Mass Formation Hypnosis = Totalitarianism?
Mass formation psychosis leads to totalitarianism? I don’t believe it. Sometimes it may but not as a general rule. Belgian psychologist Mattias Desmet has just published a book on “The Psychology of Totalitarianism” that claims to link mass formation to mass hypnosis. Given what’s going on today, this could be hugely important. But it doesn’t pass my smell test.
