Ralph is trying to get everyone on the island organized and they each would have a role but Jack wants to take over the island and rule it. The dictator in Jack becomes dominant in his personality during the panic over the beast sighting on the mountain. In trying to get Ralph impeached, he uses his rhetorical skills to twist Ralph's words. In defense, he offers to the group a rationale that "He'd never have got us meat," asserting that hunting skills make for an effective leader. Jack assigns a high value only to those who he finds useful or agreeable to his views and looks to silence those who do not please him.
This doesn’t seem like the smartest thing to do especially when there are people who’re oblivious to the monster roaming the streets. Also, kudos to Victor for making his fiend feel like "an unfortunate and deserted creature; [The monster looks] around [with] no relation or friend upon earth.[... ][He’s] full of fears, for if [he fails] there, [he’s] an outcast in the world forever" (Shelley 122). Because of the villagers, the monster had become more educated, finding an efficient way to escape his eternal isolation. He first chose to confront the blinded man since he had no reaction when the monster approached him.
Their young mindset tempts them to see the worst. They act upon their poor thoughts.The boys argue where the beast comes from and when Simon suggests it comes from the water, the boys laugh and make fun of him. They then continue to argue and eventually Jack splits with his hunter followers to go find out for themselves. Jack felt the need that if he proved whether the beast was out there, that maybe he would be able to gain some of the respect he thinks he deserves. Simon, being one of the wiset boys, said, “Maybe there is a beast...maybe it’s only us…” (Chapter 5, page 80).

The mask that Jack wore allows him to not feel guilty about killing a living creature. It has the ability to turn him into a savage. Furthermore, when the hunters attempt to recreate the pig killing scene, they overemphasize, “All at once, Robert was screaming and struggling with the strength of frenzy.

Bilbo is just a little hobbit and even says it himself. Because of this many people don’t expect much from him. Despite this, Bilbo shows great character development, bravery, and strength.

William Golding proves that without rules to live by, people will eventually become savage. Savagery is more present when people 's innocence slowly fade away. When Jack brings the boys hunting, the boys do not know what to do since they have never been exposed to that behavior before. Jack makes it seem okay to disrespect what they kill to the point where the boys look insane. The boys not only kill the pig for its feed but to mutilate it and decide,”This head is for the beast.

In the novel "Lord of the Flies", the boys attempted to create a working society with hunters, a chief, where everyone could be safe, and more importantly feel safe. This society though didn 't work out; there were too many outlying problems, like Jack wanting desperately to best Ralph, or Roger being a secret sociopath, or the fact that throughout the entire book they were terrified of some beast, which was really just them all along. In "Lord of the Flies" the boys are so blinded by terror and excitement that they don 't take any time to clear their heads, think, and realize that what they have been doing is completely wrong. In the book one character, Simon, realized that the beast that they had been scared of the whole time had really been them, and when he tries to tell the others what he has discovered, they beat him to death with spears before anyone can hear or understand what he was trying so hard to tell them. In the book one of the characters, Ralph, says "Things are breaking up.

Symbols, characters, and the beginning and end of the novel express what Golding believes about savagery. Golding chose every part of his story for a reason. There was no 'filling ' in his story, meaning that there was nothing he wrote in to just to take up space. Everything he wrote expressed his ideas that savagery can only come from inside of man and that everyone is a natural 'beast ' to the world. His characters showed his audience that lack of a civilized life can lead to the destruction of a society.
