That night when Kiowa got wasted, I sort of sank down into the sewage with him… Feels like I’m still deep shit.”(Page 150) Bowker is also intelligent and is well supported by his parents, but he did not see any meaning in getting a job or even going to school.

General Motor's decision to close 11 factories allowed the corporation to gain more money but put thousands out of work, devastating the workers and the towns they lived in. The corporations should think of how their decisions affect people. Although this move may provide Americans with cheaper jobs, it has added thousands more to the already high unemployment.

The boys aren’t mature enough to realize that they are stuck on an island, nobody knows where they are, and they are probably going to die there. All the boys other than Ralph, Piggy, and Simon are completely oblivious to the fact that they need to be rescued, or they will die.
