Funny, I always thought that the Stanford Prison Study was apocryphal. After watching these videos, it’s pretty clear that it’s not only real, but more vivid and difficult than any of the descriptions I’d heard. I suppose it doesn’t really come as a surprise to a crypto-misanthrope like myself; but that doesn’t make it any easier to watch. I’m reminded of the feelings I had during Katrina, and which persist: that our entire society and day to day reality is 5 days away from Mad Max.

UPDATE:  Unfortunately this video seems to have been nuked as a copyvio.  I’ll have to see if I can find another.  Shame…it was really good.

Damn. Missed it. YouTube informs:

“This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Philip Zimbardo”
