His statement of having no mercy the next time gives great insight to his changing mindset. He will not hesitate to take a life anymore, he has lost a significant amount of his innocence because of this. After this encounter Jack goes on another hunt and is successful this time. He and the other bring the carcass back and tell Ralph, “’ I cut the pigs throat,’ said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it. ‘Can I borrow yours, Ralph, to make a nick in the hilt?’ The boys chattered and danced.
Jack is disagreeing with Ralph on every topic, so he calls a meeting. During the meeting he insults Ralph and tries to make the boys promote him to chief. The boys will not do this which outrages Jack. Jack cannot deal with Ralph any more and declares, “‘I’m not going to be a part of Ralph’s lot’”(Golding 127). Ralph is now not only obsessed with hunting, but is straying from their ‘government’.
Ralph, in correlation with his insistence on being found and building shelter, decides to build a signal fire and places some of the boys to attend to it. This is juxtaposed with Jack wanting to hunt yet again. Jack takes the boys and uses them to assist in killing the pig, but, coincidentally, a ship passes the island while Jack has the boys that were responsible for keeping the fire going (Golding 68). This once again shows evidence of Jack’s insistence on the need to hold power. He feels that orders from Ralph don 't apply to him.
Jack uses fear and manipulation to gain power over the rest of the group. "Ralph 's right of course. There isn 't a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we 'd hunt it and kill it. We 're going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody.
Additionally, they start to dance and chant around the fire “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood"(152). Because it dark and the boys did not stop chanting, the boys think Simon is the beast. Therefore, Simon is killed in the feast, and the boys do not feel guilty about their actions.
In the beginning of Lord of the flies Jack was Innocent and not yet a killer. Jack was standing over the pig with the Knife ready to kill, but a wave of terror washed over him freezing him in his tracks. The pig untangled itself and broke free leaving Jack still frozen with terror. “I was choosing a place.” said jack. “I was just waiting for a moment to decide where to stab him.” (Golding 31).
The ruling of the conch came into place due to Jack's displeasure of order and all control. Another one of Jack's main concern is hunting, which develops his savagery throughout the book. In Lord of the Flies Jacks derange obsession with hunting goes overboard into piglets to humans. Jack starts a lot of disputes that happen on the
Ralph still gives Jack the job to hunt and keep the fire on that will get them rescued. Once they forget to keep the fire on and right then there is a ship, but it did not see them. Piggy gets upset with Jack, and Jack breaks one of Piggy’s glasses. After this Jack and his hunter cruel starts acting like savages, and do not care about the rules. One night when Sam and Eric are on watch they see something fall down from the sky, they think its some kind of beast.
