The Milgram Experiment – Can you kill somebody?

Leave a comment

A mind blowing experiment which just horrified and made me rethink the whole idea I had about Second World War and also about the present times. This reminds me of some quotes from “East of Eden”  by J. Steinbeck:

“But Cain lived and had children, and Abel lives only in the story. We are Cain’s children.”

“We are  violent people. Maybe it’s true that we are all descended from the restless, the nervous, the criminals, the arguers and brawlers, but also the brave and independent and generous. And so we’re overbrave and overfearful – we’re kind and cruel as children.”
