What happens to good people put in evil places?
When civilized people are put in evil places there are many things that could happen. They could be strong and stay civilized or they could end up cracking under the pressure and giving into the evil. What happens during these circumstances depends on the kind of person and who they are with. One example of people giving in to the evil is the Stamford Prison experiment. The experiment was supposed to show what would happen when good people are put in bad places, but nobody ever thought it could end so badly. The Guards acted inhumanly toward the prisoners by abusing them. The prisoners started to act back and attack the guards. Then, the guards would hurt the prisoners and put then in solitary confinement. The prisoners started to feel like they were actually in a real prison and when asked what there name was they would say there number instead of there name. The way the guards were acting is very similar to how Jack and his tribe were acting in "Lord of the Flies."
