The events that led to the deployment of Sûreté du Québec forces at Collège Lionel Groulx on May 15 could be compared to Stanley Milgram’s well-known psychological experiment .
In the early 1960s, Milgram demonstrated that an isolated subject could be convinced to administer supposedly lethal electric shocks to a third person in an adjoining room, submitting to an authority figure who was in the subject’s presence. In this situation, the isolated subject renounces his or her own autonomy and moral sensibility, becoming nothing more than the executive agent of authority.
