In a interview, he said, In Lord of the Flies, the optimism is more covert. Jack was the first to make himself heard. If people were, evil than the world would be in war at all times and there will be no reason to set up a government.
The fire that breaks loose on the mountain symbolizes the uncontrollable savagery that soon befalls the stranded boys. When he understands that the beast resides in them, he takes the ultimate risk.
Though he lost his hold on the boys he still had his social intelligence, and even some natural intelligence of his own to rely on. In the book lord of the flies William Golding showed how children no older than 12 years old and no younger than 6 years old acted when left alone for to long on an island.
