How Big Tech Hypnotizes the Masses

Happy New Year! Thank you for being a subscriber and thank you in advance for your continued support. I am producing a reboot of my video series – “The Jim Stroud Show” which will be featured online and on a new network – Conservative Television of America! Check them out for my show and other great content. Yay!

Now because of my video series, I will be decreasing how often I write my newsletter. Forgive me, I don’t know if it will continue to be daily in 2022. However, it will continue! So, stick around for more articles, podcasts and videos (especially videos) in 2022.

I now refer you to my latest newsletter. Enjoy and pass it on.

How Big Tech Hypnotizes the Masses

You ever have a sense that something is wrong but, you can’t put your finger on it? Its like being told not to believe what you are seeing and being lauded when following an obvious fable. To use a movie analogy, life outside of “The Matrix” can be an anguish-filled existence yet you endure because you know at your heart’s deepest parts that you are not insane; no matter innumerable arguments to the contrary. If this resonates with you then the term – “mass formation psychosis” is something you should study. Dr. Robert Malone, a virologist and immunologist who pioneered mRNA technology, has brought the term into the mainstream. Here is a quote from his blog where he discusses the term.

As many of you know, I have spent time researching and speaking about mass psychosis theory. Most of what I have learned has come from Dr. Mattias Desmet, who realized that this form of mass hypnosis, of the madness of crowds, can account for the strange phenomenon of about 20-30% of the population in the western world becoming entranced with the Noble Lies and dominant narrative concerning the safety and effectiveness of the genetic vaccines, and both propagated and enforced by politicians, science bureaucrats, pharmaceutical companies and legacy media.

What one observes with the mass hypnosis is that a large fraction of the population is completely unable to process new scientific data and facts demonstrating that they have been misled about the effectiveness and adverse impacts of mandatory mask use, lockdowns, and genetic vaccines that cause people’s bodies to make large amounts of biologically active coronavirus Spike protein.

These hypnotized by this process are unable to recognize the lies and misrepresentations they are being bombarded with on a daily basis, and actively attack anyone who has the temerity to share information with them which contradicts the propaganda that they have come to embrace. And for those whose families and social networks have been torn apart by this process, and who find that close relatives and friends have ghosted them because they question the officially endorsed “truth” and are actually following the scientific literature, this can be a source of deep anguish, sorrow and psychological pain.

It is with those souls in mind that I included a discussion of the mass formation theory of Dr. Mattias Desmet during a recent talk I gave in Tampa, Florida to an audience of about 2,000. As I looked out into the audience and spoke, I could see relief on many faces, and even tears running from the eyes of stoic men.

Unknown to me, someone recorded the speech and appended the vocal track to a series of calming images of natural landscapes, producing a video that has gone viral throughout the world. A link to the video, as well as some notes to clarify and supplement the talk are appended below. Many have told me that they find it very healing. I hope it may help you also.

I had not heard the term mass psychosis theory before Dr. Robert Malone mentioned it on Joe Rogan’s podcast and as a result, introduced it to the mainstream. Yet, it makes a lot of sense. I noticed how clever Google was in manipulating the population with its search engine results years ago and even made a video about it. I was so angry by what I discovered that I became a power user of DuckDuckGo and other search engines thereafter. Check out my video below to see what I mean.

My video was produced in 2018. Has Google stopped this practice? Not at all. Check out this video on how the search engine manipulated the search results for the phrase – mass formation psychosis. Oh, the irony.

Changing search results to get you to think a certain way is only one tactic of population control. A more popular measure is straight out censorship. Consider just two recent examples. Dr. Malone disagrees with the media narrative on vaccines and as a result, his Twitter account has been permanently deactivated. Here is a quote from Blaze Media.

In a post on Substack Wednesday, [Dr. Malone] wrote that his Twitter account had over half a million followers when it was permanently suspended.

“Over a half million followers gone in a blink of an eye. That means I must have been on the mark, so to speak. Over the target. It also means we lost a critical component in our fight to stop these vaccines being mandated for children and to stop the corruption in our governments, as well as the medical-industrial complex and pharmaceutical industries,” Malone wrote.

He did not give a specific reason for his suspension. A Twitter spokesperson said Malone’s account was permanently suspended for “repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy.”

And here is another example, this one concerning Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. This quote comes from Reclaim The Net.

Facebook’s decision to throttle Greene comes less than 24 hours after her permanent suspension from Twitter resulted in her losing access to the 465,000 followers she had built on that platform.

“Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me,” Greene said in response to Facebook’s restriction of her account. “This is beyond censorship of speech. I’m an elected Member of Congress representing over 700,000 US tax paying citizens and I represent their voices, values, defend their freedoms, and protect the Constitution.”

Greene blasted both platforms for flagging information from VAERS as “misinformation,” called out Facebook and Twitter for acting as “authorities of information and misinformation,” and warned that “when Big Tech decides what political speech of elected Members is accepted and what’s not then they are working against our government and against the interest of our people.”

At best, the efforts of big tech to police free speech is the folly of well-meaning people and at worst, it is tyrannical. In either case, they do their cause a disservice. Ideas should be brought to light and debated and the notions that are sound will prevail. However, if ideas are silenced and removed from scrutiny then they are merely being validated. This is why I HATE censorship. It makes bad ideas seem virtuous and shields ideologues from having to substantiate their convictions with facts for fear of being disillusioned or discredited. It does us all a disservice.

Be skeptical.

Do research.

Reject groupthink.

Trust sparingly.


I will be rebooting my video series shortly.
