Can we stop the evil within mankind?
People always hear about girls getting raped, murdered and kidnapped. The boys in Lord of the Flies by William Golding do practically the same thing by showing how evil man kind can be. In William Golding’s book, Lord of the Flies, a group of young British school boys have crash-landed on an uncharted island without parent authority. They are finding it harder to control the evil that is coming out of them. The boys fall apart politically, psychologically, and spirituality by wanting everything but the right thing (to be civil and respectful boys).
When setting up a society that is politically stable, which means people need to be able to communicate with others without violence. “‘We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting. They’ll come when they hear us’” (p.16). When Piggy says to blow the conch and the boys will come when they hear it, he means that the boys will come together and have a controlled society by having an assembly. This passage shows that the society is being created because they’re using the conch to call the boys into an assembly. However over time the boy’s politically just fall apart, “ The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee, the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist” (p.181). When Golding says that the conch exploded and couldn’t be repaired so it “died” and the two things for a controlled society, are destroyed. This passage shows the end of society because the linking connections to civilization are destroyed. It also shows how savage the boys have become because they killed one of their own. As the reader may see that getting a balanced political society is quite hard but the boys must create one before moving on to get other parts balanced on the island.
When people have a political stable environment they need to have a psychotically stable environment next, which means have people work on your basic needs of life food, water, shelter again without any violence and they also need to balance all three psychological aspects Id, Ego and Super ego. “‘They could be the army’ ‘or hunters’” (p.23). When Ralph suggests that the choir boys should be the ones to kill for food, he means that since they are already a group that likes each other they should be hunting. This passage shows psychological balance because the boys are trying to find a safety net and some one to find/get the things the boys need to survive. Overtime, however the boys soon fell apart and disliked each other. “Viciously with full intention he hurled his spear at Ralph” (p.181). When Golding says that Jack threw his spear at Ralph he means that it is the end of sanity because Jack is taking the other boys and starting a manhunt against Ralph. This passage also shows devotion to Id because, Jack and the others are becoming savage by killing Piggy and isolating Ralph to complete the task so he is weak and easy...
