I recently watched a TED talk about the Psychology of Evil by Philip Zimbardo. He was the leader of the Stanford Prison Experiment from 1971 that showed the ability for "good" people to turn "evil." I have discussed this in therapy to help clients gain understanding for how people behave. You may have chosen bad behaviors in you past or you have people in your life who have changed in a negative way. We all have the ability to do bad things if we are not aware and mindful of who we are individuals and the morals we stand for. People can get "caught up" in the action of the group, not realizing the feelings and actions of themselves, as individuals. Be mindful of who you are!
