Lord of the Flies
Transcript of Lord of the Flies
'You're breaking the rules!'
Ralph summoned his wits.
'Because the rules are the
only things we've got'" (Golding, 91)! "But there was a stillness about Ralph as he sat that marked him out: there was his size, and attractive appearance; and most obscurely, yet most powerfully, there was the conch. The being that had blown that, had sat waiting for them on the platform with the delicate thing balanced on his knees, was set apart" (Golding, 22). Lord of the Flies What William Golding Teaches Us Both Jack and Hitler were not immediately the leader of everyone, they started out being only appointed a certain job.
They both had charisma, Hitler won the "Time Magazine's Man of the Year" and Jack attracted almost everyone on the island.
They both took over when the people were open to anything.
Both leaders lead by fear.
Hitler and Jack killed people to prove their power. Jack and Hitler Ralph was an ambitious boy who was first voted chief. People naturally gravitated toward his honest personality. Both Ralph and Roosevelt did not believe in using violence as a way to gain power. Jack and Hitler vs Ralph and FDR Jack Jack began by just being in charge of his choir members who he made into his hunters.
Jack and his hunters failed to keep the fire going due to being too distracted by hunting.
Jack killed multiple boys on the island like it was no big deal and caused a lot of destruction on the island.
The boys feared that if they did not follow Jack, that he would kill them.
For example, Robert and another boy say, "'He got angry and tied Wilfred up'...'But didn't chief say why?''I never heard him'"(159). Adolf Hitler Olivia Scott
Gracie Hancox Hitler began as just a regular soldier for Germany. He was known for his bravery on the battlefield.
He did not agree with the way that Germany was being run so he declared a new government. Although he failed, he did not give up trying.
He saw the Great Depression as a political opportunity for himself. The Germans were open to new options and leaders. He attempted to run for presidency against Paul Von Hindenburg. Although Hitler came in second, Hindenburg appointed Hitler as chancellor to promote political balance. Hitler eventually became a dictator and took all the power.
He created an army that in the end killed over 14 million people.
"Humanitarianism is the expression of stupidity and cowardice"
(brainyquote.com,2013). In this novel the two main characters, Ralph and Jack, have a struggle for power that proves to be too much for them to handle.
William Golding teaches that, in life, where there is power, there will be problems.
Golding also shows us when two different people want to be in charge there will be a fight.
He teaches that, people will not always agree with each other because everyone has different opinions on what is right, and what is wrong. Franklin Delano Roosevelt In November 1932, FDR was elected the thirty second president of the United States. He faced one of the largest crises in US history, The Great Depression. His campaign promised to provide relief, recovery, and reform in the economy. He had an activist approach and personal charm that helped him to win the election. Roosevelt was elected president three more times (serving almost thirteen years total) thanks to his charismatic personality and his efforts to end the Great Depression. "Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live." "Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough." (brainyquote.com, 2013) Ralph He led the group of boys with equality and fairness. Ralph believed that they must have rules and that getting rescued was their main priority. Unlike Jack, when Simon was murdered he felt remorse for what they did. He did not need to inflict fear to get people to follow him. Ralph and FDR Furthermore, Roosevelt and Ralph were both in power during extremely difficult circumstances. They made plans and acted for the best of everyone, trying to lead people to salvation. They were both chosen to lead because people were attracted to their good nature. Unlike Jack and Hilter, who lead with fear, Ralph and FDR lead with honesty. These groups of people are extremely different. Jack and Hitler feel no shame in killing people to better themselves, while Ralph and Roosevelt try to avoid violence at all costs. Jack used war paint for power, and Hitler used the swastika for power. On the other hand, Ralph used a conch for power and FDR used his words.
