He is a control freak with poor people skills. But he also had another side most of the senior management does not know about and the subordinates who work with him know very well. He is very well behaved in the proximity of the senior management. Some of the associates bluntly say they do not work with Chip. He did not appreciate their hard work and constantly criticize and try to bring perfection out of the work through ruthless means.
Democracy is appealing to the masses because it allows everyone’s voice to be heard in any situation and a solution is often reached that appeases a majority of the people. Based on this logic, most individuals argue that Ralph is the superior leader because he takes into account the other children’s opinions and makes a decision based off of the discussions. However, these individuals overlook the boys’ true situation; they are children and cannot possibly be expected to understand the severity of the situation. Therefore, their youthful nature prohibits their ability to make wise choices in a democratic society. In an environment with a lack of structured government involved in a chaotic situation, the most efficient leadership approach would be an autarch that enforces a tyrannical regime.
In the modern world, he is the equivalent of an adviser to the prime minister. Knowing that he himself is not popular, he still votes for Ralph, because he is on better terms with him than with Jack. The ideas Piggy comes out with are sensible, ‘we oughta have a fire’ He has power in that although he is not the front man, his ideas are still being put forward and acted upon. Jack, however, is to begin with, practically as unpopular as Piggy. Jack is introduced as Ralphs rival for power.
Jack, the antagonist, is a likable character because he has the ability to sing and lead his people, but some of the dislikable part about him is that he will use whatever trick necessary in order to get what he wants. Hitler and Jack are similar; they are both bold, productive and mean that make them true and epic fighters. Without a myriad amount of boldness, people would not be making big contribution to the world. In the beginning of Lord of the Flies, all the characters decide to stick together and do everything together. After a while, Jack feels that Ralph is not a good leader and he should take over the leadership of the people on the island.
Lastly, I think Ralph had the best idea about the beast. He convinced himself that there is no beast, but is not sure. He calls meetings to talk about it and find solutions. He explains to the other people on their level; he says that he too, is scared. This is the best way to go because instead of becoming slaves of fear, he tries to help the boys resolve their problem.
Another myth he busted was of him having the title of being a leader. In all actuality, his followers are just as much leaders as he is. He encourages creative thinking and is more of a supporter of new ideas than a creator of them. Also, just because he is a leader does not mean that coercion, manipulation has to take place in order for duties to be executed. He is a very relaxed and laid back individual who does not have regular board meetings or a huge corporation whereas many organizations do.
Dove 1 What would happen to you if you were stranded on an island with no conveniences, no supervision, with a beast that haunts you? In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, a group of young boys from a British boarding school plane crash on an island with no adult supervision and are forced to fend for themselves. Lord of the Flies illustrates that people without the influence of society return back to their primitive nature through characters, symbols, and conflict. First, Golding proves the theme that innocence will be lost when true human nature shows itself through characters. In the beginning of the novel, Ralph is logical and all about being rescued.
“...[He] realized with surprise that he did not really expect to meet the beast and didn’t know what he would do about it if he did” (Golding 105). Ralph is skeptical-yes but he still knew that there was a possibility of the beast being inside the cliff. Although he is afraid and doesn’t know what to do about the beast, he knows that being brave and going into the cliff would give the boys a piece of mind, and that is all the reason he needs. Aside from being brave, Ralph shows excellent leadership by caring for everyone on the island. From the beginning, Ralph makes it clear that the most important thing to do on the island,
For Okonkwo, however, any kind of softness and tenderness was a sign of weakness. Throughout the novel we are shown men with a more mature understanding of masculinity, but Okonkwo's ignorance often disallows him to think thoroughly of his actions. At other times; however, Okonkwo's strength was all he had and was the primary factor that controlled his behavior. He could not accept the fact that in a colonized society he would be an average person, rather than a distinguished and powerful male. Okonkwo was one of the strongest and most respected men in his society.
Throughout the majority of the novel it is obvious to see that Ralph is not the rightful leader, and that Jack should be the leader as he has a strong sense of control over the island but does not have the same agenda when it comes to being rescued as he does not see the importance in the fire, whereas Ralph does, “You let the fire out.” This shows Ralph to understand that to escape from the island the boys need to create a signal fire for other ships. Jack is the apparent rightful leader, but the one that shows the intelligence and is the main reason to why Ralph became chief is Piggy, as from the start he understands the severity of the situation “We may stay here till we die.” Piggy’s intelligence is shown through the
