Speech the most powerful weapon. William Golding aspired to write a piece of literature that would show the dark side of the human soul through his book “Lord of the Flies” a piece that takes you the reader into a world cut off from modernized world, what we see as a true civilized world. William Golding was a man who saw the horrors that humans where capable of through the advancement of science and the war engine itself, of human desires that to this day exist and in my belief will always exist.

Ellie Pace 11-11-15 Period 3A Summary of Milton in Lord of the Flies In the article Lord of the Flies: An analysis, by E. C. Bufkin, Golding’s book is suggested to use irony to portray defects of the human race and its origination from the Fall of Adam.

From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities. This not only has assisted me in the learning process, but also taught me assertiveness and confidence.

When Franklin D Roosevelt was in the presidential race with Herbert Hoover, he said something that has had an impact American citizens since 1932, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. Although some people believe he was a loiter and had some pretty bad policies as president, he had something going with this quote. While most presidents typically produce quotes that make you want to fear yourself into voting for them, FDR decided to lift the fear factor altogether. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the boys allow fear to consume them and take over their sense of judgement, much like FDR warned Americans of nearly 100 years ago. Fear can cause your mind to react in ways you have no control over.
