An example of this irrational decision making is in chapter 5 of the novel. Jack and his tribe of hunters were in charge of keeping the fire going, so the boys could be rescued. Unfortunately he fails doing so and a ship passes without notice of the boys (Golding chapter 4). This shows that the boys acted irrationally to the situation and instead of acting on what was most important, they acted on what they wanted. This proves the point that the boys’ irrational behavior is due to biological
A problem gets too burdensome, then into the furnace with it.” In few words, fire is a way to escape your past, your problems and anything unwanted. I believe that Beatty as well as the rest of the characters were mistaken in the role of fire.

Some of the boys like Jack have already been taken over by their savage natures and they can't be rescued from that. The conch was described as magical, shining and beautiful in the story, now the way it is being described emphasizes how it's lost its power.

Of course Ralph took demand stripped off all of his clothes and jumped in the lagoon. Piggy had no other choice but to join him, piggy slowly unlike Ralph took his clothes one by one, he was very insecure because he didn’t look like Ralph at all, in both the movie and the novel this scene was descriptive and was shown as William Golding wrote it. As the movie carried on the group had to choose a leader of the boys the 2 boys in the vote were, Jack and Ralph. Piggy knew that everyone would choose Ralph for his looks and obscure body so he hesitated to raise his hand but in the end went with majority which declared Ralph the leader of the boys.
Soda, Darry, Dally realized that too by hearing that Johnny still died even though they won the rumble. Dally even heard that Johnny said that fighting was useless after all. He felt sad that even he won the rumble, he lost his friend. He decided then to rob a grocery store and try to threaten the cops so he could get his death. The other problem Ponyboy solved it really well was that he decided to save the kids that were trapped in the church considering he might ignite the fire.
Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is a novel about a futuristic society where books are banned and firemen burn books rather than put out fires. The main character Montag is a fireman who lives with his wife Mildred. Montag ends up stealing books which is against the law especially because he is a fireman; and Mildred is against anything that has to do with books. Society wants everyone to be happy but there 's an alarming mechanical hound in this novel that kills people and is asymbol of fear. Bradbury’s novel shows how a society overcomes the eradication of books through the use of symbolism, motif, and imagery.
The oppressive society impacted Montag's identity because at the beginning of the book he believed in burning books and at the end of the book he didn’t believe that books should be burned. Three events that burned exemplify this impact are stealing his first book, watching the girl burn her house down and her in it, and him burning his own house down. The oppressive society impacted Montag's identity when he stole his first book. Montag is looking for a book to steal to read. In the book it tells us how montage stole the book “Montag's hand closed like a mouth, crushed the book with wild devotion , with an insanity of mind lessens to his chest” ( 34-35).
The people are no longer aware of what is going on around them to the extent that they are not aware that the war has begun until the TV is destroyed seconds before the bomb exploded destroying the city. Furthermore, the government also uses to change the history to suit their own interests. This is clear in two instants; the first is Montag’s surprise when heard Clarisse telling him that firefighter used to put out fires not starting them. The second is when the firemen capture and kill an innocent man to conceal the truth about Montag’s escape so as not to admit their failure in capture Montag. It shows the enormity of the corruption of the system, as it has no regard for human life.

However, Romeo wouldn’t have bought the poison and tried to kill himself if he had received the letter that Friar John was supposed to deliver. Friar John should have delivered the letter, but he could not because, “Finding him, the searchers of the town, Suspecting that we both were in a house where the infectious pestilence did reign, Sealed up the doors and would not let us forth”(Fri John.5.2.8-11). If Friar John had focused on delivering that letter instead of waiting for his friend who was stuck in quarantine, he could have gotten the job done with ease. That letter was of great importance and if he had just went without delay straight to Romeo instead of stopping to wait for his friend he would have gotten the letter to Romeo in time and Romeo and Juliet would have not died. Therefore the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is Friar John’s fault.
