In WWII over 65% of people did what they were supposed to because they were afraid of the consequences.Most people knew it was wrong but still did because they didn't want to be looked different upon.Many people across the world are afraid of getting bullied,being alone,and looking dumb.These are all reasons people just do what they think will get them out of that spotlight. Moriarty of the people don't think they would do that but if they were in that spotlight they would do different.
No matter what the consequences are people may rather just go ahead and do what there told than have any problems with someone.
The other half of peoples thoughts are that they are going to stand up and do what is right. That makes the most seance,to do the right thing in the first place then regret it in the future.
The 65% of the people were afraid of the consequences if they did not do what they were told so they keep't going until the person on the other side was died. If you get yourself in this situation you most likely will do the opposite of what you thought you were going to do,so did the people going into the experiment and they were wrong.
Just really think about your options if your in this problem and see what you would do.Everybody is different and make different decisions even if they don't realize it.
