The pandemic of fear continues to grip our world long past the clinical effects of COVID-19. Many people cannot let go of the fear fueling the Mass Delusional Psychosis which has plagued millions since early 2020. In his latest book, Freedom from Fear, Dr. Mark McDonald applies his well-honed psychiatric acuity to the undiagnosed epidemic of fear addiction. Just like a drug, fear becomes an unhealthy mental and emotional dependency that must be broken. In Freedom from Fear, Dr. McDonald presents the essential twelve-step guide to personal and worldwide recovery.
This 4th edition updates the essays that examine the major Covid-19 issues – variants, vaccines, masks, social distancing, immune systems, treatments ― to determine what works and what doesn't in the current intensely political debate. The book is written by a family physician who pointedly differs on the threat posed by Covid-19 to the American people, then challenges current conventional wisdom on what should be done about the schools, the economy and public activity with reason, honesty and scientific facts.
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, LA-based psychiatrist Mark McDonald grew increasingly concerned by the negative mental health effects he witnessed among his patients—and Americans nationwide. The climate of fear being stoked by public health authorities and irresponsibly amplified by national media drove a hysterical overreaction from government in the form of draconian lockdowns and mask and vaccine mandates of questionable value. McDonald explains that America is actually suffering from two pandemics: a viral one and a psychological one, a “pandemic of fear”. McDonald diagnoses the country at large as suffering from a mass delusional psychosis.
