The Psychology of Totalitarianism

The world is in the grips of mass formationa dangerous, collective type of hypnosisas we bear witness to loneliness, free-floating anxiety, and fear giving way to censorship, loss of privacy, and surrendered freedoms. It is all spurred by a singular, focused crisis narrative that forbids dissident views and relies on destructive groupthink.

Desmets work on mass formation theory was brought to the worlds attention on The Joe Rogan Experience and in major alternative news outlets around the globe. Read this book to get beyond the sound bites!

Totalitarianism is not a coincidence and does not form in a vacuum. It arises from a collective psychosis that has followed a predictable script throughout history, its formation gaining strength and speed with each generationfrom the Jacobins to the Nazis and Stalinistsas technology advances. Governments, mass media, and other mechanized forces use fear, loneliness, and isolation to demoralize populations and exert control, persuading large groups of people to act against their own interests, always with destructive results.

In The Psychology of Totalitarianism, world-renowned Professor of Clinical Psychology Mattias Desmet deconstructs the societal conditions that allow this collective psychosis to take hold. By looking at our current situation and identifying the phenomenon of mass formationa type of collective hypnosishe clearly illustrates how close we are to surrendering to totalitarian regimes.

With detailed analyses, examples, and results from years of research, Desmet lays out the steps that lead toward mass formation, including:

  • An overall sense of loneliness and lack of social connections and bonds
  • A lack of meaningunsatisfying bullsh*t jobs that dont offer purpose
  • Free-floating anxiety and discontent that arise from loneliness and lack of meaning
  • Manifestation of frustration and aggression from anxiety
  • Emergence of a consistent narrative from government officials, mass media, etc., that exploits and channels frustration and anxiety 

 

In addition to clear psychological analysisand building on Hannah Arendts essential work on totalitarianism, The Origins of TotalitarianismDesmet offers a sharp critique of the cultural groupthink that existed prior to the pandemic and advanced during the COVID crisis. He cautions against the dangers of our current societal landscape, media consumption, and reliance on manipulative technologies and then offers simple solutionsboth individual and collectiveto prevent the willing sacrifice of our freedoms.

We can honor the right to freedom of expression and the right to self-determination without feeling threatened by each other, Desmet writes. But there is a point where we must stop losing ourselves in the crowd to experience meaning and connection. That is the point where the winter of totalitarianism gives way to a spring of life.

"Desmet has an . . . important take on everything thats happening in the world right now."Aubrey Marcus, podcast host

"[Desmet] is waking a lot of people up to the dangerous place we are now with a brilliant distillation of how we ended up here."Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

"One of the most important books Ive ever read."Ivor Cummins, The Fat Emperor Podcast
