Other than showing loyalty to their lawyer (whom they said was not given a fair opportunity to represent them) how are they showing empathy towards
"We lived in a world of lies and false hope,"
"the worst experience of our lives."
How do you get Stockholm Syndrome out of "this was the worst experience of our lives?"
If that is your idea of empathy, what is your idea of hatred?
Stockholm Syndrome does not imply that the victims will have total, 1,000% association with their kidnappers. It is much less than that, often only
manifested by irrational feelings and statements:
In psychology, Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a real paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express empathy and have
positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the
danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness
So, Blaine's statements are not incongruent.
