This is an important, contextualising, discussion. I don’t know how to best describe it but there is the suggestion that acceptance of dominant narrative is a consequence of a sense of anomie or emptiness of meaning and then of induced focus on a singular object or threat that unites and gives purpose. I’m not going to use the v or the c words but this is an important part of understanding what is happening in relation to these.
Mattias Desmet’s recommendations at the end of the discussion are spot on.
- Continue to speak out
- Connect in the real world with people who have the feeling that something is wrong
- Don’t try to get people to go back to the the old normal but think about an alternative to the transhumanist technocratic new normal
- Non violent resistance in our actions and how we speak.

Following malones reference to mass psychosis, here is my psychological two pennies worth.. Everyone knows or fears that the vaccines could harm them. They know the vaccines are increasingly irrelevant in protecting from covid as their efficacy wanes and new strains appear. They are rightly angry that they have been forced to be vaccinated. But too many are directing this anger against the unvaccinated.This is an example of a sadly pervasive primitive and fundamental unconscious psychological defence mechanism called identification with the aggressor. Young children and other vulnerable people subjected to violent abuse, finding themselves physically and morally helpless against attacks by those upon whom they are completely dependent for love and care, surrender their will completely to the aggressor, and identify totally with the aggressor.They cannot acknowledge their complete helplessness. They cannot acknowledge that the person that is supposed to love them actually hates and abuses them. By identifying with this person they become magically safe and strong.It is simply insane to attack someone who has had covid and therefore has at least as much protection as any vaccinated person for not getting vaccinated. They are less likely to infect others and less likely to take up scarce hospital space than a vaccinated person. Thats not taking into account possible long term harm from the vaccine which could take up a lot of hospital space.When people behave in a completely irrational fashion, unconscious psychic defence mechanisms are typically involved.

I’ll take your two pennies worth and add two of my own. Identification with the aggressor and mass formation psychosis are I think pathological expressions of tendencies more neutrally expressed as mass formation phenomena and identification with the powerful. Simply put most people find comfort and security in crowds and kings. Perhaps about ten percent feel out place talking with crowds and walking with Kings. Cognitive ‘normies’ and ‘queers’ both groups and tendencies are necessary in maintaining virtue and the sense of common humanity but right now it’s the queer consciousness that has to hold virtue and see us through.
