One example of how Jack’s autocratic rule comes from violence and fear is how he reacts at the mere mention of the idea that his hunters are not as powerful as he believes. This is illustrated when Ralph, angry at Jack for letting the fire go out, expresses a negative opinion of Jack’s hunters, while Piggy, a logical thinker who supports Ralph, is nearby: “‘What about my hunters?’ ‘Boys armed with sticks.’ Jack got to his feet. His face was red as he marched away.

In the novel the Lord of the Flies, William Golding captures the real image of human cruelty in their violent behaviors. The most prominent piece of cruelty is when the boys viciously attack Simon mistaking him as the beast; killing him with no mercy.

A couple of the boys, Ralph and Piggy, find a conch shell drifting to shore, so Ralph blows in it to round up the rest of the boys who are scattered amongst the island. Everyone, besides the choir boys (who vote for Jack), vote for Ralph to become their chief/leader. Later, Jack turns into a savage and starts his own tribe, taking
“ At last the immediacy of the kill subsided. The boys drew back, and Jack stood up… giggled and flicked them while the boys laughed at his reeking palms (120).” The boys do not mourn and think about what they have just done to the sow, they “laugh and giggle” and Jacks flicks the meat on his hands at the other boys.

The boys still were so afraid of what Dave wanted to tell them that they continued to beat him up until, "He closed his mouth and tried to crawl away" (5). Another way to use suspense is to to show how someone is so angry and afraid that they turn into some they are not and get very violent. At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up. While reading the suspense of how badly the boys wanted to beat Dave up was a release of anger and fear, which is terrifying in the position of
This vicious behavior also supports golding 's theme because the more free reign and control he received the more brutal he became. This situation also goes with jacks behavior as well. Jack "celebration" where the boys we 're dancing around the pigs head on a steak doing a reenactment of the killing of the pig gradually becomes out of control the more the boys start to join in , And Eventually someone gets killed. This supports golding 's theme because it proves that if put in a certain environment with enough freedom humans will eventually start to let out their flawed ways because their is nothing keeping from it. I know that after conducting research golding 's idea about flawed human nature is correct, and I believe that if the right environment and freedom brings out the flaws in the nature of a human, then humans should become more aware of their flawed nature.
This is when he first encounters the pig on a stick, which he names The Lord of the Flies. His fear allows him to hallucinate the sow talking to him and telling him that the savages were going to eventually kill him and letting him know that his evil was inside him and not physically terrorizing the boys on the island.
