Obedience - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Following up on my previous link on "discipline", I came across this. I am a bit ambiguous in attitude toward ideas of control and discipline, as i feel that some self-discipline is necessary in order to function in a social environment, and that when that self-discipline is not forthcoming, that external control is needed. On the other hand, obedience to external control can lead to blind subservience, and lack of careful thought. I hope the links to the experiments described on this page throw more light on the subject.
