“He knelt among the shadows and felt his isolation bitterly. They were savages it was true; but they were human, and the ambushing fears of the deep night were coming on” (Golding 191). The conch is gone, and evil has taken over the island and over the boys in Jack’s tribe, who have become murderous toward Ralph, who is the good that contradicts their evil.

His good senses are replaced with chaos, disorder, and evil. With jacks evil actions the his savagery is really starting to show us that he is getting violent. Jacks use of hunting turns him into the most savage out of all the boys.

He capered toward Bill, and the mask was a thing on its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness.” (63-64). Jack’s actions after he puts on the mask foreshadow his savage ways later in the book. Being “liberated from shame and self-consciousness” signifies Jack being liberated from all aspects of civilization. In addition, the mask takes away all of his fears and enables Jack to kill the pig, when before he put on the mask, he could not. Throughout the novel, mainly in Chapter Nine, Jack and his group chant, “Kill the beast!

There are several reasons that there are not any approved treatments using embryonic stem cells.

Within four years he had terrible headaches which scientists now know were caused by tumors that developed from the stem cells that were injected.
The measles controversy started in 1998 after a fraudulent research paper in the medical journal was published. The paper contained studies stating colitis and autism is linked to the measles vaccine.
