Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


Walking Through an Imbalanced World w/ Brie Loskota, USC Director of CRCC - S4E2

Brie Loskota, from the University of Southern California's Center for Religion and Civic Culture, explains 'capacity building' and how it empowers young leaders to advocate for themselves, for their communities, and for community peace building.

Brie is a writer widely published and interviewed, with significant roles in many notable religious, public and governmental institutions, and she is the Director of the Safe Communities Institute at USC.

Her work includes studying how people use their beliefs to make decisions. Commenting on the productivity of the political environment, Brie addresses how perfectionism has prevented progress. And that a lack of empathy for the "other" or cancellation of someone who doesn't meet personal ideals is a narcissistic outlook.

Stay tuned, Before You Go: Rachel talks about Brie's quote "The biggest force against us is our own indifference". And she also explains 'compassion fatigue' and becoming overwhelmed by the feeling that you are unable to make a difference.

More on the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture:
This department studies, documents, and helps communities understand the changes that shape religious cultures in Southern California and across the globe. Their goal is to engage scholars and build inclusive communities.
