THis american life looks at how people choose to do the wrong thing even when they know its not best for them.
Interesting movie based on the 1960’s psychologist Stanley Milgram. Interesting how much people criticized him for things he did that are more tame than most prank shows inflict on people just for entertainment. Also funny no one doing the fake shocking mentioned the if the learner was really in so much pain he could just remove the thing shocking him.

At about 23 minutes Putin makes such a good point about eliminating Saddam and thousands of Saddam’s people needed something to do something to fight as they had nothing after that and this creates more and more terrorists.
You have to pay attention to how many people are behind a leader before you eliminate one and understand if you don’t kill all of their followers you will end up with more trouble than you started with.
