@ASoulAFire @JaniceOCG @AtwoodSociety Psychiatrist James C. McIntosh, M.D. @DrJamesCMcInto1 joins Thurs., 2/3/22, 8 pm ET, “If America Fails?” looking at mental health issues in @HandmaidsOnHulu & American culture, on TWN’s YouTube channel. You’re invited! #MentalHealthMatters
Dr. James C. McIntosh, Retired Psychiatrist, Co-Chair and Co-Founder of Committee to End Media Offensive to African People (CEMOTAP), WBAI radio host of the MIND FIELD, and author of The Unauthorized Psychoanalysis of Rudolph Giuliani and The Unauthorized Psychoanalysis of Donald Trump, joins “If America Fails?: The Coming Tyranny” for the Thursday, February 3, 2022, 8 pm ET episode, we are pleased to announce.
This episode focuses our attention on the mental health issues in The Handmaid’s Tale and current American culture – both of which demonstrate many troubling stressors, traumas, challenges and threats.
What does it mean for the mind to be forced into servitude, without control over one’s body?
How is it that so many of the people of the U.S. seemingly went along with demands of the new Gilead regime?
Now that Donald Trump is off of Twitter and out of our faces, what is going on with the people who appear to be Ever Trumpers?
Why are Americans so divided over whom to hold accountable for January 6th, and what would a failure of accountability suggest for our future?
What is additional trauma to the Black community likely to mean – and is there a way to protect ourselves from a coming tyranny?
I am just beginning to think about questions to ask this mental health expert. You can take this time between now and February 3rd to let me know what questions you would like Dr. McIntosh to address. #MentalHealthMatters See you then! — LMO
