Psychologist, therapist and host of the Scottish Liberty Podcast Antony Sammeroff joins me to discuss his presentation, The Psychology of Statism. Antony first explains how he came to hold his unconventional anarchistic views on government. He then talks about the psychological factors that prevent people from rationally and reflectively engaging in dialogue but rather lock them into their existing points of view. Finally, putting his therapists hat on, Antony talks about the role of resolving trauma in freeing ourselves to embrace a wider spectrum of ideas and becoming able to communicate more effectively with others.
