Alexander Haslam on Tyranny - Dictionary of Arguments
Haslam I 142
Tyranny/Haslam/Reicher: Thesis: (…) tyranny arises neither from disposition nor situation alone, nor even from a mechanical interaction between these elements. Instead it arises from a dynamic interactionism in which individuals who are inclined towards tyranny (in part as a result of prior group experience) come to exert influence over others (and therefore over events) only when they come to represent a shared social identity and are able to exercise leadership on that basis (Haslam and Reicher, 2007(1), 2012b)(2). >BBC Prison Experiment, >Stanford Prison Experiment.
