In the beginning, he could not even lay the weapon on the pig, but in this chapter, he killed and chopped the pig’s head to give it to the non-existent beast. Moreover, Simon’s death manifests how brutal the boys could be. When Simon encountered the Lord of the Flies, it stated, “You knew, didn’t you?
In the beginning when they killed a pig they never displayed the head, but do to the savagery that the beast has caused them to take on they are more cruel and deadly.

Thousands of leaders have come and gone, yet not all were true to their people and often chose a corrupted path full of absolute power and tyranny. Although determination and willpower helps people obtain a position of leadership, this same drive can lead to arrogance and an abuse of power. Hundreds of pieces of literature highlight this frequently seen concept of leaders and William Shakespeare was no different when he wrote the play Macbeth.
