Playing for Team Human today, mental health counselor and author of “Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control” Steven Hassan.
Hassan joins Team Human to discuss how today’s political movements constitute cults, his experience being recruited by the Moonies while in college, and why mass civic education about the psychology of influence is important to protect ourselves from indoctrination both domestic and international.
In his monologue, Rushkoff discusses the recent infusion of technology in theatrical productions and why it distorts one of theatre’s original purposes of real human bodies in physical space. “There are still a few of these precious remaining values and modalities where the human form is celebrated.” He says of the theatre.
