They are in a fury of wild chanting and bloodlust, and imagine Simon as the beast, soon "There were no words, and no movements but the tearing of teeth and claws."(153). Eventually Simon is murdered by the outraged crowd. After Simon’s death, Jack sends his hunters to grab Piggy’s glasses in order to light fire, and that breaks the tension between Ralph and Jack, finally resulting in Piggy’s death. At this point, Jack transforms into a blood-thirsty killer and targets Ralph. The twins reveals Jack’s plan to Ralph and say: “‘the chief and Roger－’ ‘－yes, Roger－’ ‘They hate you, Ralph.
At this point in the book the inherent violence that has been building up through the whole story because of anger and fear takes over and they kill Simon. This shows how humans are inherently violent and without rules in place violence creates a society so defective that it drives people to kill their friends. Another example of violence creating a dysfunctional society in Lord of the Flies is when Jack and the hunters let the fire out to go kill their first pig. “I cut the pig’s throat,” said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it. “Can I borrow yours, Ralph, to make a nick in the hilt?” The boys chattered and danced.
During his first battle Charley sees everyone around him dying, two bullets collide right in front of his face, a cannon ball taking off a man’s head and then going through an officer’s horse. After the battle, Charley finds that blood from dead bodies has tinted a nearby river pink. Charley even wet his pants in terror the second time he went to fight the Confederates. During his third battle, Charley runs at the Confederates, yelling for them all to die. After the battle Charley finds that his friend has been shot in the stomach, so Nelson asks Charley help him kill himself.
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). The lord of the flies from the head of the pig begin to talk to Simon, it explains that it is the beast and it is within the boys. When Simon goes to warn the boys about the beast, he is killed by them all.
Next Jack ignores that order to stay and tend to the rescue fire and goes to kill a pig. On page 68 it was Jack and a few hunters to make sure the rescue fire does not go out but again they go on a pig hunt. This affects the rest of the boys because while the fire was out a ship passed by that could have rescued them. The last situation where Jack does not follow the rules is when he chooses to wear face paint when. He was not supposed to because the chief Ralph told him not to.
He decapitates a sow and hangs the bloody head on a stick. Under Jack's leadership, Roger twists the spear in the rectum of the sow and the sow screams in agony "He slowly drives his spear into the anus of the sow, torturing it more than killing it” (Golding ) Jack and the other hunters laugh when they see where Roger's spear is located. They think it is funny. Jack has lost his good reasoning. His good senses are replaced with chaos, disorder, and evil.
After Jack’s intentional killing of Piggy, he responds violently, “‘...That’s what you’ll get! I meant that! There isn’t a tribe for you anymore...I’m chief!’” Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph. The point tore the skin and flesh over Ralph’s ribs, then sheared off and fell in the water” (Golding 181). Jack’s jealousy of Ralph’s authority caused him to take away all of Ralph’s group members, and would lead him to wanting to ultimately take him down.
According to the novel Lord of the Flies, “Kill the beast！ Cut his throat! Spill his blood.” (Golding 192). This is what the hunters and Jack are singing this when they are killing Simon and dance around the fire. This shows that they want to kill something for fun, it can be a pig, a beast even a human being. They become savagery when they are dancing around fire and killing creatures when they want.
Firstly is the 4 pigs, he force them to confess they work for Snowball, after the pigs confession, he order the dog to tear their throat apart in front of every animal. Then include the hens, sheeps and many other animal. It turn to a massacre afterward, the smell of blood is everywhere. Stalin also use the same way with the one that goes against him. In 1930s he give a out “Great Terror” which is a plan to execute every single one member of the military Communist Party that Stalin thought they might oppose him.
After a pig run with the hunters and Ralph, things seemed to fall apart quickly. Jack and Ralph have an argument which makes the kids choose between Ralph being leader and Jack being leader. This is where the strict bold lines of civility and savagery appear. The kids in Jack’s tribe were chanting and making a dance around the fire, they accidentally kill Simon thinking he was the beast. Ironically, Simon was going over to them to tell them there is no beast, since he just finished having a hallucination of the pig head speaking to him naming himself ‘The Lord Of The Flies’.
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. Piggy 's murder was also unjustified but also done with intent, “Piggy fell forty feet and landed on his back across that square, red rock in the sea. His head open and stuff came out and turned red, piggy’s arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig who had just been killed.”(201) This death is different than the other one, in that they were fully aware of what they were doing and killed piggy anyway with no remorse. Inhabiting the island for the amount of time the boys have been there has caused the boys to revert to savages who resort to
This takes a turn for the worst when the boys end up killing Simon because they mistake him for the beast. Another symbol that Golding uses is a pig 's head. The pig 's head is symbolic of the inner beasts of men. As they (the boys) become more enthralled in the hunt and its bloodlust, they even begin to worship this beast, leaving it sacrifices, such as the sow 's head on a pike, as if it were a tribal god (Neighbors). This event occurred in front of Simon without the hunters ' knowledge.
The boys have now developed a daily routine and are talking about the “beastie” lurking around the island. Jack is now obsessed with the idea of killing a pig, so he paints his face and approaches the jungle chanting, “Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Bash her in.’ Ralph watched them envious and resentful. Not till they flagged and the chant died away, did he speak.
