I am deeply troubled by the concept of mass formation psychosis. It is a type of insanity. I do not know a single person who fits this description. But many are in an unshakeable dedication to demonstrable falsehoods. Reason and facts have no impact. There must be another explanation. Perhaps it lies in our fundamental human need to belong.

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.
