Do you feel that it is OK for the government to Experiment on the General Population ?
There are questions arising that might astound many, but it seems that there are government branches that are experimenting on the public.
I guess it would depend on what type of experiment they were doing and whether we (or the general public rather) were aware. Not all experiments are bad, but granted they are not all good either.
Not according to our Constitution, the roll of government is limited to what is expressly written and the right to experiment is not listed. The governments right to experiment with the public would expand the power and scope of government far beyond the Constitution's intent. One of the main intents of the Constitution is that it creates a "rule of law" as opposed to the "rule of man", allowing the government to arbitrarily experiment with us, imposes on us the "rule of man" which is by definition -tyranny!
It's not the first time, unfortunately. This has been a practice for some time.
Watch the video at the bottom of the article below.
It's appropriate in a statist society. If the people are the subjects of the rulers, then the latter may do as they want.
It is wholly inappropriate in a democratic society. Government there is the servant of the people, not the other way around, and is authorized to do no such thing on its own initiative.
That the United States government has conducted experiments on the people brings into question the nature of the political system. Is it only superficially democratic, or is it genuinely so? Frankly, I think a great many Americans are having their doubts.
Have you pondered How has private and charitable enterprises experimented on the General Population. To answer this question the experiment has to be defined first. Is advertising on the biggest media conduit - the television, experimental. Is this question you proposed experimental? How is an experiment defined is important, however the purpose is more important?
Experiments are used to test theories.
independent variable (what you change)
dependent variable (what you're measuring)
control group (what you keep the same)
hypothesis (what you think is going to happen)
& your results
Are the affect of advertising measured by purchases and donations? Are those late night time slots chosen because they are less expensive or because of a target market and human behavior?
There is nothing wrong with experimenting since almost everything we do is an experiment of some sort. It is the purpose that should be questioned and if that information of/from the governmental experiments are made available. Check out FRED at http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2 for some results to some experiments by our Government. I use that as a resource of hubs all the time. Plus, businesses of many kinds do as well.
