Unfortunately, most of the boys went to Jack which forced Ralph to go visit their camp to make them see reason. At the same time that this was going on, Simon, a gentle, kind boy, had been rushing back to camp, to tell the rest of the boys of his revelation, that the “beast” that they had been scared of, was really inside of them. However, covered in the blood, sweat, and the darkness of the night, when Simon entered the camp, the boys had began to see Simon not as himself, but as the monster. Consequently, they killed him with their bare hands and teeth, as if they were predators ripping into prey. The text states, “The beast struggled forward….at once the crowd surged after it… leapt onto the beast, screamed, struct, bit, tore.
The crematorium did not involve them looking death in the face, but with the gallows they were dehumanized because they could not look away from the facts that life is not fair and just, and that their beliefs should be doubted. When the young pipel with the angel looking face was condemned to die this idea grew. As the people were watching the boy about to die they wondered aloud, “[w]here is merciful God, where is He,” and “[w]here He is? This is where...hanging here from these gallows”(Weisel, 64-65). The Jews’ faith and beliefs in justice and a God who has a plan to save them and do right by them evaporized when the young pipel was killed.
The author uses simon not being able to speak after he woke up from fainting and when Ralph and Piggy stay with Jack tribe instead of heading back to their tribe to symbolism the boys steps toward evil. “He mouthed words that did not reach the air” (Golding 146) and “Come away. There’s going to be trouble. And we’ve had our meat.” These quotes from the story show how characters who represent good nature and intellect are being ignored by the boys. These quotes connect to the theme because they show how innocence and reason have officially been abandoned by the group of boys.

The boys become crueler after the killing of Simon takes place; killing a boy that was in their tribe and withheld the truth of the Beast contained no logic and destroyed Ralph internally. Ralph's leadership starts to fall apart at this moment due to the fact that his emotions are taking over him; he feels scared from the idea of murder, never being able to get home, and the beast. Ralph was not a leader at this time because he was not able to control himself and with that, he did not stop the boys from destroying Simon and the logic within him. The decision all these boys made together fully took away the whole importance of logic and their emotions took full control of them. Their ideas of fear are mostly shown at meetings called by the conch.

This is a crude concept, that over time these men would become so used to bloodshed that they lose their appreciation for human life. Once someone loses that appreciation are they still human?
