‘Mass Formation Psychosis’
Something bizarre and troubling is occurring in America and around the world. It’s weird. It’s illogical, irrational, dangerous thinking, and on a mass scale—and all about the same thing. And it is proof of something Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry has emphasized for decades.
A good example of this emerged in a leading newspaper in Denmark. In January, its staff openly and publicly apologized to its readers: “For almost two years, we—the press and the population—have been almost hypnotically preoccupied with the authorities’ daily coronavirus figures. … We failed.” They admitted that the government inflated coronavirus hospitalization numbers by 27 percent simply by including everyone who tested positive, even if the test was inaccurate and even if the person had no symptoms and was there due to a car accident, for example. Yet as the paper openly admitted, even though narratives like these were blatantly illogical, the press barely questioned it!
Why do millions of people all think the wrong thing about the same thing at the same time?
More and more people are becoming aware enough, confident enough and upset enough to recognize they have believed a very, very, very big lie.
Maybe you can recognize the hypnotic preoccupation that so many people have had in relation to covid-19 tyranny. But did this powerful force come out of nowhere? Is it blind and random? Does it only mislead people when it comes to a novel coronavirus and public health policy?
That same force has already warped people’s thinking by the millions on everything from health to voting to race to the environment to freedom to religion to parenting to sex to gender identity to the purpose of life to the very definition of right and wrong.
That same force has already impacted your thinking. You already believe some of its big lies.
“Our government is out of control on this,” one man said on a recent podcast. “And they are lawless. They completely disregard bioethics. They completely disregard the federal common rule. They have broken all the rules that I know of, that I’ve been trained [in] for years and years and years.” Yet hundreds of millions of people are submitting to this dangerous lawlessness, he said, because they are experiencing “mass formation psychosis.”
Perhaps you’ve never heard of this phrase, but it’s an attempt to describe a phenomenon that is all around you.
The man who brought this phrase into the public consciousness is not only vaccinated, not only a doctor, and not only a virologist, but a career immunologist who is one of the main architects of mrna technology itself. His name is Robert Malone.
Malone helped make the major breakthrough in mrna study in 1988 that laid the foundation for the mrna technology used in millions of covid-19 vaccine shots. His name is on the patents. He has spent the last 35 years or so studying and working at or with the University of California, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, the University of Maryland, Kennesaw State University, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, EpiVax, Atheric Pharmaceutical, Alchem Laboratories and the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.
Three covid-19 vaccines are available in the United States. All use genetic manipulation of either mrna (Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna) or double-stranded dna (Johnson & Johnson). Malone isn’t the final word on the subject, but it is obviously wise to hear what one of the main inventors of genetic vaccination has to say.
“My name is Robert Malone,” he said in one video. “I’m a physician and a scientist. But more importantly, I’m a father and a grandfather.” He then warned in unmistakable terms that injecting viral genes into children yields spike proteins that can permanently, irreparably damage their brains, nerves, hearts, blood vessels, reproductive systems and immune systems. He warned, “This novel technology has not been adequately tested.”
But that is not the worst of what he’s warning about. Far worse is “mass formation psychosis.”
The Trumpet calls it will worship.
Malone’s video and other statements criticizing the vaccines and government coercion and mandates attracted a lot of hostile attention from the political, medical and media elites. Despite his credentials, they do not want you to hear what one of the main inventors of genetic vaccination has to say. They have gone all-in on pressuring people to inject viral genes into themselves and their children, and they are stamping out all disagreement, labeling it “disinformation.” This video is likely the evidence that Twitter executives saw and used as rationale for permanently banning Dr. Malone from the platform.
The day after the ban, Malone spoke with podcaster Joe Rogan about why the demonstrably false, unjust, medically dangerous idea of mandatory or heavily coerced vaccination is so widespread. Why do so many people accept it?
“Mass formation psychosis.”
That is the term some European intellectuals use to try to explain what happened in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s. As Malone pointed out, Germany was (and is) one of the most sophisticated nations in the world. The Germans were “a highly intelligent, highly educated population,” he said, “and they went barking mad.” They used their economic and cultural sophistication to follow Adolf Hitler into the abyss of atrocity.
Malone pointed to Prof. Mattias Desmet’s phrase “mass formation psychosis” and defined it as a society where people have “become decoupled from each other and have free-floating anxiety” because people can’t make sense of what is happening. “[T]hen their attention gets focused by a leader or series of events on one small point, just like hypnosis. They literally become hypnotized and can be led anywhere. They will follow that person. It doesn’t matter if they lie to them or whatever. … That is how mass formation psychosis happens, and that is what has happened here.”
What a statement!
But the Trumpet has written for decades much more clearly and much more powerfully about the real cause of what unfolded in Germany and what is unfolding right now. It is the worship of the will.
A Failed Experiment
Malone noted that an American insurance company has reported the death rate is up 40 percent from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people. “It is starting to look to me like the largest experiment on human beings in recorded history has failed,” he said. “At a minimum, based on my reading, one has to conclude that if this report holds and is confirmed by others in the dry world of life insurance actuaries, we have both a huge human tragedy and a profound public policy failure of the U.S. government and U.S. hhs [Department of Health and Human Services] system to serve and protect the citizens that pay for this ‘service.’”
More than 4.6 billion people across 184 countries have been injected with an experimental mrna molecule. Thousands have died from adverse effects of this experimental molecule. And now it looks like the overall death rate is still well above what it was before the pandemic. Yet despite all the evidence that covid vaccinations do not work, the government is looking for ways to force people to get the jab and numerous booster shots.
Those are deadly serious facts, yet governments around the world are aggressively forcing people who are at low risk of suffering severe illness or death to take Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson shots (and to pay for it by the billions with their taxes).
Dr. Malone calls this “the most massive, globally coordinated propaganda and censorship campaign in the history of the human race.” And by censoring him, tech elites are basically confirming his assertion.
U.S. government medical bureaucrat Anthony Fauci and his allies in government and media tell us to “follow the science.” They wrap themselves in the language of medicine, facts and science while they deliberately, systematically censor all science alerting the population that covid-19 vaccines are dangerous—even if those reports come from a man who invented mrna vaccine platform technology.
What you see in the news isn’t an open, may-the-best-facts-win scientific debate. It is a political manipulation designed to frighten people into surrendering their God-endowed rights to a regime. A large part of society is focused like a laser on Fauci and other elites who promise to save them from their anxieties on the one hand, while simultaneously agitating those anxieties as much as possible on the other hand. It’s not a “hypnosis” in the sense of a carnival magic trick. But it is real, it is on a mass scale, and it is far worse.
Look Back at Germany
While Dr. Malone’s comparison to Germany’s experience in the 1920s and 1930s may sound extreme to some, it is dead right. And in a frightening twist of irony, he points out that the mandatory vaccinations are a stark violation of the Nuremberg Code, a set of ethics principles against human experimentation established after Germany’s defeat and the revelations of what happened in the Holocaust.
Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin believed that “[t]he idea becomes a force when it captures the masses,” but Hitler understood that sometimes what captures the masses is not the truth or even the idea as much as it is the emotions. That is why he told Hermann Rauschning, “What you tell people in the mass in a receptive state of fanatic devotion will remain. Words received under a hypnotic influence are radical and impervious to every reasonable explanation.”
This is why Lenin came to power in the bloodiest civil war in history, while Hitler became der führer by popular vote. Rauschning called Hitler a “master enchanter” because he was able to bewitch people and lead them anywhere. Today, we see the hypnosis tactics that Hitler used in the 1930s being used to bewitch people about climate change, coronavirus, racism, socialism and many other issues. Americans have not learned as much from Germany’s history as they should.
But my father, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, has repeatedly looked into and spoken about what happened in Hitler’s mind and how he was able to lead a great nation into such horror.
“Could someone stir up a political revolution simply by repeating a blatant lie over and over and over till people come to believe it?” he wrote in “A Dangerous New Age of ‘Worshiping the Will.’” “Well, this has already happened to a shocking degree! … Hitler had an intense fascination with occult magic. Much of what he told Rauschning about ‘a new age of magic interpretation’ came from the German occultist Ernst Schertel. Schertel’s book on magic was one of the most heavily annotated books in Hitler’s personal library. Hitler’s annotations of Magic: History, Theory and Practice include highlights such as ‘the difference between “true” and “false” has disappeared,’ and ‘quite a lot is gained with [magic]: namely the possibility to intervene in this structure, that is to say change the world according to our will. But this is magic, and on this basis, we are able to create reality where no reality is’” (theTrumpet.com/22176).
We are not talking about circus hypnosis, Disney magic, hocus pocus spells or fictional mysticism. We are talking about the fact that a spirit world clearly exists, that there is clearly evil in it, and that it can exert incredible power over huge numbers of intelligent people.
Hitler did not rely on reason, intelligence, reality, absolute truth or God. He worshiped his own human will and believed he could create his own reality by stirring up negative emotions in others until they became a hypnotized mass behind him. He was being controlled and empowered by something very real, powerful and spiritual.
‘Let No Man Beguile You’
Today, there is a lot of emotion surrounding the debate over mandatory covid-19 vaccinations. There are a lot of angry and depressed people looking to men like Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci for solutions. But there is not a lot of evidence or facts showing that mandatory vaccinations help stop the disease. This is a perfect environment for mass psychosis.
In the U.S. and other nations, politicians, bureaucrats and public health officials are using the existence of covid-19, a slightly more potent version of the flu, as an excuse to blot out freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and many other freedoms. Millions of people are going along with this attack on freedom because the “experts” tell them it’s the only way to save themselves from a devastating pandemic. There is no evidence to support these claims, but society is entering a dangerous time where people worship the whims of their leaders more than factual logic. And leaders are asserting their will to create a new reality, up to and including a pandemic, mass medical experimentation and an institution of tyranny.
“The Apostle Paul wrote about this very subject,” my father continued in his article. “‘Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels [demons, it should read], intruding into those things which he [has] seen [that is the correct translation], vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind …. Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship …’ (Colossians 2:18, 23). … Paul reveals what happens when you worship the human will: It leads to essentially worshiping demons! That is because the human mind is so vulnerable to Satan’s broadcasting, deception and influence, especially when full of vanity. … The radical left is casting aside the foundational law of the land, telling us that it is just getting in the way. We don’t need that old law, they insist. We know what justice is. You can trust us!”
Such will worship turned Germany into a murder machine. It has already stripped Australians of most of their rights, and the U.S. is not far behind.
“We have not learned from this history as we should,” my father wrote. “Could something similar happen today? Could it happen in America?” (ibid).
He has spoken on this subject repeatedly, in depth and consistently, for decades. Scroll through the Key of David program archive and you’ll see him get to the source of it in dozens of programs, both recent and decades old. He and Herbert W. Armstrong before him could see it coming. Now it’s here.
The only way to inoculate yourself against this type of will worship is to be rooted in the truth (see Colossians 2:6-8). At this point, only God can save the United States from the tyranny of the radical left within and lurking enemies without. Scripture indicates that He will break the power of the will worshipers and the mass psychosis afflicting people in America and beyond.
But why will He do that? Is it so that we can go back to living how we want? No: He is giving us one last chance to repent. Yes, the same power that so blatantly influenced Hitler and that influences the radicals today has also influenced us—for generations. We as a people have deep-rooted sins of our own. In fact, our sins, our forgetting and rejecting God have allowed such evil to gain such power over us. Each of us is influenced by “the god of this world,” “the prince of the power of the air” (2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:2). Now, not tomorrow, is the time to realize that.
Mass formation psychosis comes from will worship, will worship comes from sin, and sin is infecting all of us.
“We’re sick as a society,” Malone rightly said—then wrongly said, “and we have to heal ourselves.”
A Sick Society
If you have awakened to mass formation psychosis regarding coronavirus, get ready to wake up from mass formation psychosis regarding climate change, evolution, sex, family, male leadership and even Christianity. Get ready to wake up to the fact that you have been deceived about things you believe.
My father wrote in the July 2017 Trumpet: “In spite of all evidence to the contrary, people insist that sexual license has no consequences—that divorce is liberating—that children are better off without both their biological parents—that a child can be raised by a man and his homosexual lover just as well—that marriage is oppressive, unless it is between two people of the same sex—that biological sex isn’t reality—that ‘gender’ is whatever a person thinks in his mind, and that anyone who won’t play along is a hateful bigot—and many other bizarre fantasies.
“We are being told that we should enthusiastically dismantle the traditional family—the entire foundation of civilization—and that we will be stronger as a society for doing so!
“That is an abominable lie! It is deadly deceit! It is satanic propaganda that will destroy our nations and our civilization!
“Can you recognize how the radical left is leading the West into a world ruled by the will and not by intelligence? And many others follow along or do nothing to oppose this satanic, nation-destroying evil” (theTrumpet.com/15830).
Our age is ruled not by reason and rationality—not by science, not by truth—but by will.
More and more of our leaders believe that truth itself does not exist. President Obama wrote that there is no such thing as “absolute truth.” When that is gone, all that remains is asserting your will over others. People with such illogical, irrational, unscientific, untruthful beliefs and ideologies cannot convince others through rational arguments. The only way they can enforce their will on others is through deceit, lies, intolerance, bullying, coercion and wresting control of the politicians and the courts.
The source that has influenced millions of people into “mass formation psychosis” regarding coronavirus has existed for decades, for generations, for centuries. For millenniums, it has caused millions of normal people to think illogically about themselves and about their Creator. For more than a century, it has convinced normal and especially highly educated people to think that everything came from nothingness; that life came from the lifeless; that purpose, meaning, joy, love and hope are just chemical reactions.
An enormous number of people cling to enormously wrong beliefs that simply cannot be true.
The wake-up call from coronavirus hypnosis is an enormous blessing. The past two years of mass formation psychosis prove that human beings are susceptible en masse to wrong thinking that comes from an origin beyond any one human being, group of human beings, nation or group of nations.
Malone said, “[W]e have to heal ourselves.” He talked about people reasoning their way toward unity and other goals. But the belief that human beings can fix their minds themselves is itself a delusion. It denies the absolute fact that our Creator made us incomplete. He empowered our brains with a human spirit that by its very nature is designed to unite with God’s Spirit. Unless and until it does so, God is unable to finish His creation.
Just as it is demonstrably illogical to think that human beings do not have a Creator who loves them and wants to work with them, it is demonstrably illogical to think that there is not a very different, very real being out there exerting a clear influence on human beings. That being—the prince of the power of the air, the god of this world—deceives the whole world! (Revelation 12:9).
There is no healing ourselves, and there never has been. Humbling ourselves toward our Creator is the only possible way to become connected to a power superior to the power that “deceiveth the whole world.”
God is giving people, giving you, one last chance to wake up (Amos 7:8). Take it.
