Therefore, the knowledge people gain about good and bad affects their emotions while making actions. Civilization would collapse and society would turn into a chaos in the absence of the sense of guilt, because it awakens in people the knowledge they obtained through their life and reminds them of the difference between right and wrong, and the different laws and rules that must be obeyed. Moreover, civilization oppresses the death and revenge drives people have. Humans are naturally aggressive. Hence, this knowledge is essential for the survival of
The tolerance to break this is accepted more or less among people, and their success makes other hard-working people in to believing the same. Although the official rules, kings and leaders, in this case Macbeth, can believe that dishonesty sometimes can be a tolerated method by helping themselves and the ones that surrounds them to success. Macbeth faces a hard time standing up to his very own decisions and listens to lady Macbeth that eventually makes him want to live up to her expectations. This destroys his personality quickly and gets very paranoid that makes him corrupt and disloyal. When Macbeth achieved the position as a king in such random matter and surprisingly for both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, the lack of preparations not just physically, but mentally has very big consequences.
Unfortunately, toxic masculinity plays a role in every society, therefore many people, mostly men, put on a “mask” to hide behind in order to make a false impression of their best selves. No matter who it is, everyone has a way that they want people to know them by, which is why it plays such an important role. The book Lord of the Flies is a fiction text about a group of young boys whose plane crashes after it was shot down during a war. The boys turn from civilized to savages on their long journey on the island as they become less and less of a society. Toxic masculinity affects society in more ways than one and often is used to get ahead or to be seen as superior.
In the Lord of the Flies, “Maybe there is a beast, maybe it’s only us.” The only thing that caused the children to be bad was their experiences on the island, how traumatic they were. Even the most innocent of children have to be in check by adults and role models. On the island, there is no one there to set the rules. Lord of the Flies takes the side of original sin because they present the idea of the fact that the beast is always inside of us no matter who we are. Without rules or guidelines, people will become savage like the boys are on the island.
Lord of the Flies follows the story of british boys stranded on an island trying to make a civilization and how it comes to fall at the hands of the boys. The novel focuses in on the ideas of innocence, fear, power and primitivity. Irony in the novel shows the reader that one’s primal nature and inner evil can affect society on a large scale. Goldings use of symbolism in relation to themes in the novel shows how people can have rules in civilization but the people rule civilization. In the beginning of the novel, the boys wanted rules and order but it later went to chaos.
“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).
Two of the boys, Ralph and Piggy, meet and discover a conch shell on the beach, and Piggy realizes they can blow into the shell to make a sound which the other boys (who had been on a plane with them) will hear. (The shell represents civilized order. When it breaks, no civilized behavior will be left on the island.) The boys ' plane had crashed because it had been shot down. The boys had been sent away to escape a war.
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.
Max Coleman 2 October 2014 Mrs. Carvelli Literature and Composition 2 FIRST DRAFT The Beast Inside Society’s limitations on behavior are mandatory to conceal mans innate sense of evil. Inside of each man exists an ugly side. A side thought by some to be nonexistent. In William Golding’s esteemed novel Lord of the Flies, he makes it clear that we cannot escape our own cruel inclinations, and that without social order we break down into a state of disarray. From the opening pages, we learn that numerous English children are stuck, stranded on a mysterious island.
In his novel, “Lord of the Flies,” Golding shows that society is defective due to defective human nature. He does this through the use of a group of boys stranded on an island, their behaviour in this situation and their progression towards savagery. He further illustrates this point by using numerous symbols. From the start of the novel, Ralph, the oldest of the boys, is presented as an “ideal” person and leader. He calls the first assembly, using the conch shell he and Piggy found and is voted into the role of leader by the majority of the boys.
