Why do so many people still buy into the narrative?
This does explain some things. Like, the vax passports are the newest “badge” to identify the compliers. Masks do not allow the deceived masses to identify non-compliers but the passports do. Non-compliers must be identifiable so that the masses can turn their rage on them, not on the people who gave them the vaccine. So the passports play a crucial role for TPTB.
It also explains why TPTB are ordering in so many medical supplies (reference the TikTok video posted yesterday) – for when the masses wake up.
And it is also powerful evidence that we are not ‘conspiracy theorists’. We have talked for months about there being some kind of mass psychosis going on and this interview proves precisely that.
Professor Desmet answered that some people are not affected by Mass Formation because of “Broader Ideological Preferences”.
One preference that comes to mind is belief in a higher power?
I live in a rural community with strong faith ties…..I can look at my vaxxed friends and my unvaxxed friends and see that those with a belief system that goes beyond “belief in man” are among the 30% who have not drunk the koolaid.
I’m an atheist that hasn’t drunk the koolaid but I do know a lot of religious family members/friends who have in Australia. I do however have a strong love and respect for the natural world and all it’s creatures and think the world is full of mysteries we can’t possibly understand 🙂
[quote]As a simple, logic-driven engineer I have been completely at a loss to understand how so many of my obviously intelligent friends and acquaintances have so utterly and unquestioningly swallowed the official narrative hook line and sinker. They seem to have totally lost their power to extract the obvious conclusion from the available facts.[/quote]
I dumbfounded as well. I’m an engineer/project manager working for an Automotive OEM, and deal with dozens and dozens of engineers on a daily basis. In my engineering circle, there are only a couple of people that are refusing the vax because their own research is showing issues that concern them. There are some that are not saying yay or nay, but most are going for the jab. The gaslighting is working very well on the masses, and worse, they don’t even realize it.
Are you at all familiar with Rene Girard’s mimetic theory of desire? It’s an explanation for the phenomenon of people getting cues from others about what to value, including cues about beliefs. When stuff blows up on the mob of copycats, the mechanism for correction involves finding a scapegoat and funneling all their collective rage at it. Anyway, kind of a the same thing you outlined but in different packaging.
I just read an interesting article about how to tell someone their spouse has died suddenly and avoid being punched hard on the chin, which happened to the messenger in this case. So instead, they called in a nurse who was used to dealing with the bereaved.
“The nurse was using questions rather than statements… and listening to the answers, treading softly step by step as the conversation developed to steer the woman towards grasping the reality of her bereavement. How had her husband been when he went to work that morning? Had he been worrying about his health? Had she, as his wife, thought something was wrong too?”
This gentle, questioning approach might work better than “FFS just look at the data!” because I do think that there will be a sense of bereavement when the Normies finally wake up.

Most Americans have Stockholm Syndrome – a Whopper case.
There were only 3.5 million Jewish people living in Europe at the beginning of World War 2.
Yet Holocaust-ianity is like a Religion.
Most Americans have been very thoroughly indoctrinated, in some key respects.
#4 “The Dissolution of Eastern European Jewry”, by Walter Sanning.
Census Historian Walter Sanning dissects & analyzes historical data about WW2 Europe. He makes the point authoritatively enough to convince the Head Rabbi at Auschwitz to change the Cast Iron sign at the entrance to the historical site.
There were only 3.5 Million Jewish people in Europe at the beginning of World War 2, and they were migrating to the US & Israel at the rate of 1100 persons a day.
Yet Americans are convinced, “oh no, 6 million”.
“Why do so many people still buy into the narrative?” indeed.
Early in a young machinists career this advice is offered –
“The iron doesn’t lie”
It is no mystery at all.
Any, organic, human population shall always display this phenomenon.
Those with aggressive intellectual prowess will always ponder why those, who do not, are so easily swept up by irrational, emotionally driven, social reactions, to any carefully propagandized perception of threat.
All that is needed to manipulate any population is to convince them they are being profoundly threatened, then provide them with a path to take, which lets them avoid, or eliminate, that threat.
The vast bulk of people are simply not that educated, not that smart, not in control of their emotional flux, and not that willing, and not that rational…to fend off an emotional propaganda campaign, which specifically targets them.
Those who CAN are always a fairly tiny minority…and such simply do not have the votes. This is why we wished to live in a Republic, not a pure Democracy, which is subordinated to the Rights of the Individual….as we have always known the majority is quite stupid..and easy to manipulate.
The Founders were trying to make America safe for THEM to live in, with protections against the ignorant masses, in such a way….the best could flourish, and evil intellects would be hampered as much as possible…in any attempt to grab power over others. It worked for a time. But, evil has been chipping away for a few hundred years now…..
This is like the “war on terror” all over again.
1) Being confronted with a “mortal threat” to everyone.
2) A very small percentage are killed by the mortal threat to everyone.
3) The contradiction between 1) and 2) does not occur to the broad populace.
4) There is call to give up basic civil liberties which will supposedly be “temporary.”
5) The meme is pushed that the problem will be with us for a long term.
6) The contradiction between 4) and 5) does not occur to the broad populace.
7) There is rank profiteering by large corporations who are given carte blanche to loot the treasury without any accountability whatsoever.
8) There is a coordinated media push in support of the proffered narrative.
9) Broad swarths of the population not only join the narrative but vocally “virtue signal” their support of it.
10) Dissenters from the narrative are demonized.
11) People whose actions may have caused or contributed to the “mortal threat” are lionized as great patriots or heroes.
It is the exact same thing that happened 20 years ago. Only the topic has changed. In both cases the threat was real. But the response was insanely out of proportion to the actual threat and served multiple agendas of the PTB.
