When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

"Very simply, what happens when you put good people in an evil place? Does the goodness of the people overwhelm the evil or does the system corrupt good people? And the answer we found was very simple. And the answer we found in that study has been replicated a number of times in other research I've done and research social psychologists have done; that when you have a system of evil--and I can describe that very briefly--that the majority of good people succumb, give in, comply, conform, are blindly obedient to authority--good boys in our study became sadistic guards; that it's not everyone, but the problem is the majority of people give in to these situational forces."
