Book Meme

I have been tagged by Sara.

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
The nearset book was ” The Lucifer Effect. Understanding how good people turn evil by Philip Zimbardo”

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences. ( I clearly didn’t follow this rule, I say Post as much as you want, it’s a free world, innit?)

Hellman: ” What would you be? Would you be a bastard?”
Sarge: “Yes Mr. correctional officer”
Hellman:”Well let me hear you say it”
Sarge: “I’m sorry sir, I will not say it.”
Hellman:”Why the hell won’t you say it?”
Sarge:”Because I do not use any profane language.”
Hellman:”Well. Why did you apply it to yourself? What are you?”
Sarge: ” I am whatever you want me to be, Mr. correctional officer.”
Hellman:”Well, if you say it, if you say that you are a bastard – you wanna know something – then you just proved my point. that you are a bastard. You say so. Then why don’t you say it?”
Sarge: “I’m sorry sir, I will not say it.”

Hellman senses that he has lost another challenge, and her reverts to the divide-and-conquer tactic that has proven so effective before:”Now, boys, you wanna get a good night sleep tonight, don’t you?”
They all say:”Yes sir!”
Hellman:”Well, I think we gonna wait a little bit, to let 2093 think about just what a bastard he is. And then maybe he’ll tell the rest of us that he thinks so.”
(This is an unexpected power struggle between the most controlling , power hungry guard and the prisoner who until now has been a totally obedient prisoner so much so that he is ridiculed as “Sarge” whom most prisoners and guards dislike as they all have considered him to be nothing more than a military robot. He is proving that he has another admirable facet to his character; he is a man of principle).

Well I posted a lot more cos I didn’t wanna leave you hangin, lol.
