DISCUSS: “Mass Psychosis” Trending on Twitter

Why do you ask? Did the interview give you the impression that Malone exploited the subject of Mass Formation Pychosis?

So much of what Malone says is carefully organized; he makes sure to stay away from conjecture, and makes it explicit when he is and is not citing studies vs. talking from personal experience, etc.

When they shifted to talking about our current circumstances as a society, he said very matter of factly that mass formation psychosis is indeed the situation in which we find ourselves, and took a much less scientifically rigorous tack. That ended up bookending the whole conversation, which would of course naturally serve as some sort of validation of a particular narrative.

There's an interesting tension there because so much of what Malone addressed that was specific to the COVID aspects of the conversation were from a very different angle.

I may have missed a transition in the conversation, and should let him off the hook, but I'm also just being a little contrarian to create some conversation.

I didn't know the term was trending on Twitter. What were people talking about?

I used to be very contrarian in my past, so I do understand you; however, I have learned that being contrarian fuels more argument than conversation.

I didn't know about the Twitter thing either, as I have been following Malone long before he became trendy. And it was actually Rogan who put the word out to his huge audience to share what Malone said about Mass Formation Psychosis, which is not really based on science, but rather sociology. And Malone did give credit to the concept's originator.

Rogan tends to jump from topic to topic, as 3 hours is plenty of time to cover lots of issues.

I believe Malone has good intentions, and is genuinely concerned about humanity. And his speaking out is costing him more woes than joys or gains.
