You and I live in a dystopian nightmare. We traverse a world of madness that howls from every TV, PC and cell phone – while brain-eating delusions consume the minds of friends and family. Our neighbors and coworkers bellow their infected thoughts across Facebook and Twitter, and shriek in outrage if we disagree. And, when one mass delusion dies away, another quickly takes its place.
History is full of mass delusions, but they have never been this widespread. For the first time in history, more than a billion people are terrified of one thing. And, I think that we should talk about this Madness of Babylon.

The Madness of Babylon
Everyone knows the story of the Tower of Babel. If you don’t, go here:
It couldn’t have been built more than a century (or so) after The Great Flood, ‘cuz the ancient civilizations of the world didn’t arise until AFTER God scattered them. So, in such a short amount of time, there couldn’t have been all that many people building this pyramid or ziggurat.
Maybe there were a few hundred people working on this?
Even if we doubled the population every 20 years (which is really hard to do), we’d go from six to twelve to twenty four to forty eight to ninety six to one hundred ninety two in a century. By the end of the second century, you’d hit about six thousand.
Have you seen any towns of six thousand create anything like a gigantic tower without heavy machinery?
There couldn’t have been too many thousands, since there’s a limit to how many kids, grandkids, great grandkids and great-great grandkids (and so on) you could have over the course of a century or so. This also means that the ziggurat/pyramid/tower that they were building couldn’t have been all that large. They might have planned something huge, but they wouldn’t have gotten all that far by the time God put a stop to it. Also remember that the people working on this pyramid still have to plant and gather food, raise children and maintain your own housing.
By the way, the difference between pyramid and ziggurat is language. Pyramid comes from Egyptian -> Greek -> Latin -> French to… now. Ziggurat is Assyrian. They both mean the same thing, but I think that the mental picture of a pyramid is somewhat more accurate.
Yeah. I know. All those pictures of the ‘Tower of Babel’. Sorry, but it just ain’t so. And, it’s good to sometimes remember that the pictures in our head often don’t correspond to what actually happened. Yes, there was a ‘Tower of Babel’, but it wasn’t anywhere close to as big as the Egyptian pyramids. And, we’re missing the point, anyway, if your focus is on big buildings.
Don’t Focus On The Tower
What was the point?
Here it is in verse six:
And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
– Genesis 11:6 (NKJV)
It’s the part where they were ‘one’. Unified. A single nation with a consuming purpose. And, that was a problem.
‘Cuz when you get enough of them together, they go nuts.
Of course, my definition of ‘going nuts’ is all about sin. There is nothing more insane than sinning against God. In fact, it is probably a leading cause of madness – especially at the society level. Just be careful about accusing people of being sinful because they suffer from emotional or psychological problems. That’s stupid, and it doesn’t help. But, back to Babel…
So, this tower wasn’t all that big, and there weren’t all that many people building it. Furthermore, they were building it out of mud brick. So, none of that sounds all that impressive. But, God knew where this was going, and it needed to be stopped before it got ugly.
TRANSLATION NOTE- Oh, and one other thing. The ‘Tower of Babel’ was in Shinar, but there’s no indication that the Tower of Babel was located in or around the city of Babylon. But, since the Hebrew word for Babylon and Babel is the same (בבל – pronounced bah-vehl), the confusion is reasonable. And, that ‘Babylonish garment’ that Achan took from the fall of Jericho (Joshua 7:21) was not from Babylon. The Hebrew word that Achan used was Shinar (שנער – pronounced sheen-ahr).
Actually, the growing ugliness wasn’t stopped. Only delayed. As God predicted, the world has come together and a new kind of Tower of Babel is rising, and some of the most powerful leaders of our world are trying to make us all one people again.
Our Tower Of Babel
Fortunately, they’ve only had limited success. They started out with the ‘League of Nations’, which quickly fell apart. They tried again with the ‘United Nations’, which only survives as talking shop for bureaucrats. They set up commissions and organizations and committees and forums, and none of them have resulted in the ‘tower’ that they are looking for.
Then they hit on this ‘Global Warming’ thing. A few people shouted “Hurrah!” and built expensive windmills that only work on Tuesdays. But, aside from a bit of intermittent electricity and Tesla cars, it has been yet another failure.
So, what was a good globalist to do?
Then came their ‘salvation’. A lab tech spilled a tray of test tubes in Wuhan, and the perfect pandemic was born. Terrifying cell phone videos of old people collapsing in the streets of China swept through the Internet. Bad data and poorly written computer models created hysterical headlines claiming The End Of The World As We Know It.
It was madness, and they loved it.
Klaus Schwab and his rat’s nest of globalists jumped for joy. It was their moment in the sun. They trotted out their ‘healthcare professionals’ and turbo-charged the media. Companies tottering on the brink of failure were pulled back from the abyss and given the job of creating vaccines.
In the process they terrified a billion people.
And, there’s something interesting that happens when you get people so hyper-focused on one thing:
You can hypnotize them and get them to do ANYTHING.
It’s this hypnotism that they are using to build this new ‘Tower of Babel’. Unfortunately, is following a dark and terrible path that always ends in genocide. Many have been pointing out that something wicked this way comes, but it was Dr. Mattias Desmet that has described how it happens and how it always ends. And, it was Robert Malone who pointed me to Dr. Desmet.
Dr. Robert Malone
Here’s a 13 minute clip from Dr. Robert Malone, the original inventor of mRNA vaccine technology:
I’m not sure where that clip is from, but it probably came from one of the podcasts that you can find on his page, here:
But, it’s not his mRNA expertise that you need to listen to. It’s his understanding of where the hysteria and madness is taking us. And, one of these ‘things’ is something called Mass Formation Psychosis. And, that’s a term from Mattias Desmet – a Professor of Clinical Psychology at Ghent University, Belgium. But, before we get to Dr. Desmet, let’s stick with the YouTube video above.
In 2019, everyone was fragmented. Social connections were broken. People suffered from free floating anxiety. People were feeling discontent. Society was sick.
Then, the virus swept the world.
The hysteria from this lab leak got everyone to focus on one small thing, and that hypnotized them. And, not just ‘them’. Society. Society was focused on one small thing, and they lost all sense of judgment and the ability to think. Society became hypnotized.
Then, Dr. Malone made one statement that should make a shiver run straight through you:
Global totalitarianism is unavoidable.
Dr. Mattias Desmet
Then yesterday, I heard Dr. Mattias Desmet speak, here:
Here’s how the video starts out, and it’s a fascinating point:
The real reason why people buy into the story, even if it is utterly absurd, is not because they believe in the narrative. It is because the narrative leads to the new social bond.
When this pandemic began, Dr. Desmet quickly saw that the problem wasn’t medical, but psychological. However, it wasn’t until he wrote a paper on ‘mass formation’ in August of 2020, that he realized what the problem was. Here is where he talks about what Mass Formation is:
I was just going to leave you there, and let you listen to the video. But, I’m afraid that this has so many obviously prophetic implications that I feel the need to go into more detail about what this professor said.
The Four Conditions
Desmet said that there were four conditions needed to create the environment that we are now in, conditions that existed prior to COVID:
Loneliness and lack of connection – For instance, in the United States in 2019, 50 percent of people said that they had no meaningful relationships in their life.
Meaninglessness or a lack of ‘sense-making’ – Most people indicated that they felt that their job was meaningless and that their life didn’t make sense – a situation that Dr. Desmet said began more than two hundred years ago.
Free Floating Anxiety – Before the coronavirus we have abnormally high levels of anxiety without a concrete object for anxiousness. We had reports that one out of five was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
Free Floating Aggression – Like ‘free floating anxiety’, they won’t know WHY they feel aggressive, but they feel it.
Once The Mass Formation Psychosis Begins
According to Dr. Desmet, now that we have these four conditions, people will search for something that they can connect their anxiety and frustration to. This is where the mass media distributes a narrative that provides an object for everyone’s anxiety and provides a strategy for dealing with that anxiety.
Once people are drawn into participating in this strategy, a new kind of social bond emerges – a new kind of solidarity. People feel connected again. It resolves the loneliness and lack of connection. Think of the insane movements that we have been struggling with over the past few years – LGBTQ, CRT, BLM, Global Warming, Climate Change, and on and on and onnnnn.
Once the ‘problem’ has been introduced and the ‘strategy’ laid out, all the aggression that people are feeling can be targeted at those who are not participating in the Mass Formation Psychosis – in this case, those who are not choosing to be vaccinated. Anyone who opposes ‘the group’, then becomes the target of the anger and frustration that had been building up in everyone’s life, for years.
We’ve Seen This Before
Dr. Desmet mentioned three examples:
The French Revolution
The Communist Revolution in Russia
The rise of Nazi Germany
I’m betting that you could add others. Certainly the Chinese Communist Revolution, the rise of Islam, and the Khmer Rouge communists in Cambodia where also examples. Oh, and they all involved mass murder. All of them.
The Thirty Percent
But here’s an interesting point. Only 30% of a society will be directly involved in this Mass Formation Psychosis. Forty or fifty percent will just go along with the masses. And, only about 10 or 20 percent will not be hypnotized and will want to speak out. For the 30% actively supporting this Mass Formation Psychosis, the more absurd the measure, the more inclined they will be to support and follow it. Ridiculous and absurd requirements will become important rituals, even a sacred duty – to the point of even sacrificing their children.
It’s exactly like hypnosis. Like when someone is hypnotized, you could take everything away, and the person under Mass Formation Psychosis won’t notice. Even if you take his life. And, when Chris Martenson brought up susceptibility of people to hypnosis, Dr. Desmet said that 80 percent of people are susceptible in some way to hypnotism. He also said that intelligent people are just as susceptible to hypnosis as the non-intelligent.
Unfortunately, the Thirty Percent always go on to commit atrocities if they aren’t stopped. They are convinced that what they are doing is for the greater good of the collective. It is almost a sacred duty. And, the atrocities always begin when the opposition is silenced. This means you should not ever shut up about this. Never.
Now, here’s the part that most people have a hard time accepting. And, I find this blindness to be interesting:
The leaders of this Mass Formation Psychosis are hypnotized by they own ideology
The people that are leading this madness actually believe that what they are doing is for the ‘greater good’. Yes, they knowingly engage is lies and half-truths, but it all for a higher purpose in their own eyes. They believe in what they are doing, even when they engage in mass murder.
I know that this is hard for people to understand and accept. We like to think of these movements as being led by people who have utterly vile motives, that their purpose really was all about the mass murder that they caused. But, the reality is far, far more dangerous than people with a taste for bloodshed.
The true blue fanatic will always kill more people than the craven murderer. They will get more people to do their dirty work. More people will support them. Even many of their victims will be loyal to their tormentors, even as they are tortured and abused.
Two Positive Notes
It’s hard to know if the current Mass Formation Psychosis will lead to mass murder and genocide. I think that there is enough resistance to keep this from happening. But, there will be a next time. And, one of these days, a Mass Formation Psychosis will succeed and atrocities will sweep the world. And no, I’m not talking about the Antichrist, even though he will be remarkably similar.
So, until the Antichrist arrives, there are two positive elements that we can look to that will spell the end of a Mass Formation Psychosis that leads to Totalitarianism that couldn’t be stopped:
Totalitarianism always destroys itself.
The best strategy is ALWAYS non-violent resistance. ALWAYS.
The problem is that it takes time for totalitarianism to burn itself out, and it’s hard to watch it happen. We always want to ‘fight fire with fire’, but that’s what they need you to do. From the outside, you can defend your borders and even go to war – like we did with Nazi Germany. But, from the inside… you just can’t.
I find it interesting that most people who are calling for revolution and civil war, have no idea what that means. America won its revolution because the Atlantic stood between the colonies and Britain – and also because British soldiers didn’t like shooting colonists.
Oh, and here are two writers that Dr. Desmet refers to:
You should be able get their works online for free. Oh, and there’s one that I can add:
Charles Mackay – Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds
That book is also free and should be required reading for anyone who thinks that humanity isn’t crazy. We’re all insane, and history is proof.
Back To The Madness Of Babylon
For those of you who see that the world has gone mad, you’re right. But, it’s the same kind of madness that caused God to shatter the aspirations of humanity at the Tower of Babel. It’s the same madness that is bringing us to the fulfillment of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and the Beast system of the books of Daniel and Revelation.
I believe that God will smash this madness into pieces. I just finished a huge rewrite of the way that God will do this:
And, I am about to go back to editing the book that describes when it will happen:
When Gog Comes
The madness of Babylon will be pushed back by Ezekiel’s Fire and then defeated when Jesus Returns. But, it will be very, very hard to watch and live through.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
