Authority does not have to be an actual figure, but rather can be a set of rules or an institution. It plays a pivotal role in the decisions and influence of the general public. Zimbardo makes it clear how dangerous authority can be, because many people choose to blindly follow instructions regardless of whether or not their morals line up. It is described in depth as an almost brainwashing like phenomenon, where those under authority feel somewhat of an obligation to obey, simply because of their position. While this alone is interesting, an even more intriguing topic discussed in the book is the fact that not only do those under authority feel obligated to comply with their leader’s ideas and suggestions, but if the authority figures change from good to evil, their follows will most likely change as well.
However, more recent events and research support that nurture is the main cause of aggression in humans. People are born to become something specific, but that end can be drastically altered by environmental factors.

Fear is an emotional concept that subconsciously runs our lives. FDR once said “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Having fear and being fearful are two fundamentally different ideas. The idea of fear is not a force that is supposed to keep us from doing what we hope for but as a motivator for success. Fear is the mechanism that instills a sense of respect in one’s mind which in turn acts as an advocate for achieving success. With a healthy trepidation, one strives for accomplishments in life because of the fear of not becoming the person one hopes to be.
Fear is an instinctive emotion of all animals, yet it differs in its appearance and consequences in animals and humans (Overstreet, 16). Most animals only sense fear when in real danger and mostly react with the appropriate instinct of fight and flight. To see that one can simply look at a deer. The moment it senses something dangerous, something out of the ordinary, it flees to a safer place without giving it a second thought. In animals, fear is just a tool of survival (Overstreet, 17).
The society we live in has shaped us in ways we may not have every noticed. Each culture different from the next, we often get angry or frustrated when a person commits a violation we feel is just common sense.
