Stanford Prison Experiment, contd.

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

This video is so humiliating to everyone concerned, me, you, TSA, and the poor woman left, apparently unattended to, stripped to her undies in full goddamned view of what can only be described as her fellow abased and utterly subordinated inmates, that I hesitate to even re-post from HuffPo, according to whom, this is no “gag.”

And this is but a vague snapshot of what we have turned into. At least a couple of people seem even slightly confused, suggesting a tincture of cognitive jarring, by what they are seeing, but maybe I’m wrong about that.

What in the world would John Ashcroft say?

Update, via wilberforce in comments:

Apparently, this woman has some potential issues, e.g., coming to the airport already dressed only overcoats and lingerie on more than one occasion.

Maybe she’s an exhibitionist. Still, even if she turns out to be nuttier than a fruitcake, wouldn’t one expect some discretion on TSA’s part?

Maybe it’s her way of protesting TSA, although she did not indicate or voice signs of protest. She certainly has a Stepford-wife calmness about her in the video, but it’s hard to second-guess someone’s personal reaction to what should be viewed as rather radical public humiliation.

In any case, so much for jumping to conclusions in this stranger-than-fiction world. It’s hard to say what is going here.

  1. ‘Zat you, Alan Funt?

  2. Is this real?

    Anyway, look over here at this bright shiny object, and let me tell you about this bridge I have for sale.

    An experiment in subjugating an airport crowd into abject passivity.

    “Don’t as questions or look pissed or this will be you”

    Look at the faces in the crowd going past her. Blank stares and utter submission to authority. Any thought of fighting it or rebelling is pre beat out of them. They can each see clearly that no one around them would stand up for them.

    Then again, this is just a stunt by her for some TV time. Larry King loves blondes. Expect to see her on his show soon.
