Mark Dice: American Sheep Give Personal Information to ‘Authority Figure’

| |

Most of us are probably aware of the Milgram Experiments, which were conducted in the early 1960’s to test the compliance of ordinary Americans. They revealed just how docile the average person really was, and how Americans would be willing to do horrible things if an authority figure (with no real authority) ordered them to. That mindless submission is still alive and well today, and perhaps stronger than ever.

In the Milgram Experiment, the person giving the orders was often dressed like a doctor or a scientist, so at least there was an implicit sense that this person had some authority, and could be trusted. But it turns out that you don’t need to pretend to be anyone to get Americans to do your bidding. All you have to do is speak with an authoritative voice, and like a dog, they’ll roll over.

Mark Dice recently demonstrated this fact when he took to the streets of San Diego, dressed in his street clothes and armed with nothing but a clipboard and pen. He managed to convince complete strangers to give up all of their private information, including their name, address, and date of birth. Most did not hesitate until he asked for their social security number. They did this, even though he wouldn’t tell them who he was or what this was for. Behold, the sheepish compliance of the average American on full display:

  • That would be hilarious if someone hacked him the night before and gave him all of HIS info… then took off like a bat out of hell, lol!

      The bad part is that while Dice interviews “randomly” he tends to frequent areas surrounded by colleges. I would challenge him to try this in Downtown Los Angeles or even San Diego (where Mark is from). College kids are stupid.

      • Thinkers have never had a much of a need to attend formal educational venues, being largely autodidacts.

        The majority of all people “are really stupid, non-thinkers”…

    • I suspect that Mark Dice would never need to be a member of Lifelock.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    This is the kind of stuff that illustrates why we’re in the mess we’re in.

  • Smarty

    I wasn’t anywhere near him, so I just found out his e/mail address and gave him all my information that way. I feel much better now.

  • Nissa Hulder

    I was in a shop recently with my daughter. The checkout assistant asked my daughter for her name and phone number and my daughter gave the information without thinking. It wasn’t until I thought about it afterwards that I kicked myself. My daughter is an adult but I have raised my kids to question everything. Clearly it is so much a reflex action to simply give name rank and serial number without question now that you really have to ask why this is. At what point were we brainwashed into NOT asking why?

    I even went to the point of going back to the shop on purpose to buy something the next day in order to make myself front the shop assistant up and say NO! as an exercise in going against the conditioning. This was not easy, but sometimes you just need to give other people the example of not complying with a non-authoritative person. Sure, they ‘run’ the shop or maybe more strictly the till, but its YOUR information and since when do you need to give out personal information to buy anything at a store.

      There is more to it than that. Every society operates on a certain level of trust. Imagine a neighborhood with 0% trust vs 100% trust. 0% the houses have motes filled with sharks with laser beans on there heads and 100% doors have no locks and there’s no fences.
      The idea of information being a trainable commodity is reality new to the average person. Every person understood that the SS# was not a piece of information to be shared with a stranger, but they completely failed at the other information because they don’t understand the
      significance. Every parent knows “stranger danger” but no knows “data danger”.
      You give out your information to the store in exchange
      for discounts warranty’s (they never honer)..ect. The store bundles
      your information and give sells it to information brokers who
      buy/sell/trade. The next thing you know your getting letters from a
      collections company for a un-payed Sprint bill. I have never never done business with Sprint. A lot of people pay that “bill”.

      • Nissa Hulder

        The thing that peeved me was that the store employee did not tell us why she wanted this information. Usually you get the whole ‘for our records’ spiel when they ask for name and phone number. We got nothing, just a very terse “Name?”, then “Phone Number?”. The immediate response was to simply give out that information without even missing a beat. I have woken up to the fact that our personal boundaries have been eroded over time, but it clearly takes a whole lot more brain training to stop and ask what the information is going to be used for.
        I don’t think this is an issue of trust at all. It is an issue of changing rules in society and those rules suddenly expecting a level of discolsure which goes way beyond the pale. As a middle aged woman, I still remember when you were called ‘sir and ‘madam’ in a shop and personal information was considered private. Now, no holds are barred, and it is deeply disturbing. My kids of course don’t even question it, which is why I talked to my daughter afterwards and had to explain that before you hand over personal information you recognise the fact that you have the right to say no.

    • I tell people no to questions like that all of the time, glad you gave yourself some practice. If you are going to use those store discount cards just use fake information to sign up. Almost my entire online existence is a lie(cloaked/obfuscated).

    • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

      I hope you were polite. Chances are that was a low-level employee just following orders .If that was the case, then your refusal to give out your own name and phone number had little impact . You need to complain to a higher up. Saying NO! to an unassuming clerk who has no choice in the matter is pointless.

      • Nissa Hulder

        Actually I didn’t say ‘no’ at all, I just told the girl behind the counter that I wasn’t interested in joining their database. She didn’t care, and I didn’t really expect her to, it was for my own benefit not the store’s.

        • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

          Thank you for that clarification.

    • cmb

      I just give them bullshit

    • Guillotine_ready

      I never give them anything but the money and if they press for anything else I do not make the purchase.

  • Mr Reynard

    I would ask him for help in pursuing my religion?? I am a WICCA follower & I have difficulty today to find a 18 y.old or over, virgin for the Solstice ceremony??
    Where can I find a virgin today???
    That the information I would have given….

  • Shut the full cup

    I don’t live in moon beam land, and if I did not recognize Dice I would be inclined towards physical assault of both him and his camera man. He must be a Karate expert, or have a piece, or confident in the sheepleness of his fellow moonbeamians.

  • Jonny rRingworm

    Try this in downtown Detroit…I don’t think it’ll work…

  • Anothereno

    LMAO!

  • Helluva3ngineer

    If he’d worn a hat that said “SECURITY” on it, I bet everyone would have complied without question.

    • Guillotine_ready

      Wearing a hat with ICE on it and a black t shirt has interesting effects on groups of illegals. Tried it and was shocked at how well it scattered them.

      • Helluva3ngineer

        LOL. I went into a convenience store once with a buddy in ICE who was wearing his jacket. We were both carrying sidearms. The place was full of Mexicans and it cleared out. I don’t think the store clerk was too amused.
