Yes, this Dr. Malone, now the self-appointed champion of free speech, is the same Dr. Malone who is suing the Breggins for $25 million to try to stop them from publicly criticizing his ideology or political conduct and the same Dr. Malone who has been trying to muzzle many others in the health freedom movement. ~ View on Twitter

The author of the idea calls it mass formation and mass hypnosis. Others have added mass psychosis. He began promoting the concept in Europe to many enthusiastic media, intellectuals, scientists, and physicians. Then it took off in America, where “mass hypnosis” has become a buzzword among critics of COVID-19 policies and practices.
The synonymous concepts of mass formation, mass hypnosis, and mass psychosis have an obvious damaging impact on the international health freedom movement and on the cause of liberty everywhere. These concepts take our eyes off the totalitarian global predators who are taking over and exploiting humanity. They restrain us from charging these predators with criminal conspiracy if we win the battle with them. The pernicious effects of the Desmet/Malone ideology came fully into light with the recent publication of Desmet’s The Psychology of Totalitarianism and Malone’s continuing efforts in support of mass psychosis.
Now the author of the concept, European psychoanalyst Mattias Desmet, has written a book, The Psychology of Totalitarianism. I’m a psychiatrist and, like Desmet, I’m a psychotherapist; but early in my career, I rejected joining one of Freud’s psychoanalytic institutes for special training. I did that for many reasons...

We have already published a lengthy, in-depth analysis1 of Mattias Desmet’s book The Psychology of Totalitarianism. Desmet proposes that a large segment of the population suffers from self-induced mass transformations, otherwise known as mass hypnosis, and popularized as “mass psychosis” by Robert Malone, MD. Whether Desmet or Malone consciously intended it, their ideology has seriously harmful effects similar to a psyops — a psychological operation — aimed at paralyzing the health freedom movement and freedom movements worldwide.
Many thoughtful people who listened to him felt, at long last, they had a label to put on their fellow citizens who were acting zombie-like, soulless, and compliant in response to draconian pandemic measures and all the lies they were being told. Some of the most dedicated reformers in the truth-in-science and freedom movement embraced his ideas. To many, it was a relief to be able to label it — mass formation or mass hypnosis — and to think that there was good science or psychology to bolster the diagnosis.
The strategy for undermining the people and ignoring the perpetrators is twofold... READ MORE

The question is, “Who should we blame for the current degradation of constitutional democracies worldwide and the associated vast losses of freedom?” Mass formation or mass psychosis theory says we must blame the people themselves who allegedly yearn for totalitarianism under the spell of mass formation hypnosis or mass psychosis. We believe, instead, that we must hold responsible ⏤ the global totalitarian governance that authoritarian individuals and institutions are inflicting on us.... READ MORE

Mattias Desmet, the psychotherapist, and professor of psychology whom we have criticized as a leading apologist for political mass murderers, actually knew that one of his own patients was an unrecognized mass murderer and then let him go without reporting him because he thought his psychotherapy had cured him for life. The predator had been killing people since he was 22 and was an older man, with a lifetime of multiple murders when he saw Desmet in therapy.... READ MORE

Dear Healthcare Freedom Fighters and all who are defending freedom in America, we are addressing this to all of you. But we especially want to respond to those who feel that Mattias Desmet and Robert Malone have helped you by describing mass psychosis which seems to explain what you yourselves are witnessing every day with your own eyes among your colleagues and other healthcare providers, and even among friends and family. Some have asked us for a better explanation of the rampant demoralization and loss of critical or independent thinking you see around you, and here it is.... READ MORE
Peter Breggin on Jerm Warfare with Jeremy Nell - 19 August 2022
"Mattias Desmet was also previously on Jerm Warfare with Jeremy Nell, in which he chatted about a concept called “mass formation” (or “mass hypnosis”). Mattias is a Professor Of Clinical Psychology at Ghent University in Belgium, and made a persuasive argument about why groups of people end up blindly complying and behaving like sheep.
Robert Malone popularised the phrase “mass formation” during his Joe Rogan appearance. The idea made sense to me too, as it explained the zombie-like behaviour around me since the start of the pseudopandemic.
However, Peter Breggin wrote a fascinating critique, which I read during a flight recently, and it had me scratching my head. It was like swallowing a red pill again..."READ MORE
