After reading William Goldings ‘Lord of the Flies’, I think we can all agree he can write one heck of a book. I agree with Golding’s implication not only because it makes sense, but because I have many personal experiences that can be related to this. The reasons that lead me to agree with Golding’s message is how people enjoy breaking rules once out of supervision, how even the most polite and young minds can become aggressive and violent, and how children being used in ‘Lord of the Flies’ strengthens his implication. These reasons will be further explained in detail in the next few paragraphs.
My first argument will be on how people enjoy breaking rules once out of supervision. I will reference one of my past experiences of a geography class as an example. As soon as our teacher left the classroom for a few moments, everyone burst from their previous silent stature into conversation and cheers. Some of us would even turn off the lights, close the door that our teacher left open, ramble around the teacher’s desk. And no one would ever stop what was happening, because everyone was enjoying it. This geography class experience reminds me how even how excited I was when this conspired. People do enjoy breaking rules and being wild, because it’s in their nature to have this kind of fun.
My next argument is how even the most polite and young minds can become aggressive and violent. I am going to reference a character from the novel ‘Lord of the Flies’, Jack. At the beginning of the novel, Jack is a polite and kind boy who likes the idea of reinforcing the rules. Even after losing an election to become the leader of the group, he still did not pitch a big fit. But as the novel progresses, he becomes violent, aggressive, and evil. He does not show mercy as he violently tortures many kids and chases Ralph at the end of the novel. Polite, young, and innocent boys can turn out this way, as Jack proves in ‘Lord of the Flies’.
My third and final argument is...
