It’s a uniquely powerful new tool: undermining peoples psychological ability to know and accept reality. In his new book: State of Confusion; Political Manipulation and the Assault on the American Mind, nationally renowned clinical psychologist and author Bryant Welch answers such questions as: Why the majority of American women voted for Trump, how fundamentalists ignore blatant immoralities in their adoration of people like Trump and Roy Moore. Bryant argues that in the place of potentially disturbing reality, a kind of ecstatic experience provides a comforting liberation to many who feel left out of and confused by recent social progress. Optimistically, this may be a needed wake up call for our seriously endangered democracy.
