Mass Formation Psychosis?
Psychosis is when people lose some contact with reality.
Mass formation psychosis is when a large part of society
focuses its attention on a leader(s) or a series of events and their attention focuses on one small point or issue.
Followers can be hypnotized and be led anywhere,
regardless of data proving otherwise.
What are the components of MFS?
Here are four key components needed for an environment to
experience a mass formation psychosis: lack of social bonds or decoupling of societal connections, lack of sense-making
(things don’t make sense), free-floating anxiety, and
free-floating psychological discontent.
Free-floating anxiety is a general sense of uneasiness
that is not tied to any particular object or specific situation.
When followers start to participate in a strategy to deal
with the object of anxiety, new social bonds
typically emerge and people change from a highly adverse
negative mental state and isolation, to the exact opposite to
the extremely high level of connective-ness that exists.
