Piggy had the conch with him, still holding on the small portion of civilized society that still remained. When Roger rolled the rock down to get Ralph, he ended up killing Piggy, while also shattering the conch. The society had become completely corrupted, and the small piece of the society they had was gone. They met with the darkness and savagery that they always had within them. Without any rules to hold a society together, it will soon be corrupted and fall apart, leaving the people to become less human, and resorting to savagery.
Because Jack needed all of them to hunt a pig they let the fire out. Ralph and Piggy are indignant of Jack's carelessness. This drives Jack to violence and he breaks Piggy's specs. This evening for the first time the hunters play their game: one pretends to be the
114, a “game” gets a little out of hand, when Robert pretends to be the pig, and the others pretend to hunt him, but then they become more serious and actually hurt him. He is not killed, however. Eventually, Jack and some of the other boys split apart from Ralph and his “group.” Jack and his hunting band kill another pig savagely, reveling in its agony. The “peak of their decline” was when they killed Simon, calling him a beast, during the storm. Then Piggy is killed, and the conch is shattered, and that is when I consider them to be at the absolute lowest in society: nothing more than savages.
In return, Jack slaps Piggy and breaks one of the lenses on his glasses. Ralph warns Jack to stop this destructive behaviour. Jack starts roasting the pig he had killed earlier. Jack does not initially give Ralph any food, but he does finally get some. Ralph calls an assembly after the feast.
So he gathers a small group of irresponsible children and makes his own tribe. His tribe is called the Hunters. With all this power he eventually ends up taking and hurting Ralph's group for no reason. This happened in Chapter 10 on page 199 “the whole shelter exploded into light ...the fight rolled over him. 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.

He shows that he enjoys releasing the rock that killed Piggy showing that indeed he had developed into an evil monster under the chaotic environment.
In conjunction, the order and civilization on the island is falling apart. Jack begins to show more of his innate evil and savage ways after he leads his hunters in a hunt, completely disregarding the one job they were supposed to do, to keep the signal fire going. In result, Ralph and Piggy scold Jack. Jack then becomes angry and takes his anger out on Piggy. Golding writes, “Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy’s head.
By the end of the novel, Ralph becomes the prey of Jack's bloodthirsty group, and at the very end of the novel "Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of a true, wise friend called Piggy"(Golding 225) to show that he will never change, he has found the evil that lurks within all human beings. Jack on the other hand, became more of a savage person as the book progressed. For example, the first time he encounters a pig, he is unable to bring himself to kill it. But Jack soon becomes obsessed with hunting and devotes himself to the task, painting his face like a barbarian and giving himself over to bloodlust.

The boys kill Simon mistaking him for the “beast” then moments later Roger without any real motive kills Piggy in cold blood. Ralph runs away from the fight, running for his life, the use fire to smoke him out, he crawls out awaiting death until he looks up, where a naval officer is looking down at him and prevents the other boys murdering him Golding depicts Simon’s death quite graphically and it is what I believe to be the major turning point in the book. Once Simon is killed civilisation no longer exists as all the boys take part in his brutal death: “The beast struggled forward, broke the ring and fell over the steep edge of t... ... middle of paper ... ... happiness in the sand, it was where he first came on the island and felt the soft sand, where he first speculated that his dad, a navy officer would come save him. As he is on the sand we see that he wants to cry but he can’t cry. As he tries he notices a shadow like figure above him, he stands up and looks around for the savages, then looks up to see a naval officer who finds the island due to the huge fire in the Jungle.
He’s become a dictator, savage and brutal. Rules no longer apply to Jack because he’s forgotten the society he comes from. All he cares about now is killing Ralph to take revenge. In his mind, killing is a totally acceptable thing to do. Jack has lost all reason.
