Stanford prison experiment vs the lord of the flies

When you put good people in an evil and uncivilized place their mind morphs into survival mode which can bring out the evil in them. Even if the situation isn't real the actions of others gives off a chain reaction to turn it into something dangerous to the mind. From the videos of the Stanford prison experiment it shows that it first starts off as just an experiment but then ones actions towards another sets off a whole chain reaction to the rest of the college students taking part in it and causes a very dangerous, anxiety filled, confusing situation. In the Lord of the Flies the boys on the island start off as little kids who don't have any experience in the wild, but by the end of the book their killing their piers and slaughtering pigs.
