In “the chrysalids” the characters deal with their fears by killing the ones they are afraid of, in this case the mutants, and trying to please the other one, in this case their God. On the other hand in “The Lord of the flies” Jack and his hunting group distracted themselves by hunting, and killing, and in the end making themselves feel like they were the strongest.

In the aftermath of Simon’s death, Jack displays that he uses terror to manipulate others when he said, “-and then, the beast might try to come in. You remember how he crawled-”(pg160) to one of his hunters that asked why they should defend the gate.
