Old Mole Variety Hour


Psychologist Jan Haaken and lawyer Mike Snedeker discuss recent events in Aurora, Colorado, Portland, Oregon, and mainstream news media. They consider the correlation between violence and social inequality, the likelihood that violence is committed by young men, the difficulty of balancing the need for psychological intervention with the prejudice against those with mental illnesses, the inadequacy of lone-psycho explanations for American gun violence, the misguidedness of censoring popular culture, the profits of arms and ammo manufacturers, the culture of fear that supports the prison-industrial complex, and the defensive omnipotence fostered by cultures of entitlement and threat.
