‘Mass Formation Psychosis’ Defines Psychology of Covid Hysteria

In a December 2 interview with Chris Martenson, Professor of Clinical Psychology Dr. Mattias Desmet — through his work connecting past historical episodes of what is called “Mass Formation” (aka Mass Psychosis) and current events – explains what he views as “mass formation” (ie, global delusion) regarding the psychology of the Covid hysteria.

Dr. Mattias Desmeta is a clinical psychologist at Ghent University in Belgium, with a double degree and also a Masters in Statistics. Dr. Chris Martenson, PhD (Duke), MBA (Cornell), is an economic researcher and futurist specializing in energy and resource depletion, and co-founder of PeakProsperity.com (along with Adam Taggart).

See the video featuring Professor Mattias Desmet and Chris Martenson, The Monster that Devours Its Own Children:

In the video Mattias tells us what can be done. “We must never resort to violence. We must be courageous and speak up. We must hold everyone with compassion. But most of all, we must speak up.”

Further articulated by Mattias in the video is how “Mass Formation” (aka Mass Psychosis) is playing out on a global scale regarding Covid to these four conditions that must first be met:

1.  The masses must feel alone and isolated.2.  Their lives must feel pointless and meaningless.3.  The masses then must experience constant free-floating anxiety4.  They must experience free-floating frustration and aggression.
(Note: Free-floating means that there is no discernible source for aggression or anxiety.) It should be self-evident that all four have been masterfully set into motion with the Great Panic of 2020.

According to Desmet: “The risks are as grave as they come. Unless a few brave and courageous people are willing to stand up and say. “I don’t agree!” history suggests that we will end up with a fully totalitarian outcome.”
“That is a dark path. It inevitably leads to mass casualties and atrocities. Eventually all totalitarian systems end in their own destruction.”

Desmet’s position: “It doesn’t have to be this way. We can do better. Let’s avoid a future of atrocities and the complete destruction of our way of life.”

“Unfortunately, those caught up in the Mass Formation event cannot see the larger or wider implications of their actions,” Desmet continued. “They are very much like a hypnotized person with their field of view narrowed down to a singular threat or risk they have been told is the one-and-only threat they must conquer. So all of their attention goes there. It focuses down. Nothing else matters. Eventually they transfer their anger and rage at that enemy – which is Covid today – upon a more relatable a nearby object. Perhaps their neighbor. Perhaps the unvaccinated. Perhaps immigrants who are stealing their jobs, or those who aren’t taking Climate Change seriously enough.”

“With that transference, the path has been laid to re-trod some of the most awful and inhumane periods of history. We’re there again and our own integrity demands that we do what we can to avoid going any further down that path.”

Just this week, an interview of Dr. Malone with Joe Rogan in which Malone picked up and used the term, mass formation psychosis, attributing the term to Mattias Desmet of the University of Ghent, caused a global surge in interest surrounding the topic.

Dr. Malone pointed to the hysteria that overtook Germany that lead to WWII. The mass hysteria swept across the country and handed leadership over to Hitler and his Nazis.

  1. There’s a lot of truth to this. The widespread fear, hopelessness, and willingness to transcend traditional moral bounds in order to avoid an invisible “existential threat” were all seen in the global warming hoax, too, but climate change is too slow-moving to sustain the panic. Opinion polls showed little increase in public fear of global warming or support for action to address it, despite billions of dollars spent every year on pro-alarmist propaganda for decades. The Covid pandemic showed how a more immediate public health threat can trigger the most risk averse among us, and they in turn can trample to rights of the more rational among us. The arrival of Omicron suggests that Covid, like global warming, is becoming a long-term phenomenon with ambiguous effects.
