(panic programming in full effect)
Ugh. Just keeping everyone conditioned for the next round
supposedly some people are programmed to be programmed. There is no way to save them anymore. I have given up on some because there is just no way to connect with them, like an electric gadget without its cord. I had no idea there was a hype about these flies! The only things I bother about are mosquitoes because they bite, and roaches because, well, they are roaches. But I no longer panic when I see one, not even when i see 10. That is just part of living in the boonies!
Fromm had an interesting analysis of the experiment. About 35% of the shock administrators refused to continue. The vast majority of the rest showed significant distress over what they were doing. A small minority were psychopaths. The obedience of the majority is of course disturbing. But a big minority had conscience and the strength of character to decline further cruelty.
Possibly the best plan!
Oy vey. Lantern bugs sure are shining a light on lots of psychological patterns!
Nothing to See Here.
