William Golding illustrates in Lord of the Flies that humanity needs to have the boundaries of society and civilization to prevent the evil inside us from surfacing. Despite laws and order, humans still have the capacity to exemplify evil. Golding 's experiences as a school teacher, and in the war helped him shape Lord of the Flies. In this novel, Ralph has the ongoing struggle of attempting to enforce rules and build a civilized community. He ultimately fails miserably and everyone, including himself, becomes taken over by their inner savage.
This is the fate and destiny of human being. We don’t have choice. Either make the world a little bit better or make the world a little bit worse and this is the choice. If one goes into society, a nausea and dark adult society, in order to survive or for any shameful reasons, then he puts the world becoming more disgusted and darker. If there is one who does not do any harms to other people and spends his entire life to fight the unfair and irrational things surrounding him, to take care of his family and friends, maybe when he past, there is no fame and no fortune, does his life change the world?
Therefore, man must live within the confines nature allows man to live in, meaning nature is the ruler of man. London also introduces the themes of instincts, primitivity, judgement, and foolishness. All these themes in the story are interconnected as they play into the central conflict. The fact that the man decides to ignore the advice of others in traveling in conditions he shouldn’t is not only a neglect of better judgement and instinct but shows the foolishness within the man as he believes he has the upper hand against the forces of nature. We also can see that in the story the dog is a symbol and representation of instinct.
Portrayed in the movie Into the Wild, Christopher McCandless was a free spirit he did what he want when he wanted. Ivan and Chris were completely different people one was a formalist and the other was a maverick, but in the end it didn 't matter how different they were because they found true happiness in death. Ivan constantly tried to conform to society and its laws. Ivan subconsciously wanted to be an individual but he constantly suppressed those urges to fit in. He wanted to follow the path that society lead him on.
Ralph, for example, displays his ego predominantly, focusing on rational solutions to the issues the boys generate while on the island. However, as Ralph’s power obtained through the role as chief steadily diminishes, his ego tends to be less exhibited in his behavior. When Ralph is first elected chief, his ego is patently shown throughout his personality, exhibiting logical thinking in order to promote discipline. He suggests rules, including how one must “hold [the conch] when he’s speaking” (33). The conch, a symbol for order, represents Ralph’s authority while on the island.
Yet, their solutions are small and bound for failure. Milton is trying to show the inevitability of failure when trying to control the earth. This side directly contrasts with the idea at the beginning of the poem that humans are meant to be the stewards of the earth, not just because no one else will do it, but also because it it very much needed. Milton’s contradicting sides become hard to apply to a grander scale because they so obviously say the opposite things. One identifies it as man’s destiny to control the Earth because it is meant to be controlled and is inherently bad when natural.
There is a distinct relationship between the narrator and his natural environment, however the narrator appears to admit that he personally feels a connection that whatever remains of civilization may not consider rational. Instead of stopping for the night in the village close by for relief he would rather stop near the woods, "stunning, dark, and profound." "Whose woods these are I think I know, his home is in the village however" (Frost, "Stopping By Woods"). In this statement we see that the narrator stops here despite the fact that he feels some kind of paranoia that he may be found. That is the reason he feels constrained to explain to himself that this will ideally not happen since the proprietor of the woods lives in the village.
He represented order, civilization, and even democracy. He was working on shelters, food, and ways of been rescued while the rest of the boys were playing, taking baths or just resting, that is why his power was secured at the beginning of the novel, but while the story unfolds, and the savage part of the boys started to appear, the power started as well to decline to Jack. This situation finally lead to the formation of the hunter by Jack and the move of every boy except Piggy to that group, letting Ralph alone (Samneric disagreed at the first
Transcendentalism is a controversial movement that was a protest to intellectualism and spirituality at the time. These ideals were outlined in David Thoreau 's Walden, which described his journey living in the forest, and what he learned from it. He believed that people should remove themselves from society to further their “journey” to become a better person, and not be so reliant on society. Despite his interesting topic, the message that he is trying to convey is dangerous. I do not believe his message is realistic, as he preaches about living off the land, and advises to not buy anything you don’t need or can’t make yourself, which would ruin society due to making it less reliant on each other.
There's no government quality of life but life is also the most important thing around. He define the state of nature as a product of human nature where “Life is nasty, brutish, solitary and short the war of all against all”. The violation of peoples one right, which in this case is life. According to Hobbes, in order to protect their lives people appoint a sovereign. The sovereign keeps the people safe but, removes almost unlimited power in exchange.
