So now you know how I feel about this, in case you were curious. As I said over on Small Peculiar, I'll go back to being funny on Monday. I could say a lot more about this whole situation, but I'm worn out at the moment -- I drew this comic at a coffee shop today after therapy because I didn't want to be alone with the Milgram experiments. They did give us one hopeful piece of information that I would like to point out, though: when the subjects witnessed what they thought was the refusal of other subjects to go through with the experiment, compliance dropped to 10 percent. (Compliance was 3 percent when the person on the receiving end demanded to be shocked!)
This was one of my reference photos for Stanley Milgram. I believe this photograph was taken during another experiment in which Milgram walked around dressed like that to see if anyone had the moral courage to tell him that his collar was ridiculous.
eyeteeth: At this point I see the collar as a cry for help: http://www.stanleymilgram.com/images/dd_manwhoshocked.jpg
substitute: It was a different time.
