It seems to me, Anna, that we are entering interesting times (again) and a chance for further observations on Milgram’s conclusions. So, for example, what conditions and situations cause a person to turn away desperate people searching for safety? To separate children from their parents? To fire on unarmed civilians who are rushing a border crossing?

I wish that articles such as yours would only have old historical data to work from, but alas, I fear this will not be the case.
