Groupthink can live an incredibly long time without any consciousness of its problems. Only crisis and suffering may arouse at least some of the minds. This is why the masses are intellectually lazy and spoiled. Social ceremonials, confession, the servile media, all often appease the deeper conscience and lull the people into a pseudo-peaceful slumber.

Nevertheless …in a mood of panic, especially, every suggestion is imbued with tremendous power. The wish and the fear determine all opinions. Even under invasion from hostile sources the population refuses to believe that its communities, cities, and towns are being destroyed by the invaders. They interpreted the devastation as a cowardly revenge of the (new) occupier. –Delusion and Mass Delusion, (1949). A.M. Meerloo M.D.
