(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Singer and guitarist Eric Clapton said in an interview with The Real Music Observer that people vaccinated against COVID-19 suffer from “mass formation hypnosis,” a propaganda-driven herd mentality that causes aggression, depression, and viewpoint intolerance.
Clapton himself received the AstraZeneca shot in 2021, suffered a “disastrous” reaction to the untested and unapproved formula, feared he “would never play again,” and then became an outspoken opponent of the COVID-19 shots, the New York Post reported.
Before he learned about mass formation psychosis, he received the initial shot because he fell for Big Pharma’s subliminal advertising.
“Whatever the memo was, it hadn’t reached me,” Clapton said about the popularization of mass formation psychosis, which he referred to as a form of “hypnosis.”
“Then I started to realize there was really a memo, and a guy, Mattias Desmet [professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium], talked about it,” he said. “And it’s great. The theory of mass formation hypnosis. And I could see it then. Once I kind of started to look for it, I saw it everywhere.”
After learning about Desmet’s theory, he started “seeing little things on YouTube which were like subliminal advertising.”
Big Tech, the corporate media, and the academy immediately waged war on the idea of mass formation psychosis.
The idea simply reflects the long-standing concept that madness can affect crowds and that charismatic leaders combined with effective propaganda can cause people to lose their attachment to reality.
These same groups used the idea, though not the name, to smear President Donald Trump‘s supporters as brainwashed, cult members, ideologues, and fanatics.
Clapton said his career had ended for a year and a half before he decided to start resisting the COVID-19 restrictions.
“My career had almost gone anyway. At the point where I spoke out, it had been almost 18 months since I’d kind of been forcibly retired,” he said.
Then he reached out to another artist who has opposed the COVID-19 regime.
“I joined forces with Van [Morrison] and I got the tip Van was standing up to the measures and I thought, ‘Why is nobody else doing this?’ … so I contacted him,” he added.
