In this episode we discuss the concrete thinking used by anti-vaccine activists, and how the damage done might apply to other spheres as well. Since Tom Hinueber is involved, we also discuss free will and choice (particularly in the realms of depression and mental illness), cognitive behavior therapy and distortions of thinking, common-enemy vs. common-humanity identity politics, what antivaxxers get RIGHT about our healthcare system, the discrete nature of consciousness, and much more.
