Ralph is a better leader because he thinks about each of the boys and does his best to get them of the island. Ralph is a better leader because he takes all of the boys into consideration. When some of the boys were not found Ralph repeatedly asked about their whereabouts: “‘Where’s everybody?’ Piggy sat up. ‘P’raps they’re lying in the shelter .’ ‘Where’s Samneric? ‘And Bill?”(212).
The conch played a major role in keeping uniformity as everybody obeyed the conch. Whenever the conch was blown, all the boys left what they were doing and gathered where the conch was. This improved their communication which is very necessary for survival. Later on, Ralph, the leader, realizes a new problem with communication. He did not appreciate when all the boys spoke at once.
Whitewashing turned into a game for the neighborhood boys. In the beginning, Tom’s mindset was annoyed because he was bounded by work, when he would rather do something adventurous.

For example, in the text it say, “ Soon the free boys would come tripping
The paradox is that in terms of age, Kantorek should be wiser; however, since he is the one who sent them to war, his students have become smarter than him. As soldiers, they learned how to be pragmatic in their approach to life. For instance, Kemmerich is near death and Müller already intends to acquire his boots the moment he dies. Paul knows that pining over a struggling peer’s boots is unethical, yet “[they] have lost all sense of other considerations, because they are artificial. Only the facts are real and important for [them].
At the beginning of this movie, Todd was just the new kid who wanted nothing more than to just blend in and make good grades. However, Mr. Keating takes a special interest in Todd to help him discover who he is and what he stands for. Throughout the film, Todd comes out of his shell, allowing the viewers to see and relate to who he really is. However, it is not until the very last scene, that Todd completely denounces society’s rules in front of the headmaster. He disregards all punishment and repercussions that might occur in order to figuratively and literally stand up for what is right, which in this case is Mr. Keating.
He announced in a few moments. “I can make you two guys do anything i want.” By the boys leaving him out and making him feel upset, he realized he has control of what he does. He noticed not to let the others make him feel bad about himself. The two themes are significant because they both have a really great lesson to it, although they are very different. While “ HE-y , Come on Ou-t” has a lesson to never doubt yourself, “ A game of Catch’ has a theme of “ ALways include
He can hold it when he's speaking.’” (Golding 36), which gives everybody a chance to voice themselves and support Ralph voluntarily. This strategy of gradually building a positive reputation prior to giving orders to the boys highlights Ralph’s ability to gain authority, whilst acknowledging that he is not superior to any of the boys. This is in comparison to Jack, who falls prey to the excitement of proving his hunting capabilities to the boys, using it as an excuse to lead the boys, which essentially serves as the cause of the chaos the island falls into. He eventually even destroys the conch, symbolizing his role as a catalyst in the loss of democracy, and thus
His leadership is embraced by the boys, even Piggy and Ralph, who opposed his cruel and unusual leadership were “eager to take a place in this demented, but partly secure society.“ (pg.167). By feeding into the primitive nature of his followers
In William Golding’s “The Lord of the Flies” the creation of evil and fear is demonstrated through the actions of young boys who care more about fun and power then they do about logic and humanity. In conclusion Jack used fear to control the other boys and used evil to have fun and keep the control. William Golding used Machiavelli’s beliefs to showcase Jack's love for power and his unwillingness to give it up. Even Ralph chose evil and fun over Simon’s life, which shows that evil is in
Jack creates the idea of the beast and provides just enough evidence of its existence in order for the boys to follow him blindly. They rely upon him for information about the beast, and in doing so, they start to believe everything he says. The boys view him as the solution to the problem. Jack is jealous of ralph getting to be the leader when he’s the oldest, so jack gets the boys to turn on ralph and been in his tribe. This can be seen throughout the story, The Lord of the
Even though it seems like a good idea to fill kids up with sayings like ‘Everyone 's a winner!’ because that is inaccurate it will affect them now and as they transition into adults. Body Participation trophies seem like a great motivator at first, but it will start to wear off. Kids are smart and later as the season goes on, children start to care less about trying because they know they will be rewarded anyways. Not only do they underachieve, but their passion, competition, and desire for victory is lost because, why bother if everyone a trophy? Even though the participation trophies do help with participation, that is all it does.
Ralph, Jack, and “The Littluns”: The Game Changers As soon as Ralph blew the conch, gathering the boys around him, they decided to keep order by establishing a system in the hopes of having a chance to be rescued. A power struggle between Ralph and Jack had split the votes, but in the end, Ralph was crowned as chief. This society seemed as though it was solid under Ralph’s genuine leadership, but with differing opinions and views of what was really important, this society treaded towards rough waters. The author made a point to the reader that each character had a specific job in helping the civilization: Jack was the power hungry hunter, Ralph was the motivated leader, and the “Littluns” was the lower class with the biggest population. Many boys followed the peculiar noise through the island and gathered around Ralph.

I don’t mind, honestly.” Who is a resident of the island where the boys’ plane crashed
However, is there such a thing as overly passionate? We all know that one coach who is a always riled up and energetic when he is coaching his team. That in itself is not a problem at all. It becomes a problem when the coach starts trying to live his dreams through his students. Some students are just playing for fun and the experience, and coaches have to learn how to deal with that!
