Hour 1: Stefan Verstappen
Joining the show during the first hour is writer, adventurer, and martial arts expert Stefan Verstappen, who will be discussing what he believes is the source of so much suffering in the world – a “parasitic” takeover of our minds and souls by psychopaths. Likening what’s happening to the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Stefan is the author of Defense Against the Psychopath: A Brief Introduction to Human Predators. In addition, he’s the creator of the viral video documentary titled Defense against the Psychopath.
Stefan has researched dozens of species of parasite that literally take over the host’s brain. In our case, parasitic institutions have literally taken over the minds of most people through media and education. He cites the Common Core math solutions as an example.
Is there a difference between a sociopath and a psychopath? Stefan has read every version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and has concluded the difference is semantics. Originally one was used to designate career criminals and the other to describe adjusted, or professional, psychopaths. He also believes the difference is in I.Q., “stupid” psychos commit petty crimes whereas “smart” psychos commit massive frauds.
Verstappen’s documentary, based on the first chapter of his book The Art of Urban Survival, is a how-to instructional video that explains the types, characteristics, and modus operandi of the most ruthless human predators on our planet. Offered as a defense strategy for personal safety, the video also shows the logical consequences these people would have on society as a whole. It shows psychopaths as not just the insane serial killers seen in movies, but that your boss, your church leader, and even your political leader could be a malevolent and heartless predator.
In addition, when Stefan was researching history for his first book, The Thirty Six Stategies of Ancient China, he began to see a similar pattern common to history’s leaders, a pattern of ruthless self-interest that resulted in the deaths of countless billions of people and the destruction of dozens of civilizations.
Stefan Verstappen likens what is happening in society today to the Invasion of the Body Snatchers – a real battle for the entire planet and our collective souls.
Tonight, Verstappen will discuss how he came to his conclusions, what he foresees for the future, and if there are any solutions to the “terminal cancer” that has infected our civilization.
Stefan Verstappen is a graduate of a three-year Outward Bound program and was soloing in Algonquin by age fifteen, traveled through Europe alone the next year, and was teaching wilderness survival by age nineteen. He later worked as head instructor for St. John Ambulance in Brampton, Ontario, and won two civic awards for his participation in mock disaster drills. In addition, he was also the first aid and CPR instructor at the OPP Police College.
Stefan is one of the first westerners to live and study martial arts in China with several renowned Kung Fu teachers, from Hill Tribe Shamans of the Golden Triangle, to back alley street fighters in the concrete canyons of Hong Kong. His adventures have been featured on Taiwan TV, radio interviews, and newspaper and magazine articles.

Hour 2: John J. Higgins, Esq.
Author, former state-wide prosecutor, and attorney John J. Higgins, Esq. joins Amerika Now during the second hour to talk about the polarization that is running rampant in our political system as well as our society.
According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, America has never been more polarized. From public opinion to politics, liberals and conservatives have never been so widely separate. Both sides prefer to associate with and live near fellow partisans, creating a divided society where liberals and conservatives increasingly keep apart. Unfortunately, when such polarization occurs, moderate voices often lose power and influence.
According to Pew Research Center’s website (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/06/12/7-things-to-know-about-polarization-in-america/), “Political polarization is the defining feature of early 21st century American politics, both among the public and elected officials. As part of a year-long study of polarization, the Pew Research Center has conducted the largest political survey in its history – a poll of more than 10,000 adults between January and March of this year. It finds that Republicans and Democrats are further apart ideologically than at any point in recent history. Growing numbers of Republicans and Democrats express highly negative views of the opposing party. And to a considerable degree, polarization is reflected in the personal lives and lifestyles of those on both the right and left.”
John will also talk about the “crass, crude, and rude behavior of many politicians.” As a former special prosecutor, he’ll comment on the level of corruption occurring.
John J. Higgins, Esq., is an attorney and former statewide prosecutor who has had a multi-faceted career and life. He has worked on farms, performed firearm repairs, and refinished and sold antiques, all before he finished high school. In between pursuing his college studies, he supervised industrial finishing operations and assisted in developing a powder coating system. After college, he worked full time and attended law school at night. He also filmed rock stars and celebrities for public service announcements and produced and emceed a play that performed before audiences that totaled over 170,000.
In his career as an attorney, he researched and wrote policy papers for governmental committees, drafted legislation, and revised statutes.
