Simon is a character who doesn't say much, but when he does speak, it is to reveal some sort of truth and his words are sometimes prophetic. Often times, Simon is at a loss for words or has a lack of confidence when he wants to speak to a large group of his peers: "Simon became inarticulate in his effort to express mankind's essential illness" (89). In this line, Simon is trying to say that the beast is something dark within the boys themselves, which is "mankind's essential illness", or evil nature. He is the
It is like our manhood is consumed by these ranks and by people who still remind us that we are not fit for society and that we do not deserve to be men just because we do things that are not considered to be manly enough. The brilliant minds of other men will change slowly, people will start to do things or start acting in a different way than men want others too. The problem is that men are afraid of other men because they think that they will reflect their image of manhood and how a man should act. They are afraid that these people who are homosexual or those who look and act like a women will ruin the image of manhood. In order to restore their image as men, they start to mock these people, have conflicts with them, bully them until they start to feel desperate in life, which will lead them to hurting themselves or commit suicide because they think they are wrong and should not even

In Poisonwood Bible and Things Fall Apart, the spearheading male characters succumb to doubts of their own validity despite being initially established as the ones with the most power. The urge to exercise this inherent power reflects an instability within the minds of the owners, creating a sort of deterrence so that outsiders don’t examine closer. If they do, they see brokenness, doubt, fear...all things that a man in power should not feel and should not have the right to feel. These perpetrators of cruelty show their weakness through their actions, as their character is not strong enough to be convincing based on values alone, and slowly chip away at them despite having the intentions of doing the opposite. Those on the receiving end, however, are the ones who benefit in the end, as they become aware of one’s true personality and realize that there is more possibility outside of the abuse.

That means that no one is more important, intelligent, and so on than their brothers and by being so it is an evil in the world.
