Deranged & desperate

Ron Suskind on his powerful and important new book "The Way of the World"。
Dr. Bryant Welsh on how the United States electorate has been rendered into a "State of Confusion," which is, not coincidentally, the title of his new book. Dr. Welsh graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School before receiving the Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is also a Research Associate graduate of the Washington Psychoanalytic Institute. Dr. Welsh has been a nationally-prominent psychologist for thirty years and established the American Psychological Association Practice Directorate serving as its first executive director. In August of 2005, Dr. Welch was awarded the American Psychological Association's Presidential Citation for his "seminal and unique contribution to professional psychological practice." His new book is State of Confusion: Political Manipulation and the Assault on the American Mind. In this book, Dr. Welch makes the case that right-wing political operatives and many religious leaders, using sophisticated forms of political manipulation, have generated and exploited fear and confusion in the minds of countless Americans, bringing this country to the brink of a national political insanity. This makes it nearly impossible to recognize and deal with reality, which produced to the debacle in Iraq and renders us paralyzed in addressing crucial problems.
