"Four things need to be in place if you want a large-scale mass phenomenon to emerge. The first thing is that there need to be a lot of (1) socially isolated people, people who experience a lack of social bond. The second one is that there need to be (2) a lot of people who experience a lack of sense-making in life. The third and the fourth conditions are there needs to be (3) a lot of free-floating anxiety, and (4) a lot of free-floating psychological discontent—meaning anxiety and discontent that is not connected to specific representations. It needs to be in the mind without people being able to connect it to something. If you have these four things... then society is highly at risk for the emergence of mass phenomena, and these four conditions existed shortly before the corona crisis."
