The truth always comes out no matter what, but Stein might have a new perspective over his family's death at a different point in time. If Stein were to find out when he asked Wiesel, then he would have lost all hope. A considerable part of him was only living to see his family again. A while later, after Wiesel has told them that his family is well, Stein cheerfully declares, "The only thing that keeps me alive is to know that Reizel and the little ones are still alive. Were it not for them, I would give up" (Wiesel 45).
He does not think it is right to help take away slaves from people that he doesn't even know. To turn Jim in for these reasons would be the influence of society on Huck. Huck's decision on this marks another major step in Huck's moral maturation, because he decides not to turn in Jim on his own and adds another moral that he made and no one told him. This is the first time he makes a decision all on his own. Both this incident and the Wilkes Scheme represent Huck's ultimate realization and rejection of society.
This shows up in Freak the Mighty in many ways, Freak used his life to make Max’s better, and Max was willing to do anything for Freak. An example of this theme really showed up on page 157 when it states, “‘Kevin knew from a very young age that he wasn’t going to live a very long life’…’So he was lying about getting a robot body?’” This shows the theme that a true friend puts you before himself because Freak chose to not tell Max about his soon death even though telling him would make him feel better. This means that Freak even though it would bring him comfort he chose to not tell Max about his inevitable young death. Additionally, more evidence of this shows up on page 77 when everyone was making fun of Max and he was just sitting there like a stick in the mud, but Freak stood up for Max even though it would be easier to stand by and save himself.

In addition, Atticus went against his moral code and principles he had always upheld before, especially in the Tom Robinson trial. Now, Atticus is faced with the decision of abiding by the law or breaking it in order to do the right thing.
