Woooh… This quote is from Professor Philip Zimbardo, the man behind the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment, by his own admission when he was questioned by Gordon Bower about a project that had already spiraled way out of control.
Now Zimbardo’s writing a book about how men aren’t masculine enough anymore. Because I guess being masculine means throwing science out the window and planning this thing:
“Then we formulated a second plan. The plan was to dismantle our jail after the visitors left, call in more guards, chain the prisoners together, put bags over their heads, and transport them to a fifth floor storage room until after the anticipated break in. When the conspirators came, I would be sitting there alone. I would tell them that the experiment was over and we had sent all of their friends home, that there was nothing left to liberate. After they left, we’d bring our prisoners back and redouble the security of our prison. We even thought of luring #8612 back on some pretext and then imprisoning him again because he was released on false pretenses.”
Yikes! Makes me wonder what he wishes men were like these days.plasticlain)
