Stanford prison experiment

This is a provocative eye opener on how people can change and modify their behavior – this is often detected in livestock farmers, slaughterhouses, animal housing for experiments and local government enclosures for unwanted animals, to name a few places where this occurs. Therefore, there is a great desire to introduce CCTV monitoring in these places – CCTV for ALL Slaughterhouses. The Stanford prison experiment (SPE) was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoneror prison guard. The experiment was conducted at Stanford University from August 14 to August 20, 1971, by a team of researchers led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo. It was funded by the US Office of Naval Research and was of interest to both the US Navy and Marine Corps as an investigation into the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners.

All these atrocities against the San must be seen as what they are: Outright genocide.

While peoples the indigenous hunter-gatherer cultures are driven to extinction, the kill-for-money psychopaths are allowed to continue their shameful acts in other African countries.
