The boys aren’t mature enough to realize that they are stuck on an island, nobody knows where they are, and they are probably going to die there. All the boys other than Ralph, Piggy, and Simon are completely oblivious to the fact that they need to be rescued, or they will die. All the others care about is having fun, hunting, and acting like a little tribe of savages. Hunting is what’s most important to most of the boys. If Jack and his hunters would have been taking care of all of their responsibilities instead of just hunting all day, if they would have just been watching the fire they could have gotten off the island before anybody could get hurt, before it was a game of life and death.
They are threatened by him, and are scared to go on his property. They find Boo as a character for their amusement, and one with no feelings whatsoever. This is very childlike. Scout also had the immature habit of getting into fistfights that started by the slightest provocation. When Jem had told Scout to stop beating on Walter Cunningham, he asked why she was fighting him in the first place all Scout had to say in response was “He didn’t have any lunch”(Lee,22).

They have adopted the concept of ‘D&D’ which stands for ‘Deaf and Dumb’.
The battle was between the only good left on the island (represented by Ralph) and the evil of dictatorship. The boys had turned into lawless animals, and were going crazy. The boys were so uncivilized, one boy forgot his own name. “Percival Wemys Madison sought in his head for an incantation that had faded clean away”. Ralph had tried to have a list of names, but Jack didn’t even bother.
“I don't care what you call me so long as it's not what they used to call me in school. They used to call me Piggy!” (pg. 11) Right off the bat piggy was looked upon as one of the weaker boys, both mentally and physically. Piggy had it rough to begin with, but in a situation like this, it was to either be the bold or be crushed. Out of everyone in the group, piggy was labeled as an outcast.
Of course then Piggy was killed. This was another mistake because of many things; first of all, Piggy was a voice of reason for all of the boys on the island, even if they never really listened to him. He was very smart and resourceful. Without him the boys just became more uncivilized and ended up setting the whole island on fire to try and kill Ralph. It is also important to realize that you don’t just kill people because you feel like it, because in a civilized culture there are consequences for those types of
