How Does Joker Relate to Incels, Boy Crisis and Mental Illness?
October 15, 2019
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
The Joker movie provides an entree into today's discussion of Incels (Involuntarily Celibate), the boy crisis and mental illness, with guest, Warren Farrell, PhD. What do these concepts have to do with each other? The answer is not as far-fetched as you might think. Dr. Farrell is the author of a new book entitled, The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It. The Joker (played by Joaquin Phoenix in an Oscar-worthy performance) is the embodiment of these problems and illustrates how painful they are and what the potential consequences are in an uncaring society. You may be wondering why Dr. Carole, a foremost anti-media violence activist, is recommending that you go see The Joker, which some have complained is too violent. She begins the show by describing how its birds eye view into the mind of a man ostracized by society is more important than whatever non-gratuitous violence there is. Indeed, society needs more compassion towards all of these issues.
