Lucky from Tobago loves garbage and refuses dog food.

This essay took over 30 hours to research and rewrite. You need 8 minutes to read it or 15 minutes to listen.

It is not easy to find healthy fare these days. But if you stick with me, I will show you where you should feed your mind.

UNTIL RECENTLY, I WAS ANGRY and had lost all respect for the blue-pillers. The facts were obvious, and they refused to “get it.” I thought You cannot wake someone up who is pretending to be asleep.

I often wondered if they were bribed (corrupt) or afraid (cowardly). Some of them seemed to have been fooled because they were stupid. But this did not explain the whole thing because a lot of the smart ones were deceived along with the rest.

MATTIAS DESMET, a Belgian psychoanalyst, has a theory about this bizarrely compliant behavior. He calls it “mass formation.” Robert Malone brought Desmet’s ideas into public awareness in Rogan’s brilliant episode #1757.


  • This is a type of group hypnosis first seen in the mid-20th century.

  • Once it develops, about 30% of the population is easily captured.

  • Ten percent remain unhypnotized. (Yoho note: this seems higher now).

  • The majority, 60%, feel there’s something wrong but go along because they don’t want to stand out.

  • The leaders push the narrative. Most of them are also hypnotized, but others understand the lies and go along to gain power.

  • Waking up the compliant 30% is nearly impossible.

  • Working with the skeptical majority can be successful.

  • If no one speaks out, these situations can develop into tyranny and even genocide.

  • Non-violent opposition works in some cases. Desmet believes that violence is counterproductive.


In February 2020, at the beginning of the Corona crisis, Desmet studied Covid virus statistics. He saw that the danger was overrated. Stanford’s John Ioannidis and several other world-famous statisticians agreed.

Desmet wrote a paper to explain the mistakes, but he found that many people ignored him. They seemed to have lost their ability to reason, and he became convinced that a large-scale mass formation was developing.

Shockingly, affected people were sometimes willing to sacrifice everything important to them in pursuit of their ideas — their health, their wealth, and even the health of their children. Some stigmatized and tried to destroy those who were not going along.


Desmet claims that mass formation-type group hypnosis always precedes the rise of totalitarian states.

He says that classical dictatorships are psychologically primitive. People in these societies are afraid of the small number of people running the country.

Modern totalitarian states, in contrast, arise from a different mechanism. These did not exist before the 20th century and are based on this mass hypnosis. This happened before the formation of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

In each case, the leaders used sophisticated propaganda tools. The current totalitarianism is global rather than regional, and the propaganda techniques are more powerful, but the basic dynamics are the same.

Desmet reports:

Hypnotists start by distracting a subject’s attention. Then, using a suggestion such as a simple story, they focus attention on one thing such as a pendulum or their voice. For the hypnotized person, reality seems to vanish. This technique has even been used for surgical anesthesia. The hypnotized person is so focused that they do not feel pain as they are cut.

Currently, the focus is on COVID, and the affected do not notice injuries due to Covid countermeasures. In some countries, people were imprisoned for not wearing a mask, and the hypnotized might not raise an eyebrow. Children might die from starvation and friends commit suicide from financial desperation, but the impact on those under the mass formation might be minimal.

COVID jab deaths and injuries are seldom recognized to be caused by the shot. Some people got the injection, suffered massive injuries, and say, “Thank goodness I got it or I would have been so much worse.” I’ve even seen people express gratitude when someone they loved died within hours or days of the injection.

“Even when I know the mechanisms, I’m still baffled every time it happens,” Desmet says. “I almost can’t believe what I see. I know someone whose husband died in his sleep from a heart attack a few days after the vaccine. I thought, ‘Now she will open her eyes and wake up.’ Not at all. She just continued in the same fanatic way — even more fanatic — talking about how happy we should be because we have this vaccine. Unbelievable, yes.”

Recently, “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)” has been used to normalize these new fatalities. But they only happen to the people who had Covid jabs. This labeling is a lie from one of Pharma’s standard playbooks. SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) has been used to normalize neonatal deaths. Just as for SADS, prior vaccinations are universal.


Desmet says mass formation preconditions are:

  • Widespread loneliness and lack of social bonding, which leads to:

  • Meaninglessness and purposelessness, which leads to:

  • Widespread free-floating anxiety and discontent, which leads to:

  • Feeling out of control

Once a large enough number feels this way, the whole country becomes vulnerable to group hypnosis.

Desmet explains further:

When the media promotes the fears (Covid) along with a corrective strategy (vaccine), listeners are susceptible.

People who feel lonely, anxious, and out of control start to believe the story and take part, and a new social bond emerges. The free-floating frustration and aggression may be directed against those who have not been hypnotized.

Normal bonds are between individuals. This one is between the individual and the collective, which is pathological. It creates a feeling of fanatic solidarity, but without personal loyalties. The result is that those outside the group might be remorselessly sacrificed for the “greater good.”

During the panic, the media encouraged people to think and say, “We are in this together.” But if someone had an accident, few would help unless they had a surgical mask and gloves. And the hypnotized accepted that hospital visits were not allowed, even when their father or mother was dying.

Some were even willing to report their loved ones to the government. Iran’s revolution was a similar situation. I interviewed a witness to the following. A mother turned her son in to the police and later helped put the rope around his neck to hang him. She claimed this made her a heroine.


External enemies destroyed Nazi Germany. But today. the totalitarianism arising has no outside enemy, and our own citizens are the only ones who might defeat it.

In 1984, George Orwell wrote that totalitarian countries need an external adversary to focus the aggression of the hypnotized masses. But since the situation developing now has no outside enemy, Desmet thinks it might be more likely to self-destruct.


Desmet believes that nonviolence is preferred because the regime can focus on any violent opposition and destroy it. He says we must speak out.

He explains further:

Dissidents may not be able to wake the masses, but they interfere with the process. Large-scale aggression by the regime becomes less likely.

When the opposition stops voicing objections, totalitarian systems tighten. In 1930, in the Soviet Union, the opposition went quiet and went underground. Within six to eight months, Stalin began his purges and killed tens of millions. In 1935, in Nazi Germany, when the opposition became silent, the concentration camp slaughters began. In each case, the opposition thought they were dealing with a classical dictatorship. But they were dealing with a totalitarian state.

In the first stages, totalitarian systems attack those who do not go along with them. Later, they start to destroy everyone, group after group. In the Soviet Union, Stalin started by eliminating aristocracy, then small farmers, large farmers, goldsmiths, and Jews. The pretext was that these people would never become good communists. He later dropped the excuses and went after other groups.

Desmet and Mercola, whose post I modified for this article, are convinced that we are falling toward global totalitarianism. They say that things will get far worse before they get better. Why? Digital identity and digital currencies are on the horizon. With these come an unfathomably powerful control grid capable of breaking nearly anyone.


Those who have studied mass formation and totalitarianism say that both are self-destructive and cannot survive. Desmet also says that the more aggressively a system destroys individuals, the sooner it collapses—a glimmer of hope. His rough guess is that it might be seven or eight years before the totalitarian trends implode.

DESMET’S NEW BOOK is The Psychology of Totalitarianism. And Mercola’s podcast recently featured an interview with Desmet.

YOHO NOTE: Although the mass formation ideas seem to fit current events, I caution readers that these are speculations. Although Desmet’s ideas have achieved popular currency, he is a psychoanalyst, a member of a notoriously unreliable and unscientific specialty. There is nothing that they are fonder of than theoretical interpretations like this.

And Desmet completely misses the planning, coordination, and criminal intent of the recent disasters. He instead ascribes what is happening to psychological forces playing out on a global stage. Malcolm Pritchard, an Amazon reviewer of Desmet’s book, wrote:

I strongly disagree with [Desmet’s] assertion that there was no coordination behind the events that took place. In fact, I cannot believe that an academic would make such a blatant blunder in reasoning. There have been protocols developed over hundreds if not thousands of years about how to deal with a possible contagion. None of that was followed by the vast majority of countries in the world. It would be normal to stop infected people from entering an uninfected area, and it is normal to quarantine the sick and not the healthy. Asymptomatic transmission is a very rare event, not something that should take centre stage and warrant useless PCR testing. I could go on and on… Combining this with Event 201 [On October 18, 2019, the World Economic Forum and Gates Foundation did a war-game rehearsal just before the pandemic], and the Rockefeller Lockstep document [a similar simulation in 2010 by the Rockefeller Foundation],* I think there is strong evidence to show the intent of those involved

The Rockefeller Foundation also predicted the COVID-related food crisis 2 years before it happened.

The inhuman criminal sociopaths coordinating this whole thing have never been shy about announcing their intentions. For example, see Klaus Schwab’s various videos and books. The Real Anthony Fauci (RFK, Jr.) and Covid-19 and the Global Predators (Peter and Ginger Breggin) explain this in detail.

Chapter 12 of RFK’s book is entitled Germ Games:

Dark Winter, Atlantic Storm, and Global Mercury were only three of over a dozen Germ Games staged by military, medical, and intelligence planners leading up to COVID-19. Each of these Kafkaesque exercises became uncanny predictors of a dystopian age that pandemic planners dubbed the “New Normal.” The consistent feature is an affinity among their simulation designers for militarizing medicine and introducing centralized autocratic governance.


When the search term “mass formation” exploded in popularity, Google responded by manipulating search engine results to discredit Desmet. Why? Because Google is at the core of the global cabal moving us toward totalitarianism.

Robert Epstein describes the Google monster in his interview on Joe Rogan #1768. Listen if you dare to face what is happening.

THIS POST WAS SHAMELESSLY ABRIDGED from one of Joseph Mercola’s articles. Since Desmet’s Germanic style is stuffed with redundancy and obfuscation, I simplified his prose as well, which was a ridiculously lengthy project. Any mistakes of meaning are mine.

I was “stuck” in Trinidad during the pandemic.
