We all know this story as it has been posted with the Milgram experiments - The Lucifer Effect, by Phillip Zimbardo, the guy who created a real life Abu Ghraib back in the 60's using average university students as either prisoners or guards.

He was on the Daily Show and Colbert Report as well as CNN( available to watch at the site) and has some things to say about why good people turn evil. Google evil and see how many hits it brings up. I read that Bush is there about 2 million times using the word so we have to attach significance to its use with the sheeple.

I'm going out to get it or order it today. Do you think greed has a part in it or is it a combination of authority approval and assumed power that is the cause? After 30 years he finally gives his opinion.

Here's a blurb about the Milgram Experiments - ... 00037.html

Just tell them it's OK and they'll do whatever you tell them to do. This is how the police can excuse their actions.

Completely sane world
madness the only freedom

An ability to see both sides of a question
one of the marks of a mature mind

People don't choose to be dishonest
the choice chooses them

Now I know how Kusinich feels.
