This is a major symbol as over and over the children say how the beast is a threat to them that they need to kill. When, in all reality, each of them is capable of having the beast is inside of them the whole time as Piggy explains in the following quote. “I know there isn 't no beast—not with claws and all that I mean—but I know there isn 't no fear either. Unless we get frightened of people." (Golding 64) Finally, this fear drives them to kill Simon and Piggy, and it drives them to attempt to kill Ralph.
Have you ever wondered why people kill each other, the same species of animals killing each other just for the fun of it, why would and twisted mine do a bad thing like that? Imagined if you wanted to kill someone just for fun and you have that want to kill someone for fun. These are why serial killers kill and who or what motivates them. But not all killers are the same because I found out there are different types of serial killers like Power & Control killers want to find dominates and power over their victim like example,they want to feel like they make the rules on who lives and dies. Visionary killers kill because they have really bad visions of their past and their childhood and they might kill certain people because of what happened
“We all have good and evil inside us.It's what side we choose to follow that defines who we are”-J.K. Rowling William Golding wrote Lord of the Flies during a time of conflict and war. In response to all the conflict Golding wrote Lord of the Flies, a book about kids that crash landed on an island and how the isolation affects them. Golding wrote Lord of the Flies to tell that humans are corrupted to evil or forced to be good based by their surroundings. Jack a character in the book is an example of this. In the beginning of the book Jack is a cocky kid who says “ I ought to be chief,because I’m chapter chorister and head boy” ( Golding,22).
George R.R. Martin once said, “There is a savage beast in every man, and when you hand that man a sword or spear and send him forth to war, the beast stirs.” In the Lord of the Flies by William Golding the children have a savage beast hidden within them. Human savagery is influenced by power, status, and even possession of tools. Ralph and Jack, leaders of the group, allow for the beast to awaken in them as they struggle to survive on the island. Jack is the first character who is corrupted by his human savagery.
With the fear of the beastie on the island the boys became scared and violent towards anything that could cause harm. Simon was murdered because the rest of the boys were influenced by Jack and beside themselves with fear, Simon came down to warn them that the monster was real and lived within them. He became the center of an animistic ritual that ended in his unfortunate death. Once one murder had been committed, it seemed easier for the boys to accept the fact that they were no longer civilized children. Jack decided to permanently become his own tribe and move into Castle Rock, he took most of the remaining boys along with him.
War is undeniably hell. Monstrosities and wanton cruelty are fostered from this senseless drive for violence. The very best humanity has to offer may enter proudly just to end up shipped back home in a body bag or worse. They could return as an entirely different person. The experience of witnessing and committing such atrocities is enough to turn the sanest individual into the next Joker.
In a general way we mean how our species’ excessive predatoriness has made the entire planet our prey” (Martel 38). He implies that human atrocities are excuses for survival, which, in his views, justifies the evil deeds that he commits against the wild animals on the boat. Additionally, the fear of dying plays a huge role in Pi’s decision to become violent, “I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life.” (Martel 214).
Montresor says, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge” (Poe 1). Montresor says this in the first sentence of the story which implies that he is having a struggle with another person who is Fortunato. Montresor has to struggle with a bully on his own and he wants revenge. Every victim of a bully wants revenge for what has been done to them. Nevertheless, Montresor gets ultimate revenge since he murdered Fortunato making the reader’s feel shocked.
In “The Lord of the Flies” by William Golding the buildup of savage behavior is present because the boys are not capable of creating an effective leadership, punishment for one another, and enforced rules. Throughout the novel Roger goes unpunished for his sadistic behavior, Ralph is constantly overtaken by Jack, and the conch is repeatedly ignored. Civilization and its rule are a desperate need for humans, when we don’t have them to support us, we end up as the one thing we all fear:
Once in power, many individuals find themselves consumed by an overwhelming thirst to control others. When someone possesses control and authority over others, they become infected with evil and wicked behaviours which begin to dominate and destroy their minds. Like Hitler, Mussolini, and Saddam Hussein who all desired absolute power, Macbeth too was an example of this self destructing demeanour. Their “vaulting ambition” led to many unfortunate incidents which resulted in the death of innocent lives. People who believe that absolute power doesn’t corrupt absolutely are very mislead.
