Citizen's Stockholm Syndrome I

From Wikipedia:
"Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.” One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual’s response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be a threat."

From The Mind Web on the Stockholm Syndrome:
"Most common of all, and the reason I bring this matter to your attention, is: 'the common fear to escape the captivity of slavery' where people refuse to accept actions, experience and reason that show 'their' government is their enemy. The syndrome could, more correctly, be called the "Slave Loyalty Syndrome". "

If you have a few hundred thousand dollars (US$) of your money locked up by your government leaving you with insufficient money for living with dignity, you need to seriously re-evaluate your government. Leave the historical traumatic bonding behind. Refocus on the future.

* Common wealth is your money, an equal share with other citizens.
