Five years from now the thing I will remember from this psychology course is the Milgram experiment. Not only was it the most interesting experiment, in my opinion, it was also the one that got me thinking the most. From a young age we are taught obedience and to respect authority figures such as teachers, principals and police officers. Milgram proved that this obedience runs much deeper than most people thought. In his study, participants were pushed to their moral limits as they were told to continue to administer shocks clearly labeled dangerous. How far would you go if Mr. Willams was prompting you to continue, to follow orders, to hurt another person? From an outsiders view it is easy to say that you would never follow orders if you knew they were wrong but this experiment makes us think twice. With over half, 62 percent, administering the highest voltage one cannot be so sure that they would not do the same thing. Not all obedience is bad but blind obedience, without listening to our morals, can get us in a lot of trouble. Having learned about this study and its application to the Holocaust it reminds me to always question authority rather than simply obey.
