People are often scared of monsters when they are young, but once they grow older and mature, they begin to realize that the idea was made up in their heads. However, some people are so set on the theory of there being mythological creatures that they do not think of the possibility of actual people being monsters instead. We like to believe that we live in a world where none of us are sane and our behavior is superb. When in reality, it is the opposite. We do not realize how much hatred, rape, and violence there is in the world.
In the novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, there was a constant struggle and fear of what an island could bring upon these premature adolescents. ; Noting that they were off without any grownups.

Golding’s representation of the glasses shows that society takes away from those who seem distasteful or unsavory, overlooking what people possess inside.
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, 84). The way Piggy views life is revealed when he says this and to Piggy life is all technological.

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
Many books possess an evil character, a villain, however the villain normally helps to improve the story and create a depth to the plot. In the work Of Mice and Men, the author John Steinbeck uses the character Curley to show that violence is never the answer.

However if he showed them kindness instead, people wouldn’t see him as an angry person.

If Piggy had not been sophisticated as he was, Jack and Ralph would have gotten into a fight. If anything happens to Ralph there would be no one to protect the powerless ones and Jack would have ruled with his violent ways. Piggy influences the novel in several ways. Although he was not much of a leader, his virtue benefits the boys. He is intelligent and mature, therefore he was able to indicate the true nature of humanity and the evil that is inside each of
