The Chauncey Devega Show Ep. 381: America is Sick With Diabolical Amnesia and Evil Forgetting (March 2023)
“V” formerly known as Eve Ensler is an author, Tony Award-winner, playwright and activist. Her award-winning play The Vagina Monologues ran for more than 10 years and has been performed in more than 140 countries.
“V”s new book is Reckoning.
“V” warns that the United States is sick with a type of pathological amnesia that facilitates evil and cruelty. “V” also reflects on how we must use specific and correct moral language about sexism, white supremacy, misogyny, patriarchy, and other antihuman political values and movements if we want to vanquish them.
“V” and Chauncey also ponder why so many people remain in denial about the great and obvious disaster that is The Age of Trump and ascendant neofascism. They also dialogue about mental health, well-being, relationships, and finding peace in these troubled and challenging times.
On this episode of the podcast, Chauncey DeVega explains his late-night Twitter messages that recently went “viral” where he warned that the Republican-fascists and MAGAites actually won on Jan 6 and that the threat to American democracy is getting worse and in no way deterred or stopped despite how much the hope peddlers and wish-casters in the mainstream news media keep saying that it is.
