A siege mentality is the mindset adopted by a political, religious, or ethnic group that they are surrounded on all sides by evil forces that want to destroy them. A siege mentality is extremely useful for enforcing ideological purity and a sense of community, as well as providing an easy means for demonization of groups perceived as enemies.[1]
