If you're interested in reading more about this I highly recommend the book "Tribe" by Sebastian Junger - it goes into exactly what you say - why people sometimes feel better in a time of crisis.

The main reason is the temporary flattening of social hierarchies and true meritocracy where you are more valued for your skills than for your position in society.
