In this video we examine the question: ‘What makes so many people prone to support and participate in the actions of tyrannical governments when so doing leads to such widespread misery, suffering and death?’ We put forth one answer that was proposed by Carl Jung and his student, Erich Neumann, which proposes that a psychological process referred to as scapegoating can explain how so many people can support, or actively participate in, the atrocities committed by governments.
