Default Re: Fun with ethics

Out of interest, and again on a small tangent, the Stanford prison experiment was very interesting, and is what I mean when people can seem, and say, they will do one thing, but can act totally different in a specific situation. It showed the impressionability of people when presented a legitimised ideology. So maybe in fact we act in ethical situations as to what we perceive is right, based on culture and upbringing, or the situational position we stand in when it occurs. Are ethics 'inherent' or a product of our experiences? both I'd say.
