What does it take to survive a deadly plane crash on a seemingly deserted island? The boys have to fight for survival and remain civilized during their stay at this island. The thought of not being rescued caused conflict within the group of British schoolboys. This conflict led to the murder of the smartest kid in the group. In William Golding’s “Lord of the Flies”, Jack is responsible for Piggy’s death for many reasons: Jack disliked Piggy because he was different, Jack became leader of a new group based solely on his hatred for Piggy, and Jack was jealous of Piggy’s relationship with ralph.
The story of Ronald Gene Simmons. On the 22nd of December, 1987 the worst mass murder in Arkansas history took place. A man by the name of Ronald Gene Simmons went on a killing spree. He started off by killing his wife, kids, and his three year old granddaughter, but it didn’t stop there. He killed his family and quite a few harmless townspeople because he went insane, because why else would you kill harmless people?
This past week, dozens of parent’s minds were put to ease as they embraced their lost boys. Over 30 boys were found alive and well on a deserted island after a plane crash about a month ago. However, some parents had no child to hug at the airport, as two children – “Piggy” Charles and Simon Anson both sadly perished on the island. The Island Times got an exclusive interview with Ralph from “The Lord of the Flies” in which he recounted his time on the island “We arrived on the island from a plane crash about a month ago, scared and hungry. The other boys elected me as their chief, but eventually Jack Merridew took over.
As Jack’s moral character deteriorates, it brings his savagery to the surface, allowing the remnants of civilization to be forgotten. In the beginning of the novel, a group of young boys find themselves alone, without any adults, on an island after
This shows the human nature of children and men when they are away from society and order for a long time. If they do not get what they want, then they will drive themselves crazy trying to fight and in turn, become savages, who are focused on killing and hunting. They are blinded by their anger and illusions that they forget about the real point, which is trying to escape from the island and their new goal is to kill each other off so they alone can be the chief of the island, but eventually all the boys will have to end up dying from natural causes or battles if they are not saved by a ship. Their morals are ruined and this leads to further chaos on the island. Once the chaos starts to happen on the island, Ralph also starts to rethink his idea of being chief.
Jack Merridew is by far the most powerful individual on the island. He influences the boys to do things by yelling at them throughout the book. Just as it is stated in The Perils of Obedience by Kendra Cherry, “The physical presence of an authority figure dramatically increased compliance,” (Cherry 2). Jack is the main authority figure that has a lot of power of the kids because of his appeal to what they want and to the way he runs things. He runs his tribe like a dictatorship over the rest of the boys, but because they do what they want to do they comply with what he says, even though it is not the right thing.
This boy was only dreading his trip to his new private school 30,000 feet in the air before blacking out and finding himself stranded and alone in a deserted island. But within the short time span of five weeks, he’s innocence was taken from him. I am lucky to interview Ralph Bradshaw, age 12, after weeks of silence, of his deadly, horrifying experience in the stranded island he would call “Hell” itself. Many know the tale of the 47 boys mysteriously disappearing and found wild-like, but Ralph knows there was more to it. After befriending Stanley and Simon, (seen in Pg. 2) he was appointed leader by majority vote.
His qualities of showing strength along with intelligence sets him apart from the rest of the characters, leaving him to develop essential rules for the group to follow, since it’s the only thing that’s holding the boys back from anarchy (Goulding 91). Such rules were keeping a fire going on the mountains, using the rocks beyond the bathing pool as a lavatory, shelters needing to be built, and keeping water from the stream in coconut shells under fresh leaves. All of these rules ended up being broken by the group and Ralph addressed them during a solemn meeting (Golding 79-81). Their one and only chance to get off the island turned out to be when Jack and the rest of the group disobeyed about keeping the fire lit on the mountain for ships to see the smoke. The “little uns” had started disappearing and without any rules being followed, they were never found.
Jack Gruener was born in Krakow, Poland in 1927. Jack was an only child. He was twelve years old when the ghetto Plaszow was being built.

He soon went to Birkenau, where he got Prisoner

The boys no longer had adults in their lives, and because of this void, they had to become responsible. They attempted to create rules, shelters, and a way off the island. They attempted to provide for one another, and eventually began to act a little like adults. “…The ground was hardened by an accustomed tread and as Jack rose to his full height he heard something moving on it.
The want for power strengthens and his hunger increases, but what he was unaware of was the fact that he was destroying his own mind. He was brainwashed by his surroundings to think that in that situation, it was acceptable. Jack’s evilness has officially broken everyone's norms on the island. These young boys have been exposed to the wild and this has destroyed the minds’ of these kids and has turned the kids into
