Or animals? Or savages?”(68). The boys lost respect for him when he didn’t decide to have “fun” on the island with them so they ran to the “fun” leader Jack. Even though Jack changed more than Ralph, the boys didn’t lose any respect for him because he didn’t change back and he scared some of the boys into joining him like the twin; Sam and Eric were forced to join Jacks’ group or they would have been hunted just like Ralph was at the end of the

His rebellion against society is not one of hate, rather a rebellion of anger towards those who do not accept him. His teachers and father do not allow Paul to be comfortable in his own skin, forcing Paul to obtain only small windows of happiness.
Jack is fundamentally a good person, but the island changes him to be a child dictator of the other boys because of lack of necessities needed to withhold a typical and common society. The author William Golding, is getting across that in most typical societies, the leader who gets everyone’s attention, and who has the most wanted essentials; in Jack’s case weapons, meat, and protection from “the beast”, will be the most wanted as a leader. The author is also implying that people are not fundamentally good or evil, but something has to drive them to end up changing themselves; like Jack changing because of realizing that having power over the other boys is exciting. Jack is not evil when he arrives on the island, but having cruel power and control over the other boys for his own selfish gain, shows how evilness takes over
If given the choice, would it be prefered to have order and control or to have chaos and savagery. Most would depend on the controlled and disciplined environment, while others revolt to the chaotic and carefree roles. The survival for the boys in The Lord of the Flies relied on these two alternatives, but it was the attempt at creating a government that made them choose. And most lost something that would not be possible to gain back, the loss of innocence. Most youth are given role models to follow and learn from, the boys on the island had no role models.
Ralph was targeted and therefore had no chance to join Jack’s tribe, regardless if he wished to or not. Samneric, however joined because they had no choice. In which they did not meld into Jack’s style of leadership and control. This caused the boys to rebel in simple ways which supported Ralph more than Jack. ““You gotta go now, Ralph.” “For your own good.” “Keep away.
While Jack takes the rule as a dictator and Ralph wants a democracy, Jack’s ruling worked out better for him in the long run. Ralph did not have any power as the book progressed because the boys were not scared of him. He did not take initiative and reprimand them so they did not have any motivation to do what they were told. Jack did not take this approach. He was very hard on the boys which they may not have liked, but it worked in the long run.
81) which goes with why Jacob isn’t a good criminal because he wasn’t hanging out with gang members he was trying to be friends with a higher status of friends, but since he didn’t have the money he had to do a deviant deed to try and fit in which cost him his life by going down a path that he shouldn’t have. Now he can’t be a good criminal nor become successful because he was trying to fit in with the wrong qualities. However, there is only one theory of the two that really can explain Jacob’s situation better than the other and in my opinion, is Classification of the Theory because it talks about the strain and structural theory which must deal with the why this happened because he didn’t have money to fit in a higher status, plus the theory talks about interaction which explains why he did what he did because he was pressured to fit
As we can see from Lord of the Flies by William Golding, we can infer that it is hard to maintain individuality whilst among a group of people.The only way one can keep their individuality while in a group is if they have self-esteem. Having self-esteem and voicing an opinion is one way to keep individuality. The boys forgot about their character and personality because fear and savagery took over. Their will to hunt blinded them from what was actually happen which was them losing their individuality. One can't stay themselves without self-esteem.
It’s sad that people who are misfits get treated differently than “normal people.” This incident definitely affected Brent in a negative manor. Since people treat him differently, Brent tries to fit in as much as possible. He refuses to go anywhere or let anyone see him without a hat on. I feel like if people never made fun of him in the first place, then he would be confident in going places without a
Extreme circumstances provoke precarious acts. As man attempts to survive, he forgets his moral code and reverts to instinctual behaviors. The boys in William Golding’s Lord of the Flies prove this: As the story progresses, their inner evil is evident through their savage actions and their moral behaviors are lost. In the beginning, the group of boys struggle to maintain a democratic environment. The longer they live on the island, their society turns chaotic: No one obeys the regulations set into place and most of them do not take their predicament as serious as they should.
The people that don 't coordinate their depiction of people are not welcome in the waknuk group. David requested an additional hand and his father got mad on the grounds that it doesn 't look great in the waknuk individuals ' eyes. Because a child like David request help, it doesn 't imply that he is weaker or is subject to an individual it just means he require help in a specific range in his life. the result for an additional hand was over the top on the grounds that he addressed, as well as beaten by his dad.

These men didn’t come from where I came from, the men I saw in my community didn’t have the drive and determination that these men had. I realized at a young age that I had to be different from my peers and the older males, and that I refused to be a statistic and apart of the cultural norm of drugs and gangs. My older brothers are supposed to be role models to me, showing me difference between right and wrong, but all I get from them is the wrong. They’ve always been stuck inside of the box with

At first, all was well and Ralph stepped in as leader of the survivors. He tried to lead the boys using his knowledge of the adult world and basic necessities, but all did not last for long before Jack started to change, not only himself but the boys as well. He became the leader of the savages who had lost their innocence, having to hunt for themselves and provide for themselves. They saw the brutality that was necessary to survive in the world. When they arrived at the island all the boys were innocent, not knowing what to expect on the island, not sure what to do.
