Under the comfort of a soft blanket, my husband and I nestled on the couch, ignoring sunshine and chores to binge watch Netflix for the better part of a lazy afternoon.

At one point, we stumbled on an interesting movie. Experimenter startled us. Of course we knew about Stanley Milgram’s research into human behavior, but somehow the film drove it home in a way that psyche class decades ago failed to do.

The film was a great reminder of how easily we succumb to authority and how so much of our behavior is influenced by a need to belong.

It made us more conscious about the importance of listening to our hearts and acting on what we hear. Somehow, when we do that we regret less and have less to fear.

The movie and subsequent dialog are worth the time. Who knows? Maybe they’ll help the world.
