Philip Zimbardo discusses what he calls "The Lucifer Effect" and how good people can turn evil. Zimbardo focuses on the torture and abuse that occurred at Abu Ghraib in the Iraq War, particularly focusing on who the prison guards were before they worked at the prison. He also discusses the Stanford Prison Experiment, an experiment he ran that produced surprising results in regards to the Lucifer effect.
