, who are the very embodiment of the Dunning-Kruger syndrome.”
