He wanted to hunt and kill animals instead of doing what really needed to be done with the fire. Ralph says to Jack on hunting "So long as you and your hunters remember you fire".(Golding, 53) Jack then says " You and your Fire!" (Golding, 53) This is the point where Jack and Ralph start to have major disagreements and there is a break in communication and a feeling of competition for Jack to lead so he can change the rules.
However, another boy who was supposed to be their leader, Ralph, rejected his idea and because of that, Jack was so angry and decided to break their law that was agreed by everyone together before. As the anger emotion had controlled Jack, he started to feel rage towards Ralph. This is because Ralph was the leader, so, most of the boys were on Ralph side. He then created his own troops and started hunting for animals. As an experienced boy scout, he managed to kill a boar and his troop celebrated together.
What kept him from giving up during the three days of him being hunted was his new value of life. This value made him want to never become what Zaroff was. Zaroff was a murderer because he enjoyed the challenge of hunting humans over animals, which were no longer a challenge to him. Once Rainsford realized what Zaroff was doing he became afraid of him and refused to hunt with him when he had offered. Then, Rainsford was being hunted like the big game he used to hunt.
This shows the lack of obedience the men have and Odysseus lack of leadership. Leadership requires a person to lead a group of people and have people obey you, how can that occur if Odysseus men do not obey simple instructions. Furthermore, how can we consider Odysseus a hero if his commands are not followed by his men. Heroes orders are followed and pursued, but Odysseus wasn't. Nevertheless, heroes rules and commands are respected by their followers and it shows excellent leadership, yet this does not the speak to Odysseus.
Ralph is anxious for everyone on the island to get rescued. ““I’m chief,” said Ralph,” because you chose me. And we were going to keep the fire going. Now you run after food…”” this makes known that Ralph is attempting to get the others to visualize that he is still chief and he had said to keep the fire going so they could be saved.
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.
Ralph had everyone doing tasks, to keep the production going. Jack kept refusing to do anything Ralph would say, he’d always disagree, even when he knew he was wrong. Jack only wanted to hunt and kill things, even if it was his own peers, that’s what he loved to do, and he wouldn’t stop. Jack and the savages became very untrustworthy, and unpredictable, they were dangerous. Ralph tried getting the hunters to come back into his clan, so Jack would be on his own, but they always did what Jack said, even if they knew it was wrong.
In the book the Lord of the Flies the masks that Jack’s group uses helps them overcome their fear of killing the pig by hiding their true feelings. When Jack volunteers himself as the leader of hunting he doesn’t realize that he would have to overcome new challenges. Masculinity “masks” and the clay masks they wear in the Lord of the Flies are basically just “things trying to look like something else” (Golding 63). Jack explains to his group of hunters that the masks they were going to wear are so they can look like something they are not or to hide what is keeping them from killing a pig. This shows that they are trying to push away their true selves and by looking like something else they can make a character of who they choose to be based on the reason they put the “mask” on.
Throughout the novel Nick and Gatsby go through many struggles together. Both have their own opinion of each other. Nick has evidence to be a very unbiased narrator for many different reasons.

Our society has, and is having, many issues when it comes to choosing between solving problems and avoiding problems, and Ray Bradbury, the author of Fahrenheit 451, has seen this and he represents it with fire. He wanted to display some messages through fire, so he has society use fire to remove problems, but this blocks society’s ability to be humane and it allows them to have an unnatural urge to remove and destroy. Also, Bradbury tries to tell the readers that fire is part of nature and it can help the humanity and creativity within people. When fire is used in unnatural ways, it changes the thought process of characters, and this shows the general message of how moving fast and not learning destroys people’s humanity. Fire has been a constant symbol used by
Being authoritative and clever when situated in a life and death scenario is the characteristics an effective leader must possess. However, if we were to compare the differences in Jack’s and Ralph’s rule, it’ll be two completely distinct approaches. First of all, Ralph governs the group with a set of laws, such as the rule to maintain a constant fire signal. However, when people oppose Ralph, he doesn’t seem to punish them, but rather he does nothing. During the beastie assembly, after the outbreak of the crowd’s disobedience, Piggy told Ralph to blow the conch, but in response, he said, “ If I blow the conch and they don’t come back; then we’ve had it…”(pg92).
On the first hunt, the boys failed to slaughter a pig, but still know that, “Next time there would be no mercy.” Then, to assure the group had the idea even clearer, “[Jack] looked around fiercely, daring them to contradict” (P.31).

Shortly after hunting, and succeeding, the boys return with a pig shouting “‘Kill the pig. Cut her throat.
We live in a society today where judging others is a regular, everyday activity. Many people may blame a significant amount of this issue on the excessive amount of technology we have access too, but this problem has been around for much longer. In the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, it shows the ugliness that can come from judging others, but it also teaches two young children, Scout and Jem, to listen to others, so that you can have the opportunity to learn from them. Throughout the story many characters were able to demonstrate this lesson for the kids, but three that were true examples of it were Tom Robinson, Atticus Finch and Boo Radley. With only aiming to stand up for what they believe in and not worrying what everyone
He got upset with them because keeping a fire burning was more important than hunting for pigs. This was more important to their survival because the smoke from the fire was a signal so they could be rescued. Ralph was mad how they hunters weren’t able to keep the fire going when the ship was near since that was an opportunity to get off the island. Ralph believed that if the fire was still burning, the ship would see them and rescue them. “Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.”
He kept tell the story about how they had killed the pig. I told him to keep the fire going and that it was important but he didn’t take me seriously. After that we had a fest I didn’t want to take part in it but the meat look so good that my mouth started to
