"As the covid-19 crisis had been framed as a “war against an invisible enemy” and the nurses and physicians are named ‘soldiers’ or ‘warriors’ in ‘the front line’ many biases and errors that humans tend to have, have become visible. Especially the extent to which people obey authorities, even if the orders given are against their better (moral) judgment has been under investigation in the last decades. Three famous experiments were conducted, which have become known as the Asch conformity experiment, the Milgram obedience experiment, and the Stanford Prison experiment."
