Numerous studies have shown us that those given authority are more likely to lie, cheat, and steal, while also being harsher in their judgments of others for doing these same things. Science tells us people with power feel less compassion for the suffering of others.
Previous experiments also show us that those who are obedient to authority are capable of the worst forms of murder, and tolerant of the worst forms of abuse. They will even chastise those of us who resist corrupt authority. They become facilitators of evil, believing that obedience to authority absolves them of personal responsibility.
This is the fifth draft of a renegade psychological experiment on authoritarian sociopathy, specifically on police brutality. We aim to show the world beyond a shadow of a doubt, that power corrupts absolutely, and corrupt authority deserves no obedience.

"an important idea"
Yes. The ideas presented here are necessary to help understand why those who occupy positions of power defy their own moral code.
Unlike anything I've read before.
Narration was superb.
Anyone concerned with our loss of liberty should take the time to listen.
"Good material but horrible reading"
The reader sounds like a news caster puking the local news. He phrases every sentence the same way. Its annoying. That voice is the reason i don't watch the local news.
