Dr P Zimbardo's somewhat infamous Prison Experiment (not on this list) basically was replaced by other 'Control vs Victim' experiments were here - It was refreshing to see it not quite so vilified for once; Although I would have expected to see Dr S Milgrams (equally) infamous 'Compliance' experiment somewhere here. (Did I see Milgrams name on another experiment in this clip???) It is also interesting to note that for a time Milgram and Zimbardo were in the same school, and shared classes! - What were they taught?

I remember a show discussing the Tusko the Elephant LSD experiment and they showed some evidence that they were hypothesizing that the reason some Bull Elephants would go violent was the exposure to high amounts of LSD in their food sources, which is where some of the rumors of old Uncle CIA going "making things violent with drugs... YES PLEASE!" and giving support to the testing. Rumors in the research community at the time was the tester was convinced that pharmacology was a shortcut to becoming super-human and thus was bullish on pushing boundaries.

I've always found the Millgram Experiment (which was not mentioned here) and The Third Wave experiment to be incredibly chilling and terrifyingly illustrative of just how...willing...people tend to be when faced with Authority and "fit in" and, "conform," for fear of being rebuked or ostracized by either the authority figure, or society.

The Russian sleep experiment. Now thats an experiment that went terribly wrong on so many levels.

Ack! The mouse utopia appears to have parallels to our human societies, with elites who are out of touch with reality...scary! REALLY scary! Are we expected to 'spare' these elites when we turn violent? I recall Roumania & the revolt in 1989...just sayin'...

Last video I watched "These experiments conducted by the government were inexcusable and only 'American Exceptionalism' would allow people to do so" This video "Behavioral scientists are not evil..." Something tells me this guys bias is pretty flagrant. Un ethical experiments are unethical no matter who commits them.

Okay...#01...the Wave...that's just classic human psychology. Humans will follow any one or any thing that they feel has a commanding and dominant presence, as well as leadership qualities. I blame evolution for that, but I digress, since that's likely how we've survived for many aeons, by playing follow-the-leader.

Could we please have a video about the best of people? I would like to hear about people who have done wonderful things to benefit mankind, without looking for personal gain or screwing anyone over to get it. There is such a lot of negativity in the world, I'm so disheartened by people who justify harming others for their own selfish reasons.

That last experiment wouldn’t have gone to waste if they had interviewed the kids that fell for the charismatic leader and those that didn’t. That could tell us a lot about the Hitler and tRump supporters. What kind of family life, were they racist or came fro m bigoted families, were they religious and/or what religion, if any, were they, Also sexual orientation and ethnicity. Since he went as far as he did, he shouldn’t have let it go to waste!

How did the Baby Alfred Experiment by John B Watson not get included here? Little kid was given a permanent phobia of animals and anything colored white due to deliberately pairing a white rat with loud sounds. This led to him being scared of not just white rats or just rats or just small animals but rather anything that moved and anything colored white as well. Meaning any animal made him cry including a former beloved family dog and even old humans made him cry. That alone would be bad enough to do to a little baby but it gets worse. After the experiment ended he was never treated for the learned phobias and instead had to suffer from crippling phobias for the rest of his life. Also, you mentioned the experiment where nurses were tricked into overdosing patients, but failed to include the experiment where people were ordered to apply shocks to other people beyond lethal levels. Known as the Milgram Shock Experiment it proved that when people with presumed authority ordered things most humans followed orders either figuring the authority figure knew better, or afraid to speak out against them and suffer a punishment for failure to comply with orders. Even worse, that experiment had the "patient" seemingly "die" and stop responding which caused extreme mental anguish and anxiety to the shock givers. In some ways this was worse than just a potential overdose. Then there is the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. But that one is kind of over covered by now.

Way, way too much for one video albeit very interesting despite a tendency towards sensationalism . Enough for a week long convention each . IIRC the doctor/prescribing scenario is about obedience to [perceived] authority

theduke ofweasels (29 days ago)
Actually I think the creepiest part about the rat Utopia experiment is how much it mimics human societies. When resources become plentiful and cities become crowded similar patterns emerge. I mean we have the rich or famous people protected from everything and then we have the everyday common people that have just accepted a boring unfulfilling life and sort of given up even trying. Eventually this tension result in violence but by that point the apathy is so rampant nobody really cares I mean it basically reads like the Nightly News.

No1More1Mr1Nice1Guy1 (1 month ago)
wow the 3rd wave experiment is so applicable today, people convinced to become fascististic and aggressive towards others.... the rise of the far left, antifa, bamn etc. Individuals who behave aggressively and fascistic also believing they have a moral authority. And before anyone says that the same thing is happening on the right or blames trump, first show me evidence of his homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic behaviour.... i wont take random nothing statements as fact, but i want real examples. It also doesn't cancel out the fact of the fascistic nature of the current lefty politics and ideologies.
No1More1Mr1Nice1Guy1 (1 month ago)
isnt no 1 rather telling?.... reflects what we're seeing now in western society.... feckless lazy females, grooming themselves and forgetting essentially what it is to be female and how to raise children and families. pampered by the state if not pampered by a partner, relying on males to protect them from outside 'annoyances'.

In the Educational Television updated dramatization of the Wave Experiment a student asks "There is no leader is there? to which the teacher replace "Yes there is. There is your leader." And a film of Hitler giving of his speeches is shown. Chilling.

I remember watching a program about "The Wave" in the late 80s early '90s. I don't remember it as The 3rd Wave, I noticed one of the articles posted behind you also called it "The Wave". I wonder if this is a Mandela Effect. Does anyone else recall it being called "The Wave"? Or do you remember it as "The 3rd Wave"?
