Why You Have to Speak Your Truth, No Matter How Unpopular It Is

What are the real-world consequences of trying to keep people in the closet, in terms of their sexuality, politics or lifestyle? What really happens when you try to repress your own opinions, your authentic identity? According to Dave Rubin, repression creates precisely the shadowy monsters that it pretends to protect us from. On this episode of Conversations with Tom, author Dave Rubin and Tom Bilyeu discuss the nature of identity and freedom, and talk about how we might do better as parents, citizens and individuals.
