Prof. Mattias Desmet Explains The Mass Psychosis We Are Seeing Around Us

Summarized: People have a free-floating anxiety due to underlying problems in society, economy, family, etc. This anxiety produces pain within the person and they seek to rid themselves of it. Psychological manipulation through the media acts to attach this pain to some target (Covid, Trump, antivaxxers, conservatives, etc) and gives the victims an outlet of sorts. Once they have this target identified for them, it effectively becomes a war to defeat that target by any means necessary. They feel this will alleviate the mental anguish they are experiencing and they will resist all attempts to detach the target from the underlying anxiety so that they do not go back to the painful free-floating anxiety condition. This is why these people cannot be swayed by logic, reason, facts, or statistics.

There's a whinge in here that supports that notion.

There are still people complaining about the Trump years, oblivious to Biden Disaster.

All you need to do is identify the actual target.

It's our government.

People do crazy things when they’re afraid. A peaceful crowd of airport commuters can become a screaming mob that will callously trample children and old ladies when a bomb explodes.
People who preach egalitarianism quickly become selfish and homicidal when they perceive their neighbors to be a threat to their own lives.
This precise fear is what the media has been endlessly promoting with their Big Lie of the “Pandemic of the Unvaccinated.” Biden just gave voice to the incredulous and nonsensical emotional reasoning of this particular fear with his remarks that “we will protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated.” The flavor of a general declaring war was intentional. These people know how to divide us and they’re doing it as hard as they can.

Fully agreed. Any rational person without anxiety and fear of social isolation would do a quick calculation of the people with !covid! they know and how many of those were vaxxed on how many weren't and swiftly conclude the giant turd lie of the pandemic of the unvaxxed.

@Karloff Thanks for posting this video. It's really brilliant, giving a coherent explanation for a lot of the insanity we are seeing.

I think in the US at least, a great deal of the anger of the vaxxed is people who are in fact still angry and anxious about Trump, who represented a threat to the old corrupt order which benefitted themselves.

So they had all this anxiety which they could not exactly name, but now that they have the virus and the vaxx, they have an explanation and a way out.

And if you threaten the narrative which gives them this way out of their anxiety, they will hate you.

The actual anxiety wasn't initially caused by these issues, although those were used to amplify it and give it a name.

The real underlying reasons are specific to the individual, but I think they are due to the pressures of 21st century life. We've never had a life this easy, but what we see as conveniences are actually the sources of much of our stress. Social media has enthralled so many, and they are slaves to it and their global reputation. People care so much about what others think, they have to work hard to fit in. Get the right house, appliances, counter-tops and cabinets watch the right TV shows so they can discuss them with everyone else in the break room. Wear the right clothes, listen to the right celebrities, be popular. Acceptance is paramount. People will sacrifice so much of their individuality to attain this acceptance. They are afraid to expose it in fear that it will be rejected and they will not fit in, or be cast out. This conflict is difficult for people. They will put themselves in financial peril in order to attain their social standing, which causes more stress.

For most of my life, I viewed these types of behaviors as adolescent at best, and not only didn't care about adhering to them, but viewed those that did as somewhat inferior or worthy of pity. Ignore the media, politicians, and Hollywood, and you're immune to most of this conditioning. I never cared about acceptance, I just tried to be normal enough to not become a target for attack.

In the end, are you a collectivist, yearning to fit in and be part of the group? Or are you an individual who will go about things your own way?

This might explain why all the FBI agents look like clones, too:
