It's amazing how different the different participants stories are 
compared to the standard story.  I think especially telling is the one 
guard who says he planned what came over him - he lead the efforts of 
the guards to break down the prisoners.  It strikes me that without him, 
the entire experiment may have turned out quite differently.  How would 
the world be different if the Stanford Prison Experiment had resulted in 
people playing guitars happily for 2 weeks?
