Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussion. This week, I wanted to bring on a guest who could provide insights into the riots that happened on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021. What have been the consequences, causes, and cures of this type of violence? I am honored to have on as my guest, Dr. Bandy X. Lee American Psychiatrist with her M.D. and M.Div who is the author of “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,” which is a compilation of 37 psychiatrists and mental health experts that assess the dangerousness of the president. She is also the author of a text on “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures.”
On this episode of Advent Next, she provides insight into how ethics inform her approach to medicine and her public participation. She also discusses insights from both her books on the milieu in which violence is created and factors that can either increase or reduce harm. Lastly, she discusses the challenges she has faced in speaking according to her conscience and where she derives her strength to move forward when facing opposition from within and without.
You can follow our guest today Dr. Bandy X. Lee, on Twitter @BandyXLee1 and I would highly recommend reading her book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,” “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” and her newest book “Profile of a Nation.”
