In the beginning of the book, the choir was described as "the creature was a party of boys, marching"(19). This portrays the choirboys as the beast and foreshadows that this group will eventually turn into a dark creature.

The usage of the boys’ fright of the beast helps justify Jack’s oppressive rule of the boys and the savagery he makes.
All day I’ve been working with Simon. No one else.’” (p.70) Good is mentioned, but not without the equivalent mention of evil, as shown through how the other boys abandoned the project to have fun. Throughout all of this, Simon, the most pure of the boys, is physically affected by evil through a disorder, presumed to be epilepsy. In chapter eight, the Lord of the Flies cause him to have a seizure and blackout because the personification of evil is too strong for Simon to handle.

He doesn’t care about the well-being of the boys though he main focus is just being in charge. When Ralph was in charge of the group Jack was very upset and mad.
But, wherever a man goes, men will pursue and paw him with their dirty institutions, and, if they can, constrain him to belong to their desperate odd-fellow society” (pg.156).

Jack is presented in an animalist manner in the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding. He is portrayed as someone who turns savage or animal-like due to his behaviour. In chapter three Jack showcases his behaviour by “[going] on [thinking] by [himself] the madness [coming] into his eyes again, [as he] thought [he] might kill”().

“The condition of man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone.”- Thomas Hobbes. This quote represents how humans, in their natural state, fight for their own benefit. It addresses the philosophical debate of nature versus nurture, and in The Lord of the Flies by William Golding, his views of this debate are expressed. The characters are stripped from civilization, forced to act for themselves, and place their needs above all. People are shaped by society, but when deprived of this structure they are forced to adapt, and as Golding argues, peoples learned behavior is quickly overcome when placed in a difficult environment In the book many of the characters started to detach from civilization, and descend into savagery.

But before he was able to attempt anything, The Boss charged into the place where the men gathered, grabbing his son by the collar and dragging him away.
