This episode considers the phenomenon of Stockholm Syndrome.
Why do some people change suddenly and against character during intense conflict situations? What happened to the heiress Patty Hearst after she was captured by the Symbionese Liberation Army, and what can this teach us about how enact rapid social change?
It’s a good question to ask right now. If the world doesn’t turn on a dime, away from the present norms of hyper-consumption, and towards something unprecedentedly new, then, simply put, change will be forced upon us, in the form of catastrophic environmental decline, including mass extinction of the biomes which sustain us. In fact his this change is already happening, we’re already living its early stages, and the time to alter our behaviour is yesterday. Time to get Stockholmed!
