Wow! This is a great thread! (how did I miss this one until now????)

Excellent OP, and so many great contributions!

I definitely see some parallels from the experiments posted by the OP and modern society today.

those experiments are nice and all but the reality of human population centers is vastly in opposition to the results they showed in said experiments. humans are nothing like mice and have a totally different social structure that relies on obeying the strong for survival of the "pack" if you will. in fact humans actually behave better the more populated things become, humans thrive when there's more of us because the pack generally conforms to whatever the powerful say or do.

the modern strong is the police, politicians, stars, judges and the news media or anyone with influence of some kind, in the end humans fall in line no matter what.

humans behave more like ants than mice, where while it might look chaotic on the surface there's an underlying order and structure that keeps everything running smoothly, especially in situations where survival is a priority for everyone.

like during that multiple day power outage in new york and surrounding states in 2003, people didn't go crazy and act like savages, things were pretty normal for the most part.

mice aren't humans, they can't think and reason like humans can and that alone changes our behavior in ways such experiments can't show.
