Why was America is referred to as a social experiment?

Well, just thinking out loud here, but it may have been referred to as a "social experiment", because they had never had the different people and the races mixing together to form something huge (the 13 colonies). It was an experiment, so that's why we were referred to as the "social experiment". i just think that is the answer i may be wrong. if i am please correct this. thank you. Your answer is a good one, but might need to go a step or two further. First it is hard to separate a 'social experiment' and a 'political experiment' They have much overlap. A monarch would lead a European country politically, and also lead is in many social ways. What was being 'cobbled' together in America had never been tried or attempted. Keep in mind that this 'experiment' was so new they had to write a book ( not easy at that time) with all of the rules and regulations of what the new government should and could do. Also remember that if a 'mistake' was made it would not be noticed until they tried to put it into action. The Constitution was a great framework, but they had to get into the trenches and say how it would be applied and how it would work. You are correct about the different types of people coming together. These people not only had different political backgrounds, but also different cultural backgrounds. Many did not even speak the same language--sound familiar ?

Which recent event was reminiscent of Philip Zimbardo's mock prison experiment conducted iin 1971?

I am not sure how recent you are seeking, but what comes to mind is the 2004 detainee abuse incident at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, when American soldiers, many of whom were low-ranking and not very experienced, got so caught up in feeling powerful that they began tormenting, humiliating and mistreating the Iraqi detainees, even going so far as to take photographs of themselves next to some of the inmates they were abusing. In Dr. Zimbardo's experiment, he did not expect the "guards," who were college students involved in an experiment, to become brutal towards the "prisoners," fellow classmates in the experiment. And yet, they did engage in humiliation and mistreatment, getting so caught up in feeling powerful that the experiment had to be cancelled. Sadly, the Abu Ghraib situation was not a game, and detainees were in fact severely mistreated. The majority of the soldiers who did it to them were probably not evil people in real life, and yet, with uniforms and authority and no supervision, they turned into brutal taskmasters, capable of hurting others just because they could.

Who were the doctors in the Holocaust?

Most know of Josef Mengele, "The Angel of Death" at Auschwitz who was famous for his twin studies and who escaped punishment in South America and died of natural causes in 1979. There were many other Doctors involved. A trial at Nuremberg brought 23 up on charges and found 15 of them guilty. Seven were sentenced to be hanged an they were. Among them was the Reich Commissoner of Sanitation and Health and a former personal physician to Adolf Hitler, Major General Karl Brandt. Of those found guilty and sentenced to prison time was Dr. Herta Oberheuser who had murdered children, wounded people with combat wounds to experiment on battlefield medecine and a host of other vile medical experiments. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison but was released in 1952. She had a respected medical practice until her liscense was yanked in 1958. So much for the Hippocratic Oath in Nazi Germany.
