Chapters: Quotes: Leading to boys becoming Savage Chapter 1 They knew very well why he hadn’t: because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood (golding 31). Jack fears killing the pig in chapter 1, this is a fear he overcomes as he sheds his civilization and morals and adopts the way of the “savage” after not being able to stab it only makes him more urgent to prove himself by being overly savage Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Startled, Ralph realized that the boys were falling still and silent, feeling the eginnings of awe at the power set free below them.
The knowledge and awe made him savage ( golding 44). The fire that breaks loose on the mountain, it symbolizes the uncontrollable savagery that soon becomes the stranded young boys. Just like the savage fire kills the boy with the birthmark, the boys’ savagery ways and un civilized actions kills others. Chapter 4 Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Bash her in (golding 75). Almost if Jacks way to prove himself to the others on the island especially Ralph, Jack and his hunters start a gruesome chant that follows throughout the novel into their ransformation to savagery.
Chapter 5 “What would a beast eat? ” / “Pig. ” / “We eat pig. ” / “Piggy! ” (golding 83). The boys are still afraid of a rumored “beastie” roaming the island. The fact that the beast eats pig is very significant and symbolic. The beast of who they speak is the boys or the evil within/inside the boys. It is the boys who kill Piggy you find out later in the novel. The boys sacrificed a pig to the beast you could say the beast does eat pig, metaphorically speaking. Chapter 6 But a sign came down from the world of grownups, though at the time there was no hild awake to read it.
There was a sudden bright explosion and corkscrew trail across the sky; then darkness again and stars (95) this comes immediately after Piggy hopes for a sign from the adult world to straighten things up in their world. This is the sign: a plane is shot down and a parachutist, (dead) falls from the sky, is dragged up the mountain, gets stuck in a tree, and becomes the beast that scares one of the little uns. Golding saying, the adults, who are at war, are no less savage than the boys are. Chapter 7 … ir much too long, tangled here and there, knotted round a dead leaf or twig; clothes, worn away, stiff like his own with sweat, put on, not for decorum or comfort but out of custom; the skin of the body scurfy with brine (golding 110) The boys’ appearance has become less and less civilized and socially acceptable shredding their ways as the novel progresses. Their outward appearance is a reflection of their inward state at the moment, becoming less civilized and more primitive not caring Chapter 8 I’m warning you. I’m going to get angry. D’you see? You’re not wanted.
Understand? We are going to have fun on this island! So don’t try it on, my poor misguided boy, or else– (golding 143) Simon is having a conversation with a pig’s head on a stick. The importance of the quote goes beyond the boy losing his mind. Simon represents everything that is good and logical he represents order and civilization his thoughts about what the boys do yet he stays quiet. The Lord of the Flies (the pig’s head) represents all that is evil. The two cannot coexist with eachother. Chapter 9 “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood! (golding 152) Simon rushes towards he group determined to tell them the beast is nothing but a dead body that feel from the sky from the fght above them. However, the boys are so deep into their tribal dance and the thrill of reenacting the hunt and turn on Simon thinking simon is the beast This repeated chant echoes the chant from chapter four during the pig hunt.

He took the shell caressingly with both ands and knelt, leaning against the trunk. (golding 155) In the beginning of the chapter most of the boys have Joined Jack leaving only Ralph and Piggy on the beach with some little’uns, with Sam and Eric gathering some wood. The conch was once a symbol of authority and civilization for the boys, but now it has now become meaningless to some.

Though the boys are becoming more savage throughout the novel Ralph still clings onto civilization and order.
Chapter 12 .. Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy. (golding 209) Ralph has been rescued from death, by the appearance of the officer; he weeps not for Joy, but to sadness from what has happened on the island.

Is the Increase in Surveillance Cameras in Public Places a Positive or Negative Thing?
The use of surveillance cameras in public is currently on the rise with most people believing that it a good idea while others are against it. Most people who oppose the use of surveillance cameras in public areas claim that it undermines individual’s rights to privacy. However, the question is would such people live to maintain their privacy or safety? I believe that surveillance cameras should be increased further in the public areas as they enhance security which is helpful to various groups including individuals and the government. According to Takagi, Amemiya & Shimada, (2020), the use of surveillance cameras increases security in public places. The cameras enable a wide area to be monitored to avoid the spread of crime. The cameras can be installed in areas known for heavy criminal acts so that they can identify the criminals and have them pay for their crimes.
The use of surveillance cameras in public areas should be increased as they help in reducing crime in such areas. According to Ashby(2017), surveillance cameras are of great value to law enforcement and prosecution officers in accomplishing their tasks. Specifically, the recordings obtained from surveillance cameras are used as evidence in court during prosecution. With the images of a suspect being visible in the cameras, it is easy to prove their guiltiness thus making the court proceedings take less time than expected. The surveillance cameras in public also help protect and preserve wealth by eradicating criminal acts. With increased surveillance cameras, few people will be daring to conduct criminal acts like most of them will avoid being caught. Consequently, this helps in saving people from encountering losses caused by criminals. Therefore, increasing the use of surveillance cameras in the public is very beneficial. Although it has some disadvantages, the benefits outweigh them and thus should be used more.
