In “The Lord of the Flies”, English schoolboys in the midst of an atomic war crash land on an island in the Pacific. On this island, they find the “beast”; a horrid creature of the night that strikes fear into them. At first glance, we see that it isn’t real. Moreover, it is a manifestation of their fear. It’s true meaning, nonetheless, is a rabbit hole that goes much, much deeper.
The first example of these fights is between the greasers and the Socs. Both classes disliked each other, just because of prejudice. The greasers assumed that all Socs were condescending, egocentric, and gaudy, and all the Socs identified the greasers as dangerous hoods. Therefore, lots of Socs would jump the greasers and vice versa. The next example of prejudice and hate is the fact that Ponyboy hates all guys with green eyes (page 1, chapter 1) only because he associates green eyes with Socs.
Everybody is frightened by something. From pig heads impaled on a stick to a dead parachutist falling from the sky, in the world of Lord of the Flies, there are numerous reasons for which one should be scared. In the story, a group of English schoolboys find themselves stranded on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The children have no parents to protect them from the mysterious animal of a “beast” that is haunting them. The “beast” is a legacy that is abundant in changing throughout Lord of the Flies.
The characters in William Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies, illustrate a loss of morality that comes with the growth of tribalism. The book in question, Lord of the Flies, is about a group of boys who are the only survivors of a plane-crash on an uninhabited island, and how they survive on their own. The growth of tribalism was evident in the increasing separation between the boys and the eventual formation of two conflicting groups, and the loss of morality was illustrated by the boys’ lack of respect for human life. Instead of progressing through Kohlberg’s stages of moral development, we see the boys regress through the stages. The spark that created intense tribalism occurred at the start of the novel when Ralph was voted chief over
In the book of Lord Of The Flies by William Golding, there are boys that are stranded on an island because of a plane crash. Although the boys attempted to copy their british government they failed. Because of the children's young age, the society that they established is doomed to fail because children can not maintain a society based on authority and interpersonal respect. This is demonstrated throughout the book by the varies of death, the breaking of the conch shell, and the theft of glasses. In the Lord of The Flies there are two significant deaths that demonstrates that children do not understand the value of life.
A psychology professor Phillip Zimbardo once explained "people are seduced into evil by dehumanizing and labeling others." I believe this is true labeling and dehumanizing others can make it particularly easy to forget all of your moral codes amd forget about the goodness inside you.

The boys are left without adults so one boy named Ralph steps up to power and leads them all. There is a struggle for power when a boy named Jack seeks to be leader, but he has different ways of leading then Ralph.
People rarely in their childhood are forced to make decisions or to worry about things you can't control. Individuals never realize what they had until it’s gone. Lord of the Flies is about the crash landing of a plane containing a group of British children and a power struggle arises.
