Desmet (smiling): And then Robert mentioned me in the Joe Rogan Show. And he added a term to the term ‘mass formation’ And that was very successful, I think.

(Laughter from all three)

Desmet: It made me famous around the world.

(Laughter from all three)

Malone: Or infamous.

(Laughter from all three)

Desmet: -Or infamous, yes.

(Laughter from all three)

Desmet: I doubted it a little bit.

Off camera a woman’s voice: The term, the term that he added was?


Desmet: -‘Psychosis.’ Psychosis. I always use the term ‘mass formation.’ Just referring, actually, simply to the formation of a mass or crowd in a society. And then Robert added the term ‘psychosis’. Which made it a little more sensational, I think, and made it spread around the world. But of course, at the same time, it may be added, well, from an ethical, pragmatic and an intellectual point of view, ah, it makes the term, ah, have a different meaning or a different connotation, it depends a bit. But it was a very good move, I believe, to make the theory famous around the world.

Comment by Peter Breggin: This is a very jovial conversation until Desmet discusses his reservations in the last paragraph.
