“It can be all too human to jump in too fast and draw quick conclusions on the meaning or reason behind something, adding to what are often irrational beliefs. Often with ambiguous events, a ‘meaning vacuum’ occurs, leaving us without immediate clarity on the event.

We all need to be able to wait patiently and let a situation calm down before deciding what – if anything – we should do about it. This can be the difference between ‘believing’ and ‘knowing’, and I talk more about that distinction later in the video, with some tips on how to carefully help someone make that distinction, and how to dispute irrational beliefs.

The Dark Side of Science: The Bobo Doll Experiment 1963 (Short Documentary)…

“The Bobo doll experiment is the name for a series of experiments performed by psychologist Albert Bandura to test his social learning theory.

Between 1961 and 1963, he studied the behaviour of children after they watched an adult model act aggressively towards a Bobo the clown doll.

The most famous version of the experiment measured the children’s behaviour after seeing an adult model rewarded, punished, or experience no consequence for physically attacking the Bobo doll.

The results of the experiment would be used as the justification of the anti video game movement of the 1980 and 1990s.

The study was considered controversial but not as bad as the Baby Albert study.”

There’s something inherently strange, about taking a well known toy that was created for aggressive and violent play [the Bobo doll], and expecting that a child’s interaction with it would be anything other than aggressive and violent.

Of course they’re going to punch, kick and shove around the doll…That’s explicitly what it was made for, and how it was marketed.

As I recall it…this toy was an acceptable method, of letting out your frustrations and hyper energy…That’s the point behind it’s very existence.

“On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger on the takeover of the Taliban in Afghanistan. He calls the US military a killing machine and discusses why the Afghanistan War must be viewed through the lens of Western imperialism, the scale of civilian casualties and destruction of Afghanistan by NATO countries, how the US created today’s situation by supporting Afghan jihadist forces against the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, the social progress and progressive reform lost to history with the fall of the Soviet-backed PDPA government in Afghanistan and much more! John Pilger also discusses the anniversary of the Pinochet coup in Chile and the trial of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange”
