In Lord of the Flies, the boys had separated themselves into 2 groups, Ralphs or Jacks. Ralphs group was more civilized but Jacks group was more savage and were more into having fun than focusing on surviving on the island and thinking about the long run. The two leaders had come off to show themselves as strong and independent but later on, they started to gain this hatred in themselves selves for each other it grew so much that Jack had come to the point where he was ready to kill Ralph because he posed as a threat to him. In the book, it states how Ralph finds out how the other group is planning to kill him when all he wanted to do was try to be leader to keep everyone
Through examination of Lord of the Flies, Golding seems to share this point of view. When left in an environment lacking authority, the boys attempt to follow the fundamental rule of nature, electing Ralph as their leader and for a time, following his rules. However, when another boy desired the same position, competition arose and Ralph was revealed to be less powerful and disrespected by the group. Jack found his power in feeding off the other boys’ fears, and using violent, animalistic techniques, which proved to be what they truly desired. War broke out between the two, as Hobbes predicted would happen in such circumstances, and morality was only restored when a powerful figure of authority finally arrived on the island.
Fear was also spread through each other because of each other. In Lord of the Flies, the boys had separated themselves into 2 groups, Ralphs or Jacks. Ralphs group was more civilized but Jacks group was more savage and were more into having fun than focusing on surviving on the island and thinking about the long run.

Some see the beast as primitivity or savagery, while others see the beast as power. Many of the issues on the island arise from power struggle. Ralph is very clear to state his leadership qualifications, “’I ought to be chief,’ said Jack with simple arrogance, ‘because I'm chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp.’” But, Jack disapproves and believes that he is more qualified.
“Lots of rules! Then when anyone breaks 'em—” But his desire for many controls did not of course extend to controls he disliked, to those over himself” (Spitz). Jack made sure the hunters did exactly what he said. David Spitz compares in to Hitler or Mussolini. Jack’s thirst for power and devolution is what led him to be the dangerous, oppressive leader
In the novel Golding used Jack’s method of control to represent Machiavelli’s ideas of how people should rule. Machiavelli believes that if you are a politician than it doesn’t matter how nice you are, what citizens need most is effectiveness so then you can create overall stability. One of Machiavelli’s biggest believes was that the most effective way to rule is by using necessary cruelty. This is shown effective by Roger when he tortures Sam in Eric until they agree to join Jack’s tribe (Pages 188-189). Although it is wrong torturing Sam and Eric it was an effective way to gain control because now Jack is able to get inside information about
In the novel Lord of the Flies, Ralph represents leadership and management, but has the loss of knowledge like Piggy has and is not as cold-blooded as Jack. Ralph relates to Martin Luther King Jr. ’s quote because he goes through many difficulties such as building shelters for the littluns and creating a signal fire to be rescued. In the very beginning of the book, Ralph takes the lead alone when the time comes to explore the castle rock, despite the fears of the so-called beast. Also in chapter two when Ralph said “and if we have a signal going they’ll come and take us off.”
Ambition can drive almost anyone to do things that their consciences normally would not let them do. For this tragic hero, ambition is his folly. Macbeth’s ambition causes him to be susceptible to outsides influences, overrides his conscience and ultimately brings his destruction. Macbeth’s actions have a profound effect on his character for the rest of the play.
However, Jayden noticed that the combat on the planet was not very advanced due to the sloppily done killing of the street urchin. So, if Owen was one of the biggest and strongest, Jayden thought he could easily take him and even beat Gavin, whoever he is. Jayden believed this due to the fact that he was actually very good at combat. A prodigy, almost. He learned from a man named Liam, a man like Jayden’s father after Jayden’s real father had been murdered.
Ralph’s vision is more logical unlike Jack’s vision. For example, when Ralph was yelling at Jack he states “I was talking about smoke! Don’t you want to be rescue? All you can talk about is pig, pig, pig!”(55).Evidently this is an example of Ralph’s vision to get off the island. Ralph tells Jack that he doesn’t have the conch.
The changing relationship between Ralph and Jack, the protagonist and antagonist in Lord of the Flies is one where these two boys at first seem like allies but quickly diverge and distance themselves apart and soon become completely at odds with one another. Due to the different approaches they take in the leadership of a group of boys stranded on an uninhabited island, the group splits into two opposing and even warring factions, showing the severity of their antagonism. In the beginning, relations between Ralph and Jack are not as hostile. When they explore their island, they appear to act like friends, fooling around and casually playing.
“How could you be safe by the little stream or on the open beach?” (183) After Ralph ran away, he was alone with no one to help him while he was injured. Ralph doesn’t feel safe anywhere since they group of savage boys could be anywhere to attack Ralph. After they group of boys decided to join Jack in his tribe, the group of boys turned into savages.
