Needless to say, there have been mass delusions throughout history. Quite often, these masses have been led by their delusions to kill others who are not deluded. The Holocaust would be the most obvious example of that. Hitler believed that Jews were responsible for all the ills of the world. Therefore: No Jews, no problem, so let’s kill Jews! It makes sense if you truly buy the delusion.

I understand that people are willing to die for their beliefs. But the COVID-19 vaccine haters are committed to a delusion that leads to them getting sick and dying in excessive numbers.
