This is a lecture given by Philip Zimbardo – of The Lucifer Effect and the Stanford Prison Experiment mentioned in the previous post – where he talks about the ‘ease’ of doing heroic or evil things, specifically related to the Abu Ghraib trials and accusations that soldiers abused prisoners.

In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t watched the whole thing (yet), but be warned that there are graphic images included in the lecture (and the site warns you about this too). But what I’ve seen is quite interesting…
