why does every debunking of the Stanford Prison Experiment fail to mention that Phil Zimbardo literally told the guards, on videotape, to mistreat the prisoners

In the footage of the study, Zimbardo can be seen talking to the guards: “You can create in the prisoners feelings of boredom, a sense of fear to some degree, you can create a notion of arbitrariness that their life is totally controlled by us, by the system, you, me, and they’ll have no privacy … We’re going to take away their individuality in various ways. In general what all this leads to is a sense of powerlessness. That is, in this situation we’ll have all the power and they’ll have none.”

he literally paid people to act a certain way and then reported it as a scientific finding
