Using my web-access here, so don't know if this'll get through or not.
Anyway, following Steve's reminder I've been watching 'The Experiment' a
repeat of the zimbardo prison experiment from the 1970s. It has been
fascinating TV, and I feel shows how reality TV can have its moments (when
prize money, or hoped for fame, isn't a factor).
For those who can't see the show yet, so far almost the reverse has happened
to what happened in Stanford. The 'guards' have totally failed to exert
control and authority, and the 'prisoners' have been in charge since about
day 2, when on prisoner over-looked for "promotion" to being a guard decided
at that moment to play mind games with the guards, with lots of success.
