This Video Will Make You Question What Is “Normal”

In this interview world-renowned physician Dr Gabor Mate is exposing the “myth of normal” – the idea that divides people into normal and abnormal with pathological traits.

According to Mate, there’s no clear distinction between the two. In reality, he says, there’s a continuum where mental distress, more or less, is present in all of us.

In the video below, Dr. Mate points out how mental distress and pathology are to a great extent a result of a materialist culture that “idealizes individualism and ignores our emotional needs”.
