  • Experimenter: He Asked You to Stop

    Social psychologist Stanley Milgram conducts a series of radical experiments that test the willingness of individuals to obey authority. When the inflictor is interviewed as to why he continued to send electric shocks after each incorrect answer even when he was begged to stop, the inflictor implies that it wasn't that serious because it was the subject that made the request. This clip illustrates the conflict between personal conscience and obedience to authority.

  • The Andy Griffith Show: Authoritarianism

    In this clip we have the deputy do a comedic sketch of protecting the Andy by forcibly enlisting two other people who do not want to be part of this action.

We can take it to the real world context of who and how authority handles protests (riots) as well as the hyper militarization of police in events like: Zoot Suit Riots, Occupy Movement, BLM protests, and the Insurrection.
