A French TV documentary features people in a spoof game show administering what they are told are near lethal electric shocks to rival contestants.From the BBC. Note that in the original study, "only" 62% complied; could this mean that TV is even more powerful in driving people to behave badly?
Those taking part are told to pull levers to inflict shocks - increasing in voltage - upon their opponents.
Although unaware that the contestants were actors and there was no electrical current, 82% of participants in the Game of Death agreed to pull the lever.
Incidentally, there are some caveats here. I'd like to know more about the methodology; for instance, I'd like to know if the subjects were questioned beforehand as to their familiarity with Milgram's original study. Also, it should be noted that Milgram's subjects were given counselling after the fact (and today some people consider the study unethical in spite of that); I wonder whether similar precautions were taken here.
