Did the Government use mass formation as part of the Covid recovery response

Jane made this Official Information request to Chris Hipkins

Chris Hipkins did not have the information requested.

From: Jane

Dear Chris Hipkins,

I would like to request information which proves that the NZ government did not use a technique called Mass Formation.

Mass formation requires
1. Social isolation
2. Inability to make sense of life
3. Free floating anxiety
4. Free floating discontent

When a population is deceived using mass formation, anything can be taken from them.

Please provide information regarding which psychologists were employed or consulted by the NZ Government for the Covid 19 recovery response.

Yours faithfully,
