New delusions for a modern age

There have always been psychotics--people who are out of touch with reality--and there always will be. Of late, however, psychotic visions are starting to take on themes more in tune with the times, psychiatrists say. These include the "Truman Show" delusion, in which people believe that their every move is being filmed for a reality TV show starring them. There's "Internet delusions," in which people believe that they're being tracked everywhere they go by web-savvy folks with high technology at their disposal. Or maybe you have "climate change delusions," in which you refuse to fill a glass of water because you believe you'll be drinking the world's last fresh drink. Article
