When he tries to tell the others of this truth, however, he is killed, much like Christ was trying to bring salvation to the ignorant. Simon being there gives us hope; the truth is available to those who seek it. In the book, Jack and his hunters become so evil that they end up killing two boys while on the island. Man’s tendencies towards evil in The Lord of the Flies are also compared to the book of Genesis in the Bible. Nature, beauty, and childhood can all be corrupted by the darkness within humankind.
The downfall of society is scene as the downfall of the society’s institutions and the society’s humane ways. The cause of these is the murder of Ill, which is driven by the fickleness of the human mind caused by the need of money. The illusion of money drove the townsmen’s fickleness of their minds for killing Ill, but the notion of group work blinded the townsmen’s humane ways. This final judgment scene also shows Ill’s acceptance of responsibility of his actions.

And then almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy, Mr. Chiu contaminates food and eventually spreads Hepatitis, which indeed earns him the title of “saboteur”, or at least the implication that he turned into what the police initially called him. The world around Mr. Chiu is now directly affected by his impromptu attempt at getting revenge, a result of the police not allowing him aid for when he was becoming sick. The stories ending is very grim, and shocked me when I read it; however, I feel that it was a proper ending, as it paints the most realistic picture. Mr. Chiu is implied to most likely want revenge on the police alone; collateral damage like all the civilians who contracted hepatitis at the end of the story was probably not his goal, after all, he showed no anger towards the public. It was the police alone who got him into this situation.
The film is suitable as a focal point for discussing evil because the genocide that the film is based has been widely condemned as a result of its wicked aspects.

With the desire to do what is morally right in the society, Paul risks his life to hide close to 1000 Tutsis in his hotel. He has to bribe the local Hutu militia leaders to protect the Tutsis, including his wife and family.
