About Wiki Politiki Radio Podcast

“Where left and right come front and center to face the music and dance together, to turn the funk into function and leave the junk at the junction”

Despite what we hear and see on the news, we have a deeply UNITED body politic in America.  Whether people identify as progressive, conservative, independent or “other”, the vast majority of Americans believe our current pay-to-play political system doesn’t represent them.  Particularly in the election of 2016, where the candidate named “Neither of the Above” would have won in a landslide, citizens are feeling disheartened, discouraged and disenfranchised.

The elephant — and donkey — in the living room is the growing awareness that neither of the two major parties has the people’s interest at heart, nor the good of the commonwealth for that matter.  The system is incapable of fixing itself, and so what is required is an “intervention” by the entity that our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution declare is the “sovereign” of our republic:  we, the people.

Do Shamed Men Become “Proud Boys”? The Psychology Behind Trumpism and What We Can Do About It

Aired 19 January 2021 – 5:00 PM EDT

An Interview with Psychotherapist, Author and Men’s Health Expert Jed Diamond

“Demagogue: A divisionary who spews impropaganda blaming ‘dem,’ and never ‘us’.” — Swami Beyondananda

 

Trump may be going, going, gone yet Trumpism remains.

Much has been written about Donald Trump’s psychological issues, and yet his appeal – particularly to a certain type of man – remains a bit of a mystery. Many, many people, certainly a majority of adult Americans, recognize Donald Trump as a self-serving liar and con artist. Yet many hold him as a hero, an upholder of American values, and the final firewall between our freedom and a top-down totalitarian “one world government.”

Our guest this week Jed Diamond has been studying men’s health and psychology for more than half a century. Nearly five years ago, in May 2016, he predicted Donald Trump would be the next President.

In that prophetic article, he points to Donald Trump’s childhood of serious abuse, neglect, and abandonment, and then warns that other men who have suffered similar indignities would relate to Trump, and revile the same establishment forces he does. Earlier this month, we witnessed groups such as the Proud Boys, who showed up armed in Washington, D.C. to storm the capital in support of their fearless leader. But maybe it wasn’t fearlessness, but fearfulness running them.

So … how do we address this psychological disease that nearly caused democracy’s demise? How do we reach the real people struggling with their personal pain and projecting it out on the world? And … how do we uncover the REAL concerns these wounded men hold, and bring them out for resolution?
