The Prisoner’s Dilemma

The prisoners dilemma is a hypothetical game set up showing a situation where people won’t want to work together even when it’s beneficial to do so. It’s just a long way of saying people don’t like to be taken advantage of. Is often game theory 101.



Concerning “Cooperation”
Cooperation refers to cooperation between the two players. Not necessarily with outside parties like the police.

    Well uh, isn't this coercion?

  3. that's a mathematical representation of what christianity is about in my eyes. Being good person, caring about others and the group even at the cost of your own good. It's sad that these days so many people leave values, and morals to pursue money, safety and own goals without thinking about others

    But snitches get stitches, so it's no jail time + chance of revenge

  6. I had a similar situation. Except, more people.
    Ok, it was actually hilarious, so me and 3 friends were at the cafe in my school.
    And apparently in the room next door, someone broke into the vending machineS.
    And the staff thought one of us did it. So one of my friends, ( no longer my friend ) said my buddy Lucas did it.
    So the rest of us said it was the accuser.
    He was suspended. For 2 weeks. 🙃

  7. Well Zero Escape brought me here, and now I have a deeper understanding.

    I know you just skimmed over this but a reason for defecting might also be to protect yourself from the other guy. If you know he will defect you have to defect as well to save yourself.
