However, these boys have been taught right and wrong, and they still do horrible acts because of the evil within them. Although Simon may seem like an outlier because he represents goodness and is a Christ-like figure, he is not born good, he just becomes good out of the knowledge that it is right. When Simon is killed, it is out of pure evil and love of death by Jack and his followers. Besides this, there is no other reason for the boys to kill him. Even seemingly good figures like Ralph and Piggy “Found themselves eager to take a place in this demented but partly secure society” (Golding 152).
Hijinks are often considered as silly and boisterous, but not particularly useful in any way. That’s the way that Ray treats Jonathan. Jonathan isn’t a person who is going anywhere, and Ray doesn’t want him to go anywhere, because all he requires from Jonathan is amusement. If Jonathan becomes a better person, he won’t be as amusing to Ray, so it is possible that unconsciously Ray tries to stunt him from growing into a better person.

Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever
On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49) He is a very caring person because he doesn’t want Katniss to sacrifice herself for him. Instead, he is helpful, and helps her, for example by helping her get away from the enemies.

Prospero’s ideals and views destroyed right when a spirit questions his ethics. Ariel, a non human spirit, even admits he feels bad for the men that Prospero tortured. This causes Prospero to forgive the men, not because he truly wants to, but because of his ego.
