Editorial: Part II COVID in the age of mass formation

November 11, 2021

If you haven’t yet, listen to the interview about mass formation with Dr. Mattias Desmet, a Belgian professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University who also holds a masters degree in statistics:


ONCE UPON A TIME, the U.S. had a fourth estate, made up of real journalists whose job was to keep We the People informed. We watched the news at 6 and 10, and read the morning and/or evening paper. The press were the government and corporate watch dogs, here to throw light down the dark hidey holes of power.

COVID arrived into a new world of no real press. Instead, social media broadcasts 24/7 and Mainstream Media is carefully scripted by corporations. How we got here was gradual, but a brief look at the past ten years reveals the slow slide into our present culture dominated by propaganda.

By 2011, Roger Ailes’ right-wing Fox News was already notorious for the propaganda of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter. In February that year, they were caught lying about the peaceful protests that were taking place at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Bill O’Reilly and Mike Tobin were making claims that we had been violent, while running footage of horses, gun play, and palm trees, none of which I witnessed in Madison that day. From then on, it was indisputable that “Fox News Lies.”

By 2016, most of liberal media was also under corporate control. Rachel Maddow’s needed voice of dissent morphed into propagating the Russiangate hoax ad infinitum. Clinton hitman David Brock and his Super PAC Correct the Record spent millions on shutting down the voices of her opposition. “Putin puppets” were born, and those who ran against the narrative were crucified. Trump became the Object of all liberal anxiety as left-wing propaganda reached an all-time high and never came down.

Jump to today’s health crisis. The virus arrived in a climate already rife with free-floating anxiety. Government lockdowns led to more isolation, exasperating the crisis of community and spiking frustration. As the deaths increased, in an Orwellian fashion people were not allowed to be with their dying loved ones in their last moments. Fear and frustration elevated into a massive global terror; no country was spared. This accumulating terror exasperated those already dealing with pre-existing mental health conditions and triggered a mental health crisis in the general population. In a study done by the University of Paris, children’s suicide rates increased 299% prior to the second lock down in November 2020.

Here in the U.S., Trump Derangement Syndrome was so deeply embedded in the liberal worldview that millions dismissed anything and everything the man said, just because he said it. Biden and Harris piled on, peddling the mistrust by saying they would refuse the vaccine if ordered by Trump.

Into this amorphous mess of human stress, Big Pharma, using Big Tech and MSM, broadcast the narrative 24/7: COVID is the new Object of our anxiety. The strategy to defeat it? Give up your civil liberties.

According to Human Rights Watch, at least 83 governments have used the pandemic to justify violating the rights of free speech and peaceful assembly. Chinese ophthalmologist Dr. Li Wenliang, who first warned about the virus, was criminalized for “spreading false rumors” and was only cleared after he died from it. When the U.S. was facing a shortage of PPE equipment, emergency room doctor Ming Lin was terminated for pleading on social media for better protection for his patients. All over the world, journalists, healthcare workers, political opposition groups, and critics of government responses have been attacked, detained, prosecuted, and in some cases killed.

Ivermectin, an award-winning medicine that has been used safely for decades, was reduced to a joke, merely because Trump suggested it. Since the time that Trump’s doctors used Ivermectin to treat his early stages of COVID, hundreds of trials have been conducted. Founded in 1987, the American Journal of Therapeutics concluded, “Ivermectin is likely to be an equitable, acceptable, and feasible global intervention against COVID-19.” But by then, the country was in full-on mass formation. Big Pharma couldn’t have this proven safe, affordable drug kicking its ass. They would not have gotten emergency approval for the vaccines and gone on to make billions off this crisis if there was a reliable alternative. Luckily for Pfizer, so many marched lock step to the propaganda that was dousing them, driven by their misplaced distrust of Trump, just because he’s Trump.

One comedienne’s career skyrocketed as she made fun of Trump’s reference to hydroxychloroquine. Yet in April 2020, the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons released a 45-page report outlining the success using hydroxychloroquine in the very early stages of infection. In June 2020, they filed a lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration to end arbitrary interference with the use of the drug. Another study done in August 2020 by the Henry Ford Health System in Michigan showed hydroxychloroquine reduced mortality by 50% and recommended it’s role in treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

In the midst of it all, the U.S. government gave Big Tech carte blanche to censor free speech under the guise of combating “misinformation.” For Big Pharma to keep control of the narrative, legitimate but dissenting views were taken down, sometimes accompanied by “fact checks” that were often misinformation themselves. Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology, has been vaccinated and repeatedly states that he supports the use of the vaccine for those who truly need it. Still, hit pieces written by a new wave of David Brock-type trolls and fake “experts call him anti-vaxx and question his credentials. Those who even consider challenging the narrative are mercilessly mocked by subsumed Democrats like Keith Oberman, who called people who want to make their own medical choices “morons,” “idiots” and “losers.

Outright lies broadcast on MSM, on the other hand, are allowed to proliferate. CNN, MSNBC, et al, all exploded with, “Joe Rogan takes horse de-wormer!” Even when he debunked it and threatened to sue, MSM allowed the story to stand, and some of my liberal friends are still repeating it. Others of us are watching Rogan grill CNN Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta on why his network lied about him.

In an article published by NBC News on October 14, 2021, data from the American Academy of Pediatrics showed that only a small amount of children who get COVID get seriously ill or die. Yet on October 30, NBC Medical Correspondent Dr. John Torres made the claim that 146,000 children have died from COVID. Considering the corporate sponsorship of the press by Pfizer and lack of credible data on the part of Torres, his report should rightfully be marked as “misinformation.” Who is going to do that?

Now we’re moving toward an ethically questionable passport that gives Big Pharma the power to decide who boards a plane, gets into a restaurant, and anything else they so deem, based on whatever drug they demand you put into your body, or else. If Trump had suggested vaccine mandates, Biden and Harris already said they would not comply. Democrats would have lost their minds over his demanding passports—Tyrant! Dictator! As it is, Biden, Harris and Pelosi all lied and said they would not—could not—mandate it. Now that Biden is the tyrant and putting forth the passport idea, it’s full steam ahead, and well-meaning liberals follow faithfully along. (PS Members of congress are exempt from the mandates).

Some feel the idea of forcing people to get jabbed under these circumstances and against their will harkens back to Nazi Germany. But it wouldn’t be the first time the U.S. Department of Defense mandated experimental drugs without consent. A 1994 report entitled Is Military Research Hazardous to Veterans’ Health? Lessons Spanning Half A Century reveals that between 1922 and 1975, hundreds of thousands of military personnel were subjected to human experimentation, often without their consent.

I know far more people who did not take the jab than those who did. Unlike the liberal narrative that they’re all deplorable Republicans, 99% are liberals and people of color. Some are scared to speak, considering that their “allies” who chant “my body, my choice” about abortion rights are suddenly suggesting outright tyranny for them: they should be denied healthcare, they should be put into camps, they deserve to get sick and die. What the Republicans and Scott Walker did to demonize teachers in 2011 is nowhere near as bad as what liberals today are doing to the un-jabbed.

It is immoral that the same healthcare workers and fire fighters who supported this country at their own risk in the early stages of this crisis are now about to lose their jobs. Yet my pro-mandate friends appear to have no empathy: “They deserve what they get.” One actually said we need to take away people’s right to choose in order to “save democracy.” I kid you not. They purposefully confuse “anti-mandate” with “anti-vax,” and shrug at the thought of a segregated society where class is determined by pharmaceutical orders and censorship, and your medical decisions are public knowledge. My only hope is to believe this is mass formation, and not that my friends are turning radically evil, all at once.

Firing the millions of workers who will not obey the mandate is creating a different crisis. “They deserve what they get” doesn’t take into account the impact on, for example, New York City, where 2,000 NYC Firefighters didn’t obey, thereby closing down 26 fire stations in the city and putting thousands of firefighters out of work without pay and no benefits.

Forcing mandates to go this far is immoral. This is what tyranny looks like.

New York Fire Fighters refuse to be mandated.

According to Dr. Desmet, where this is headed could be truly terrifying. People are turning on their allies, family, and friends when subsumed by mass formation. They blindly support totalitarian measures like passports for the jabbed and camps for anyone else. Not because it makes sense, but because its safer to go along to get along than be subjected to the abuse incurred when you think for yourself and speak up against the narrative.

In these times of heightened anxiety and the drone of mass formation, safety is scarce. Eric Clapton recently came out to talk about the permanent disability he is suffering after his AstraZeneca shots. Sadly, the world piled on him, with Rolling Stone leading the charge with a cruel and shameful attempt to gaslight him.

If there is a bottom line, it’s hopeful. Listen to the open discussion with the doctors below who feel it is a pandemic of the under treated. They are hopeful about the results they are seeing repurposing other affordable, safe drugs like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine in order to provide early treatment:

Living under this deafening roar of propaganda from both sides, as hard as it is, we all have to admit that we simply do not know. There is no overarching expert in one place to give us the truth about COVID-19. Your source can be as scientific or unscientific as mine.

Under all of these circumstances, supporting people’s right to choose is the only sane conclusion.

One Comment on “Editorial: Part II COVID in the age of mass formation”

    Dear Barbara

    Hello from the UK. Thank you very much for this post.

    As regards ‘Has everybody gone insane?’ I would say a large proportion of the world did last year. Many now seem to be regaining their sanity.

    You may be interested in my Covid 19 Summary which sets out the truth behind Covid 19, a.k.a the seasonal ‘flu until re-branding by big pharma in 2020. As with any sales technique, re-branding always helps to sell more stuff to people that they don’t want or need.

    Like vaccines of course. I used to think vaccines were of some use until I researched properly last year at 60 years old. I found I was wrong so I changed my mind.

    Here is my link. Please note that I do use humour as necessary to help lighten the mood and to help make the points. They do say laughter is the best medicine so I try to do my best!


    The link contains sub-links to the various issues.

    Kind regards
