Pills, Pot, and the Nihilistic Psychosis Behind the July 4th Shooting with Dr. Naomi Wolf

In the wake of another tragic shooting event, this time in Highland Park, Illinois—just miles from Charlie's hometown in the suburbs of Chicago—Charlie walks through everything we know publicly about the shooter and exposes the deeper implications behind some of the seemingly small details the mainstream media is actively glossing over. He goes into his past and unpacks the dangerous levels of marijuana use that have reportedly plagued the perpetrator for years as well as the compounding effects that decades of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications seemingly had on his psyche and how it all could have contributed to the tragically end we saw on Monday. He's joined by Dr. Naomi Wolf, Author of the new book, 'The Bodies of Others,' to build out the ways substance-induced psychosis could have triggered such a violent tragedy and why we shouldn't expect this to be an isolated incident, given the societal damage COVID Lockdowns have had on the mental health of an entire, already-fragile, generation of American kids.

And throughout the length of this episode, Charlie references the concepts of nihilism and subjectivism, all while tying everything together with quotes and commentary from 'The Abolition of Man,' — the seminal work of author and Christian Apologist, C.S. Lewis — laying out what we as a society can learn from Lewis' words, arguably more applicable today than when they were written nearly nine decades ago.
