The Madness of Babylon

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:

Genesis 11

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:

Billions Of People Are Affected By This & They Don’t Realize It | Dr. Robert Malone 2021

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:

Mattias Desmet on Our Grave Situation

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.

The Leadership

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:

Gustave Le Bon

Hannah Arendt

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:

Ezekiel’s Fire

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

  1. ‘Mass formation’ is the absolute best explanation of what is going on that I have heard yet IMO. I sent a similar video by the professor out last week. Sadly few will listen to the message but it doesn’t take a majority to make a change, just a few committed people to push back and keep on pushing. We can do this!! All things are possible with God!

    Thank you for your post.

    Come quickly Lord Jesus!!

  2. Welcome back brother, I trust your health is improving.
    I do miss your insights, but please do take care of yourself and Mrs Little.
    The Lord bless you both.

    Gosh your on point once again.
    Interesting take on the Tower of Babel, I have to confess the image that had been impressed into my mind was one of a massive structure. On reflection I have to admit that was an image constructed from the teachers and other Christians whom I have read and listened too since my salvation. It’s amazing how we can be impressed with how a passage reads or the image it presents and then read said passage over and over imprinting that image rather than actually read what Gods word states. So where did that image of a big structure come from? People who used non biblical sources to justify their interpretations.

    In other words, they applied the Bible to their ideological/philosophical ideas and twisted the Bible to fit their perception. Rather than applying their ideas to the Bible and seeing if they fit the Biblical narrative.

    Sadly we still see this playing out today, where people are taking the signs of the times and once again twisting Gods word to fit their perception of reality. Thus we get Christians claiming things like ‘microchips in the vaccine will make you lose your salvation’, or ‘the vaccines are the mark of the beast!’.

    Now I find it interesting that the vaccine is taken in the upper arm…. where as Gods word states the mark of the Beast shall be received on the right hand, or forehead. Now Satan cannot create, but he can counterfeit. Revelation 7:3 the Angels are told not to harm the earth, or the sea, or the trees until the bond-servants of God are sealed on their foreheads. 7:4 then details the 144,000 to be sealed from the Sons of Israel. Ezekiel 9:4 see’s those in Israel who repent of the sin in Jerusalem marked with a seal on their foreheads. In Deuteronomy the Israelite’s are commanded to bind the laws on their wrists and foreheads. As I understand things the right hand in Judaism is seen as representing blessings, power and strength. So it would make sense that Satan would see his symbol placed on the forehead and right hand as a counterfeit to deceive people into thinking himself god. No-where does it mention anything about the mark of the beast in the arm

    Is the whole vaccine mandate thing a pre-cursor to the beast system as many believe? Could be; but again people are making the bible fit the times, rather than looking at the Word and seeing if the times fit it. Personally I don’t see anything in society today that seems to fit what God has written – yet.

    But beyond that is the palpable fear in Christian circles about the times we live in. You reference Klaus Schwab, and he features greatly in those fears. Sure there is a lot in the transhumanist agenda to be concerned about, but I have one simple question. Where in the Bible does it talk about it, state it comes to pass and that it affects our salvation? Because as yet, no one has been able to show me a single verse – in context – that indicates anything like Schwab’s agenda comes to pass; and I think you hit the nail on the head when you note Ezekial’s fire. God the Father will not allow this to come to pass, His will is the only one that will be done.

    But in the meantime I see more and more Christians calling for a resistance, a revolution… and I have to agree completely with you. The unsaved world is being hypnotized into following a path; and those opposing that path (including many in the Christian community). Have we learned nothing from the Qanon psyop that led many down a path which led to ruin? Even now many of our brothers and sisters still put their faith in political figures seeking salvation from the age we live in…. desperate to feel a sense of belonging, of family, as you note a deeper sense of connection. I cannot help but think that our deconstruction of the Christian faith to ‘Sunday worship’ has pushed us into a deep sense of loneliness compared to the early church that was one big family. But rather than seek to come together around our love for Jesus and the Father, we want to come together around political ideology and create our own version of Eden on this Earth.

    In the end is this why so many will take the mark of the Beast? Because he offers that sense of community, of belonging, of connection? How many will lose their salvation because they have confused ‘church religion’ for relationship with the Father.

    • Hi Peter Makin,

      You always raise excellent points, so I’m glad to see your comments.

      Yes, there is no foundation for any of these claims that the Antichrist is at hand. I get why they make claims like this. It’s understandable for people to believe this as our world descends into chaos. But, error is error, and we should do everything that we can to avoid it.

      We must watch for the sign posts and mile markers that tell us where we are in these Last Days. There are things that MUST HAPPEN before the Antichrist begins his campaign of domination, and Bible teachers are either forgetting this, or never knew it in the first place.

      Well done, as always, Peter. Excellent comment.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. You can add the Salem witch trials to the “madness of the crowd” list. Right here in America.

    The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 were a dark time in American history. More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft and 20 were killed during the hysteria.

    Ever since those dark days ended, the trials have become synonymous with mass hysteria and scapegoating.

    In addition to this constant sense of fear, Salem residents were also under a great deal of stress…

    Sound familiar?

  4. I pray brother John that you can be able to do what God wants from you and you have peace
    The greatest deception i was a litlle bit in it but a sister from the Netherlands warned me about great deception in the truth movement about vaccines
    I did bought my mac computer so warned just on time before i would connect myself with these people and be thrown away with them later on

    Gods blessing
    Sister nadine

  5. A few things:

    JOHN – did you get my email? About ivermectin working on leukemia? Are you taking ivermectin ???

    Vaccine and Mark of the Beast – I don’t think the vaccine itself is, but as with much of the enemy’s tactics he gets closer and closer to his concealed goal by increments. Because if he made it blatantly obvious from the get-go, he’d lose much of his attempted capture. I am just now reading that in Sweden and other places in Europe, they are doing a chip in the hand to prove vaccinated status. And no doubt there will be a whole lot more in that chip than they tell us.

    Salem witch trials: I didn’t read the link so I don’t know if it was mentioned there, but in terms of real science that gets ignored – in Salem’s case because they didn’t understand it, but who knows what kind of corruption might have ensued if they did – there had been a year of bad crops, which forced them to eat grain leftover from previous years, which had absorbed moisture and was growing a form of reddish mold; it was stated in records of the time that bread baked with it also showed a reddish tinge at times, which was thought to be a sign of the devil. But they had nothing else to eat so they ate it. And this mold was toxic, it did nerve damage, the symptoms of which were consistent with much of the stuff they blamed on possession by or consorting with the devil.

    Crazier and crazier, this world, but we knew that. Hang in there everybody.

    • Hi DRG,

      Ouch. Your email. I saw it, and started thinking about it. And, I thought so much that I didn’t respond. I do that a lot, and it’s not very smart.

      I will need to think this through. My initial research into this has been difficult because Ivermectin is being touted everywhere as a response to COVID, drowning out the stuff about CLL. Also, getting a doctor to prescribe Ivermectin here in Taiwan could be a challenge since they require a prescription for even something like Maalox. I’m coming to believe that my current oncologist is a moron, and will be looking to find someone who thinks outside of standard operating procedures.

      We’ll see. Blood test in a couple weeks, so we’ll find out if I’m still okay.

      The Vaccine thing. Yes, this is more about the system than the injection. Worse, they are perfecting their ability to manipulate people into doing what they want. And doing it on a global scale. Hopefully, the current system will lose some of its power as COVID mutates into something more benign, taking away some of the manipulative power that government has. But, I’m not optimistic. There’s always something.

      Your point about the Salem Witch Trials is interesting. I just did a quick search, and many do think that Ergot could have been an initial source. Then, once the hysteria took hold, they wouldn’t have needed much more of it to keep going. Once a mass psychosis takes hold, it’s hard to shake.

      Excellent comment, DRG. We’ll see how all this plays out.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. Hi John, thanks so much for speaking about mass psychosis. It’s very important for people to understand what is happening so we can try and speak to those who are ‘hypnotized’ and your summary is excellent.

    Just wanted to comment–I’m really missing your links to articles of interest. I think perhaps you post them on twitter? But I try to avoid most social platforms these days, too much of a time sucker.
    Praying for your healing.

    • Thank you, Anna! In a couple weeks, I’ll know more about my CLL. But yes, hypnotism. We need to avoid that. From ANY direction. The Holy Spirit is the ONLY influence that I want. I’m not happy with Twitter. I’m thinking of ways to get good links out. – JL

  7. Desmet said in the january 2022 interview with Malone…and it was the first thing he said…
    “I didnt use the term mass formation psychosis, I prefer the term mass formation because, in my opinion as a clinical psychologist you have to be very careful with using diagnostic terms, because they can easily have stigmatizing meaning and from ethical and pragmatic perspective can be a little bit counter productive“
    I would say not a little bit but potentially a lot…
    So you wrote in your article
    …something called Mass Formation Psychosis. And, that’s a term from Mattias Desmet…
    thats wrong info. Desmet would not like his name associated with labeling 30 percent of the population psychotic. that was Malone who said it on Joe Rogan and its spreading now. and Malone used the term twice in his introduction monolog during that interview and then, when Desmet corrected him with the remark i quoted earlier, Malone said that Bret Weinstein told him the same thing half an hour before, that basically that term (psychosis) “creates a barrier to compehencion and exeptance of the the theory by those who might be scared to use the term“… so he already was told that it creates a barrier and he continued to use it and he also posted that conversation with Desmet on his page and named it using that term. Calling him self a humble student of “the master“ on this subject but then distorting the message of Desmet. I could go on about the many red flags about Malone if anybody is interested but for now please take this remark of Desmet into consideration when you use this VERY important concept in your words and works.

    • I’m afraid that this is a distinction without a difference. Yes, Desmet coined the term ‘Mass Formation’, but since he’s referring to a psychosis, it is appropriate to add the extra word for clarity. This is a psychosis Alice, and we all need to understand that. – JL
