After Jack let the fire go out, Piggy reprimanded him leading to frustration in Jack; “This from Piggy, and the wails of agreement from some of the hunters, drove Jack to violence. The bolting look came into his blue eyes. He took a step, and able at last to hit someone, stuck his fist into Piggy’s stomach ” Jack could have hit anyone else but struck Piggy, showing his deep hatred for him. All Jack needed was the opportunity to kill Piggy, and he would have taken it just like when he punched him in the stomach.
The Savagery of Human Nature in William Golding's Lord of the Flies One of several significant incidents in this story is when the hunting group killed the first pig. This is a significant scene because it is where the hunters of the group release the savagery that has been covered up by the fact that they were civilized. It also is a significant event because it is the first time that the group of boys ignores the priorities set by their leader, Ralph. Ralph felt that keeping a signal fire to alert passing ships of their presence was more important than finding another source of food. Having his orders disobeyed meant that he was losing power.
Ralph, Piggy and Samneric refuse to join Jack’s tribe. Simon is brutally killed by the group of boys on island while Piggy was murdered by Roger. Jack’s tribe set the whole island on fire in order to make Ralph out of his hiding place; but smoke catches the attention of a novel officer and finally they are rescued. The boys are described as savage human beings that cannot uphold onto the rules and instructions given by their society. Golding illustrates that mankind is inherently evil; however rules and punishments keep him from his violent nature.

In order for someone to win, they must be the last one alive in the arena. (Insert details relating to topic) We can see the idea that we killing each other for food and/or survival makes us animals rather than human in the memoir Night by Elie Weisel wher the men were fighting all they could to get a crumb of bread and Elie touring through bodies to breath, current and historical events when Richard Parker killed his crew mate and the RUF group eating human corpses to intimidate their enemies, and personal observation and experiences where in Battle Royal and The Hunger Games where people were put in an isolated area to fight to the death. When we kill each other, it shows inhumanity towards ourselves when we as humans should work together and not cause conflict and fight or even kill one another.
The shelter collapsed with smothering finality., and anonymous shapes made there way to the dark.... His left hand dangled piggy's glasses.” so the hunters badly beat Ralph and his people, who do not even know why they were attacked, they would have gladly shared the fire with the other boys so they did not need to steal piggy's glasses to make fire. This proves the theme because raiding the group instead of asking the group for glasses to make a fire is crude nature the choice of choosing to destroy the camp is destructive nature
After one of the new groups hunts they cut off a sows head and put it on a spear, and stuck in the ground as an offering to the beast. Simon sees the dead man for what it really is and when he sees the pigs head it talks to him and tells him that his theory that the beast is actually just the boys fear of the unknown and it reveals itself to be the Lord of the Flies. When he goes to tell the other boys what he found out they mistake him for the beast and kill him out of fear. Jack's tribe realizes they cannot make cooking fires without Piggy's glasses so they ambush Ralph and the others in the night and steal Piggy's glasses. When Ralph, Piggy, Sam, and Eric go to speak with Jack's tribe to get Piggy's glasses back Ralph and Jack end up fighting, Sam and Eric get taken prisoner, and Roger kills Piggy.
Jack's wanting of meat turns into obvious bloodlust later on in the novel, for example he kills the mother pig without even thinking if it was wrong: "Kill the pig, cut her throat, bash her head in!". Jack's decapitation of the dead mother pig proves that he is no longer the Jack that could not kill the pig but a much more blood-thirsty one that only wants to kill and not be rescued. Although Jack is not satanic like Roger, he loses all sense of reason, he is nevertheless a killer. Jack tries his best to do what is best for the boys but h...

Everyone did realize that they killed Simon, but it only sent them into more of a craze.
His fundamental conflicts are that people are savage by nature, and are moved by urges to dominate over others. The natural darkness in humankind brings about the breakdown of civilization, as demonstrated by Jack. Jack’s loss of innocence to savagery articulates the beginning of the breakdown of civilization. His subsequent fall into ruthlessness is established when he first spots a pig. Thought his first instinct is to draw his knife, he is unable to continue because of “the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood”.
After reading the short story, it could be concluded that the author is in fact traumatized and his mental trauma is what leads to his actions. This illness is what blinds him to the seriousness of his evil actions. It could also be concluded that the narrator killed all the people he was talking about with the hitchhiker. The hitchhiker reminded him of his son, therefore restricted the narrator on killing him. Therefore answering the question on why his son left, his son must have seen that the hogs were squealing because the slop the father was feeding them was, in fact, the meat of the people he killed.
