Dishonesty is at the heart of what ails America. From our relationships to our economic system, politics and government, lying is so commonplace that we often fail to notice it. It's an insidious disease with hidden consequences that can only be cured by a new approach to life, says Brad Blanton Ph.D., founder of the “Radical Honesty” movement.
Radical Honesty is telling the sometimes painful but freeing truth to others while staying committed to the relationship as an instrument of mutual clarification. It's the way to create true trust and intimacy and build communities that can enact real change, says Brad, a psychotherapist, bestselling author, and veteran social activist now in his sixth decade of rabble rousing.
Radical Honesty can also help people overcome addictions and other harmful habits and behaviors. “It’s critical to your own health and well-being that you be radically honest,” Brad says.
Brad's compelling life story is now out in his new autobiography, Some New Kind of Trailer Trash. In this first volume covering the first half of his life, he gives an unflinching account of his childhood and the upbringing that made him one of America's most celebrated rebels and a philosophical father of the Occupy movement. Funny, irreverent, sometimes profane and always controversial, Brad has been featured across major media including on 20/20, Dateline, CNN, Montel Williams, All Things Considered and Fox Television Morning Show. He is now touring 20 U.S. cities in four months, helping organize Occupy protests, getting arrested, and having a blast promoting Radical Honesty as the path to changing the world.
