In “Everything I know about NLCB (now RTTT) I Learned from Primetime Live” by Gary Stager, the author starts by talking about the scientist Stanley Milgram and his experiments. Milgram tested the willingness of a participant to obey an authority who instructs the participant to do something that may conflict with the participant’s personal conscience. Stager talks about how ABC did a similar experiment and that it is similar to teachers teaching to standardize testing. This shows how easily most people just follow orders and don’t act on intuition. The world will not get very far if this is the attitude that people have. More people should stand up for what they believe instead of following the crowd or what they are told. This is what mattered to me in Gary Stager’s “Everything I know about NLCB (now RTTT) I Learned from Primetime Live”.
