About Hector Garcia

Me and My Mission

Hello everyone! I'm Dr. Hector Garcia, a clinical psychologist, researcher, book author, speaker, and a TED talks alumni. My work, including my two books--Alpha God: The Psychology of Religious Violence and Oppression, and Sex, Power and Partisanship: How Evolutionary Science Makes Sense of Our Political Divide--has focused on using the evolutionary sciences to help us gain a deeper understanding of the human condition.

We humans are remarkable. With our outsized brains we have ingeniously managed to completely transform our world. However, we are still primates with a brain designed for the Stone Age, and this mismatch underlies so much of the humanity's social problems today. Violence. Oppression. Superstition. Ignorance. Division. And all the human sufferings these bring. 

Much of our instincts are unconscious. And those in power often very well understand our instincts, and use them to manipulate us. My goal is to help the public gain insight into the instincts that drive us, so that we may know when they're being manipulated, and decide which of them continue to serve us, and which of them should be left behind in the Stone Age. In doing so we are able to make more rational and humane choices. In doing so, we gain freedom. To help us get there I am willing to have difficult conversations about things like religion, politics, and sex (all that we're told not to talk about in polite company). On the front lines. Because the consequences of not understanding, are far worse than the discomfort of knowing. 

Why Patreon?

Currently I work as a full time clinician and I'm raising two small kids as a single dad. My book writing, my speaking, and video producing have all been in my so-called "free time". The mission above is a vocation, a calling. I am absolutely driven to contribute my insights to the world. We are now at a time in our history in which critical thinking is more urgent than ever. And I have come to learn just how effective, and efficient Youtube can be as a means of reaching people quickly.

But producing content is costly and incredibly time consuming. Your contributions allow me to not only directly covers expenses like cameras, lighting, editing software, travel for speaking engagements, but also free my time by paying video editors, and others with technical skills that I don't possess, to help me get out content in a timely fashion. Right when news and pertinent political events are happening. I want to fight for you. I simply cannot do this without you by my side. When you pledge, you give me the time and resources I need to contribute. When you pledge we create knowledge together. When you pledge my mission becomes ours.

THANK YOU to anyone willing to support me and my channel. I am completely humbled by your generosity. I am completely inspired by your commitment to the cause. I am deeply honored to represent you. You are amazing human beings! Thank you!
