How is it possible for ordinary people to support a regime like that of Nazism? Trying to answer this question from a student, Professor Ron Jones conducted an experiment in a school in California in 1969, aiming to prove that people can easily be converted into a mob that can be manipulated. Starting from a simple role-playing game, the experiment quickly took on huge dimensions, getting out of control, because as long as there are conditions that can support a totalitarian regime, there will always be people willing to believe and ready to be seduced by such a movement and ride the Wave.
