Steven Hassan: ‘January 6: Two Years After the Violent Coup Attempt’

By January 8, 2023 No Comments

Cult expert Steven Hassan, author of The Cult of Trump, Joined us to examine developments since the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, and discuss what we can do to stop those with wealth and influence, both here and overseas, who wish to propel the world into authoritarian darkness.

The U.S. government is in a lot of trouble: 121 Republican politicians were complicit in trying to stop the transfer of power to President Joe Biden, the legitimate winner of the 2020 election. The Department of Justice has a special prosecutor looking into charges against Trump, but the public remains largely ignorant of what a psyop is (think of QAnon), what undue influence is (brainwashing), and what we can do going forward to stop the plans of those with wealth and influence who wish to destroy the United States and propel the world into authoritarian darkness.

Many people are now waking up to the reality that they were, in fact, believers in The Cult of Trump. However, the media has largely censored the information in my book, while groups including Vladimir Putin, The Family, Opus Dei, the New Apostolic Reformation, Benjamin Netanyahu, and others have worked to undermine the rule of law, overthrow established law and legal precedent like Roe v. Wade, and further tear down the separation of church and state.

Steven Hassan, Ph.D. is a mental health professional who specializes in helping people to recover from mind control as well as helping loved ones to exit without coercion. He has been helping people leave destructive relationships and organizations since 1976 after he was rescued from the infamous cult, the Moonies. Hassan directs the Freedom of Mind Resource Center, a counseling and publishing organization outside of Boston, teaches at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and recently received his doctorate from Fielding University. He is the author of The Cult of TrumpCombating Cult Mind ControlReleasing the Bondsand Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults and Beliefs.
