Professor of Clinical Pscyhology at Gent University in Belgium, Mattias Desmet, gave this testimonal to the Corona Ausschuss with Dr Reiner Fuellmich recently. A fascinating insight into the psychology behind the formation of a mass psychological phenomenon.
It is not a secret, and has likely always been known to those with propensity to carry out injustices throughout history.
Showing that the narrative is wrong by pointing out evidence, inconsistency of claims being made, harms caused etc, makes no difference once fear has been established. As someone who isn’t afraid of Covid-19, but is very afraid of the socio-political changes evolving globally and the extraordinary harms they are leading us towards, in the name of this one virus, I can see I am equally vulnerable to this psychological phenomenon.
It has been a genius piece of work by those who led us here. Professor Desmet explains this so well.
“Another feature of totalitarian states is that people become radically intolerant of dissonant voices … If someone claims that the official story is wrong, this person threatens to wake the people up, and they will get angry as they are confronted with their initial anxiety and initial discontent. And so they direct all their aggression at these dissonant voices.
At the same time they are radically tolerant of their leaders, who can cheat and lie and manipulate, and do anything they want. They will always be forgiven by the crowd, because the crowd seems to think that they do it for their own safety …
I don’t know the origins. Sometimes it is arrived at spontaneously. Sometimes it is provoked artificially. Some of my colleagues do appear to be intentionally involved in provoking fear and anxiety …
… Being funded by someone diminishes your capacity to think independently. At this moment, science is really in a crisis, and one of the reasons is that science is almost all funded by people it should not be funded by“.
This helps to explain why so many leading public health experts have become enemies of the global state over the past year; why only those with enough courage to stand their ground and face severe consequences, have been willing to continue to speak out. And why, alongside the influential role of media in provocation and obfuscation, no amount of solid evidence and explanations have been able to alter public perception.
