For those of you wondering to yourselves. whether the nation’s gone mad electing the rotting squash we currently have holed up in the oval office, I suggest that you read up on the Stanford Prison Experiment.

It was conducted at Stanford University on August 14–20, 1971, by a research group led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo using college students.
