    IWTK J.D. Mitschke: Modern-Day Liberalism

    IWTK J.D. Mitschke: Modern-Day Liberalism

    J.D. Mitschke has an extensive educational background in the psychological sciences and is the author of "Modern-Day Liberalism: Exploring the Psychological Foundations of the Disorder."

    I'll start off with the disclaimer that J.D. is politically conservative (if you haven't picked that up from his book title) and has some political opinions that you may not agree or believe in-and that is perfectly okay. J.D. offers some opinions that may be considered controversial or even offensive to some people. All that can be asked is that you listen with an open mind and form your own opinions. Some of the things covered: The difference between liberalism now and in the past, why liberalism is considered a "mental disorder" to him, characteristics of extreme political views, hatred in politics (especially liberals), the difference between 'Conservatives' and 'Republicans', the background of the current liberal movement, how liberals are ruining the country, what Black Lives Matter could do to make a better impact and much more.
     
    You can find more on J.D. and links to his book and move by clicking on the 'GUESTS' section of www.iwanttoknowshow.com.

The Most Fun I've Had Being Interviewed

My experience with being a guest was nothing less than fantastic. And listening back to the interview, I could tell I felt really comfortable, and able to open up from the very beginning, and that all a testiment to how Greg runs his show. Really engaging host!
