Richard speaks with a Harvard Medical School professor who warns America is at a crossroads, and its future success or decline will depend on whether its citizens are sufficiently informed about what is driving the current conflicts in society. As a psychoanalyst, he has grown increasingly convinced that Americans— especially those on the Progressive left—are succumbing to neuroticobsessional and quasi-delusional modes of thought.
