Fun fact: there is no such thing as Stockholm syndrome. It was invented on the spot by an incompetent psychiatrist to explain why the hostages didn't trust him, after he demonstrated complete disregard for their safety. It's literal gaslighting. There is no research that would confirm the phenomenon. It was later picked up by media, and is mostly used to explain away the distrust of victims towards law enforcement after they have been mistreated by it.
