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.

The only two who kept by each other’s side throughout the whole novel was Ralph and Piggy. “We musn't let anything happen to Piggy, must we?” (Golding page 106). The other boys didn’t care to stay with who was going to help them get rescued, they only wanted to enjoy themselves and hunt. Piggy and Ralph slowly start to realize what Jack is actually about, they get really frustrated and their plan to get rescued was going downhill. “You're a beast and a swine and a bloody, bloody thief!” (Golding page 163).
Piggy was Ralph to blow the conch and call a meeting but ralph was scared that no one would come and say that he is going to relinquish leadership of the group. This shows that he is a failure as a leader because he has no authority over no one and a leader without any authority is no leader at all. Furthermore he does something that he said was a waste of time he goes hunting and manages to hit a boar and gets excited and wants everyone to know. Ralph is showing us that he is a failure by doing something that he wouldn’t have done in chapter 1-4. Then Ralph gets depressed again and needs piggy to cheer him up with a good idea that might help them get rescued.
In chapter 3 when ralph approaches jack to inform him that they need his help building shelters, not going hunting. “And they keep running off…” “Except me and my hunters…” (50) Here we see that ralph and jack do not get along because jack feels that since he is out hunting all day, he doesn’t need to contribute anything else to the group. * The littluns speak out of line with out the conch. * Conch is broken Body paragraph 3: evil destroys and corrupts the naturally innocent * Humans are naturally born as innocent beings, but when exposed to the society, they also face the risk of being harmed and corrupted by the societal settings they live in. During the coarse of the novel, there are subtle changes that take place in the behavior of the boys’.
In the final chapter the hazard uncontrolled fire that Jacks hunters made to kill Ralph is what led to their survival “we saw your smoke” (201). When the navy officer first encounters Ralph he does believe that they could be the only ones on the island. When he is finally convinced, he assumes being on the island was just “fun and games”(200), not knowing the horrors that took place on the island. When the rest of the kids come
They start doing diminutive things like not using the coconut shells to carry drinking water, not watching the fire, speaking without the holding the conch at meetings and how there was a desire to hunt. They all wanted meat from the hunters, although there were numerous fruits on the island. Golding implies how the boys were acting like animals by their dancing and chanting of “ ‘Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’ ” (187).
Spill her blood” (96). Jack becomes obsessed with hunting and has control over the boys because of their fear of the beast. So when told to kill the pig, they’re loyal and do so.
