Ralph and Jack’s opinions are divided on this point, and “the careful plan of this assembly [breaks] down.”(P112) The conference breaks up in discord. Before this meeting, a group of boys which is led by Jack goes to “kill a pig”(P86) and this makes “the fire out”(P87) indirectly.

In the novel Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, it shows that the essence of man is evil and unacceptable. A group of boys get stranded on an island where they make the most of their situation, and ultimately turn on each other. One of the boys, named Jack, proves Golding’s point that the essence of man is terrible by behaving and acting like a savage. He and Ralph frequently intervene and try to assert dominance to become the leader of their tribe. Jack shows the essence of man is corrupt by his loss of innocence, his behavior like a dictator, and his uncivilized acts.
The desire for vengeance grows when the Geats decide to hang his arm from the rafters. Beowulf’s bloodlust is so excessive he tries to murder Grendel in the most inhumane ways, and even goes to the extent of sacrificing one of his own men to satisfy his need to kill the undying Grendel. In Atalanta, Meleager and Atalanta go hunting and caught so many animals that they even attracted Artemis’ unwanted attention. Artemis therefore grew upset and “molded a huge boar, mud-colored, with red evil eyes” (177) Atalanta and Meleager obviously slaughter an abundance of animals to get Artemis’ attention. It is unclear why Atalanta becomes upset with Meleager after killing her brother bear, but she is excited to hunt with Meleager.

On the other hand, before, when they were under Ralph 's government, he had rules that most people followed and that kept order.
In the beginning when they killed a pig they never displayed the head, but do to the savagery that the beast has caused them to take on they are more cruel and deadly. Another example of how the beastie to represent primal savagery is the killing of Simon by Jack's tribe. After Simon has confirmed that the beast is not real he goes to the beach to tell the others but is met with violence and killed. "Surrounded by a fringe of inquisitive bright creatures, itself a silver shape beneath the steadfast constellations, Simon's dead body moved out toward the open sea. "(Golding 154)

The Flawed Civilization William Golding’s Lord of the Flies gives an overall grim and pessimistic view of humans and leadership. Heavily inspired by the events of World War II, psychology, and dystopian fiction, Golding develops these ideas through the characters, which all represent different types of people. The narrator is also used to explicitly state these ideas. In the book, Golding touches upon his views of the masses, leadership, society, and rules. The island, in Golding’s eye, is really a parallel of the whole world and all of society.
