The experiment was supposed to last two weeks but ended up only lasting six days because of the way that people abused their power and did not do the morally right thing. In the Stanford prison experiment, the guards were too afraid to go against the guard that was taking charge because he put himself as this role of a higher authority. He took charge and all the other guards followed him even if what he was doing to the prisoners was wrong. The rest of guards stood by it and let it happen because they were afraid of what would happen to them if they did not. The power got to their heads and they mistreated the boys even when they knew it was the wrong thing to do.

In that era all migrant workers preferably work alone, but with George and Lennie they stick together because Lennie is a more challenged person so he doesn 't know his wrong doings which causes lots of trouble for George. On page 94, one of the most significant passages is written on having a dialogue between George and Candy about how they were unable to get the farm because Lennie had ruined their chances of getting it.

‘Cause I want you to stay with me. Trouble with mice is you always kill ‘em.” The relationship between father and son is also implied because George looks after Lennie’s basic survival needs and tries to keep him out of trouble.

Another example is when Carlson wanted to shoot Candy’s dog.
