we have not really covered a lot of psychology yet in kittengarten, so please forgive me if this is a silly question to which most people already know the answer, but would this be considered “mass formation”?
because even if this is only half right, it kind of seems like a pretty big mass…
Every single trucker in Canada and the US doing this is a hero. Personally, I will cope with empty shelves if it will put an end to these insane mandates on ALL workers, even those in health care.
There have been many Canadians who have been trying to bring the truth to light over the last 18 months or so, but it has been exceedingly difficult to achieve without a critical mass of awareness. Thankyou to the truckers who are finally achieving this!
(and SHAME on the cowardly corrupt unions who allowed for workers rights to be trampled)
What a wonderful day for Canada, and therefore of course, the world. As is tradition.
I’m a Canadian and through my tears of absolute joy I can’t express how truly grateful and proud of these truckers, 500,000 Canadians, American truckers support and everybody else coming together as one voice for freedom from mandates! Whatever it takes to make these single-minded idiots in office wake up - go guys!
Mass formation, but I don't think it's a psychosis. In fact, it's the answer to the psychosis, a good dose of reality.
So happy to see the Canadian truckers telling Trudeau where to put it. Even happier their American colleagues are stepping into help. This is a fight for our lives our Children’s lives and grandchildren’s lives.💕
The US truckers are going to block the border! There are literally only a handful of border checkpoints for trucks.
It's going to be a lot of rice and beans for dinner but I'll take it.
Canadians are a mostly rule following liberal voter tell me how woke you need me today... I've had enough. Yet I AM STILL the only one I see not wearing a mask to the grocery store, bank, beer store, liquor store etc etc. COME ON PEOPLE WAKE UP.
I stood on an overpass for hours the other night waiting for them to pass. They were late hitting Calgary in the wee hours of the night, the government opened up every weigh scale on the route to hinder them. There journey will be filled with obstacles the government throws at them, but there is so much support along the way. Home made meals, come to my house for a shower, donated fuel. I will pray every day for them, and never look at a truck the same way again.
Perhaps I'm getting to the overwrought stage myself, but when I first read about the truckers I felt my throat thickening. These people who kept North America alive during the first hysteria, who were on the road keeping us fed and able to wipe our asses the new-fashioned way while worried to death about their own families, are now intransigent threats to two nations' wellbeing? Gonna use my newest favorite phrase again: God rot the authorities and may it take a long, painful time.
Am I the only hard, cynical old American lady weeping over this? Canadians, you are inspiring. God bless you, truckers and friends!❤
The CBC reported in a tweet that the convoy was protesting bad road conditions, as if people couldn't see the huge anti-mandate and lockdown signs on all the trucks. The Canadian media's Let's Go Brandon moment. 🤡
Supposedly 10k American trucks heading up to support as well.
There! Those are the Canadians we all love!
As an American living here in Canada I had truly lost hope. Now I respect Canadians again and feel joy and pride in…BOTH countries! A truly historic moment in time.
This simultaneously brought a tear to my eye and made me yell "FUCK YEAH!"
Bullying: always push back. I have never once, in my whole life, seen it NOT work. By not pushing back, we are condoning.
To be clear to rest of the world watching; this is as much a protest against the completely illegal vexx “mandates” as it is a protest against a treasonous corrupt woke cowardly narcissistic divisive beta intellectually-challenged most-despised crime minister ever. RESIGN!!
Wow--so awesome! About the time you are ready to give up on humanity, a kitten and half a million Canadians renew your faith in mankind (and kittenkind too- LOL)!!
The gofundme for the the truckers is up to $4.5 million CDN
here's an idea. all truckers refuse deliveries to D.C.
Go Truckers ! Bless each and every one of you ..
speaking of “mass formation” - its so funny its being “debunked” as a concept, when its simpler synonym “group think” is a well known concept.
One of the truckers had 'Truck Trudeau' written on the 42' long box of his truck.
I never thought seeing a bunch of trucks could make me cry like a baby
From a Canuck friend yesterday:
on the road to freedom...
You bet. Sounds like a mass formation indeed!
If anyone's interested, I consider mass formation psychosis from a psychological point of view here. I'm a psych professor.
They raised 4.6 millions in a couple of days and the gofundme is still active. Incredible.
God bless those truckers, each and every one.
I would say the opposite is happening here. Those who were never part of the mass formation, and those who have recovered from it, are uniting in a revolution against the psychotic dictatorial leadership in this country.
Yes. But only if you sub "Fury" for "psychosis "
These truckers are an inspiration to us all! This is the very spirit of our fight. I can only hope it spreads far and wide while I pray for their safety.
Yesterday I told the cashier at the supermarket that I was stocking up for Xiden's supply chain disruptions. She looked scared & mumbled "I know" from under her mask. Then I told her what was happening in Canada. Dumbstruck! She had absolutely no idea, which told me 1. they're fully cognizant that up to date it's been *Xiden* policy and 2. They have no idea what's coming (or not coming) this way!
Good to see that some human beings are willing to fight for their rights
There have been a good number of people from the outset vigorously objecting to our loss of liberties due to what was evidently a moral panic over Covid.
The problem is that we have not been in the majority. But that seems to be changing. Many of those who went along with Faucism for many months have started to awaken from their fevered nightmares—to recognize that they’ve been conned, and that much of what terrified them was never real.
Trudeau: "Fetch me the brown trousers."
Let's hope they run Castro's Bastard out of Ottowa, if not up a flag pole.
Ain’t she a beautiful sight :)
Been reading a lot of pretty evil shit being said about these folks today.
So you can now see Global Cap in a darkened room, wiping beads of sweat off their brows, wringing their sweaty hands (like Hitler in his bunker in the final days) screaming to their petrified minions to accelerate the development and roll-out of autonomous rigs so they don't have to deal with these peskey humans no more! It feels like the eternal battle of good versus evil.
I did wonder if we could persuade Putin to invade Canada rather than Ukraine and kidnap the Chief clown Trudeau and his hysterical gang of fools. A few years in the gulags may force some sanity into him.
I say this from the only slightly less nonsensical political theatrics of the UK.
This is the greatest news in weeks!
“Let them truckers roll, 10-4!”
Breaker breaker one nine. Looks like we got us a convoy. Good for these folks.
This would be what you call mass resistance and it's about 20 months late.
They've reached critical mass, indeed.

This is absolutely brilliant, fantastic, words fail me. People are brilliant. I salute you 💪💪🇬🇧🇬🇧
Feels so good to see fellow Canadians showing some backbone! Keep it up, guys and gals.
