This society though, slowly spirals into disorder and eventually chaos. The main characters, Ralph and Jack, constantly contradict each other and fight for the loyalty of the younger boys and power. The author, William Golding, created this book to portray the potential evil in every human. These boys in particular are not inherently wicked but most of them do get caught up in the fantasy of having ultimate control which leads to the boys being unable to live amongst one another. The boys immaturity of living in the fantasy results in frivolous behavior throughout the start of the book.
Summary 5 In the evening, Ralph blows the conch to call a meeting to discuss what the boys have and have not accomplished. Ralph discusses how the boys need to follow the conch rules and many other things like not building shelters, not keeping the signal fire going, and not using the indicated toilet spots. In addition, he talks about how the signal fire is very important since that is the only way the boys can return home. The littluns also talk about their nightmares about the beast that is on the island. However, Ralph and Jack try to make them believe that there are no monsters.
Piggy no doubt was the smartest and had the best ideas, but he would keep his ideas to himself in fear that if he ever said anything he would get hit or made fun of. On page 93 we read, “I’m scared of him,’ said Piggy, ‘and that’s why I know him. If you’re scared of someone you hate him but you can’t stop thinking about him...I tell you what. He hates you too, Ralph-’” Piggy expresses his fear for Jack. Continuing on page 93, “He can’t hurt [Ralph]: but if you stand out of the way he’d hurt the next thing.
The boys misconstrue Simon’s message to mean that there is a physical beast as well, demonstrating that they cannot even begin to comprehend that they might be at the very heart of the issue. Yet it is clear to Simon that the beast they face is not a physical entity, as he realizes that the traits of the creature do not add up. Instead, he images “a human at once heroic and sick,” as he understands that the nature of the beast stems from human nature itself. Kind-hearted Simon believes that humanity truly does have the capacity for good, just as it has the capacity for evil. The issue is, humans are naturally sick with inherent sin, which pulls them to evil without considering the repercutions.
One night when Sam and Eric are on watch they see something fall down from the sky, they think its some kind of beast. When Jack and Ralph go find out what it is they think it is some kind of monkey.

The chop of the head and put it on a stick, as sacrifice for the beastie.
Lord of the Flies only views that the impact of the desire to gain authority will only result negatively; however, A Long Way Gone offers a different approach by altering the effects positively. Following Piggy’s death, Jack’s reaction and actions show a clear intention to rid of Ralph’s power completely in order to grant himself the highest position over the boys by means of pretending that he was the cause of Roger’s actions and afterwards, launching a spear directly at Ralph. Ishmael Beah’s lucid illustration that expressed his emotions toward the enemy rebel forces resemble that of Golding’s claim as he ridicules the rebels’ torturous deaths. Further on in the memoir, after experiencing the process of being forgiven and learning how to forgive, Beah counteracts this claim by providing an example of his determination to use his wanting to become chosen in the UN interview for a favorable outcome. In the two pieces of work, harming another seems to be the outcome from the hunger for power, but Golding’s perspective believes that the repercussion will only remain evil, while Beah implies that the conclusion can be changed in such a way that it becomes positive.
