E61: How to Identify a Sociopath Hiding Near You

Do you think you are losing your mind in our highly divisive society today? Do you think there is something wrong with you because you don’t fit into the social norm? Do you not believe in the fight and battles of the political left and right? You are not alone. I have been there and thought there was something wrong with me as well.

Today, Dr. Lawrence Woodburn and I discuss the sociopathic mind. We also dive into how and why people with this affliction are in a great deal of the positions of power in this country. Most importantly, once you recognize what they are doing and why they act the way they do, you can move on with your life and focus on important things.
