I enjoyed this book and it certainly clarified what I always suspected about fake news and hysteria , is the control of the American people. The media is being used to convey misinformation , sell more papers and increase ratings. More money. More control. People today are afraid to speak up and tell these folks off. So we vote them out of office and put a President like Donald Trump who is going to undo the wrongs and put America back on track . Read this book and understand how history repeats itself. Good book. Read it twice!

From part of the problem, More marketing to the rubes from Michael Weiner (Fake name: Michael Savage). This man has been stoking the fires of right wing hysteria for years. And he has become wealthy being part of the problem. Now he is trying to be the voice of reason? Sorry, Mike, your platitudes in this book don't make up for your participation in creating the partisan animosity facing this country. If you really want to read this book, go to a library, or wait until it hits the bargain bin. otherwise it will be a waste of your time and money.

Americans today are increasingly subjected to manufactured hysteria and outrage. Mainstream news outlets-- in concert with social media networks --relentlessly toy with the heart-strings of the American body politic, eliciting emotional responses which fit hand-in-glove with a myriad of increasingly divisive agendas. The rush to judgement is a human fallacy; a knee-jerk reaction which must be tempered with a rational evaluation of fact and consequence within the context of history. Stop Mass Hysteria represents both a warning bell and a lifeline to all who value freedom, liberty, and the rule of law. It is a call to embrace individual thought and individual responsibility. A prescient appeal to reject the slippery slope of mob mentality. The famous words of George Santayana ring true now more than ever. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Conversely, it could be said that, "those who do know their history are best equipped to prevent past failures from occurring again". By carefully recounting hysterical movements throughout history, many of which resulted in unthinkable suffering and injustice, Savage does his part to sound the alarm. Stop Mass Hysteria is a wealth of knowledge, educating readers on the tactics and behaviors of emotionally driven hysteria, and equipping them with the historical perspective to recognize when such movements tread waters which proved disastrous for humanity throughout history. It is a must read for anyone desiring a sound understanding of the intricacies and complexities of hysterical "group-think"-- past, present, and future --and the disastrous repercussions they can impose on our society as a whole.
