that's a new one on me

Is the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment a lie?

Revolutionary, if so, and there seems to be evidence that the people who played the role of prison guards had been coached to be abusive, i.e., the idea of spontaneous abusiveness now comes into question.

Yeah, I read a different article about this, with more or less the same conclusion. Apparently a lot of the old psych experiments that inform how we think about ourselves are being called into question now.
