    Default Rachel-Hertz Syndrome; variation of Kraepelin's "induced madness"

    In another thread I mentioned the problem of pathological hysteria and perennial wounded feelings of Jews. I thought I had seen it in the Journal of Historical Review, but in fact it was an article in "The Revisionist: Journal for Critical Historical Inquiry", ISSN: 1542-376X, Feb 2003. "The Hole in the Door" by Hans Pedersen, pp. 52-56. Here is a general look at the ideas presented.

    In Kraepelin's induced madness, you have the inductor and the induced. The induced suffers something akin to what the inductor insinuates. To adapt Kraepelin's idea, Pedersen suggests the label "Acquired Behavior Deficiency Syndrome", or ABDS, for the side of the induced. In ABDS, the induced is blocked from thinking rationally, e.g. by taboo.

    "Whole epidemics can develop." "The Inductor blocks the mental defense mechanism of the victim." "The disease was first described in Denmark with a Jewish girl named Juliane Rachel Hertz who became known as the Sewing Needle Virgin. [3] Characteristic of the disease is the uninhibited use of constant deception by a person who attempts to bring herself into the center of attention in order to gain support from the people around her." "Rachel Hertz was gifted and had a lively fantasy." "A few days after Rachel had been told that she had been exposed [as having fraudulent, artificial health disorders], her body functions were back to normal." "The case also shows that the Inductor gets his or her ideas for the acts of deception from his or her environment and adapts them to the expectations of the target person(s)." "Neurotic persons can totally terrorize their environment, because most people cannot stand the emotional stress when a neurotic person does not get his or her will." "There exists in the Anglo-Saxon literature a related concept called "Holocaust Survivor Syndrome (HSS). [4] This is a disease with massive induced delusions which occurs almost exclusively among Jewish individuals. Other groups of people, who were affected by war, internment, or catastrophes, do not usually show these pathological reactions." "Once the group of Inductors has reinforced their totalitarian domination of a society, nobody dares to see that "the emperor has no clothes". ... Then the paranoid illusions can spread worldwide. None of the induced individuals recognizes the abstruseness to which it leads."

    Default Re: Rachel-Hertz Syndrome; variation of Kraepelin's "induced madness"

    In other words, this is a case where there is a clinically verifiable pathology associated with and premised on specific social patterns. The same patterns can then be observed in other cases which may not admit of clinical observation. The result is that the social scene can be described in terms that have pathological significance.
