AJP 43 | Mattias Desmet
— People are being hypnotised

In this episode Professor in Clinical Psychology at Ghent University in Belgium, Mattias Desmet, explains the phenomenon of Mass Formation. Desmet holds a Master's Degree in Statistics and after studying the public COVID-19 statistics, he realised that the mortality of the virus was highly exaggerated. Yet, when people pointed it out publicly, the narrative did not seem to become more balanced. He has studied totalitarianism and realised that the world was experiencing a Mass Formation, which is a condition where people are hypnotised and have a very narrow focus on just one problem. They go into a collective, totalitarian state of mind, and do not realise that they are losing everything. The group will also feel extreme anger towards those who do not go along with their narrative and almost religious rituals. Dr Robert W Malone MD was also referring to Desmet in his interview at the Joe Rogan podcast, where he was talking about “Mass Formation Psychosis”. Malone has also written about Mass Formation.
