he's motivation was to keep everyone safe, and stick threw it till the end. Ralph not only is a hero, but truely the only optimistic person threw out the story. The other children of the island elect him as the leader of the island because of he took control and tried to bring order amunst the others. examples of ralphs attempts to bring order to the island include, the conch shell, piggies glasses, buliding huts, fire, and establishing roles for the other islanders. when the boys first arive on the island, Ralph finds a conch shell that he uses to not only bring order, but to gather everyone that survived together.
His leadership skills are seen by Ralph even though he isn't as old as Ralph and Jack. He is the first person to realise that "the beastie" is not a physical being/animal trying to make all the boys on the island suffer and have a miserable time. Simon shows his courage by his eagerness to make yet another journey to discover the beast's true self. It is necessary for him to become isolated in order to see things more clearly. Along with Piggy, unfortunately, he becomes a symbol of sacrifice when the boys tear him to pieces.
I do not like it, but I kind of understand it. Roger dropping a boulder on Piggy is not a surprising thing for this cruel boy to do, so I understand it even while I hate it. And when Jack orders his tribe to kill Ralph, I know Jack simply wants to eliminate any impediment to his absolute authority. What I find most appalling and terrifying is how quickly these proper boys who know how to follow rules were transformed into murdering savages. Piggy asks “What are we?
Spill his blood! Do him in!” (168). By becoming so carried away and building up such desire to kill, the boys mistake Simon for the beast and murder him instantly. Finally, the boys’ savagery is also portrayed in the murder of Piggy. Nobody was allowing Piggy the opportunity to speak his mind, disregarding any of his opinions.

Dove then decided he would teach Johnny a lesson so he reached to the back of the shelf for the cracked crucible and gave it to Johnny.

Johnny’s pride has benefited himself and others by helping him evolve into a better person. People are also not treated disrespectfully anymore due to his personality change.

Right there is a great example when thought about. Because, right after Jack said all the fun things they would do as a tribe many of the boys followed and joined him. This may be a prime example, but there are smaller examples that many don’t notice or turn a blind eye to. A smaller example is when events turn serious many will no longer listen to their leader. On page 142 the boys are all discussing how the fire and rescue is most important, but Samneric get the conch and together say, “That must be fun like Bill says-and he’s invited us- to a feast-meat-crackling-I could do with some meat.” This is a good example because it shows that people will try and get out of the serious stuff and instead do what they think is most important which to them at the time was meat.
When Jack kills, "madness [comes] into his eyes" (47). He starts acting like a barbarian and becomes wild and out of control. Jack overthrows Ralph and forces the boys to listen to himself using violence. Jack is an excellent example of Golding's depiction of human nature because of the extremity of wild behavior he reveals. Jack's nature is an over exaggerated illustration of how easily people are taken over by their own evil nature.
Exposure to violence can breed violence even in those who oppose it. In the story, Lord of the Flies that is exactly what happens to the characters. Ralph loses his composure, Jack turns into a blood crazed savage and Ralph becomes part of the demented hunters. The aggressive atmosphere that thrives on that heinous island conquered the good character of the boys. Jack was the first of the boys to show signs of aggression, then it turned on his hunters, and then it took control of Ralph.
After bringing everyone meat, “Jack had meant to leave [Piggy] in doubt [on whether he was getting meat or not], as an assertion of power.” (Golding 73). He wanted to show Piggy and the others around them that he has the authority over Piggy. Here, Jack was trying to increase his confidence level in order to show he could be a noble leader. When everyone was in a meeting, once Jack spoke, “the generosity [he spoke] brought a spatter of applause from the boys, so that Jack grinned at them, and then waved the conch for silence.” (Golding 43). The generosity mentioned was Jack’s generosity towards the boys to get them on his side.
