(10pts total) Critical Thinking:
(4pts) If you one day found yourself in a similar position as the Hutu civilianswere in 1994, or the German civilians during the Holocaust, what learned knowledge (from your book, lecture, and/or the article) would you apply to avoid a similar fate of becoming influenced to do evil? Be specific.
o (1pt) Do you think you would even notice what was happening before it was too late? Importantly, do you think you could change the course of what was happening?
(5pts) Explain why or why not, and integrate material learned specifically from the topic of social psychology. In other words, this is NOT just an opinion answer. Rather, you must incorporate empirical/factual knowledge to support your response. You must incorporate at least three topics from your lecture that directly apply to this question. Here are several examples of learned topics you can incorporate to answer this question:
What did you learn about conformity?
What did you learn about obedience and compliance?
Why do good people do bad things?
What did you learn about the bystander effect?
What did you learn about cognitive dissonance?
What did you learn about role-playing?
Anything else you can add that you learned from lecture or your textbook.
