‘What has caused all the COVID madness? Why has there been so much irrationality? So much fear? So much division? And what is ‘mass formation’?
To answer all of that and more is psychologist Prof. Mattias Desmet, who joins us for part one of a two-part interview beginning episode 12 of Conservative One: Pandemic Unmasked.
Mattias Desmet is a Professor of Clinical Psychology at Belgium’s Ghent University. He also holds a Masters degree in statistics. Prof. Desmet has been outspoken on the irrationality of societal responses to the pandemic since its early days and formulated the psychological concept of ‘mass formation’ to explain that irrationality.
He has just written a book that will be published in English later this year titled “The Psychology of Totalitarianism”.’https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/what-has-caused-covid-madness-with-prof-mattias-desmet/id1508102034?i=1000549400165
