The Sanity Squad podcast tackles a particularly nasty form of psychological denial in our day and age--those who are trying to pretend that Hitler's "Jewish experiment" never happened. And, it can't reist discussing the psychopathology of the outgoing Secretary General who has brought the UN to new depths of dysfunction.

This week, join Siggy , Neo-neocon , Shrinkwrapped and myself as we take on the holocaust deniers and the chief pirate of the UN. Neither stands a chance against the analyses of the psychological Fab Four!

First, the Squad asks its listeners to imagine what it would be like choosing to live your entire life as a psychotic episode, as it discusses the out-of-touch-with-reality holocaust deniers and their homicidal sponsors in Iran-- the poster children of psychological denial and projection; then it switches the psychological spotlight to the soft-spoken psychopath who has calmly led the UN into unparralled corruption and some of the most depraved scandals of its existence; all without taking one iota of responsibility for his pivotal role in destroying whatever remains of the international body's credibility. Like all psychopaths, he externalizes all the blame on...guess who?
