"When a Process of Mass Formation Emerges in a Society, It Becomes Easier to Control the People" Says PROFESSOR MATTIAS DESMET On the Pandemic
The two most valuable classes I ever had in school were several semesters of logic in college and an elective in high school called “Mass Hysteria.” The purpose of the class was to examine the tactics of tyrants as they primed populations for totalitarianism. This was back in the mid-90s when useful things were taught and pronouns weren’t questioned.
The class answered the question of how Hitler rose to power, among other dark points in world history. I’ve thought of this class quite a bit in the past two years as the world locked down under pandemic rules that seemed situated on questionable science and data.
How do you convince entire nations to relinquish their bodily autonomy, their rights, without ever firing a shot? Welcome to Mass Formation Psychosis, which I’d first heard of while interviewing Dr. Robert Malone, during which time he mentioned the phenomenon and its author, Mattias Desmet, a professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium with a master’s degree in statistics.
Professor Desmet joined me on on my radio program today to discuss the phenomenon, address its detractors, and detail ways to disrupt it. Here are two excerpts, the full interview follows below the clips. You’ll want to watch this.
