Satisfactory Essays
When we attempt to change a civilization for our own benefit we can end up destroying ourselves in the process. Just like when a group of boys were stranded on a deserted island. They aimed to create a civilization among themselves. The conch,very important in the novel, was the the first rule formed on the island. The conch was required to be held by the speaker at the littluns meetings. The children affirmed that only one person holding the conch will be allowed to speak at the meeting. "Let him have the conch!" (35). Piggy shouted at the meeting when the boys believed about the beast. "We got to have rules and obey them" (42). The boys set up rules so everyone would be happy on the island, because they are part of their very own civilization.
