Give Peace a Chance: Don't Believe the War Profiteers War profiteers prey on our core psychological concerns with two goals in mind. First, they aim to create an American public that either embraces or at least accepts an endless war mentality. Second, they use these "mind games" to marginalize and disempower anti-war voices. We need to inoculate ourselves against their manipulative tactics, and then help others to do the same.

Is the American Psychological Association Addicted to Militarism and War? Wedo everyone a disservice when we fail to question and challenge a system and a culture that so readily place them and others in harm's way. It is time for the APA and its members to decide whether the world's largest psychological association is ready to overcome its "addiction" and help lead us forward.

Stoking Fear: We Must Remember How the Iraq War Was Sold History shows that fearmongering has long been a standard tactic used to rally public support and acquiescence for military interventions that are both unwarranted and unwise.

In a World of Corporate-Backed Politicians, Beware the Sounds of Sirens For many Americans hoping to help steer our beleaguered country toward greater justice and equality, a pair of modern-day--albeit figurative--Sirens are seemingly always poised to draw us off course. Indeed, their beguiling appeals and promises will only grow louder and more persistent as we move ever closer to Election Day 2020.

Get Ready for These Political Mind Games in 2019 Our core concerns--about vulnerability, injustice, distrust, superiority, and helplessness--are soft targets for manipulation by today's plutocrats. There are twenty "political mind games" we should watch out for in the year ahead. Progress toward greater democracy will depend upon recognizing and resisting them.

A Tale of Two Caravans It makes sense that Donald Trump and other GOP leaders are worried about an approaching caravan. But it's not the one you're probably thinking of.

Another Crossroads for the APA Leaders of the American Psychological Association (APA) will meet next month in San Francisco at the annual convention. There they will hold two critical votes, both with important ramifications for whether the APA will again lose its way and stumble badly when next confronted with the stark choice between do-no-harm ethics on the one hand and expediency and careerism on the other.

"They're Different from Us": The Profiteers of Prejudice Today's greed-driven plutocrats know that solidarity with the disadvantaged and mistreated is jeopardized whenever differences like race, gender, and religion are emphasized and exaggerated. That's why they highlight these differences while downplaying similarities in the concerns and aspirations we all share.

Authoritarians, Plutocrats, and the Fight for Racial Justice Overt racism isn't the sole engine that drives opposition to Black Lives Matter and the NFL player protests. Like every social movement, these efforts represent a threat to those who benefit most from the status quo. Atop that list are Trump himself and other tremendously wealthy Americans who choose to exploit their political power in order to advance selfish interests at the expense of the greater good.

The APA Speaks Out Against Gina Haspel The journey to redemption is long and often tempest-tossed. But the American Psychological Association (APA) took another noteworthy step last week when CEO Arthur Evans Jr. sent a letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee, expressing concern over President Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel as director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

The DCCC's Mind Games and the Ballad of Roy Moore It's bad enough that the business-friendly Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and other establishment Democrats are aggressively tipping the scales in favor of their hand-picked "moderate" candidates in primary contests around the country. It's even worse that they've now taken to defending this strategy by comparing unwelcome progressives to the likes of Roy Moore.

The 1%'s Mind Games: Psychology Gone Bad While millions of Americans grasp for lifelines amid the unforgiving currents of extreme inequality, multi-millionaires and billionaires comfortably ride the waves and add to their enormous wealth and power. Progress toward a more equal and decent society depends upon resisting and debunking the seductive propaganda of today's plutocratic snake-oil vendors.

POLITICAL MIND GAMES: How the 1% Manipulate Our Understanding of What's Happening, What's Right, and What's Possible Political Mind Games was written to help inoculate the public against the 1%'s self-serving appeals. When we expose and debunk their mind games, the 1%'s empty rhetoric loses its allure, their selfish motives are laid bare, and everyone can see clearly how a privileged few have fleeced and forsaken the country--and the people--that made their enormous wealth and power possible.

Fear, the NRA and Gun Industry's Deadliest Weapon The NRA and gun lobby aggressively push psychologically-potent appeals because they know nothing sells guns like fear -- including the fear of not having a gun.

The Sustaining Fires of Standing Rock: A Movement Grows Regardless of the Dakota Access Pipeline's final disposition in the federal courts, Energy Transfer Partners and its cronies have unleashed a counterforce that may well exceed their comprehension and control. While digging for dollars they've awakened a movement that combines a long-overdue commitment to addressing the trampled rights of Native Americans with a reinvigorated call for climate justice and environmental action.

The Predatory Presidency Predators in the wild aren't the only ones to use trickery, deception, and stealth as complements to brute force. To disguise the real impetus behind its recent executive orders, the Trump White House turns to sky-is-falling psychological mind games, warning us that these steps are necessary to protect the public from dire threats.

Bait and Switch: Psychology and Trump's Voter Fraud Tantrums To fully understand Trump's complaints about "illegal voters," we need to recognize that voter fraud and voter suppression are opposite sides of the same coin. By promoting beliefs about the former, the groundwork is laid for pursuing the latter. In this way, tales of unlawful voting have long been a pretext for obstructing the voting rights of U.S. citizens.
