What is intereting to me is the notion of beginning to be being able
to take what Zimbardo calls "a public health approach"
to lessening the likelihood of, for instance, an Abu Ghraib.
Eg....lessening anonymity of people in situations where they can abuse.
Maybe this information is addressed in the link that I have yet to read.
I 'm not too sure about how a "public health approach" is defined.
Insofar as anonymity is concerned, if I remember accurately,
the MPs who were endeavoring to extract information from the
obstinate Moslems were either ORDERED
to do it, or minimally, thay
were encouraged to use psychological means to degrade or diminish
enemy reticence qua information of future raids or sabotage
against American troops. Those MPs had an honorable motive,
and thay did not act out of personal sadism. I am uncertain qua
how much anonymity thay needed. If I am inaccurate in my memory
of the facts, I hope that someone will correct me.
