Psychology of Power Discussion

The psychology of power: To the person? To the situation? To the system

Zimbardo in this chapter amongst discusses the ideas of “moral disengagement” and “dehumanization”. He also, suggests an 11-step plan for promoting “civic virtue”. How could the 11-steps for promoting civic virtue be used to counteract moral disengagement and dehumanization? Do you think it is enough to promote “civic virtue” or is there something else missing that needs to be included. (300).
