The Game of Death

Shortly after lunch today — it being Tuesday — I posted a story I wrote seven years ago that appears now like actual reportage that no professional journalist had the nads to submit to the liberal media.

And when I was waiting for that to post, I came across a story about a game show in France that picked up on some psychological tests conducted in the home of the brave, land of the free, fifty years ago that let me to write this:

I'm so tired of the French taking advantage of the best the NOMF has to offer, from Jerry Lewis to recycled British game and reality shows. Now they have embraced the entire soul and inspiration of American culture with The Game of Death, inspired by Ivy League experiments at Yale in the sixties that were designed to determine whether the Nazi contagion had jumped to the offspring of the Greatest Generation.

For those of you who missed the results, yes, Americans in the Yale experiments proved perfectly willing to commit torture and mass murder when convinced by authority figures that it's the right thing to do. I remember after getting drafted being told to look at my service as a wonderful way to travel the world, see new places, meet interesting people, and kill them.

You can read the rest of the post here.
