Mass Delusional Psychosis

Dr. Mark McDonald was the first to diagnose and popularize this phenomenon called Mass Delusional Psychosis It is similar to "group think" where people get caught up in a moment of high emotional energy such as when demonstrations become riots, and "Stockholm syndrome" where captives have empathy for their captors who alternate abuse with feigned compassion. Helsinki syndrome is when a person being held captive begins to identify with and grow sympathetic to his or her captor (or their mission), simultaneously becoming unsympathetic towards the police or other authorities.
