He could have explained why he chose to do what he did, instead of letting the family suffer in ignorance about his future. Like Janis Joplin indicates by singing: “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose”, freedom is only achieved when you are alone and penniless.

The boy symbolized safety for the group which they ignored showing stupidity and arrogance among the group since they slowly process what to do to get off the island. Lord of the Flies by William Golding Chapter 3 “Huts on the Beach” 1. “Meetings. don’t we love meetings? Every day.
The boys had no authority on the island, and therefore had no direction and would act differently because they won’t get in trouble for their actions. In addition, they had been disconnected from everything about a civil society. On the island, they only had memories of a civil society, and therefore, they quickly forgot how to act and what to do. Moreover, there were benefits for the boys to be uncivil as they were able to get meat and allowed to have fun with little work. Through and through, the environment around the boy's caused them to change how they acted and what they
As far as I am concerned being selfish is what makes you fit to survive. You need to look out for yourself before others. My self serving by jumping to the other boat results in my survival. Therefore the broken boat is no longer my problem.
In this town there was no respect for that which led the townspeople to close themselves off to anything that was not taught in the bible. It led Reverend Brown to lead the townspeople inadequately. The townspeople were relying on Reverend Brown to lead them and that is not wrong of them but the only problem here was that they did not know how to think for themselves. They were so closed minded to new ideas that everything outside the doctrine was wrong.

Candy has had that dog for a long time, but Carlson doesn't consider that. He just wants to shoot the dog, because it's very old, and can't eat much.

Suzanne doesn’t understand these social cues, and therefore does not respond the way she should. She is in the mental state of a child, and therefore acts like a child. This aspect is a reasonable portrayal of her mental disability.
They try to teach him morals and how to pray before meals, but Huck wants none of this. “Miss Watson she kept pecking at me, and it got tiresome and lonesome.” (p. 3). He seems disrespectful and ungrateful for the help and takes off. He is not inasmuch as mean to them, however, he doesn’t appreciate their willingness to help him.
Set on an island that knows no human voices, the isolation Tom and Isabel face on Janus Rock causes them to lose their sense of morality and to make careless and socially-incorrect decisions. When they secretly decide to keep the abandoned baby, Tom is faced with a sudden unease, however the "isolation lulls him with the music of the lie". This metaphor signifies the initial effect of isolation on Tom's moral compass, as he begins to conceal the truth, ignoring moral obligation. Stedman uses another metaphor to describe the detachment of the island and refers to it as a place that "dangles off the edge of the cloth like a loose button", in which you can "live any story you want to tell yourself, and no one will say you're wrong". Consequently
This terrible abuse happens often in these smaller zoos. The handlers aren’t actually educated in the way they should with how to treat them. People aren’t doing anything about it because they decide they just want to go and have fun watching them and then leave with no after thought. Do these creatures deserve this kind of manhandling and suffering in their life with no consequences for the humans that commit this crime? This kind of abuse also happens in the way that they don’t get treatment with their health, whether it’ a wound, infection or if they are underweight.

While Levi felt that, his friend gave him a lesson which is to hang on to their humanity as much as they can and being clean is one way. Levi doesn’t agree to this and he doesn’t want to be controlled by someone. He has no choice right now. Either he follows the rules or he may be killed.

Humans have a way of dehumanize people who are different without even knowing it they can just casually calling people names or make fun of their physical appearance. While, Piggy and Ralph were walking and talking Ralph wanted to know what Piggy's name was. Piggy did not want to tell Ralph his name because he said he doesn't want to “ be called what they used to call in school” (11). The fact that Piggy does not want to tell us his name is because they have already belittle him by his physical appearance. After, that accident happened Ralph wanted Piggy to get the name of the rest of the guys that were on the island.
