In that desperate situation, a boy named Jack suggested all the other boys to go hunt animals for food for survival purpose. However, another boy who was supposed to be their leader, Ralph, rejected his idea and because of that, Jack was so angry and decided to break their law that was agreed by everyone together before. As the anger emotion had controlled Jack, he started to feel rage towards Ralph. This is because Ralph was the leader, so, most of the boys were on Ralph side. He then created his own troops and started hunting for animals.
His good senses are replaced with chaos, disorder, and evil. With jacks evil actions the his savagery is really starting to show us that he is getting violent. Jacks use of hunting turns him into the most savage out of all the boys. Everything he did after this point made him into the young savage that he was in the end of the book. “His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink.” This quotation, also from Chapter 4, explores Jack’s mental state in the aftermath of killing his first pig, another milestone in the boys’ decline into savage behavior.
This is a key moment because the conflict between Ralph and Jack has grown from audible disputes, to a physical divide between civilization and savagery of the boys. “Later in the novel, he even breaks away from Ralph’s newly formed society, forming his own tribe of hunters.” (Neighbors,1) This split shows the growing tension between the boys because they are now also splitting the other boys between the two sides.

This connects to the theme because it shows how the author uses figurative language to illustrate the causes of the boys’ fear, how they respond to it, and how they feel in the heat of the
Jack uses fear and manipulation to gain power over the rest of the group. "Ralph 's right of course. There isn 't a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we 'd hunt it and kill it. We 're going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody.
Initially a pure of heart child is chose in Ralph but this eventually changes when Jack decides to start his own tribe. This leads to the boys leaving Ralph for the preferable leader: Jack, who’s violence and intimidation entices the boys to join him. The boys live in constant fear of a beast that Jack also uses as a tool to garner support. William Golding shows that humans follow corrupt leaders because they provide protection, exude confidence and manipulate effectively.

In this essay, we will adventure off into his young life and some appearances he has made, including Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. According to Disney, the Big Bad Wolf was taught to be bad by growing up with the stereotypes saying that all wolves must be bad. A few appearances have shown that the Big Bad Wolf has three sons of his own and is repeating what he was taught.
First, a boy is gruesomely murdered out of fear that he is a beast. Next, another boy is killed while trying to keep the island civilized so that the boys may soon become rescued.
