So far one other person has suggested similar terms. I tend to favor the
more primitive "Ares" over Mars as the root, but "Aresophilia" would be
love of war which does not exactly cut it. In combination with Eros (in
the attraction sense) it might work, but so far no luck in forming a word.

Article has been out there for year and a half, is widely indexed and over
50k downloads. I started discussing this particular point of the article
with psychologists close to 5 years ago and never had one I have talked to
disagree on my categorization of Stockholm Syndrome as "a conditionally
switched on evolved psychological trait." The 100% response after
discussing what happened to our non-ancestors who did not socially reorient
toward their captors was, "Yeah, that's obvious." This was actually
disappointing since I like defending a thesis.
If you can see any holes in the argument for the origin of
SS/capture-bonding psychological trait I would love to see them.
Thanks for the name suggestion,
