The Psychology of Lockdown Series #2: Magical Thinking

Welcome to the second of our 15 part series concerning the Psychology of Lockdown. Join host Doug McKenty as he discusses how and why so many cannot hear alternative perspectives concerning ongoing lockdown measures ostensibly to protect against the spread of Covid-19 with the Executive Director of The Line International, George Roche. Listen as we continue to understand the psychology of cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias that causes so many to defer to the opinions of the corporate/government narrative and refuse to even listen to those who question the utility of mask-wearing, social distancing, business closures and other authoritarian measures despite their obvious failures. In this episode, we focus on the concept of magical thinking that is characteristic of those who continue to believe a reality long after the facts merit a change in perspective.
