American violence, Damaging paranoia, 'Fiscal Cliff' fail

­On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby talks to clinical psychiatrist Dr. James Gilligan about the root causes behind the epidemic of violence in America. She then talks to RT Producer Rachel Kurzius about the term 'conspiracy theory,' and how damaging it is to present alternative theories without evidence. BTS wraps up the show with a look at the hysteria of the 'fiscal cliff' and how it was a distraction from the under-reported stories of FBI spying on the Occupy movement and the failure to pass the Violence Against Women Act.
