Philip Zimbardo: The psychology of evil

I am posting this video as a follow up to R.I. P. Anschel Warschau.
Look at the solution this man has come up with. And what are we giving our children today? Where is today's Lone Ranger? Today's Rifleman? Marshall Dillon?
In my observation, today's television shows feed our children on the notion that they must be fighting supernatural evils or that the police can and should engage in the most appalling tactics to get confessions. That "suspects" who "lawyer up" are obstructionists or worse. Such attitudes encourage bad behavior from law enforcement. We can change this.
"Never Again" rests with us.
