Description
 
Philip Zimbardo and Daniel Ellsberg discuss why some people are willing to take
courageous nonviolent action in defense of ethical principles.

Philip Zimbardo is professor emeritus of psychology at Stanford University and
creator of the renowned Stanford Prison Experiment. Daniel Ellsberg served in
the Pentagon under Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and is best known as the
whistleblower who released documents known as the Pentagon Papers to the public
which detailed the secrets and lies that shaped three decades of American
foreign policy in Vietnam.

These two icons of progressive thought in America met for the first time to
discuss a salient question for our times: Why are some people willing to take
courageous nonviolent action in defense of ethical principles, even at personal
risk to themselves?

This video captures their conversation and calls for a new era of truth-telling
by citizens privy to crucial and often classified information that the public
deserves to know. They call for a new ethic of accountability by those leaders
who govern the United States, its judiciary and its military. They challenge
ordinary people to take calculated risks in the service of their conscience and
their fellow citizens.
