Dr. McDonald has been an outspoken critic of the totalitarian types of measures taken at the federal, state, and local levels in response to the Chinese coronavirus.

Beyond just talking about the pandemic, Brent and Mark discuss the idea of what happens when humans live in a perpetual state of fear, versus only a momentary fight-or-flight response mode. They also discuss the open expression of hatred that is so prevalent in America today

Join the two as they engage in a conversation that includes references from Hobbes, to Freud, to Chomsky. The conversation is thought-provoking and offers glimmers of hope from Dr. McDonald.
