Hey everyone. Just thought I would share a link with you all. Clicking the title of this post will take you to the official website of the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. If you click through the slide show you will get the full explanation of what happened and a little introduction to why (known as "The Lucifer Effect"). We've discussed this in several of my psych classes, and that is probably the biggest reason I didn't see the captors in "The Pelican Bar" as aliens, but just people. Humans are capable of terrible things. Like Mama Strong said, "Humans do everything we did. Humans do more."
