AUTHORITY

 
Authoritarianism




Obedience to an authority figure can inhibit empathy. 
I.e. soldiers shooting civilians because they are ordered to do so. Even if they don't want to they will obey. Afterwards they said at the Nuremberg trials for example, "I was just following orders."


Milgram experiments, 
blind obedience to authority.

Milgram Obedience Study
"Why should you question authority? The answer lies within this ground breaking social psychology experiment by Stanley Milgram regarding human behavior and authority."
