What? The Stanford Prison Experiment isn't even about nature/nurture: it's about the power of roles. It shows how people will behave in accordance with their assigned roles, how the participants came to internalize these roles; the variables aren't even very relevant to the nature/nurture debate. The power of suggestion, obedience to authority: sure. But the study doesn't suggest in any way that it's simply a "bad apples" thing, so I don't know how anyone could possibly make that argument convincingly. :/
