The Dangerous State of the World and the Need for Fit Leadership

PRESS CLUB BALLROOM - Tuesday, 19 March, 12:45pm
The Dangers as Mental Health Experts Predicted Three Years Ago are Unfolding Before Us
As Exemplified in the New Zealand Attacks and with North Korea
Top Experts from many academic disciplines come together for the first time at this urgent time in world history

We’ve never been in this situation before—in our lifetimes or in the history of the nation or the world—where we are in such great danger because of the questionable mental instability of the President. His psychological dangerousness, as mental health professionals have warned, have translated into social, cultural, and geopolitical dangerousness, according to the exact time course that they predicted. We are thus holding a conference event like never before, with the nation’s top experts from multiple fields: mental health, law, history, political science, economics, social psychology, philosophy, nuclear science, and climate science. These experts will be coming together in exceptional ways to share their knowledge with the public. Clear analysis of a situation is the first step toward finding an informed and effective solution.

The technology and the extensive war-making powers that are available to our president, in his unstable state, make this perhaps one of the most dangerous moments in the history of our nation and the world. Just when a correct appraisal is most urgent, expert voices are all but lacking in public discourse. Sponsored by the group that warned the public through a bestselling public-service book, we are now advocating for regular institution of fitness-for-duty exams. Meanwhile, we have to join forces to figure out what we can do with the current situation, since no one field can contain it now.

Media are welcome and will have special opportunity to interview the organizer, Dr. Bandy Lee, the Panelists, and Special Guests. The Conference also marks the launch day for the second edition of the New York Times bestseller THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP with the first edition already having sold more than a million copies. Complimentary copies of the second edition being released this day at the Conference will be available to media.
