This play was not only recreated for entertainment purposes, but to set as an example to us of how we as people can abuse our power and have actual consequences to those decisions. It shows that we can set someone to die just to save the skin on our own backs. Actual people died, not just these characters but actual human beings lost their lives because of a group or practically an entire community of people lied. It shows that we can gang up on the weaker link and have this mob mentality like a cult. The crucible also sets the example to make history not repeat its self as it has been doing in our country lately.

The Use of Characterization to Develop Theme in Golding’s Lord of the Flies Without society, the organized and civil nature of humans falls apart and leads most people to a more primal and savage way of acting. After this primal nature of humans takes over, humans become driven by the id as opposed to the superego. This lack of empathy allows people to commit horrific acts. An example of this is shown in William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies, when he theorizes what would happen when a group of people are abruptly removed from the strict order of society. Golding’s novel takes place on a deserted island after a plane crash strands a group of young english boys without any adult supervision.
They did not even think it was bad anymore because their state of mind was saying other people are here so it is okay, but in reality lynchings are very brutal and should not be seen as entertainment (Beitler). After listening to the Radio Diary I conclude that the people were describing how harsh lynchings were, they also viewed it as nothing but just an event. People were so caught up in mob mentality, thinking everyone else is watching so it is okay (“Strange Fruit: Anniversary of a Lynching”). Both articles about mob mentality showed that it is the thinking of a group of people who think it is okay to do bad things together such as causing a riot at a sporting event all together (Smith; Edmonds). In conclusion mob mentality is very bad, do not get caught up with bad events just because other people are doing it.

LeBon was the first nineteenth century philosopher to study why people join crowds. The theorist found that people join crowds because they are trying to escape self-laceration and ambition by locating positives. What is unique about these groups is that people are willing to give up their understanding of reason and turn to pathology. Within crowds people seem to immerse themselves in the group, that man becomes unrecognizable. In the late nineteenth century, individuals began to resent the bourgeoisie class and associate themselves with mobs.
Jack is a well respected and feared leader on the island, and under his command the boys will do anything. When Ralph and his followers go to get back Piggy’s glasses, Jack tells the boys to capture Samneric. He says to his army “‘Grab them!’ No one moved. Jack shout[s] angrily ‘I said grab them!’
This is a main reason Jack is hated among the boys and Ralph is a more effective leader because the boys actually listen. " His mouth was tight and pale. He put back his hair very slowly..... He forced his feet to move until they carried him out onto the neck of the land" (Golding, 130). The boys go looking for the beast exploring parts of the island they have never been too, trusting in Ralph’s command.
