Mon, 08/10/2015

Bill Resnick comments on Donald Trump, the candidate, a/k/a the “Donald,” a cartoon character, an ego expanding faster than the universe. But did he really attack U.S. "democracy," and the role of money in politics? The answer is yes. And is he, as most pundits keep saying, really bad for the Republican Party? We wish it were so. image from http://www.mexican-american.org/ 7:28 minutes (3.42 MB)

Psychoanalysis and Politics: The Stanford Prison Experiment

Mon, 08/10/2015

Jan Haaken and Tod Sloan discuss Phillip Zimbardo’s famous Stanford Prison Experiment, in which participants played the roles of guards and prisoners. The inspiration for several films, the study is usually remembered as showing that normal people can quickly become sadistic in contexts that invite such behavior. But Jan and Tod point out that this downplays evidence of prisoner resistance and ignores several features of the context of the study itself. images from imdb.com & memecollection.net 10:57 minutes (5.02 MB)
