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.
Jack constantly disobeys Ralph’s rules so he can go hunting to find food for himself. Instead of building shelter for all of the boys on the island, Jack insists on hunting to please himself and only himself. Jack also forms his own tribe in order to get away from all of Ralph’s rules and responsibilities. When Ralph tries to tell Jack to follow the rules, Jack responds by saying “Who cares about the rules?”.
Ralph and his friends were about to fight Jack and his tribe, when a boulder pushed by Roger came down and knocked Piggy off a cliff, to a gruesome death. After Piggy hit the ground and his body washed away into the sea, Jack jumped forward screaming at Ralph that he had no tribe and no power anymore. “‘I’m the 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).
It is shocking how quickly people can change from being good to becoming savages. In Lord of the Flies, a plane crashed and some schoolboys got stranded on an island where they have to survive on their own but end up failing and become savages. Chapter 9 concluded with having Simon go out to find the beast and discovers there is no beast; on his way back everybody is dancing in the rain and eating meat, but when they see this figure coming down, they think it’s the beast so they end up killing the beast, which was actually Simon. From the events above, they connect to the theme because fear got inside of them once they saw a dark figure and turned them into bloodthirsty savages.

The song of happy boys who killed their first pig, except this is a justified kill of an animal not a human life. In the novel Lord Of The Flies, written by William Golding published in 1954, is a novel set during World War II about a group of schoolboys that are deserted on an island. The boys start out to be happy and carefree with the thought of no adults around to be in charge of them. However, the boys decide to bring order into their society by having Ralph as the chief. Ralph is the primary protagonist and tries to get the boys to understand that the most important thing is to be rescued from the island.
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.
The third and most abrupt change is when Jack tries to kill Ralph. The old leader wants nothing but to sooth the chaos of the island. However, Jack has different intentions and wants Ralph to be executed. Ralph’s execution prolongs when Jack sets the forest on fire to try to flush Ralph out. However, this act catches a naval officer 's ship to check out the situation.
Throughout Lord of the Flies, more characters start to gradually lose these qualities which make us human. “The fire's the most important thing. Without the fire we can't be rescued. (Ralph would) like to put on war-paint and be a savage… (but) we must stay by the fire and make smoke.”
After a meal of pig, the boys in Jack’s new tribe begin to recite their chant, cheering for the blood of a pig. Unfortunately for Simon, he happens to join the group during the middle of the chant. At this point, the boys bloodthirstiness has reached a new level and they kill Simon. To the reader’s surprise, even Ralph and Piggy are involved in this murder after they get caught up in the night’s excitement. Following this murder, a member of Jack’s tribe, Roger decides to kill Piggy.
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’.
On the first hunt, the boys failed to slaughter a pig, but still know that, “Next time there would be no mercy.” Then, to assure the group had the idea even clearer, “[Jack] looked around fiercely, daring them to contradict” (P.31). The boys, Jack specifically, have a mutual understanding that sparing the pig was a setback for their ultimate survival. Shortly after hunting, and succeeding, the boys return with a pig shouting “‘Kill the pig. Cut her throat.
He thinks about what he 's going to write to Kiowa 's father, and how he shouldn 't mention the sewage field. Azar, of course, is cracking jokes about how Kiowa drowned in poop. Bowker tells him to shut up, but Azar, being Azar, just keeps making horrible puns. They still haven 't found the body.
He got upset with them because keeping a fire burning was more important than hunting for pigs. This was more important to their survival because the smoke from the fire was a signal so they could be rescued. Ralph was mad how they hunters weren’t able to keep the fire going when the ship was near since that was an opportunity to get off the island. Ralph believed that if the fire was still burning, the ship would see them and rescue them. “Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.”
In the Lord of the Flies, William Golding shows that we are evil and discriminatory. This is shown in the book with the murder of both Simon and Piggy and how the boys discriminate against piggy about his weight, glasses, and asthma. In addition to those examples, it is also shown throughout history with mass shootings and the holocaust. I believe that humans are evil because they murder and are discriminatory. William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies shows that humans are evil through murder.
