Last Show Recap

Evil, Lies, & the Human Psyche

Professor of creative writing at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Marjorie Sandor, talked about her latest work compiling stories from the deeply unsettling to the possibly supernatural and why we love tales that delve into our increasingly unstable sense of self, home, and planet. In the first hour, bestselling author Juan Enriquez discussed how man is in a different phase of evolution and the future of life on the planet is now in our hands.

Evil, Lies, & the Human Psyche

Show Archive
Date: Sunday - May 2, 2010
Host: George Noory
Guests: David Kupelian, Marla Martenson

David Kupelian, managing editor of WorldNetDaily, discussed how the human psyche is exploited by criminals, terrorists, politicians and marketers, as well as why some celebrities go haywire. The basic building block of evil is the lie or deception, which can be used to fuel genocide, he explained, citing how in Africa, the Hutus were told by their leaders that the Tutsis "were not human, they are cockroaches and snakes." And further, Radio Rwanda repeatedly broadcast that the Tutsis were about to attack the Hutus. "These two big lies opened the floodgates for all out genocide-- almost a million people were slashed with machetes and clubs," he said.

Victims are portrayed as a threat as well as dehumanized, and this is a common thread in all cases of genocide, he continued. Such big lies cause people to emotionally react, become upset and irrational. Hitler bragged that he "always kept the masses emotionalized," Kupelian noted. Politicians often tell lies, assuring voters with what they want to hear, and preying on people's tendency to want to believe, he added.

The mind is vulnerable to various kinds of manipulation. He spoke about cases of "Stockholm Syndrome" where a hostage begins sympathizing with their captors, like with Patty Hearst, as well as how fame has corrupted the minds of a number of celebrities, who are worshiped by their fans. Kupelian also suggested that antidepressants were being over-prescribed, pushed by pharmaceutical advertisements, and that many people had lost the ability to deal with their problems without taking a pill.

Matchmaking in LA

First hour guest, matchmaker Marla Martenson talked about her new memoir which deals with her work in the Los Angeles area, fixing up her clients, mainly older wealthy men, with younger, attractive women. She also offered first date tips (keep the conversation light) and noted that sometimes people need to work on themselves before they go out and seek a relationship.
