Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am having difficulty in finding a reference. the torture was described to me in a conversation, not read in a book or article.

Can't find any reference to it in Torture and democracy either.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

well, forget the torture. The modern day experiment from which the 40% figure is derived is:

Two Eyes for an Eye: The Neuroscience of Force Escalation. Sukhwinder S. Shergill, Paul M. Bays Chris D. Frith, Daniel M. Wolpert.
Science 11 July 2003:
Vol. 301. no. 5630, p. 187

For a description of what is all about, without having to register, please read Daniel Gilbert.
