This video about mass psychosis showed up in my recommendations and as I watched, I couldn't help but think about the gender cult, and how easily it can fit in mass psychosis. That explains a lot why so many people I know, who are otherwise intelligent, critical, and fact oriented, are falling for this nonsense.

Opinions?

I think it qualifies but it’s not completely organic or spontaneous. There are powerful, moneyed forces feeding it and directing it. Their greatest weapon right now is internet censorship and media blackouts…but more and more people are onto their game.

I agree. I do believe that it's at least partially by design. The same way the witch trials had the church feeding it.

Mass psychosis is what I thought it was from the start, about 2 years ago. I saw this video when it came out and it made me think about this again.

I think gender dysphoria is a form of psychosis, and the gender industry and the cult that surrounds it, that introduces children to the concept of gender identity, know this. They deliberately disturb children in their identity. The vulnerable ones, who are really, really unhappy with their body, now develop gender dysphoria instead of body dysphoria, which they could have outgrown more easily. I am 100% convinced that GD very closely resembles psychosis.

I think you mean the average person who has been lied to about how oppressed trans people are, and don't know the difference between transgender and transsexual. They aren't the ones that have the mental health issues. They just don't know better.

They aren't the ones that have the mental health issues. They just don't know better.

They are not thinking straight. I know a few people who are generally smart, and can think critically, but when it comes to gender, they just repeat TWAW like zombies, and repeat the massive lies TRAs spread. It doesn't make sense to me, how can they not hear what they are saying?

Trans people and gender specials are definitely suffering from mental illness. I don't know if gender dysphoria is a form of psychosis itself (it may be) but they are being driven to insanity with the lies and gaslighting within their own "community", for sure.

When we're not fully aware of how emotions can warp our thinking, intelligence can support the development of delusions because intelligent people tend to believe and rely on what their minds tell them.

I agree, I call it the "stupid smart people" phenomenon.

No matter how smart we are, we all have to take some things on faith (that scientific journals publish articles that are methodologically valid and honest, that our favorite people share our values and don't lie to us, whatever). Put that together with tribalism, and it turns out that intelligence doesn't provide much of a shield against mass delusion. We have to actively question ourselves and actively resist.

Interesting.

A genealogist/history buff once told me that he noticed that accusations of witchcraft seemed to target women as a way to silence them and/or appropriate their property. He was an older dude, and this was a long time ago, so it had to be really obvious for him to notice it.

Yes, I think it was also a way for men to get revenge on women for rejecting their sexual advances.

Yeah, that was the case, it seems. But to have people complying with the execution of women of their own community, there must be something else at play, and I believe it was the church doing something similar to what we're witnessing today with the trans cult against women.

That was an enjoyable video, but it was kind of trippy feeling like I was watching propaganda (or a specific sort of delusion) peeking out within a video that warned against such things... I guess it felt like there was a certain lack of self-awareness. Or maybe I was reading too much into it.

I agree about gender identity ideology... it certainly seems similar to mass delusion.

I got suspicious of the video when one drawing depicting an individual who apparently was a victim of mass delusion or of factors resulting in such a thing, was wearing a medical mask. Maybe I've just seen too many of those recently, but my mind immediately jumped to "COVID / mask truthers".

This channel has many videos with these anti social media and anti capitalism messages. I didn't get a propaganda vibe, though (maybe I missed it?)

As most of these things go, I did feel like the point of view was very male. Perhaps because of Jung. I don't know all that much of his work, but I always get the vibe that he only ever knew anything about male minds.

Yes, I had a super strong male vibe, too... I suppose because basically every quote said "man" and "men" and "he/him" etc.

By the end of it I was thinking about the totalitarian rule of the patriarchy, which functions through the mass delusion of male superiority…
