Hate and violence both tend to spread like a disease. When hatred is introduced to an individual, he/she often cannot see past this burning motive - they yearn for revenge. Hatred and violence become a means of getting what someone wants.

From the story, it is clear that the conch symbolizes order among the boys because the conch is what they use to call meetings, the fire represents their emotions of whether they are going to get off of the island or not because they build one in hope of getting rescued, and the title, The Lord of the flies, symbolizes their fear controlling them because they start to think without reason and play violent “games” out of fear of the beast. Some of the most important symbols in the story are the conch, the fire, and the title of the book. The first symbol is the conch that represents the order among the boys. One example that shows that

By doing this, one will become aware of the critiques and affirmations set forth by this film.

As part of it, there are men who abuse their women in different ways, who can be categorized as "Pit-bulls" or "Cobras" by different features. In this essay I will present differences and similarities between the two types of abusive men.
