First is when Jack was talking without the conch shell. This is shown in almost every assembly like on page 91 “Jack shut up! You haven’t got the conch”. Ralph made the rule of the only boy that can talk is the one with the conch but Jack chooses to ignore it. Next Jack ignores that order to stay and tend to the rescue fire and goes to kill a pig.
Once he overcame his fear of killing his humanity, he was able to not only kill pigs, but also kill people, and be okay with it. When the group was up on the mountain looking for the pig they came up with a game, one of the boys plays the pig and the group chants and tries to kill the pig. Ralph was there when they first came up with the game, Ralph who is supposed to represent the “good” even lost himself.

The only people who honestly thought for themselves in this group are Piggy, Ralph, Simon, and Jack.
He is also described as being in an intermediate state, who has “lost prominent tummy of childhood and not yet old enough for adolescence” (p11). From this, the readers can infer that Ralph is still just another innocent boy not ready to realize the malicious evils of mankind. The other boys initially accept Ralph as a leader. He is the first to summon all the boys with the conch, which serves as a symbol and token of authority. Although Jack expresses strong desire to become chief, the boys elect Ralph as a leader, suggesting an air of charisma that made him worthy of his position.
He was being treated unfairly and the boys picked on him but he endured it as much as he could. He complained about how he was being treated while holding the conch, but if the boys treated Jack the way they treated Piggy, he would have gotten physical about it. Conjointly, before Simon's murder takes place, everyone feast on the pig that Jack and his hunters killed. After they ate things started to get intense between Ralph and Jack. Fortunately, Piggy was there to stop it.
Close, close, close! I 'm the reason why it 's no go? Why things are what they are… You know perfectly well you’ll only meet me down there- so don’t try to escape”(Golding 133).

Spill his blood!’” (168) Jack’s tribe, overcome by their inner savagery, without thinking kill Simon thinking he’s the beast, this shows that the boys on the island have lost the part of civilization inside them.
