Introduction

We are often struck by what appears to be the senseless acts of mass
suicide by large groups of people who belong to cults...Jonestown,
Order of the Solar Temple, and now Heaven's Gate. The more recent
incidents suggests that most of these people were bright, competent,
and productive individuals.

There are powerful social forces that can distort one's perception of
reality and influence people to do things that they would normally not
even consider as responsible individuals. As you will find in the
links below, the social psychological effects of groups can produce
alterations in personality (a dissociative state), post traumatic
stress disorder, and the commission of illegal acts.
