    Milgram, S. (1963). Behavioral study of obedience. Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology, 67, 371–378.

    Time for a new line of research into the obedience of the Senate Banking Committee members to Jamie Dimon’s agenda (don’t hold me accountable), though the self-serving cause is readily apparent. The question might be: how can they have no shame during a televised hearing?

    • Because they are doggies begging for a treat. Because they are auditioning for multi-million dollar payouts in the financialist predasite sector after they leave office.
