Top 10 Evil Human Experiments

Jamie Frater . . . Comments

[WARNING] This list contains descriptions and images of human experimentation which may cause offense to some readers.] Human experimentation and research ethics evolved over time. On occasion, the subjects of human experimentation have been prisoners, slaves, or even family members. In some notable cases, doctors have performed experiments on themselves when they have been unwilling to risk the lives of others. This is known as self-experimentation. This is a list of the 10 most evil and unethical experiments carried out on humans.

Stanford Prison Experiment

Stanford Prison

The Stanford prison experiment was a psychological study of human responses to captivity and its behavioral effects on both authorities and inmates in prison. The experiment was conducted in 1971 by a team of researchers led by psychologist Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. Undergraduate volunteers played the roles of both guards and prisoners living in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building.

Prisoners and guards rapidly adapted to their roles, stepping beyond the boundaries of what had been predicted and leading to dangerous and psychologically damaging situations. One-third of the guards were judged to have exhibited “genuine” sadistic tendencies, while many prisoners were emotionally traumatized and two had to be removed from the experiment early. Finally, Zimbardo, alarmed at the increasingly abusive anti-social behavior from his subjects, terminated the entire experiment early.

The Monster Study

Stuttering

The Monster Study was a stuttering experiment on 22 orphan children in Davenport, Iowa, in 1939 conducted by Wendell Johnson at the University of Iowa. Johnson chose one of his graduate students, Mary Tudor, to conduct the experiment and he supervised her research. After placing the children in control and experimental groups, Tudor gave positive speech therapy to half of the children, praising the fluency of their speech, and negative speech therapy to the other half, belittling the children for every speech imperfection and telling them they were stutterers. Many of the normal speaking orphan children who received negative therapy in the experiment suffered negative psychological effects and some retained speech problems during the course of their life. Dubbed “The Monster Study” by some of Johnson’s peers who were horrified that he would experiment on orphan children to prove a theory, the experiment was kept hidden for fear Johnson’s reputation would be tarnished in the wake of human experiments conducted by the Nazis during World War II. The University of Iowa publicly apologized for the Monster Study in 2001.

Project 4.1

300Px-Project 4.1 Figures

Project 4.1 was the designation for a medical study conducted by the United States of those residents of the Marshall Islands exposed to radioactive fallout from the March 1, 1954 Castle Bravo nuclear test at Bikini Atoll, which had an unexpectedly large yield. For the first decade after the test, the effects were ambiguous and statistically difficult to correlate to radiation exposure: miscarriages and stillbirths among exposed Rongelap women doubled in the first five years after the accident, but then returned to normal; some developmental difficulties and impaired growth appeared in children, but in no clear-cut pattern. In the decades that followed, though, the effects were undeniable. Children began to suffer disproportionately from thyroid cancer (due to exposure to radioiodines), and almost a third of those exposed developed neoplasms by 1974.

As a Department of Energy Committee writing on the human radiation experiments wrote, “It appears to have been almost immediately apparent to the AEC and the Joint Task Force running the Castle series that research on radiation effects could be done in conjunction with the medical treatment of the exposed populations.” The DOE report also concluded that “The dual purpose of what is now a DOE medical program has led to a view by the Marshallese that they were being used as ‘guinea pigs’ in a ‘radiation experiment.'”

Project MKULTRA

Cia Lsd

Project MKULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, was the code name for a CIA mind-control research program, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence, that began in the early 1950s and continued at least through the late 1960s. There is much published evidence that the project involved the surreptitious use of many types of drugs, as well as other methodologies, to manipulate individual mental states and to alter brain function.

Experiments included administering LSD to CIA employees, military personnel, doctors, other government agents, prostitutes, mentally ill patients, and members of the general public in order to study their reactions. LSD and other drugs were usually administered without the subject’s knowledge and informed consent, a violation of the Nuremberg Code that the U.S. agreed to follow after WWII.

Efforts to “recruit” subjects were often illegal, even discounting the fact that drugs were being administered (though actual use of LSD, for example, was legal in the United States until October 6, 1966). In Operation Midnight Climax, the CIA set up several brothels to obtain a selection of men who would be too embarrassed to talk about the events. The men were dosed with LSD, and the brothels were equipped with one-way mirrors and the “sessions” were filmed for later viewing and study.

In 1973, CIA Director Richard Helms ordered all MKULTRA files destroyed. Pursuant to this order, most CIA documents regarding the project were destroyed, making a full investigation of MKULTRA virtually impossible.

The Aversion Project

Levine

South Africa’s apartheid army forced white lesbian and gay soldiers to undergo ‘sex-change’ operations in the 1970’s and the 1980’s, and submitted many to chemical castration, electric shock, and other unethical medical experiments. Although the exact number is not known, former apartheid army surgeons estimate that as many as 900 forced ‘sexual reassignment’ operations may have been performed between 1971 and 1989 at military hospitals, as part of a top-secret program to root out homosexuality from the service.

Army psychiatrists aided by chaplains aggressively ferreted out suspected homosexuals from the armed forces, sending them discretely to military psychiatric units, chiefly ward 22 of 1 Military Hospital at Voortrekkerhoogte, near Pretoria. Those who could not be ‘cured’ with drugs, aversion shock therapy, hormone treatment, and other radical ‘psychiatric’ means were chemically castrated or given sex-change operations.

Although several cases of lesbian soldiers abused have been documented so far—including one botched sex-change operation—most of the victims appear to have been young, 16 to 24-year-old white males drafted into the apartheid army.

Dr. Aubrey Levin (the head of the study) is now Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry (Forensic Division) at the University of Calgary’s Medical School. He is also in private practice, as a member in good standing of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.

North Korean Experimentation

200403020016 01

There have been many reports of North Korean human experimentation. These reports show human rights abuses similar to those of Nazi and Japanese human experimentation in World War II. These allegations of human rights abuses are denied by the North Korean government, who claim that all prisoners in North Korea are humanely treated.

One former North Korean woman prisoner tells how 50 healthy women prisoners were selected and given poisoned cabbage leaves, which all the women had to eat despite cries of distress from those who had already eaten. All 50 were dead after 20 minutes of vomiting blood and anal bleeding. Refusing to eat would have meant reprisals against them and their families.

Kwon Hyok, a former prison Head of Security at Camp 22, described laboratories equipped respectively for poison gas, suffocation gas and blood experiments, in which 3 or 4 people, normally a family, are the experimental subjects. After undergoing medical checks, the chambers are sealed and poison is injected through a tube, while “scientists” observe from above through glass. Kwon Hyok claims to have watched one family of 2 parents, a son and a daughter die from suffocating gas, with the parents trying to save the children using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation for as long as they had the strength.

Poison laboratory of the Soviets

Sovietlab

The Poison laboratory of the Soviet secret services, also known as Laboratory 1, Laboratory 12 and “The Chamber”, was a covert poison research and development facility of the Soviet secret police agencies. The Soviets tested a number of deadly poisons on prisoners from the Gulag (“enemies of the people”), including mustard gas, ricin, digitoxin and many others. The goal of the experiments was to find a tasteless, odorless chemical that could not be detected post mortem. Candidate poisons were given to the victims, with a meal or drink, as “medication”.

Finally, a preparation with the desired properties called C-2 was developed. According to witness testimonies, the victim changed physically, became shorter, weakened quickly, became calm and silent and died within fifteen minutes. Mairanovsky brought to the laboratory people of varied physical condition and ages in order to have a more complete picture about the action of each poison.

In addition to human experimentation, Mairanovsky personally executed people with poisons, under the supervision of Pavel Sudoplatov.

The Tuskegee Syphilis Study

Event Tuskegee

The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male was a clinical study, conducted between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama, in which 399 (plus 201 control group without syphilis) poor — and mostly illiterate — African American sharecroppers were denied treatment for Syphilis.

This study became notorious because it was conducted without due care to its subjects, and led to major changes in how patients are protected in clinical studies. Individuals enrolled in the Tuskegee Syphilis Study did not give informed consent and were not informed of their diagnosis; instead they were told they had “bad blood” and could receive free medical treatment, rides to the clinic, meals and burial insurance in case of death in return for participating. In 1932, when the study started, standard treatments for syphilis were toxic, dangerous, and of questionable effectiveness. Part of the original goal of the study was to determine if patients were better off not being treated with these toxic remedies. For many participants, treatment was intentionally denied. Many patients were lied to and given placebo treatments—in order to observe the fatal progression of the disease.

By the end of the study, only 74 of the test subjects were still alive. Twenty-eight of the men had died directly of syphilis, 100 were dead of related complications, 40 of their wives had been infected, and 19 of their children had been born with congenital syphilis.

Unit 731

Unit731S

Unit 731 was a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that undertook lethal human experimentation during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) and World War II. It was responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes carried out by Japanese personnel.

Some of the numerous atrocities committed by the commander Shiro Ishii and others under his command in Unit 731 include: vivisection of living people (including pregnant women who were impregnated by the doctors), prisoners had limbs amputated and reattached to other parts of their body, some prisoners had parts of their bodies frozen and thawed to study the resulting untreated gangrene. Humans were also used as living test cases for grenades and flame throwers. Prisoners were injected with strains of diseases, disguised as vaccinations, to study their effects. To study the effects of untreated venereal diseases, male and female prisoners were deliberately infected with syphilis and gonorrhea via rape, then studied. A complete list of these horrors can be found here.

Having been granted immunity by the American Occupation Authorities at the end of the war, Ishii never spent any time in jail for his crimes and died at the age of 67 of throat cancer.

Nazi Experiments

Dachautests

Nazi human experimentation was medical experimentation on large numbers of people by the German Nazi regime in its concentration camps during World War II. At Auschwitz, under the direction of Dr. Eduard Wirths, selected inmates were subjected to various experiments which were supposedly designed to help German military personnel in combat situations, to aid in the recovery of military personnel that had been injured, and to advance the racial ideology backed by the Third Reich.

Experiments on twin children in concentration camps were created to show the similarities and differences in the genetics and eugenics of twins, as well as to see if the human body can be unnaturally manipulated. The central leader of the experiments was Dr. Josef Mengele, who performed experiments on over 1,500 sets of imprisoned twins, of which fewer than 200 individuals survived the studies. Dr. Mengele organized the testing of genetics in twins. The twins were arranged by age and sex and kept in barracks in between the test, which ranged from the injection of different chemicals into the eyes of the twins to see if it would change their colors to literally sewing the twins together in hopes of creating conjoined twins.

In 1942 the Luftwaffe conducted experiments to learn how to treat hypothermia. One study forced subjects to endure a tank of ice water for up to three hours (see image above). Another study placed prisoners naked in the open for several hours with temperatures below freezing. The experimenters assessed different ways of rewarming survivors.

From about July 1942 to about September 1943, experiments to investigate the effectiveness of sulfonamide, a synthetic antimicrobial agent, were conducted at Ravensbrück. Wounds inflicted on the subjects were infected with bacteria such as Streptococcus, gas gangrene, and tetanus. Circulation of blood was interrupted by tying off blood vessels at both ends of the wound to create a condition similar to that of a battlefield wound. Infection was aggravated by forcing wood shavings and ground glass into the wounds. The infection was treated with sulfonamide and other drugs to determine their effectiveness.

    Not only is it terrifying to think that these things actually happened to real people, but that there were enough incidents to fill a "top ten" list…

    • And those are the ones we know.
      Human race is unbelievable!!!

    • Dorra

      I was looking for articles on Science an Ethics for my students when I found this list and admit it’s one of the most shocking sbjects I have ever read about. feel numb jst imagining th atrocities that these people had to undergo.

      • matt

        I admit it’s cowardly of me to do so from the safety and warmth of my easy chair, but I had to suppress my empathy to get through a lot of this article. It’s unfathomable that these things have and continue to happen.

        • Tom

          It is covertly done with to slowly and completely destroy any individual who is unfortunite.

        fora teecher you’re grammar is pretty bad,

    • Dorra Tuisia

      I feel sorry for all the people who suffered. Unfortunately these atrocities will remain part of our History but what we should do now is make sure similar things never happen again

      • Kamerad

        HA! They will and are happening.

      • Joe

        It is covertly done with highly volatile chemical compound to slowly and completely destroy any individual who is unfortunite.

        Base compound are almost alway introduced to the victim at their homes during sleep.

        Trigger chemicals can then be added where ever the victim happens to be; resturants, social gathering etc to cause a allegic reaction some more deadly than others and it may depend on the individual’s health and genetic resistence to these deadly substance.

        Google “microwave auditory effect” to mimic that “God” is speaking with them…

        WTF is wrong with these MF torturing people to death only to advance their politico agenda and silence anyone who oppose.

    • mamo

      Actualy human rights doesnt allow to dothese experiments ,so yes many technologies what we have now made by US ect. some rich counties used just these information to make for thier profit. for example US should lick Hitler’s toes and be thankfull what US taken from Berlin in 1945, Nazi used Jewish and US used their result :)

  • Ruairi

    number 10 isnt particularly 'evil' in my opinion..we were taught about it in psychology – how evil can it be?!

    • anthony420

      are u kidding me….?

      • CRC

        it still doesn't seem evil. it was a legitimate study without prior knowledge of consequences (if you can call it that). if anything, human nature is the evil component, which the study may suggest to some people.

        • AB

          I agree with that it was not evil at all, they were volenteers

          • rama

            It was also evil since the test subjects were starved and abused otherwise, and had no word in their participation. The hypothermia tests were the mildest–they also did many other tests that disfigured and killed the people. The fact that y’all don’t think that experimenting cruelly on children is puzzling to me…

          • Pandora

            “volenteers”??? would u volenteer for something like that? they took humans and subjected them to crule torture, in experiment for which they did not care the outcome, whether the victim lived or died. If you do not consider this evil, than where do you draw the line?

          • crazed

            Some of you all are daft. The poster is commenting on the 10th evil human experiment which is listed FIRST on the article. The FIRST most evil human experiment is listed 10th.
            The type of experimentation (number 10, listed 1st) isn’t inherently evil as is was conducted with consent. However human nature is the evil component of the experiment.

    • It’s “evil” because of the terrible stress that the subjects were put under, because of the torture involved, because of the inhumanity in the case. It teaches us a lot about human nature and helps explain why Abu Graihb etc have happened, but it was highly unethical.

      • sam

        the fact that rama cant understand what ‘number 10’ means is quite amusing

    • ken

      ummm seriously…. learned helplessness… thats horrible, think about it????

    • Amanda

      You are crazy… this experiment is messed up! The psychologist Philip Zimbardo was obviously an idiot if he didn’t know what would happen in these situations (and even if he had a “hypothesis”, he decided to continue the experiment anyway). Come on… all you have to do is put yourself in that situation. You’re not going to be “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy” from being physically/mentally tortured, starved, and treated like crap! Even though these people volunteered I don’t think they realized how serious it would actually be.

      • If you had actually read the article you’d know that he didn’t “continue the experiment” anyway, but cancelled it after just a few days because it got out of hand; and yes, maybe the volunteers didn’t know what they were in for, but Zimbardo removed two people he thought were actually suffering. I’m sure it was everything but a pleasant experience for them but I seriously doubt that any of them had any lasting issues. It’s certainly a disconcerting experiment, but considering that all these students gave consent to be locked up (for 8 days longer than they actually were) and the experiment was supervised and prematurely cancelled, it’s certainly not one of the “Top 10 Evil” experiments.

  • BHO

    Now thats what i would call an ethical dilemma…Im not sure how i feel about that lol…You have to remeber that 'the ends dont justify the means' no matter how much the information has helped man kind as a whole, the nazis are still evil $%%^£$% !!! FACT!

    Good list J

    • Not only Nazis, Japanese, Americans, Koreans… The entire human race. :(

      • Amanda

        ^ agreed… It’s quite sad really… I wish we could all just get along and stop being so cruel. I’ve actually heard people say “It’s in our nature… we are human.” BS! I would NEVER think of doing any of these acts to someone! That behavior is disgusting! Maybe if you are mentally unstable, it’s your nature, but it isn’t mine!

  • Mom424

    Amazing the cruelty human beings are capable of as soon as they adopt a mind-set of superiority. Germans were superior to the Jews, Homosexuals, and Gypsies that populated the camps. Japanese thought they were superior to everyone. The white doctors in the Tuskeegee Experiment thought themselves superior to the black fellas. (Guarantee it wouldn't have happened with a bunch of white syphilis victims). Prejudice is Evil.

    On a side note, it horrifies me that the dirt bag doctor from South Africa is employed and certified in Canada. I do believe I am going to write some letters. Jamie, could you save me some time, provide me with some sources? Thanks

    • David Thoreau

      It is not just prejudice that drives acts such as these but a seemingly harmless and powerfully unrecognized force: curiosity. Curiosity plus power is the perfect equation for experiments such as these and also for them to be done in an unsympathetic matter. The sad thing is that it is not just a flaw in these individuals or such corporations, but a disease that all man suffer from. There are forces out there that are stronger than our conscience and the ones we proclaim to be evil are the ones that could not find the balance between such forces. I blame not there names, but there hearts and their minds, and their weak souls.

      God bless the ones that were lost due to a curious mind in the wrong position with the wrong tools.

      • Amanda

        If you are curious to conduct the acts that were listed above, you have a huge mental problem! If you can’t use your BRAIN and realize the harm you are committing, you need help!

  • Bob

    Sure puts all the hype about Abu Ghraib in perspective, doesn't it?

    • Randy

      It also makes one wonder how many “empathetic” folks here fainting in horror over this article support partial-birth abortion, as well as aborting a healthy fetus because it’s inconvenient.

      • Styx

        Probably quite a few, since the two are not comparable at all.

  • When I think about Nazi’s experiments and Unit 731’s, and trying to compare and order those two in a list well, I am convinced there shouldn’t be no number two and two firsts…

    • Ria

      I will agree. I think that it may either be to over-saturation of Nazis, but I know that human experiments and atrocities have vastly surpassed that of the Nazis. Killing millions is terrible, but I think that Darfur has reached nearly it's 6 million point of genocide, and sadly the inhumane experimentation (torture, medical) is way beyond what Nazis have done.
      It's sort of sick to think that Nazis were once thought of as the end all of evil, but damn it if humanity doesn't try to outdue itself. Pretty soon Nazis cruelties will simply be the foundation of sick behavior, but definitely not the ultimate evil. That is astonishingly frightening.

  • macculate

    cool…

  • Pascal: I agree with you completely – I the end I put the Nazis first simply because of the fact that they murdered more people than the Japanese.

  • Lizzie

    Appalling examples of mans inhumanity to man. Enough to make you weep at the horror that the victims must have endured.

  • BHO

    I would hate to think that some of the information learned from these sick experiments is actually used today. But then again, if the info did help i suppose you could say that at least the poor people didn’t die for nothing….

    A scary list J…..

  • BHO: as a matter of fact, according to Wikipedia – not only is it used – it is exclusively used in some fields:

    The modern body of medical knowledge about how the human body reacts to freezing to the point of death is based almost exclusively on these Nazi experiments. This, together with the recent use of data from Nazi research into the effects of phosgene gas, have proved controversial and present an ethical dilemma for modern physicians.

    • synchrohobbit

      Actually, human physiologists and the medical community have come to a consensus that this data is not useful, due to the conditions of the human subjects. Plenty of voluntary and safe experimentation has been done since then.

  • romerozombie

    Horrible but interesting.

  • Randall

    Isn’t it time for a happy list? Top Ten Cutest Puppies… something like that?

  • rhea

    i still cant believe that the human race can do that to ech other…its sickening,,,,,,

  • Mom424

    Randall; The last time we had a happy list it spawned flaming and false accusations. Lord, we almost had a war. I feel Emma Peel is responsible. She imprinted on you young, while you were vulnerable.

  • mitchsn

    #% But but but Barbara Walters said these must be the happiest people in the world!

  • mitchsn

    #% = #5

  • Randall

    Mom:

    Yes she did indeed. Several of my girlfriends, over the course of my life, ended up resembling her in one way or another. God, the power of the subconscious. Makes you shiver.

    But I wouldn’t consider the Brunettes list to be a “happy” list anyway. That’s just a horny list.

    I’m working on a nice list about wines though… that would kinda fit the bill.

  • JMurf

    After reading Unit 731, I now think the most horrifying thing to wake up to is seeing your legs and arms mixed up. That’s freaked me out big time

  • romerozombie

    Wine is for pretentious people.

  • Randall: happy list? Are you kidding?! :)

  • Mom424

    Romerozombie; You idiot! Would you consider me pretentious?
    Foul-mouthed, dope smokin’, rockin, and pretentious. I damn near fell off my chair. Now that is the one thing I have never been accused of. I certainly hope you were joking.

  • romerozombie: I am not pretentious and I only drink wine (well – sometimes spirits too).

  • romerozombie

    “This particular wine makes a post-modern faux pas statement”

    PRETENTIOS.

    You guys areb’t pretentious, just wine-tasting in general.

  • Dawn Bearer

    Nazi’s do desearve #1, espeacially Josef Mengele!
    I think one of the most grotesque things he did was rejoinig twins together!

  • romerozombie: oh – I agree with that as being pretentious :) Almost as bad as people who sniff corks :)

  • warrrreagl

    Tuskegee is my hometown. I knew some of the victims of that awful study. Very, very sad.

  • Sephiral

    These are all pretty awful to some degree.

    As for using the information gathered from these experiments, there is no ethical dilemma. We can not change what happened an using or not using the information will make no difference to it. However, using the information may help humanity in some way.

    I actually find the Japanese experiments in particular interesting so I might do some further reading later. Grotesque as that is.

  • Mom424

    “This particular wine makes a post-modern faux pas statement”
    Somebody said that? What the hell does faux pas taste like?
    Should taste like shit. Faux Pas is a mistake, no?
    How about, Red, not too dry, not too sweet, not too vinegary, full-bodied? Thats what I go for. Sometimes I add spicy to the mix just for fun.

  • Cat Skyfire

    The interesting thing about #10 is that, unlike the other 9, all participants were volunteers. Although they didn’t know what fully would happen (nobody did, and the man who ran the experiment ended up being very surprised at how it turned out, and ended it.), they did, at, least, enter into it by choice.

    To me, #10 isn’t evil. It wasn’t intended to be life-scarring, everyone participated of their own free will, and when things did go too far, it was ended, well before it was supposed to. (As opposed to the Tuskagee study, where they knew it’d gotten out, and gone too far, but they still chose to finish the study.)

    http://www.prisonexp.org/ is the web site for the Stanford experiment. It is a fascinating look at how prison can set up certain conditions AND how things can spiral out of control.

  • Randall

    Mom/Jamie:

    No, see… this kid, romerozombie, is pissed at me, and as 18 year olds are wont to do, he is immaturely chasing me on every thread I post in, and sticking in a little mocking statement about anything I say. So I mentioned to Mom that I was working on a list about wine–which, by the way, “romero,” Jamie asked me to write some time ago–and so he coughed up his cutesy “wine is for pretentious people.” Yes, romero, very clever. Go play now kid.

  • Mom424

    Cat Skyfire; I read the study. Amazing how quickly they were able to accomplish so much damage. They certainly could and should have realized sooner than they did just what was happening. The leader of the study should not have participated.

  • Me

    i did number 10 in psychology and i believe if i remeber correctly it also ended up in the guards beating and even rapeing some of the prisoners that to me is quite evil i may be wrong or it may be a similar experiment but thats what i was taught

    • David Thoreau

      That is incorrect young sir. If you read a similar experiment it definitely did not have similar results. No one was raped. And they were all male, non of which being homosexual or having homosexual desires. The test was done from a Marx-based viewpoint/curiosity. Nothing of such sort occurred. However, there were beatings but only minor, I do not believe it is right, simply correcting your presumption.

  • Mom424

    Randall/Randall/Randall; Don’t you ever know when to shut up?
    I, and I imagine, Jamie, are well aware of Romerozombie’s predilection to irritate you. We or at least I was trying to take you out of the loop. Geez, I thought I was the only one with a big-ass mouth.

  • SocialButterfly

    Mom (#11): I had no idea a dirtbag like that lived here either. It sickens me that he is in the same province as me.

  • DiscHuker

    just something i have noticed. on several discussions it has been posited that religion is evil and a scientific mindset is the way forward.

    why is there no “throw the baby out with the bathwater” reaction to scientific thinking when realities like this are brought to light?

    randall: i know that you have posted that religion has led to much good, so i guess this question is only intended for those that believe that religion is only negative.

  • Mom424

    Bob; Large evil is no excuse for small evil. There is no excuse, that is the point.

    • David Thoreau

      Correct, there is no excuse, only reason. Most of which we do not understand with our feeble range of perspectives.

  • Cat Skyfire

    Mom424 – When I read about it, the leader of the study (speaking from the advantage of hindsight) was surprised, and in some ways horrified, that he HAD become a part of it. That he had, without realizing it, taken on the role of prison warden, to the point that he was upset that the real police would not help with a rumored breakout. It was not his intent to be a part of it, but it did occur.

    One thing that he also indicated was he was surprised when people DIDN’T quit. Remember, nobody was an actual prisoner OR guard, and could walk away at any time. Several did just that but most did not.

    For me, this one still isn’t an evil. Unfortunate, but not evil. Evil would have taken more control, an enforced lack of free will (such as things done to pows), and a disregard for the harms once they became serious in the desire to ‘complete the study’ (as in Tuskagee).

  • Mom424

    Cat – maybe I misread it, it was a while ago. I thought he “agreed” to take on the role when someone else stepped down. If not, I agree; Not evil, ill-advised, improperly supervised, and mostly unfortunate.

    They used to do testing on orphans back in the late 1700s for things like cholera and yellow fever. Take someone you knew was sick (and doing things like puking and having diarrhea all over himself) and send him into the orphanage, encouraging the children top play in his excrement. Then, once you had a large, captive population with the disease, only treat half of them and leave the rest to die.

  • romerozombie

    Don’t flatter yourself Randall, I’m not chasing you. I was just making a comment. I’ve got better things to do. Honestly!

  • rational

    great list, i haven’t head of a few of these like project 4.1, interesting…. nd Bob Abu Ghraib is not human experimentation, its POWs who are being subjected to different proven interrogation techniques because they have info we need. Now I do not agree with the Iraq, war, I hate bush yata yata yata, but if our military (which i strongly support no matter what the executive office decides to do with them) needs info, they can’t just be like “hey man can you please tell us where you guys plan on bombing next? hey we’ll give you a cookie if you tell us!” yea its tough but i mean stress positions and water boarding hardly resemble the horrors that the nazis or japanese inflicted on people during there times. also the stanford prison experiment i dont really beleive belongs on here, it was actually an intriguing experiment that went in a completely oppposite direction that the controlers has expected, and the results were actually pretty amazing and we learned alot about human nature (that a lot of us are truly dicks on the inside haha)

    • David Thoreau

      The problem with man now days is that we compare our own acts to the acts of others. Surrendering our conscience to the actions of those we might not even know. You should not compare the right or wrongs of our countries actions to the rights or wrongs of another. They have different beliefs, different perspectives; they might see us as the more evil. WE as humans should not fight to choose the lesser of 2 evils but to abolish them completely, even though realistically, this is virtually impossible.

      HOWEVER, you make very strong points and are also very true.

  • srichards

    i agree with BHO, very scary to think that these things happened and their is a chance that it can still happen or god forbid is in fact happening at this moment

  • BishopWhiteT

    I used to work for a guy named that was in Auschwitz as a teenager. The nazis placed a gun to his head and said if he made any noise he would be shot, then proceded to rip out both of his testicles without anesthetic. He later escaped, although the rest of his family was killed. His story was made into a book, which I can’t remember the name of as it was named after the number that was scrawled onto his arm, 8020something or other. The extent of evil is truly unbelievable.

    • HDT

      The extent of curiosity is the true issue.

  • BishopWhiteT: I just can’t begin to comprehend the kind of mind that would allow a person to do that.

  • BHO

    Its probably very naive to hope that stuff like this isnt happening anymore. We can hope tho….

  • nightjet

    The one common thread that runs through each of these stories, (and many more like them) is that each was conducted with the blessing and direction of government. This is why we need to take as much power as possible away from government and the mob. Even if the people we elect (or that seize power) are the nicest people in the world, ther is still the chance that they or their successors could engage in these atrocities. Even here in the US we are not immune from this kind of horror. Just because we don’t hear about it, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

  • Nitta

    The experiments sound horrible… Especially Unit 731 and the Nazi ones. However, what I find even more troubling is the fact that experiments like those are still being performed on animals, and so many people find that to be okay. :(

  • AlyshiaH

    I learned about number 10 in my high school phyc class… very twisted stuff. To the point that my messed up teacher did a mock run of the experiment every day for one class period for a month.. yeah that was creepie, all i have to say is thank god that i was a gaurd, not a prisoner. Couldnt make me one, i was preggo at the time. And we do need a happy list. 10 cutest kitten pictures on photobucket? that would be nice… or puppies.. any cute baby animal… even bunnies would do, sence ester is comeing up. Jah, we need a happy list on here soon!

  • Joss

    Nitta – You find it more troubling that experiments are being done on animals? Not that I agree animal experimentation (I don’t), but it’s amazing that you find animal experimentation “more troubling” than human experimentation.

  • King of the Horizon

    its quite ironic the person the person chosen to do experiment 9 was called mary tudor.one of the most evil women in history

  • R. Nixon

    BishopWhiteT:

    My wife did the same exact thing to me when we got married.

  • PT

    Sorry Nitta but for me you can cut up as many animals as you like if in the end you can save a single human life.
    The worst thing about this list is how facinating it is it makes me feel dirty just to be interested in it. The only solace as with all history is that the more we learn from the past the more chance we have of avoiding the same horrible mistakes

  • Kathryn

    Disturbing, but I am still about equally disturbed by the types of animal testing still going on to this very day. So I agree with Nitta. In this day and age, yes, it is completely messed up stuff like this STILL happens to animals. You think us humans would have learned from human experiments like this that experimenting on any living creature without it’s consent is wrong.

  • Joss

    R. Nixon – That’s not funny.

  • loseitbonkers

    i think that anyone involved with anything like this needs to die as soon as possible.
    what a stain on the earth.

  • Adia

    Joss: I think what Nitta meant was that it’s sad that these experiments are STILL going on even though it is with animals. Which is sad.

    I’ve always been kind of interested in this stuff. I kind of want to be a criminal psychologist. If we can get into sick people’s minds we can stop them. A few of these things were almost enough to make me throw up. Sometimes people make me sad.

  • sweetpico

    I don’t agree with ten being evil either. It wasn’t intended to be evil… was it? Anyways, the Nazis suck. They definately deserve number one, cruel bastards! Great list! I honestly became a little sick reading it! :(

  • baobao

    Because the experiments are so evil, they have been banned in this generation and may never occur again. Given that fact, if so many experiments were done in the past, then the results must have been documented somewhere… Does anybody know if books have been written from those studies?

    Not that I agree with that kind of research, but if it's already a done-deal, then it would be educative to share the results or publish them. It will allow people to better understand human biology and may be very useful to the medical expertise in finding cures to human diseases.

    Last but not least, it would make those that lost their lives (for the experiments and studies), to have served a good cause, rather than die for nothing… So where are the results?

    • Sam

      I do not agree at all with using data collected from such experiments to benefit anybody. To willingly use data processed from evil condones the act and allows the justification of doing it again. The data needed can be and should be collected using other methods NOT harmfull to any living thing.

  • I am afraid I agree with PT – 1,000 animals deaths is fine by me if it saves one human life.

  • King of the Horizon

    jfrater:a lot of animal testing today tho is just unnessary as you can test most drugs on artficially grown compounds

  • King of the Horizon

    sorry that made no sense.i meant there are plenty of artificial alternitives to substitute animal testing because some like the experiments carried out by the people who make mars are just pointless

  • King of the Horizon

    to be exact they cut open the legs of live rats to check the efect of chocolate on bloodflow.its not on youtube butill sift through peta later to find it

  • Randall

    King – Most *medical* testing cannot be accomplished via artificial means and “substitutes.” PETA makes this debate about cosmetic companies and the like, and then spreads the falsehood that there are substitutes for drug testing on animals–which is simply not true. There is no adequate, safe substitute or computer simulation that can, as yet, really replace test animals.

    • JennaTheHomicidal

      Replace test animals with death row inmates. It would be more accurate and it wouldn't be a waste of life.

  • Michael Llaneza

    Prof. Zimbardo has a book out, The Lucifer Effect, that describes the experiment in some detail. It also covers Milgram and Abu Ghraib. Fascinating read, he appears to be honestly still upset with himself for getting dragged into the prison mindset along with the subjects. In an unusual development, he’s done the talk show circuit promoting his book twice – I’ve seen him on the Daily Show twice about a year apart.

  • King of the Horizon: as a result of the horrific tests above, international law does not permit human experimentation to occur until animal testing has occurred first. If you take away animal testing, you take away many drugs that may be of benefit to man. It doesn’t matter whether Peta claims that there are alternatives – the law does not allow their use in place of animals.

  • Thompson

    What I found sad was #5 wheres the parents tried to save the childrens lives,thats shows how much your parents love you :),but imagine how cruel theses people are.Watch,doing horrible stuff to other people.

  • Cedestra

    I remember ready about based on Dr. Josef Mengele’s experiments with twins- I think told from the first person of one of those twins. It was fiction, but still delivered a lot of truth.
    And I politely disagree with # 63. While you can’t put me in the same boat as PETA, I really can’t see humans having the capacity or right to judge animals as “inferior” and then be able to kill them. And, yes, I wear leather shoes, but I’m a vegetarian, so I’m only partially a hypocrite.

  • Csimmons

    I shudder at the nazi experiments and the 731’s.

  • Bob

    The horseplay that went on at Abu Ghraib (and that’s really all it was–jackassery and horseplay) doesn’t even begin to approach evil.

  • Riley

    As a university student with a minor in psychology, you would be amazed at the amount of unethical studies that have been done. Until the last few decades, most of the psychological knowledge we know was because of these experiments. Its sad to think that it took soooo long for people to realize how wrong it can be to subject people to these experiments.

    The war crimes are different. They were done with a purpose of hurting the other people while testing. We all know war is wrong, we all know persecution against others for being different is ignorant, but every society in history has committed it. For example, the Nazi’s purposely intended to hurt their victims, and deliberately disregarded them as humans.
    My point is that tests done which were not supposed to be harmful like psych experiments (#10, 9, 8, 7, 4, 3) are in turn very harmful. These doctors thought they were doing the right thing, and they really believed to be helping. Being unintentionally unethical, and evil is terrible.
    The war crimes knew what they were doing, and they intended to hurt. It makes me think what we might be doing today that is intended to be helpful, but 50 years from now we will all realize the harm we caused.
    I’m not saying that the war crimes are not evil, or terrible, but that its obvious they are, where as the others were not quite to obvious until after the fact, and the harm was done.

    I just hope that in 50 years we, as the Westernized world, don’t go, “well hell, I will I knew then what I know now.”

  • Riley

    Damn, I meant to say:
    “I WISH I knew then what I know now”

  • DiscHuker

    nobody has interacted with my question at #35

  • Bob: so true – they are lucky to have just been waterboarded!

  • SpookyMulder

    The Stanford Prison Experiment was not meant to do harm to the volunteers. Once they realized that the volunteers were taking it too far they stopped the experiment. I don’t think it can be considered evil. Good list though. Scary.

  • Wanderer

    DiscHuker:

    most people like to stay away from the religion thing, but I will try to be as unbiased as possible.

    As someone who doesn’t particularly follow any religion, (not that i have problems with people who do), there have been a lot of horofic things done with the use of a religion as their backing. Now a religion can help societies, but there are many times that people get very fanatical (spelling?) about their religions. most of those things were usually done during mass conversians, or attempting to convert others. And the real thing isn’t the religion itself. I remember one time i was at a fair, and my brother was looking at some stand that has some christianity theme to it, which a little pop up on it. I dont remember exactly what it said, accept for the last pop up, where it stated god would only love you if you worshiped him and gave your life to him. My brother asked if this was true, and my mother said “God loves all people and would want you to live your life the way you want to live it”, and the person working the stand exploded at her. I mean that seemed a bit extreme, but was my mother really that wrong? possibly, but it doesn’t seem like its that far out of line.

    In my eyes, the bible is kind of like a book of fables. Stories with morals, to help show the errors of certain ways of behaving, so that if people adapted those morals they would be able to live together in a peaceful way.

    • JFL

      Hi Wanderer, I think u did well in being non-offensive haha. But it’s not necessarily that God will agree with anything you do, though He most definitely He loves all ppl. He allowed us all to exist at our given times and I think it’s impossible for Him to not cherish His creation. (side: i just watched "The Cross and the Switchblade", trus story and issues teens face, it gives you a better idea that he DOES love, but that sin isn’t tolerated because it by no means brings about good purposes)

    • JFL

      …I agree that religion has screwed up *royally*, but to say that God backs it just as demented; the human ego is responsible. The Bible has answers not to approve of, but to explain why we are enduring this hellish situation, and gives the only lasting hope for the world to come. The story of the Bible begins and ends with a common thread much deeper than moral teaching, the main refute being the passages prophesying of and gospels telling the life and mission of J.C., it suggests eternal relevance.
      lol as for the Christian stand, that is false theology, but maybe they weren’t intending it to be so. It's more like, God only calls those who love him his children (who respond to His invitation and WANT to be of His inheritance) that's dif.

  • Mom424

    jfrater; Bob; You guys are wrong. Once you head down that slippery slope, you become more and more like the bad guys. And the stuff I have read that happened/is happening at Abu Ghraib is not horse-play. Even the mild stuff, the stuff that Steve-O and the rest of the idiots from Jack-Ass would do, is horrifying if you are muslim. I know of a few folks that were detained there that did nothing. They are the wrong color or from the wrong country or for that matter travelled through the wrong country. You cannot act from a position of Moral Superiority if you engage in those behaviors. Which is exactly what The USA is doing. If they are doing this on an American Military Base, what the hell are they doing elsewhere?

    DiscHuker; I agree, I find no ethical dilemma in using the info that has already been collected, even if in unethical ways. Maybe some good can come of evil. If that information saves even 1 life, its better than nothing at all coming of their suffering.

    Re Animal Testing; sorry but it is a necessity. Not for cosmetics, (Avon and the Bunnies), but for medical testing. As long as the folks are as humane as possible and do their best to minimize suffering, I have no problem. By the way, even scientists have hearts, ya know. They are human, they don’t want to cause unnecessary pain to the monkeys, rats, bunnies, etc.

  • SocialButterfly/Mom – I can see the building he works in from home. That freaks me out. I can’t beleive he was able to be certified here!

    Terifying list. I agree with nightjet, it is amazing that these were conducted with blessings from the government. Makes you wonder what secret stuff is happening right now.

  • Mom424

    jfrater; bob; I forgot to mention something. Those gaurds at Abu Ghraib are treating their inmates as inferior specimens of humanity. Exactly the justification used by many participating in the experiments on this list. The fact that you don’t find this troubling is as troubling as what’s going on. People never learn.

  • Mom424: Treating them so is not even remotely close to having their legs cut off and sewn to their necks. Surely you see the difference. I believe more troubling is the fact that you consider these equal.

  • billyrules!

    In 8th grade i did a study on the experiments that Josef Mengele conducted in Auschwitz, i read some really horrifying accounts that haunt me to this day. Whenever i hear the word “evil” i think of him.

  • Mom424

    Jamie; I never said they were the same. I said that once you head down that slippery slope you become more like the bad guys. Treating any “group” of people as less than yourself was used to justify the kinds of behaviour on this list. You don’t find it troubling that the young kids (the guards are young) are behaving much like the experiment in #1? Big evil does not excuse small evil. I guarantee you that it is going to get worse.

  • Mom424: no – because the difference is the young guards are dealing with suspected terrorists – not their fellow students.

  • Wanderer

    even if a person is a suspected terrorist or my best friend, do i really have the right to do evil acts to either of them?

  • kiwiboi

    Animal testing ?

    Sheesh…reminds me of the time I bought some skin cream. On the bottle it said “This Product Has Not Been Tested on Animals”.

    …so I took it home and tested it on the dog ;)

  • Mom424

    jfrater; that is the point isn’t it. “Suspected terrorists” not convicted, not proved. The only thing for sure is that they’re Muslim. The guards aren’t treating them as suspects but as less than human scum. Thats why there are rules of military conduct to prevent these kinds of excesses. Conveniently they only apply on American Soil. Funny how its fine and dandy to break your own laws as long as you’re not at home. So shitty ass behavior is Ok as long as your motives are good? No, either you believe in basic human rights or you don’t. You can’t have it both ways.

  • babygirl2882

    There is a book called Children of the Flames about the twins that were tested on. Very interesting and heart breaking.

  • kiwiboi: hahahah classic!

  • kiwiboi

    Mom – I’m with you. Actually, I find it unbelievable that GW Bush so openly flaunts/circumvents both constitutional and basic human rights, not to mention the condoning of torture.

    9/11 was an outrage of such a magnitude that it has screwed up our moral compasses. I’m convinced that some day in the future, many Americans (who are generally very civic-minded) will look back in horror and wonder how they tolerated such an ass-flannel of a president (and his administration).

    Show us the WMD’s George !!!

    But…back to the original topic – there is no viable excuse for torture.

  • Mom424

    Kiwiboi; None whatsoever. We had our own mini break with reality during the FLQ crisis. War measures act briefly suspended human rights. No waterboarding or torture but tons of folks jailed without charge, curfews and the like. Nothing causes irrational behavior like panic.

  • tikilounge

    What is sad it this sort of stuff happens to animals everyday that is just as horrific and unnecessary and savage. There is no excuse for torture human or animal.

    • Gahahaha

      I agree! I hope nothing like that ever happens to me though.

  • Lulu

    It’s so sickening knowing what one human can do to another, knowing what several can do to several thousand is unimaginable.
    Although the whole of these crimes are horrendous this part got to me –
    [quote] Kwon Hyok claims to have watched one family of 2 parents, a son and a daughter die from suffocating gas, with the parents trying to save the children using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation for as long as they had the strength. [/quote]
    As a parent I can only ‘imagine’ what they were going through.
    What a sick world we live in, and to think these are only crimes that have been documented, imagine what hasn’t been made public knowledge and unimaginably what still happens without our knowledge in this day and age.

  • sdggrant

    Crazy shit indeed. I don’t think number 10 should be called “Evil” though. I mean once it was clear that it was getting out of hand, the experiment was stopped. Looks like there were good intentions with that experiment but the researchers underestimated the BRUTAL side of human nature. NUmber 1 and number 2 are just plain sick and evil…although, you would be surprised at how useful that information was after the Allies won WW2. Im not saying that it is justified, but atleast SOME tiny sliver of good came out of all the horror and suffering.

  • Lori

    DiscHuker, You made the comment about everyone blaming religion for evil and not science. Well, here’s the deal. Science is a tool, not a philosophy. It does not teach morals and values. It only helps us to find out how the world works. Religion on the other hand, is supposed to teach morals and ethics and yet there is no evidence that religious people are any more moral than non-religious people. I know I’m opening a can of worms here, but I contend that there is no benefit from religion that cannot be had by secular means. Just my two cents. Hope this doesn’t start at comment war. Oh, and I’m having a nice glass of red wine right now. Not because I’m pretentious, but because I like the taste.

    • Fusionfire

      Lori science does inflect a moral code on society its called Darwinism "survival of the fitest" a value sytem utilized by Nitche as well as Hitlers Eugenics. The science of behaviorism portends to explain the social dynamics of humans as compared to primates. Do not dismiss science as a benigne tool . Idealy science should serve human kind not dictate to it. There is no golden rule in nature. Do unto others as u would want done unto you. Not very scientific. But true

  • Lulu

    Being banned means nothing at all, it doesn’t mean it won’t happen again, hey we are in the 21st century, does that mean we are immune by atrocities ? I realise you say ” may never happen again”, but did you read that some of these atrocities happened as late as the 80’s ?
    Of course it will happen and probably is happening already, when we will find out is another matter.
    I also don’t beleive anything is a good cause if the ‘test’ was against someones will.

  • It’s extremely sad to see what human beings are willing to do to each other. It’s so wrong

  • Drelo

    I think that Lori is right about there being good and bad people that subscribe to religion, and good and bad people that don’t. But there is a benefit to religion for some people. Personally, I benefit not from religion but from acting true to myself and true to others. Honesty and kindness are not religious values, they are human ones.

    Obviously, the people that conducted these experiments (except for #10) were not human but monster. Sickening. Good list though. We can’t forget the past. We need to remember what not to do, and how to prevent things like this from happening again.

  • Bad News

    …and I’m having an excellent $8 Amador County zinfandel.

    DiscHuker, the fact that science can be used for wicked purposes only proves that religion does not hold a monopoly on evil. Although, you know, there are some fine believers out there, I’m sure.

    Mom424: You make an excellent case against torture of any sort.

  • JwJwBean

    AS soon as I read the name of the list, I thought of the Stanford University Prison Experiment. I also thought about the pschologist that experimented on his own child.

  • Laura

    fivestring63, would you prefer we not try to examine the causes for these atrocities and prevent them from ever recurring? Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Should these people and incidents go unpunished or forgotten?

  • Drogo

    Scientists who do this rationalize, they convince themselves that in the long run, mankind will benefit from the torture of a few. They brainwash themselves into thinking that it’s right to do it. Then when it’s too late they feel remorse.

    Here is the official website (written by the Psychologist that lead the study)-before commenting on the validity of it being an “evil” experiment, please read through it-watch the clips and THEN decide. http://www.prisonexp.org/
    Psychological torture can be as devistating as physical. And so you know, as is stated on the official site, this is the first study of it’s kind, with 100% willing participants-no one knew the first thing about what the outcome would be. I find it so easy to judge the study/the psychologist without really knowing the full scope-compared to the virtual imprisonment and non-consentual nature of the other experiements on the list, I would consider it to have had DIRE consequences, but I wonder: Is evil dictated by direct careless disregard for human life or simply the outcome of the act itself?

    I was *this* close to studying under Dr. Zimbardo at the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology. Not an evil guy by any means; he’s actually rather pleasant. And as evil as the experiment ended up being, the results are to this day regularly cited in most social psychology courses.

    Mel: I’ve heard about that experiment!!!! I was so shocked, I couldn’t imagine going through that, I would have been traumatized.

  • SlickWilly

    Mel: The craziest thing about the Milgram experiment was that the vast majority of people continued to administer the shocks per the instructions of the experimenter, even after it appeared that the shock recipient had already passed out or died. Interesting to note that compliance went up considerably when the experimenter wore a white lab coat. Just shows how obedient some people are to authority figures. I don’t think it was evil though; no one was actually getting hurt. Unethical? Absolutely. Evil? Eh…I personally don’t think so.

  • Mel

    SlickWilly – neither Milgram’s nor Zimbardo’s experiments were evil in their inception, unlike the others on this list, but they both produced horrible effects.

    Imagine living the rest of you life thinking that you were capable of killing someone? Because, for one monent, you thought you actually had.

    You suddenly realise that the person you thought you were and the person you really are are 2 completely different people, and that can be mind-shattering.

  • SlickWilly

    Mel: Yes, but I think it is important to recognize that quality about ourselves and try to prevent anything serious from stemming from that tendency in the future, rather than to live in willfull ignorance and only find out later that we are capable of such things. The results of both experiments were unethical, but extremely useful in diagnosing the human condition. I would say that – in the example of those two specific experiments – that the positive benefits outweigh the negative.

  • satori

    the experiments in this list are gut wrenching.

    experiment #6 – So basically, if a man is attracted to another man, let’s turn him into a woman…..then there won’t be any homosexuality in our army. [email protected]#ing brilliant. I cannot believe that the doctor responsible for the forced sex changes and chemical castrations in South Africa is now a professor in Calgary, Alberta, Canada!!! I wouldn’t mind letting the professor be the lone participant in the recreation of his past experiment.

    long time reader, first time caller.

    as a buddhist, i am disinclined to see things in what i view as a primitive dichotomy of good and evil. Evil simply does not exist, to me. I have yet to see an example of human behaviour called ‘evil’ I could not qualify through scientific deduction. What it is, is ignorance backed by power. The people doing those experiments were ignorant enough to believe they had the right to, and empowered enough by their surroundings to believe ‘they’ were actually the good guys. They saw themselves as being the good guys. To me- that’s more insane than ‘evil’.

    again, being a buddhist, i find the idea of causing animals undue suffering to be terribly ignorant, but it is also ignorant of me and any else who claim so, to deny that in the proper research fields, that testing that occurred has and may in the future, literally save millions of humans.

    i don’t place humans over animals, but the truth is also that animals are tested on to advance the fields of animal health. the real quandary to me is how to achieve valid results without ever resorting to subjecting someone against their will as a test subject.

    one idea springs to mind: heavily violent criminal offenders; in exchange for good behaviour and willing, informed consent before trial, would it be immoral to offer them incentives (say, extra yard time, or a private tv/computer) to take part in non lethal tests?

    i have several friends who took part in end stage testing in toronto and were paid quite well for it and none suffered anything more than a headache for their troubles. but then we are back to the dilemma… it was end stage because any harm would have been detected in the animals previously tested on.

    so rather than bicker about dichotomies- why don’t you/we try to pool our creative intellect into finding ways to subvert this paradigm and at the same time still reap the benefits. any suggestions?

  • Mom424

    bushidoboy; I see no way to eliminate animal testing. Even if convicts were somehow included in the pool for human testing, animal testing must come first. Just because something is innocuous when tested on cell cultures and the like does not make it safe in a living/breathing system.

    The difficulty with using convicts in the pool of human test subjects is considerable. Is it truly an informed choice when the subject is incarcerated? What is the compensation? More yard time? Better food? Conjugal visits? I can see coercion becoming a perceived problem if not a real one. Also generally speaking, convicts are not often top of the gene pool; how intelligent do you have to be to provide informed consent?

    Sorry, animals are the way to go at least for the foreseeable future and likely well beyond that. Progressing from the test tube to living beings must begin somewhere and Dogs, Bunnies, Chimps, and rats are preferable to humans. I would like to agree that all living things have equal value, but its not true. Even humans are not all of equal value, take a look at the evil men list.

  • Denzell

    nr 2 is worse than 1, placing them as the worst simply because its the nazis is against the purpose of this list.

    i’ve got twin sisters ? so i think we should be more like dr mengele ! stop animal testing & test on twins ! it’s better for everyone in the long run trust me

  • EXE

    Haha sidvee.
    My brother and sister are twins and my father is Jewish– our family is orignally from Autria. So when I think of Dr. Mengele, it gives me shivers.
    And I disagree with the people who say that #2 is worse than #1. Mengele was as equally bad as the Japanese in Manchuria; many of his base activities were not put up here. He tried to prove that Noma, a disease found among the malnutrition-suffering children in the camps, was caused by genetic inferiority. Here is a quote copied from http://www.wikipedia.org
    “Mengele occupied his time with other numerous acts of the most base cruelty, including the dissection of live infants; the castration of boys and men without the use of an anesthetic; and the administering of high-voltage electric shocks to women inmates under the auspices of testing their endurance. On one occasion Mengele even sterilized a group of Polish nuns with an X-ray machine, leaving the celibate women horribly burned.”
    I am horrified at 1-5 equally.
    I will say that 2, 4, and 5 may be worse out of the sheer volume of the tortured. Many are still suffering the repercussions of Japan’s attacks; they spread the bubonic plague by dropping fleas from low-flying airplanes and isolating disease-causing-bacteria and putting it in bombs to be dropped on villages. They designed a disease that causes open wounds on the legs that fester and never heal; survivors still have them today and many can barely walk.
    It was the Japanese in Manchuria who figured out how long it takes for people to die of starvation by forcibly starving Chinese.
    They injected horse piss into people’s kidneys.
    They hung people uside-down until they choked.
    They put people in centrifuges until they choked.

    1 and 2 are both truly horrible. The descriptions of the japanese vivisecting people without anesthesia are truly horrible. To those who say there is not ethical dilemma in using the data from these studies, keep in mind that one reason the director, Shiro Ishii, got of scott free was that the Americans wanted those records. As a result, the progenitor of one of the most appaling cases of mass torture paid no price for his crimes.

    What are you people crying about? We should do more of these experiments. Destructive analysis can be very revealing. Science and morals have nothing to do with each other. Besides, many experiments like these are done on animals now so it’s not like this type of research just vanished after WWII.

  • Fayyaad

    I’ve linked to this post in my blog

    I’ve also linked in my blog post to the Milgram experiment as a related experiment. It seems a lot of these experiments were done for either of a couple of reasons:
    a) the belief that the experimenter was superior to the victim
    b) scientific query makes it morally right, or at the very least, morally acceptable
    c) the victims weren’t seen as human

    Make of that what you will.

    It’s interesting to note the degree to which sociopathic behaviors pervade society. It’s been said that a single person is only capable of viewing a finite number of people as individuals, and all others are classified in bulk by the mind based on their occupation or perceived effect on the person in question. This is the only reason I can imagine that a person would be capable of committing such atrocities against others.. They don’t view them as equals, or even individuals. I’m sure there are those that truly lack the ability to empathize with others.. But I’m equally certain that the majority of abusive individuals simply justify their actions with themselves to soothe the conscience.

    Amazing the cruelty human beings are capable of as soon as they adopt a mind-set of superiority. Germans were superior to the Jews, Homosexuals, and Gypsies that populated the camps. Japanese thought they were superior to everyone. The white doctors in the Tuskeegee Experiment thought themselves superior to the black fellas. (Guarantee it wouldn’t have happened with a bunch of white syphilis victims). Prejudice is Evil.

    On a side note, it horrifies me that the dirt bag doctor from South Africa is employed and certified in Canada. I do believe I am going to write some letters. Jamie, could you save me some time, provide me with some sources? Thanks

    In a similar way to the way americans perceive the USA as the best country in the world and superior to everyone else, especially the middle east?

    About #10, I think that goes to show that #1- Criminals who are not violent probably don’t come out of our current system in a state that would make them better able to be productive members of society…#2- Better screening of personality types for positions of authority in the penal system should be required- not just to protect prisoners, but if it brings out the worst in a guard, if they are prone to sadistic behavior, it may well carry over into their lives at home- affecting loved ones, many who may be children, elderly or frail.
    I can’t recall the name , but in high school psych class learned about an experiment done on orphaned children- it was to determine whether babies needed to be held, cuddled and talked to to develop correctly. Half got love and affection from nurse surrogates- the half who did not had much higher mortality rates, developed at a delayed rate overall, and some ill effects were permanent with regard to social development.

    while we can’t erase or rewrite history, we should at least use this knowledge gained after analysing for biases (as in Nazi euthanasia programs). this after all might be the only consolation for all those souls who lost their lives. at least wherever they are, their lives would not have been lost in vain. that i feel is the only practical thing we ca do besides ensuring that history does not get repeated, as it has always proven to be in the past.

    Some say that prejudice is evil but prejudice is simply uninformed imagination and supposition.If you think that you have never been prejudiced in your life; think again.Its impossible not be prejucided because every prejudice you have is based upon supposition and is an axiom and generalisation which is necessary to hold before you can determine its validity.Everyone makes generalisations.You absolutely have to in order to introduce a subject, and the very idea that you can ban it or legislate against it is a prejudice is in itself and a manifestation of evil.Only evil is evil,yet its manifestations are infinite and every evil is a parasite of good.Everyone has the potential for evil and everyone can be corrupted, if not immediately, them by degrees.
    We are constantly under attack by the forces of evil and evil’s greatest triumphs come when they disguise themselves as good.No one is immune from it , and no one can say they have control over it.At best you can only try and keep it in check by reassessing your beliefs and tenets.If you don’t know what good is then you don’t know what evil is.You know light by the absence of darkness and you know darkness by the absence of light.Knowing one helps you know the other.
    The greatest of evils are the seven deadly sins; Pride, Lust, Anger,Greed,Vanity, Envy, and Sloth.

    The sad thing is these types of medical testings will probably continue on until the end of the world. As you look back at history, the only way to medically advance is well doing stuff like this. The only way to find out if it works or not is to test it on humans in which most cases and tests, they die. However from all these horrendous medical tests, we have found ways to cure and treats diseases, infections, wounds etc.

  • a_student

    what about all of the psychic experimentation that went on? Extra sensory perseption, you know what I mean?

  • lrigD

    Living in the Netherlands, I’ve visited Auschwitz and I’ve generally ‘been close’ to seeing the consequences of WWII, even in my own family, even in this time, and even as a mere 16-year old. There have been many a night when I cried for all those people…

    We all know things are going on we don’t know about. We don’t know because we don’t want to know ( “Ich habe nicht gewusst, the reply of Germans living near concentration camps when asked whether they’d never seen anything: “I did not know.”) or because the truth is kept from us. That makes a list such as this one all the more important. It is horrible to read about all this, but I think we should know.

    I think JFrater said somewhere that *something* (a medical procedure or something) is almost entirely based on knowledge the Nazis got with their experiments. I forgot what exactly it was, it might have been the treatment against hypothermia thing. It makes me feel very strange… But then, at least those few people didn’t die for nothing.

    I know that from testing on humans new treatments and cures have come, but I just don’t see the connection with what the Nazis and Japanese did (as the most noticeable ones). They did medical experiments, yes, but many were simply for the joy of killing and subjecting the victims to intense pain. Medical testing as is conducted now is (hopefully) done wih the subject’s permission, and with the subject having enough information to make a decision based on true facts.

    I apologize if my English seems strange, by the way… I’m not native, and it is sometimes hard to voice my thoughts so that others understand.

  • mcswiggle

    One of the reasons that the Japanese atrocities were so much worse than the the Nazi ones in that the Japanese people and nation continue to deny the existence and utter immorality of their war-time conduct. Senior Nazis justly had to stand trial and face death for their actions, while German civilians were often forced by the allies to actually look at what had been going on in concentration camps. Much of the country was utterly obliterated, and no German could not hide from the consequences of what had been done in their name.

    In sickening contrast Japan has managed to convince itself that it was a victim of the war. The Emperor and most of the country’s infastructure survived the war totally unscathed. There was no admission of guilt or proper apology, something that still causes disbelief and hatred from its neighbours. Even now Japanese politicians routinely visit memorials set up in honour of their fallen dead from WW2…they feel no guilt or shame in this, and care not how much it offends other people. In fact they are still stuck in a state of denial.

    A good example of this came after the release of a film about unit 731; its Japanese director suffered death threats and the general public was furious at this minor admission of guilt. Even on this thread you can see people claiming the atomic bombs were somehow more evil than what Japan did during the war.

    That is actually the biggest and most immoral lie ever uttered. As the war in Europe ended Hitler sent a u-boat filled with depleted uranium to Japan, and who can doubt that Japan would gladly have dropped nuclear bombs on every major city in America (and the world)if it had the abilty?

    The American’s selected two fairly minor cities to minimize casualties, and gave Japan a chance to surrender before the second bomb was reluctantly dropped. The Japanese would never have given any country these concessions if the roles were reversed. From Pearl Harbour to the rampage across Asia to the dreadful treatment of POW’s, Japan set new standards of immoral behaviour and basically got away with it.

    Even the defence of the home islands that caused the US to use atomic bombs was inspired by immoral and blatant lies, with Japanese citizens being told that US soldiers would torture, rape and kill on sight. That was a pure evil lie spead by the military and politicians who did everything they could to avoid taking responsibilty for their heinous actions. It was this sort of last ditch immorality that necessitated the use of the atom bombs.

    China and North Korea have built themselves into military states not to antagonise the West but rather to make sure that they never again suffer the horrors that Japan inflicted upon them in WW2. I for one have a lot of sympathy for North Korea; if I lived near Japan I would want my country to be able to defend itself against Japan, and atomic weapons seem to be the best defence against the unhealed evil that is Japan.

  • Jeez

    I just HAD to write this…:

    11. Mom424: your saying “Japanese thought they were superior to everyone” is actually not true. This is something the American government spread during WWII in their propaganda “documentaries” where they depicted the Japanese as being a people who reverred their emperor as if he were a god, being totally inhumane and having no moral standards whatsoever. This is of course exaggerated, and served only to reinforce the American’s hate for the enemy and love for their own country. I’m surprised nobody reacted on this and everyone thus seems think it is the truth (since I’ve seen it appear on many other websites as well). Also: I’ve studied Japanese history, society and culture and have seen this movie I’m talking about (unfortunately I can’t remember the title) and I assure you, I had a good laugh while watching it. It’s one of the most racist, discriminating things I’ve ever seen about the Japanese (and I’ve seen a LOT), and it’s funny because so many people actually believe(d) it.
    Just to avoid angry reactions: I’m not saying the Japanese are not guilty of war crimes, but the truth is, America wasn’t easy on the Japanese either. It’s not a matter of “we were right and they were wrong”. America was wrong in dropping those bombs (killing innocent people is wrong no matter what, Politibru)and Japan was wrong by even starting that whole Sino-Japanese war. But then again, who am I to pass judgment on them? There are so many factors we don’t know about and most people will always only hear one end of the story, so nobody can really judge anyone. I’m only stating my personal opinion here.

Just trying to see all this in a different way. Plus i know its not ethically correct so leave me the speech. I cud not personally do these horrible things but i find it very interesting

    think of all the medical knowledge that came from Nazi and Japanese experiments. Do you really think the US and other countries haven’t tried similar experiments?

    I find it amazing that any kind of testing can be explained. Well if it saves a life it is worth it. OK maybe I can understand that even though I do not agree with it. Animals do not even have the physiological make up as humans so how does it help? The atrocities that were committed on these people cannot be explained away, yes maybe we learned from these experiments but at what cost. To me these experiments only showed what evil lurks in the hearts of human beings. The sad fact is that these types of experiments are probably being done today. We most definitely did not learn anything from them as history seems to be repeating itself over and over again……..

    To be honest I know this sounds very cruel and messed up but I’m relieved that they’ve done this years ago and they don’t have to do experiments like this now. The knowledge that they taken from these prisoners helped us alot I mean now people knows how to survive in extreme conditions and hospitals knows what to do to warm up a patient suffering from hyperfermia. The experiments undertaken about diseases in humans we can now understand.

    “The Monster Study” is one of the worst things I have ever heard. Experimenting on young children from the orphanage, really? First off, that’s not even a smart experiment considering those children have already had enough psychological problems regarding everything that they have already been through in their short life. Second, to traumatize children by belittling them for something they cannot yet control is completely unethical. I’m surprised they even attempted on keeping this experiment under wraps. Even if there had been a debriefing or informed consent for this experiment it wouldn’t have mattered because these kids are orphans. They were most likely too young to understand what was going on and they all have been abandoned so they probably do not have much positive guidance. I’m curious to know if the orphanage knew what exactly was going on with their kids, and if they did why didn’t they do something about it?

    I have done extensive research on the matter of the Nazi experiments, and I am continuing to do so; but I see that you didn’t mention that most of the twins that were experimented on didn’t live past the first two or three weeks of ariving at Auschwitz.
    The two twins would averagely have their measurements of any skin taken and recorded, then they were sent to do extensive testing (i.e. having all body hair removed by hand, having tubes forced up their noses and into their lungs, receiving several two liter enemas, et cetera.) Then, after all the testing was done and over with, the “medics” that were in charge of the set of twins, they would have then lie down on a bench and simultaneously given an injection in the heart… taking both of their lives. And right after the twins were announced as dead, then their bodies would immediatly have begun to be diasected…
    It’s not a fairy-tale story, but I just see that you have failed to mention such a large part.

    Dr. Aubrey Levin was arrested Tuesday night and charged with sexual assault, just days after he was suspended by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA), involving allegations against a long-time male patient.

    The victim is a 36-year-old man and the alleged assaults took place over a long period of time.

    Dr. Trevor Theman, registrar of the CPSA, could not discuss specifics of the case but confirmed Levin – a psychiatrist based out of the Peter Lougheed Centre who is often called to testify in criminal trials as an expert witness – has been suspended.

    A call to Levin’s home Tuesday night was answered by a woman who said the allegations were false, but Levin himself was not available for comment.

    Levin came to Alberta in the late 1990s, after immigrating from South Africa, where he served as a military doctor.

    In addition to his work as a psychiatrist for Alberta Health Services, Levin has also served as a lecturer with the University of Calgary’s forensic psychiatry department.

    These are all horrible things that people have done, and another horrible thing they do to certain people is a type of bullying called mobbing and gangstalking and they do it to them every day of their entire lives which can be 90 or 100 years. Look it up and you will see how horrible this is to be harassed and abused every day of your life. We know people who are victims of this and are harassed and abused by police, firemen, clerks in City Hall and Social Services, doctors, nurses, lawyers, landlords, neighbors, just about everyone they come into contact with and accused of all sorts of things they did not do and have it put on their records and they can’t get it off their records even though they did not do any of the things they are accused of doing. This is also a horrible form of human torture.

    Human beings with the spirit of demons in them must have been involved in these vile, cruel sins that are abominations to God. I cannot fathom how any human being could subject another to such horror! These were fully possessed human bodies with demons from Hell in them. They will stand before God to be judged. Hell is most probably their final place where they will be tormented with brimstone and fire for all eternity.

    Number 10 isn't remotely evil and cannot be compared to the other 9 really – yes, it was a psychological test and caused some SHORT TERM psychological harm, but no one knew what was going to happen, and it was just to see the effect of Social Roles. Zimbardo himself, who was shocked at the results, followed all 24 (I think, it was 20 something) paticipants to see if there were any long term effects, which there weren't.

  • Sharon Presley

    Zimbardo's experiment, although ethically problematic, hardly belongs on this list. All the others involved serious harm to people without their informed consent (to put it mildly). Zimbardo's participants experienced a great deal of psychological distress but no lasting harm and they gave consent. Even Zimbardo did not know ahead of time how distressed they would be. The rest of this list had no excuse for what they did.

  • Has to be said: apparently, the Nazis were trying cure homosexuality. What the hell's the purpose of that? Was the guy in charge traumatized by a gay guy as a child? Being gay ain't a disease, it's just an interest in the same sex. That's all it is. And I bet if a Nazi saw some slutty blondes making out, he'd ask to join instead of trying to "cure" them. Good lord… to think this was legal at the time.

    As an actual historian, I would place Unit 731 in an untouchable first place, beyond anything any human has done in total sanity against another human being. This includes the Nazi experiments. The Nazis had a clear set of subjects, but the Japanese did their horrific experiments without a sense of race or creed, and with a methodical sense of pride and evil. Also the Japanese were the creators of modern chemical/biological warfare.

    “Experiments on twin children in concentration camps were created to show the similarities and differences in the genetics and eugenics of twins,”
    Eugenics is a pollitical movement which aims to remove “undesirable” people from the human genepool, usually by sterrilization, sometimes by murder. It’s not a physical property in humans.

    Plus, I have no idea how many soldiers were killed in the war or how cruel one side was supposed to treat their ememies, but civilians did nothing wrong. They were neither trained nor told to be brave enough to face weapons. How could the nazis find it interesting to kill or do something worse than killing to the innocent?

  • boreborebored

    Just probably to re-iterate, but there’s no way you can honestly compare the Stamford Prison Experiment and ‘The Nazi’s’ in the same list!

    It’s absurd to suggest the experiment was evil…

    The fact of the matter is, although this experiment was endured prior to the rigorous ethics we have nowadays- it cannot be in the same bracket as ‘The Nazi’s’.

    Zimbardo would never have allowed substantial physical harm to come to the participants. Similar to Milgram’s study, a decent proportion of the participants saw great use in their involvement and the experiment as a whole.

    The study addressed important aspects, such as the role of authority figures, influence and of course, whether or not being ‘evil’ is as easy as the Nazi’s made it seem. Not enough is said about the findings for this study, it appears overshadowed by the ethical ‘debate’.

    While i’m in no way advocating the behaviour of the individuals/ experimenters, the findings are so so important! I’d simply like to think that there are worse things to befall mankind than this. ‘Like to think’ not taken literally.

    But the rest….yer they’re pretty awful.

    Yet how can all these kinds of sick ‘experiments’, firstly be allowed to happen, and secondly remain ‘secret’ whilst happening and for many years after? Like corruption, “cover-up’s” and obstructions to judicial justice and the lack of will to investigate into any major crime etc. – can only stem from the top and permeate downwards, – not the other way around. – As how is it that no matter what political party is in power, – the greed and same corruption continues to fester following each and every administration or “power shift”? How is it possible to maintain this ground-hog day status quo – day after day, week in week out, month after month and each and every year, decade and century – without it being discovered, then prevented and stopped all together? Why isn’t there adequate laws and regulations been put long into place that prevents this kind of thing from continuously occurring? – Well, I’ll tell you why, – it’s because virtually almost any person of any “status” – is also a member of the Freemason’s and its associated bodies, that in turn have millions of foot soldier 3rd Degree Master Mason’s, whom many a member are also here on Facebook, – and the reason why many a dedicated debunker exists. The initiate Freemason takes a series of blood-oaths and promises not to reveal the secrets of Freemasonry that he [or she] will then learn: – “Upon having his throat cut from ear to ear” if he dare did reveal the secrets. Blood-oaths such as this, – are sworn upon entering the 1st [Entered Apprentice] and 2nd [Fellow Craft] Degrees respectively, the higher the degree, the more gruesome the oath can be. So it’s after swearing these such oaths and making the such pledges that these sorts of “fratheads” have to do, – that they then in turn are appointed and become part of the internal structure of our governments, – and it is via the management, leadership and control of our local villages, towns and cities, – whose job it is, – is to watch the backs of their fellow brothers, – which isn’t the likes of me and you, but the brothers of the “Masonic brotherhood”, or sisters of the sororities and madams of the “Eastern Star” whom have all been carefully chosen and strategically placed to assist one another, – though more importantly is to help their superiors up the rungs of “Jacobs Ladder”, whilst making sure the rest of us non-fraternalites keep stepping on the heads of all those snakes they’ve deliberately and precariously positioned all around us, – so whenever you might have thought you almost made it to where you wanted to be in life, – then oops, – there you go again and helter-skelter all the way down and back to square one in life again.

    The Japanese did far more cruel things then the Nazis. I think Japanese Unit 731 should be put as number one on the list. The experiments are so cruel and horrible, and worst of all. All the personell that escaped the Soviet military police got safety in America.

    These sicks shit. There currently are recovered films. Or parts of films from the site recovered by Soviet forces and documents stating the most horrible of the horrible and number 4 isn’t cruel at all. All the subjects where poisened. But that’s it nothing more and nothing cruel. And Soviet only choise the most horrible prisoners those who comitted murder or rape or worse where subjects.

  • Hopeful

    What I find interesting is that nothing was psychologically done to either the people conducting the experiments or, in no. 10, their ‘victims’. I don’t believe that no.10 is evil, and it is certaintly not top ten material. There was no malicious intention or act , and any harmful activity was the fault of the volunteers. It is odd how, when placed in a situation, these people either played into their believed stereotype or naturally gravitated towards it so much that the experiment had to be cut short. It was not evil experimentation. It was a study into evil humanity. As for the rest, these prove the foint that the first made – humanity is an evil race. Whether brought out by terrible circumstances or a cruel mind, there is something evil in everyone, and for some people it just can’t be stopped. That is why I believe the rest of humanity is so amazing. We are capable of all this harm and destruction, but apart from a select few (and believe me, in context and by comparison it is few), we have shunned such decisions and chosen a path that, while it may not be spotless, is golden compared to the possibilities.

    The thing that baffles me more than anything, more than ‘how they could do that’ (because the likelihood in most cases is that the experimenters were not right in the head) is the amount of people who go along with the atrocities…the nazis had an army of loyal supporters, and still do today to some extent. How many people are unable to empathise with others, and realise that the ‘reasons’ for their crimes are based on things that are out of a person’s control and could just as easily have been attributed to themselves? such as race, sex, orientation, nationality.

    The Japanese tests were historically more brutal and done out of curiosity to see what happens. The Nazi tests were commissioned to find real solutions to problems the Nazi’s faced. I think people should stop assuming Nazi’s are number one Evil just because they are Nazi’s. I think the Japanese in this case were much worse simply for the fact that many of the tests preformed by Unit 731 were done just because.

    The acts listed here are some of the sickest I have ever seen. I had recently found out about unit 731 and was utterly shocked. It’s horrifying to know that humans are able to commit suck acts of pure evil. As it shows most people would find the acts as ” Helpful to mankind” or can even try to justify the actions listed here. Fact is they were of pure evil and were done out of the desire of disturbed people. As a person who has had experience with torture and pain I find that it dulls in comparison to these acts listed. It makes me loss sleep at night to know acts like this were done and are still going on somewhere in the would. It makes me lose hope to know that people do nothing to prevent this from ever happening again. It infuriates me to know people are blind to these acts of horror and choose not to care. It shows how far the human mind can bend the basic concepts of right and wrong all for the benefits of knowledge. There are things in this world that we should know and should never know. The results of these acts would be some of them. My only hope is that my words don’t fall on closed ears. I would also hope that people wouldn’t turn a blind eye on acts of horror such as these. As a person you have the power of preventing such acts. By sharing this information you are letting people know of the horror and evil human are able to commit.

I don’t know if this is right or not but i heard some where that they were trying to pass the law of genetic engineering on humans, and if they do these things could happen everywhere, secretly…. and then a real human dog hybrid would pop up, and a bunch of other hybrids. Idk if any of the people here have read maximum ride but that kind of human engineering could happen, we cannot let that happen.

    Anyone who can torture another person is, themself not human nor animal, but demonic.

    the second one is the most cruel one of them all (in my opinion).

    ALL THAT HORRIBLE SHIT IS HARD TO IMAGINE.
    SO IMAGINE THIS: LAWS DIFFER FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY AND FROM DECADE TO DECADE. THE LAWS THAT PERSECUTE DRUG DEALERS AND USERS ARE OF A POLITICAL NATURE. MANDATORY MINIMUM SENTENCES OF 10 AND 20 YEARS FOR SELLING DRUGS TO AN ADULT WHO IS SEEKING THEM OUT IS CRUEL. SEPARATING THESE PEOPLE FROM THEIR LOVED ONES AND STEALING A LARGE CHUNK OF THEIR LIVES BY FORCING THEM TO LIVE IN SQUALID CONDITIONS IS MANS INHUMANITY TO MAN IN AMERICA IN THE 21ST CENTURY. I MEAN THE DEA WAS STARTED BY, OF ALL DUDE, RICHARD NIXON. PARANOID MUCH?
