He believes that if they want to find out what it is they should go towards it instead run away this one fact sets him apart from the rest of the tribe, it also gives him this fearlessness that none of the other boys have. When everyone is afraid to go back to Piggy and the littluns Simon volunteers: “Simon pushed his way to Ralph’s elbow. ‘I’ll go if you like. I don’t mind honestly’” (117). His fearlessness shines through and reveals that he is not afraid of the beast.
‘As if,’ said Simon, ‘the beastie, the beastie or the snake-thing, was real. Remember?’” (Golding 19) The previous quotation represents that Ralph wants to build shelters, because he knows that the kids are afraid—but all Jack wants to do is hunt. Would that have helped? We know that the boys themselves are the beast, but the boys don't. Maybe building huts would have helped them feel safe enough to keep Simon
John also wants to have good friends and have a sense of what it feels like for someone to care for him. The teenager is afraid of being a reject or being left, so the immature boy pushes people away before they have a chance to reject the lonely one.

The boy feels he is not interesting due to his parent’s lack of affection towards their son, so John, “Prevaricates for prevaricating’s sake” (25). John is always telling constant lies such as when he calls the operator, ‘”You can dial that number yourself, sir.” “No, I cannot.
If Atticus was like the men of Maycomb County, he would have let them lynch him however Atticus knew that it would be morally wrong to not protect him therefore he risks his own life for others. Atticus is also fair and wise as he tells Scout that “you will never understand a person until you consider things form his point of you, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” From this you know that he is fair and wise because he explains to scout that she shouldn’t ‘judge a book by its cover.’ Another point is that the children have full confidence in him as he knew when was the right time to move the furniture out of the house when there was a fire in the neighbourhood. Also, Atticus saves the rocking chair that Miss Maudie values the most which shows how thoughtful Atticus is and how different he is from the others. Atticus is very different from the men in Maycomb County because after the court trial, Bob Ewell spat on Atticuss’s face, threatened to kill him and called him names but Atticus merely took his handkerchief and wiped his face and let Mr Ewell continue to call him names.

This portrays that Osborne does not want to ruin Raleigh perception of war which is he believes it is like sport and he is “excited(ly)” about the raid. This shows that Raleigh hasn’t faced the realities of war unlike the other soldiers for example Hibbert. Hibbert in the precious scene displayed a breakdown which shows what war does to a man it traumatises him and how they have to put a brave face on and carry on their duty no matter what and also they don’t want to dishearten young Raleigh by telling him the truth because he is so keen. Trotter refers to Hibbert as “funny” this could be interpreted as Trotter judging Hibbert and believing he is cowardice like many people in that time period would have believer however in this situation I think Trotter is worried for Hibbert and feels empathy towards him To conclude Journeys end is purposely written in a manner that tension is slowly increasing throughout the play however Sheriff includes some comical interludes through the character Mason to show the realism of war that it would go from a lovely tea chat to bombs being fired everywhere. Also Stanhope’s character illustrates the difficulties of war and that alcohol for most people was the only escape of the nightmare they were
“Man perfected by society is the best of all animals; he is the most terrible of all when he lives without law, and without justice.” -Aristotle. Laws are made to protect people from themselves and others.The fear of punishment can deter people from committing crimes, and when someone breaks a law, they are put in prison, where they can do no more harm to society. When law is taken away, people will do whatever they please, without fear of punishment. I think we can all agree that civilization requires structure. People need to follow common rules and policies, or laws.
