Over time, many have realized that people have the power to change others, however some believe that people cannot and will not change. One side of this argument is that though people will be the same their whole life, and never change. On the contrary, people have been changed by others over time and throughout history. It is a fact of life that people have the power to change others through their actions, perspectives, and ability to persuade their point of view.
In the novel, "Lord of the Flies," a group of British boys are left on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere. Throughout the novel, they have conflicts between civilization and savagery, good vs. evil, order vs. chaos, and reason vs. impulse. What would it be like if the boys were replaced by a group of girls? Would they behave the same way they did in the novel? I believe that the girls would act in the same behavior as the boys in all ways because, everyone is installed with evil inside them which is their natural instinct, also because in life there is always a power struggle in all manners, and the outcome with the girls would be similar-since both sexes would plan on getting rescued.

Of course, the night before I could not sleep. I lay awake dreaming about how my first day at John Paul II will go. How will it be meeting new people and seeing old friends from last year? Will high school be hard? Will I get lost? I kept thinking about the unknown and worst possible outcomes. My first day of high school was unexpected.
Lord of the Flies is a book that takes place during World War II, and is about a group of English school boys who crashed in a plane on an island without any adult survivors. Throughout the story, the boys struggle to keep a mindset based on rescue and survival, and instead think more about hunting and having fun, while avoiding any responsibility. During this, the boys also struggle with fear of a "beastie" - what is the beast? To the author, the beast began as war, then it became the externalized form of the boys' fear, and ended as savagery.
Could civilization live a normal and stable life, without any rules and orders to obey? Could you picture, New York City, with no laws to follow and everyone doing as they please? Just imagine the disasters that we will experience. In the novel, Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, we see how each individual character reacts differently to the exposure of complete freedom from an organized society. Also, awe see how this separation from a structural society causes chaos among all these different characters.
In the story “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding, he shows how the boys lost all innocence and civilization. The boys went from having innocent child minds to taking lives of other people, acting savage, and losing all civilization due to problems on the island. The boys had forgotten where they came from and became savage in order to survive; it was the need of survival that caused the loss of innocence among the boys.
Twelve year old boys are stranded on an island with a sense of survival, but these young boys become uncivilized and turn into “savages”. They say that they cannot control their savage ways, I disagree with that statement. I think the boys could have some control is some situations.Ralph and Jack separated as two different leaders. Ralph wanted to get saved and build a fire, while Jack has been on the other side of the island, hunting and acting wild. The group of boys decided to join Jack’s side because he was a fun leader and traveled to his side. Jack never saw the island as a threat, he wanted to have fun and be wild. He would stand tall and saw proudly in the group, “this is our island. It's a good island. Until grownups come
There was much destruction in the wake of the first World War. Millions of people had been killed or disablitated by this devastating war. Housing and whole towns were left in ruin with nothing more then rumble to mark where they had been. Millions of people were starving in German as a result of the Hunger Blockade. Needless to say it was time for peace but the ending of World War I wasn't all that peaceful as was hoped.
Money is something everyone is pursuing and some people exhaust themselves to get it. People work countless hours in jobs they hate, waking up everyday going to their same cubicle working from 9 to 5 and going home feeling miserable and stressed. It’s not about finding a job that makes you a lot of money, it's about doing something that makes you feel good about your work and passionate about what you do. Finding a job that is not only meaningful to you but also helping someone else, nothing will make you feel better than that. Having a job that is bettering someone else’s life and bettering your own financially is the best job you can have.
Imagine being stranded on an island, in a dystopian world, surrounded by the vast and seemingly endless ocean, with little to no hope of escape. This is the very world where William Golding’s critically acclaimed novel “Lord of the Flies” is set. I have recently been informed about a ‘survival expo’ that you are organising and I would like to share with you a book that I consider to be of exceptional quality, and that I also believe to almost indefinitely meet the criteria required for your exposition. The book exposes its readers to various controversial themes related to survival and the numerous flaws that constitute human nature. It also contains the content that avid readers of survival novels will share an appreciation for due to the
I have always seemed to come across books that I don’t necessarily agree with the decisions of the characters. Whether it is in a book of my choice, or a book that is assigned to me, I usually end up questioning all my life’s decisions. Or more often than not, I begin to pick apart each character, and try to look at situations from their perspective. However, I have yet to find a character that I completely agree with their all of their choices. Especially, in the book, Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, I am constantly disagreeing with each character’s reactions. So, by the end, all chaos broke loose, but it could’ve been prevented through less radical actions.
