The COVID-19 Mass Delusional Psychosis

Dr. Mark MacDonald makes the case that society has suffering from “mass delusional psychosis” where delusion is defined as believing something that doesn’t conform with reality. Many in society are experiencing the trauma of exaggerated fear response brought on by false information. S.G. Chea writes:

“Even when the statistics point to the extremely low fatality rate among children and young adults (measuring 0.002% at age 10 and 0.01% at 25), the young and the healthy are still terrorized by the chokehold of irrational fear when faced with the coronavirus,”

According to Mercola: “We must embrace courage, truth, honesty and freedom, not just in our thoughts and words but also in our actions. As noted by McDonald in the featured interview, people cannot think logically when in a state of delusional psychosis, hence sharing information, facts, data and evidence tends to be ineffective except in cases where the person was acting out of peer pressure rather than a delusional belief. Typically, the best you can do is stand firm and act in alignment with truth and objective reality, much like you would if you were a first responder faced with an accident victim who is responding hysterically to what you know is only a minor injury.”

I couple this summary article provided by Dr. Mercola with another that offers compelling evidence that the CDC changed the basis for counting fatalities but only for COVID, thus inflating the COVID fatality numbers.
