How far will they go? – JAM

The French TV program “The Game of Death” asked contestants: “How far will you go?” It first aired this year (2010) and featured volunteers who believed they were helping with a memory experiment. They worked under the supervision of an “authority figure”, who required them to administer extreme electric shocks as punishment for a wrong answer to a person strapped to a chair. In fact there were no electric shocks, but the volunteers believed they were real and their victims pretended great pain and cried to be released. How far did they go?  Of eighty volunteers only 16 refused to administer what they believed were dangerous levels of electricity. The further we drift from God, the more depraved the human spirit becomes. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
