This talk by Philip Zimbardo is one of the most important docs I’ve ever posted here.  Zimbardo is the psychologist who designed and implemented the Stanford Prison Experiment.  Talk includes the Millgram experiment and The Lucifer Effect.

He is s firm proponent of a culture of heroism, of having an antidote to evil systems.  Very good talk, needed in the world right now.

“A moral commitment to other people.”
