William Golding is showing that there are those who are given or earn power and there are those who take it. There are many boys that are now stranded on an island after a plane crash. Ralph, is a carefree preteen and also attractive. Ralph could care less about figuring out where he is, all he knows is that there are no adults around.
This shows Ralph was the better leader than Jack because the boys listen to him more than Jack. Ralph and Jack’s character traits are different in many ways. Ralph is athletic, a productive leader, and is overall the one who demonstrates common sense. For example he is the one who conceives meetings, starts the fire, and helps with shelter.
Additionally, the conch shell symbolizes organization and authority, and when it gets smashed, so does the civilization left in the boys. They first elected their leader, Ralph, based solely on the fact that he was attractive and he had the conch. During the moments when it seemed the boys were contemplating their choice, they did an overview of each of the candidates including Ralph, “there was a stillness about Ralph as he sat that marked him out. There was his size, attractive appearance and most obscurely, yet most powerfully, there was the conch… the delicate thing balanced on his knees and set him apart.” (22).
Jack is a well respected and feared leader on the island, and under his command the boys will do anything. When Ralph and his followers go to get back Piggy’s glasses, Jack tells the boys to capture Samneric. He says to his army “‘Grab them!’ No one moved. Jack shout[s] angrily ‘I said grab them!’

Throughout the novel, Lord of the Flies, power is used to control the boys as they would be in their lives before being on the island. Before the tragic event of landing on the island the boys lived in Britain and went to religious schools. All of the boys lived by obeying the rules; they were taught to be formal and proper in everything that they do. “We’re not savages, we’re English and the English are the best at everything” (42). Power is everyone 's eyes, especially males.
Nintendrone’s angels were relieved that their worst fear hasn’t came true. Nintendrone never felt more rewarded than he ever has in his life. Nintendrone at that moment took all of Sonio’s power he had ever since he was born, Sonio obviously wasn’t happy of this. “It’s no fair you took all of the power away from me, I should’ve won the sword fight against Lynx!” Sonio raged.
127) This quote stands for more than it seems. This is Jack 's way of saying to the others that he is done with them telling him what to do, that he is only willing to be with them on this island if it was on his terms, with his rules. This is a perfect example of how the society is in shambles, they have lost the head of their hunting group, who brings all of the other hunters away with him later when Ralph wasn 't being very attentive. Jack then attempts to create his own twisted
Kennedy went on to win one of the closest elections in U.S. history. He had a method to his madness though. His campaign manager decided to focus on his role as a congressman, war hero, accomplished author, and loving father. They also proposed to have a series of televised debates between the two candidates. These debates were very important to Kennedy’s campaign.
He tried to lead the boys using his knowledge of the adult world and basic necessities, but all did not last for long before Jack started to change, not only himself but the boys as well. He became the leader of the savages who had lost their innocence, having to hunt for themselves and provide for themselves. They saw the brutality that was necessary to survive in the world. When they arrived at the island all the boys were innocent, not knowing what to expect on the island, not sure what to do. By the end of the novel, they had become the definition of barbaric and fought with one another and tried to steal control from one another.
Since the beginning of the novel, Jack wanted Ralph to be forever gone because of the amount of influence he had on others in the island. Additionally, because the other boys had elected Ralph as head of the tribe, Jack felt envious which caused him to feel inferior to his rival. Jack demonstrated his thirst for power over others from the beginning to the end of Lord of the Flies by questioning and arguing every decision of Ralph’s and eventually leaving the
It is better to work in a group than alone because two minds are always better than one. Bill Gates once said “ Every time i get the chance, I hire a lazy person to do a job because they will always find an easier way to finish
I chose a mirror to represent Ralph. When the boys hold an election for chief, Ralph is elected on the basis that he’s pretty. He confidently says “we want to be rescued, so we shall be rescued.” Ralph has charisma so this statement is just left unchallenged by the boys. He has no better idea about when they’ll be rescued than the rest of them!
