Ethical? I think not.

I really enjoyed reading your blog for it was different from mine. I thought the experiments were ethical to preform once for society to realize our inner demons that come out when we are under the pressure of authority or when we have the power of authority over others. I do agree that the patients in the Zimbardo experiment were treated unfairly (mostly the ones being the prisoners), but I don’t see the harm in the Milgram one. I think its that they caused their own psychological problems by stressing out over it, in my opinion they didn’t have a strong enough conscious to do what they knew was right and stop when they heard the actor yell ouch.

Like what you read? Give Liz Norwood a round of applause.
