When Philip Zimbardo conducted the Stanford Prison Experiment in 1971, by absolutely no means did he expect the outcome to rise to such a inhumane magnitude. When the prison guards began to hit and abuse the prisoners, things got out of control. Just the fact that the experiment had to be stopped after only 6 of the 14 days shows how horrible awry the situation became. This is relatable to when Jack tortured Wilfred for no reason at all. When people get into a situation where it is acceptable to preform greivous acts against humanity, it is very likely to occur.
