Philip Zimbardo sait comme il est facile pour des gens aimables de mal tourner. Dans cette présentation, il partage ses pensées et des photos inédites et difficiles des procès d'Abu Ghraib. Il parle ensuite de l'aspect opposé : comme il est facile de devenir un héros, et comment nous pouvons tous relever le défi.
