Guys
:cheers:

65% of people in the Milgram experiment obey regardless of the pain they were inflicting.

We are conditioned to obey.
If you do not conform you will be in the minority....

very interesting post , says a lot about our times we live in,

nothing exists in a vacuum, everything has interconnectedness, regardless of whether or not its perceived on any particular level, therefore, when unjustified pain and trauma is inflicted upon others, it actually hurts the person doing it, as well as recieving it.

Noentry this would make for a good poll. Just to see how many on this forum would kill if a situation arose that they had very little choice in the matter.

The image of authority can come out of the wild blue yonder.

It often has and will continue.

The Psychology of Authority

Are you one of those?
Do you bend to the will of others?

The Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures was a series of social psychology experiments conducted by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram, which measured the willingness of study participants to obey an authority figure who instructed them to perform acts that conflicted with their personal conscience. Milgram first described his research in 1963 in an article published in the Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology,[1] and later discussed his findings in greater depth in his 1974 book, Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View.[2]

The experiments began in July 1961, three months after the start of the trial of German Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Milgram devised his psychological study to answer the question: "Was it that Eichmann and his accomplices in the Holocaust had mutual intent, in at least with regard to the goals of the Holocaust?" In other words, "Was there a mutual sense of morality among those involved?" Milgram's testing suggested that it could have been that the millions of accomplices were merely following orders, despite violating their deepest moral beliefs. The experiments have been repeated many times, with consistent results within societies, but different percentages across the globe.[3] The experiments were also controversial, and considered by some scientists to be unethical and physically or psychologically abusive. Psychologist Diana Baumrind considered the experiment "harmful because it may cause permanent psychological damage and cause people to be less trusting in the future."[4] Such criticism motivated more thorough review boards and committee reviews for working with human subjects.

Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority.
