formation psychosis, a population enters a hypnotic-type
trance that makes them willing to sacrifice anything,
including their lives and their freedom. That's what's
happening right now
are four key conditions that must be in place for mass
formation psychosis to occur: Lack of societal bonding,
experiencing life as meaningless and senseless, widespread
free-floating anxiety/free-floating discontent, and
these four conditions are widespread, mass formation can
occur, which allows for totalitarianism to rise and thrive
strategy to break mass formation and prevent totalitarianism
is to speak out against it. We also need to give those
hypnotized a greater fear to replace the fear of the virus
with, namely the fear of totalitarianism and the loss of
their and their children's lives, livelihoods and freedoms
that go along with it
Dissenters need to join together, thereby giving
fence-sitters who are not yet fully hypnotized an
alternative to going along with the totalitarians

statistician, believes explains the absurd and irrational behavior
we're now seeing worldwide with regard to the COVID 'pandemic' and its

population into psychosis.
psychosis is the explanation for how the Germans accepted the
atrocities by the Nazi party in the 1930s, and it's the explanation
for why so many around the world support medical apartheid and the
destruction of the unvaccinated now.
Billions of People are
Affected by this and They don't Realize it
- Dr. Robert Malone 2021
It's so irrational and inhumane, many have wondered how we got here.
As it turns out, the
psychology of totalitarianism has been studied for decades, and the
whole thing is in fact explainable as a psychiatric phenomenon that
arises when certain conditions exist in a society.
The Four Base
Conditions for ‘Mass Formation'
The four central conditions that need to exist in order for mass
formation psychosis to take root are:
Lack of social
Social isolation was a widespread problem long
before the 'pandemic'. In one survey, 25% of respondents said
they didn't have a single close friend.
lockdowns also contributed and worsened already existing
We were all told that any contact with others,
including members of our own family, could be a death
Seeing life as meaningless, purposelessness and senseless,
and/or being faced with persistent circumstances that don't
make rational sense
Desmet cites research showing that half of all
adults feel their jobs are completely meaningless, providing
no value to either themselves or others.
In another poll, done in 2012, 63% of respondents said they
were "sleepwalking" through their workdays, putting no
passion into their work whatsoever.
So, condition No.
2 for mass formation hypnosis was also fulfilled, even
before the 'pandemic' hit.
Events that occurred in late 2019 and early 2020, such as
the many questions surrounding the presidential election and
the initial COVID lockdowns, added fuel to the widespread
confusion and uncertainty, resulting in the next condition:
free-floating anxiety and free-floating discontent
Free-floating anxiety refers to anxiety that has no apparent
or distinct cause.
Judging by the
popularity of antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs,
condition No. 3 was also fulfilled long before the
but additional fuel was piled on just before the 'pandemic'.
Many felt, and still feel, that "things just aren't right."
Through 2020, it
became increasingly apparent to many that most if not all of
the systems we depend on are broken, and likely broken
beyond repair, including our medical system, our voting
system and our judicial system.
free-floating frustration and aggression
This tends to
naturally follow the previous three. Here, again, the
frustration and aggression have no discernible cause.
Formation Allows Totalitarianism to Rise
these four conditions are fulfilled by a large enough portion
of society, they are ripe for the picking to convert to a psychosis,
being totally out of touch with reality, which in turn leads to the
rise of totalitarianism.
As explained by Malone,
when the 'pandemic' broke out, people around the world became obsessed
with one thing:
People everywhere thought about, read about and talked about the
virus almost exclusively to everything else.
This singular focus, this
obsession, having the base conditions for mass formation already
firmly in place, allowed for large portions of the population to
enter into a hypnotic-like state.
In that hypnotic-like state (it's very similar to conventional
hypnotism but with minor differences),
people lose their ability to
have rational thought and judgment...
As noted by Malone, there is evidence that suggests at least parts
of this psychological operation were done intentionally by,
"some entity that has
financial benefit or power to gain from doing this, which gets
to the point of global totalitarianism"...
Now, once a large portion
of a society is hyper-focused on and fused in their joint discontent
and anxiety, all a leader or leaders need to do to convince many
that totalitarian control and loss of their freedom is best for them
Present a story
in which the cause of the anxiety is identified, and then,
Offer a strategy
for neutralizing that cause
By accepting and participating in whatever that strategy is, people
with free-floating anxiety feel equipped with the means to control
their anxiety and avoid panic.
They also feel a strong
bond with others, because they've all identified the same nemesis.
As explained by Desmet in the
Peak Prosperity interview below:
"Because many people
participate in the same strategy to deal with the object of
anxiety, a new kind of social bond emerges a new kind of
So, people feel connected again in a new way. And
that's actually the most crucial thing.
If you look at the corona crisis and listen to the mainstream
narrative, you will hear that everything is about 'solidarity.'

You have to respect

you show no solidarity.
That's the most crucial thing, always,

is utterly absurd...

All the frustration and
aggression can be directed at an object.
And that object is the

participate in the mass formation...
So, you have this very strange situation where people start from
a very negative and divisive mental state; [they have a] lack of
social bond, lack of meaning-making, free floating anxiety and a
lot of frustration and aggression.
They switch from this very highly aversive mental state to a
symptomatic positive state where they feel connected.

enemy is anyone who is not spellbound.
The dissenters are the

Mass formation psychosis is a very dangerous condition, both for
those under its spell and those who aren't, because the 'mental

voluntarily killing their own families and themselves, if told it's
for the greater good.
