The Power of Addiction and The Addiction of Power: Gabor Maté at TEDxRio+20 (Video 20min)

Canadian physician Gabor Maté is a specialist in terminal illnesses, chemical dependents, and HIV positive patients. Dr. Maté is a renowned author of books and columnist known for his knowledge about attention deficit disorder, stress, chronic illness and parental relations.

 

His theme at TEDxRio+20 was addiction -- from drugs to power.

 

From the lack of love to the desire to escape oneself, from susceptibility of the being to interior power -- nothing escapes.

... and a cure for the addictions:
