Some serious critique about psychology professor and author Mattias Desmet has been published on America Out Loud this week.
Today I received an e-mail with this text:
With all due respect, after having read “The Psychology of Totalitarianism”, I agree with Peter Breggin that Prof. Matthias Desmet is nothing else than an (un)conscious gaslighter himself, who makes us believe that the eternal conspiracy of the most powerful of the “2%” psychopaths for eternal domination over us “98%” empathetic humans is nothing else than a mass illusion.
By Catherine Austin Fitts
Peter Breggin and his brilliant wife Ginger have just published a serious review of The Psychology of Totalitarianism by Mattias Desmet and the dangers of his mass formation theory, in a three-part series.
Mattias Desmet Demoralizes the Freedom Movement – Mass Hypnosis Expert or Trojan Horse
Mattias Desmet Diagnoses Researchers as Mentally Disturbed – Mass Hypnosis Expert or Trojan Horse
Mattias Desmet Blames the Victims and Absolves the Perpetrators – Mass Hypnosis Expert or Trojan Horse

So the question is: Is Mattias Desmet and his book about covid-19 psychology the real deal or a new kind of controlled opposition?
Well, I don’t know, but I do have some thoughts about the question.
Maybe Mattias Desmet is just human? Like all other humans he too perceives reality through his personal filters. It should therefore be no surprise that a psychologist with expertise in mass hypnosis will view covid-19 as a result of the psychological processes involved in mass hypnosis. I have a background in nutrition and I have published a report that concluded that covid-19 is a nutrition related disease. People with other backgrounds will have other filters that will lead them to different conclusions. It is therefore important that we have an open and free debate and sharing of informations, arguments and evidence.
I think most who have studied covid-19 more than through the mainstream news media will agree that covid-19 is a very complex phenomenon. I will here list some main groups of explanations:
A. Covid-19 is exactly as we are told from the mainstream media, authorities and politicians.
B. Covid-19 is for the most part as we are told from the mainstream media, authorities and politicians – but errors have been made which in combination with mass hypnosis creates a very dangerous situation. But no one is really to blame. There is no big conspiracy. No hidden hands are pulling the strings for some hidden agenda. Mattias Desmet falls into this category.
C. Covid-19 is not at all as we are told from the mainstream media, authorities and politicians. It is a criminal conspiracy orchestrated from the highest level of global power.
I agree with the critics of Desmet, that his book provides an excuse and a way out for the potential criminals. But this may not have been his intent, but simply a consequence of his filter of perception.
The real problem as I see it is that no authorities are doing real and thorough criminal investigations into the suspected global crime conspiracy that covid-19 may be. The evidence provided by others is only circumstantial. The real problem is that the authorities with the capacity to do such investigation are being controlled by the suspects – if the criminal theory is true – which creates a system in which the criminals will never be investigated, prosecuted and punished.
Gode og konstruktive tanker omkring Mattias Desmet – som jeg i øvrigt ellers er stor fan af. Vi ser verden igennem vores eget personlige filter, hvilket også er gældende for diverse faggrupper vedr. alt hvad er berørt af situationen vi står midt i. Tak for dit view Per.
I have studied academic psychology for 42 years. In addition I took more than 100 professional educational courses. In addition I have personally undergone more than 200 sessions of psychotherapy. Finally I have read hundreds of books and listened to thousands of online classes and the sorts. Per – your references here makes me realize that I need to study Desmets publications. Intuitively I got thrown off, because the term “massformation” seemed so awkward to me? My reasoning was that since “masspsychosis” is such a familiar term – then why complicate things further? I also felt that the term “masspsychosis”… Read more »
IN ENDING IT is worth noting that with the new studies in “HSP – Highly sensitive Person” / “SSP – Særligt Sensitiv Person” – the definition of the term “Empath” has become much more differentiated. And in 2015 danish testdevelopers gave the number “20% of the population” as “empaths” – however the lower echelons of “empaths” – does NOT have half as many positive indicators for sensitivy as the classical ones. One last important note for now is that “Dark Triade Personality Types” actually do posses an extremely high degree of “Empathy” – but it is “COLD EMPATHY”. It is… Read more »
(I suppose that “Character disturbance” should rightly be termed “Personality disorder”.)
Additional generak thoughts from “Academy of ideas”
To Per : Regarding your list of suggested positions A B and C: I really like your methology – creating an overview and description of positions. This is necessary. However positions A and B are only possible for people with a huge lack of what I consider basic knowledge within the fields of philosophy, psychology, art, history and geopolitics. Then again being a polymath (polyhistor) myself my standards are probably high for todays intellectually decaying society – but at the same time low for the academic levels 50 years ago. This is an interesting debate, which contains many keys to… Read more »

Other people than Breggin have already critiqued Desmet and his “theory” .. I’ve seen the following a while back …. The official framing of the mass formation (or mass psychosis) “phenomenon” is misleading and wrong. The false hope-addicted psychologists and their acolytes want you to believe this is “just some temporary occasional” madness by the masses when it is but a spike of a CHRONIC madness going on for aeons with “civilized” people — read The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon” One of these mainstream psychologists who have… Read more »
