Everyone always obeyed his rules because they were very terrified of him. He carried a lot of control on the island. When Ralph and Piggy tried to compromise with Jack, no one would listen. They did not want to pay attention. Roger pushed a rock on Piggy as he died with the conch broke into millions of pieces and his body washed into the ocean.
After Roger pushes Piggy down the mountain knocking Piggy to his death, Jack steps forward and begins “screaming wildly” and warns Ralph that if he doesn’t join his tribe, that “that’s what [he’ll] get”. Unlike the previous deaths, rather than the boys being in denial over the unintentional killings, Jack and his tribe celebrate this death. When Jack rudely interrupts the silence with screams, he uses Piggy’s death as a lesson for Ralph, threatening him to obey him, proving that he has become cold-hearted and would do
Ralph was upset because the fire had gone out. “There was lashings of blood,” said Jack, laughing and shuddering, you should have seen it!”(69) This quote is an example of how the boys were violent throughout the book, and became progressively more deranged.

Once he started hunting pigs, Jack become overly preoccupy during hunting that Jack thought of the idea that the kids should wear face paint of the pigs blood. When the kids had done the face painting with him, Jack became more powerful with hunting pigs for food that it turned everyone against Ralph. So Jack had started his own tribe with all the boys. When Jack had made the tribe, he said to the boys before hunting, “Kill the beast!
Even though he has been selected as chief of the island, his voice was gradually becoming useless. The followers fancied an achiever like Jack, not just a speaker. Ralph's most important objective was to go gome, but the boys were too caught up killing pigs to realize that the fire had been left uncared for. Infuriated that the chances of being rescued vanished, the leader demands an explanation for the lack of responsibility. But at that instant, Ralph realizes his leadership lacks contron as he "...watched them envious and resentful" (Golding, 79).

Ralph is introduced as an optimistic boy. However, Ralph gradually matures by understanding the difficulties of surviving on a deserted island, labeling Simon’s death as murder, and comprehending his loss of innocence.

In this situation, Ralph has just
