I had to study Milgram's experiments back then and they're holding up pretty well considering he did them 50+ yrs ago. They should give everyone pause if anyone believes in a real fight that the Nat'l guard, police or Army wouldn't fire on other citizens. I believe they absolutely would. I also believe history bears this out everywhere. The exception is when groups split into two accepted leaderships. Then those groups will fight each other. War and Civil War are examples of this situation.
