Curing Western Schizophrenia


When observing the many "double binds" and "illusions of choice" that characterize our modern Narrative Matrix, often leading people to box their identities within the narrow confines of Left vs. Right, “vaxxed” and “unvaxxed,” Capitalism and Communism, or any number of binds churned out by mainstream media, one can’t help but feel as though much of what we see and hear is a “game” not unlike the ones studied by Dr. R.D. Laing, Gregory Bateson, and others down in Palo Alto, California.

In this Rising Tide Foundation dialogue, we explore the both captivating and shocking relationship between the manipulation of “group dynamics” pioneered by the Tavistock Clinic, R.D. Laing’s research into schizophrenia, and its strange relationship to the many “games” studied by the military think tank, The Rand Corporation.
