The people’s moral instincts were damaged because of the chaos created from the situation. It will go to the extent of even ruining a person’s reputation. But that was in the McCarthy Era. During the Salem Witch trials, “ Anyone standing up… and denying that witches existed would have faced immediate arrest, ...possibly the rope.” (Miller 25). In the 1690s, no one could express their true thoughts on the situation or they would meet their demise.
“We all have good and evil inside us.It's what side we choose to follow that defines who we are”-J.K. Rowling William Golding wrote Lord of the Flies during a time of conflict and war. In response to all the conflict Golding wrote Lord of the Flies, a book about kids that crash landed on an island and how the isolation affects them. Golding wrote Lord of the Flies to tell that humans are corrupted to evil or forced to be good based by their surroundings. Jack a character in the book is an example of this. In the beginning of the book Jack is a cocky kid who says “ I ought to be chief,because I’m chapter chorister and head boy” ( Golding,22).

In Lord of the Flies there were a lot of similarities and differences from the book to the movie. In the beginning of the book the boy’s plane crashed into a body of water and the pilot dies but, in the movie the pilot is alive but is severely injured. In both the movie and the book Piggy finds the conch and has Ralph blow it, due to his asthma. When on the island in both the book and the movie Jack was mean to Piggy and whipped some of the little un's. The movie mentioned that Jack went to military school while, in the book they all were choir boys.
The island society plan could have worked but due to the immaturity of twelve year old boys, it fails. Jack’s jealous of Ralph’s power, and decides the boys should go against civilization and become savages. This is a result of immaturity and because of this, there is a civil war. Another result of immaturity was when Samneric, Piggy, and Ralph go up to the tribe and try to maturely make things right with the savages, the tribe attacks Piggy and as a result, he dies. Samneric also got forced to go over and join the tribe and maybe, if they were more mature, they could have stood up for themselves and stayed on Ralph’s side.
If you don’t eliminate them, you will die on this island”. Consequently, it would be a bloodbath. First, a power struggle between the groups, then within the groups.

This was explained in detail when Roger throws the stones at Henry, ultimately, he threw to miss.
Similarly, in the book Lord of the Flies, EVIL is presented as being innate, unwanted, even though it can be used to motivate and aid us in critical situations. When the boys first discovered they were stranded on the island, the little devil on their shoulder (representing the EVIL within the human spirit) whispered in their ear, “you are the strongest one, and better off without them. If you don’t eliminate them, you will die on this island”. Consequently, it would be a bloodbath. First, a power struggle between the groups, then within the groups.
Later, the ideological differences between Jack and Ralph prove too great, and Jack sets fire to the island in his bid to kill him, “smoke...seeping through the branches in white and yellow wisps, the patch of blue sky overhead turned to the color of a storm cloud” (152). The moment that Ralph opposed Jack, he became an enemy, no matter that he and Jack had worked together before. Jack’s own bloodlust also sabotaged his goal of never returning to their past lives since it alerted a passing ship to their presence. In essence, Jack wasn’t a destructive character, but rather a leader who compromised his morals to a point where he had almost
