Since undergoing what was misdiagnosed as a "psychiatric breakdown," and awakening to the dreamlike nature of reality, Paul has become a major-league wounded healer. A practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism, Paul is the author of The Madness of George Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis, and the new Wetiko: The Greatest Epidemic Sickness Known to Humanity. He will be publishing a follow-up to Wetiko in early 2013.
Wetiko goes straight to the heart of THE problem:
In the book Columbus and other Cannibals, indigenous author Jack D. Forbes lucidly explores a psychological disease that has been informing human self-destructive behavior that Native American people have known about for years. After reading his book, it was clear to me that he was describing the same psycho-spiritual disease of the soul that I wrote about in my book, The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of our Collective Psychosis. I introduce the idea that from the dawn of human history our species has fallen prey to a collective psychosis which I call malignant egophrenia. Speaking about this very same psychic epidemic, Forbes writes, “For several thousands of years human beings have suffered from a plague, a disease worse than leprosy, a sickness worse than malaria, a malady much more terrible than smallpox.” Indigenous people have been tracking the same ‘psychic’ virus that I call malignant egophrenia for many centuries and calling it ‘wetiko,’ a Cree term which refers to a diabolically wicked person or spirit who terrorizes others. Professor Forbes, who was one of the founders of the Native American movement during the early sixties, says, “Tragically, the history of the world for the past 2,000 years is, in great part, the story of the epidemiology of the wetiko disease.”
2nd hour: "Wise Old Man" Zan Overall recently picketed a fund-raiser for the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) carrying a big “ISRAEL DID 9/11!” sign.
The leader of the Jews For Peace was there. He had told me at another event that he had studied the question and could find “no evidence” that Israel was involved.
If I drop a contact lens on the rug I would not ask him to help me look for it.
If I dropped a bowling ball on the rug I don’t think he could find it.
