Prisons vs Lord of the Flies

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT GOOD PEOPLE IN AN
EVIL OR UNCIVILIZED PLACE?

When good people are put in a position where they have power will they could abuse the power given. Good people can abuse the power they have. In the movie the prison guards were told not to physically hurt the inmates, as you see in the trailer they show the prison guards hurting the inmates. You also will see the inmates hurt the guards This also shows up in Lord of the Flies towards the end of the book. Roger and Jack torture Sam and Eric. Right there you see Roger and Jack are abusing power to join their tribe. Another example that you see in Lord of the Flies is when Jack beats up Wilford. You see Jack abusing his power acting like you can beat people up if your the leader, which isn't true. In the Stanford Prison Experiment you see good people the guards becoming evil or having ill intent behaviors. In different situations people will abuse the power they have.
