How can we understand the stories that motivate the murderous behavior of Islamic groups such as Isis, Al Queda, and Boko Haram? In my last podcast I suggested that such organizations have always been a part of the human condition and associated with many religions and nationalistic movements. Today I shall take another trip down memory lane and discuss the cancers that arose within Christianity and why Islam is now such fertile ground for the modern versions of these horrors. I will spend time discussing the rise of Hitler and the Nazis which also might cast light on why deadly cancerous ideas get organized and gain traction among large groups of people. Finally, I will begin to discuss some notions as to the factors that prevent these cancers from developing.
We will have live coverage of We The People Of Oklahoma 's rally against police brutality, Sheriff's Department and Tulsa Sheriff Glanz.#GLANZGOTTAGO Call in @ 323 870 4626
Like many others I am horrified by the lastest activities of those justifying the mass murder of innocents in the name of Islamic Jihad. As a psychologist I feel compelled to try and explain such behaviors believing that only understanding can lead to preventing both the atrocities themselves and fear driven, irrational responses to the perpetrators. I will employ the medical metaphor of cancer to structure my own story to explain the current wave of violence across the middle east and now "metasticizing" into Europe, the United States and other parts of the world. The philosopher Daniel Dennett suggests that many ideas and other products of human imagination refered to as "memes" can be compared to their biological counterparts, the genes. Genes that add to human adaptibility tend to spread in the population while those that fail to add to human health and adaptive success die off and disappear. Similarly ideas and inventions (Psychoanalysis and cell phones for example) expand rapidly to the degree that people who come in contact with them find them helpful in their adaptive struggles in life. Genes can become damaged and create cancers that spread and if not contained can destroy the lives of those so suffering. So too can ideas, stories and other inventions lead to the destruction of lives, whole societies, and I believe to civilization and our species itself. Just as cancer can be found all over the planet and in every historical epoch so to can cancerous stories be found. The Crusades, Nazism, malignant Communism,and hundreds of other political, religious and nationalistic movements prove that Islamic Jihad is not unique and is not merely a product of the Muslim faith but is to be understood as innate to human social functioning as is cancer to our biological existence.

The truth is that there's a place for proper English just as there is a place for slang and broken English as well. We have to know when and where to use all forms of verbal communication.
One thing that is for sure is that proper English is not a color thing.

This is a fact of life, which sometimes means, you have to implement with the ones that you love. Within a relationship, family, friends etc sometimes, distance works best. This should not be interpreted by you to mean that you won't and don't care. Putting space, even mental space, in between you and people, places and things can sometimes be the wisest course of action for maintaining your sanity and health...and the relationship!
Many people find this hard to do for a variety of reasons, however, I have found primarily, it’s because they feel guilty or a sense of duty that compels them to be up close and personal with whomever. Sometimes you need to love the ones that you love from a distance it’s as simply complex as that.
Join me Dr. Wendy Dearborne choice expert and life coach and Olivia Lashley expressions coach and artist as we talk about loving the ones that we love from a distance.
Topic for the show: What is really going on in America? Riots in Baltimore, Jade Helm and the entire establishment lining up to call everyone who questions the idea of big government a conspiracy theorist. All this and more on tonight's episode of We Are Not Cattle Radio.
