Lord of the Flies

Final Project

Different Governments:

Dictatorship- one person is in control of the whole country, supplies, resources, etc.

  • Jack's tribe.
  • " 'I ought to be chief' said Jack."

Democracy- one person is voted to be in charge yet takes suggestions from the group

  • Ralph's tribe.
  • "There’s another thing. We can help them to find us. If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire."

My Government:

I would pick a Miacractic government. I believe everyone should have a say in what is going to affect them. I also believe everyone has good ideas and suggestions and should be able to express them because they might be a better choice than what we decided.

The Reform War

The war was between the Liberals and Conservatives. The Liberals wanted a federalist government, limiting the church and military influence in the country. The Conservatives wanted a centralist government. They wanted more control over the country by the church and the military.

The conservatives ended up losing the war yet the military present still existed for years after the war.

"The boys decide to elect a leader. The choirboys vote for Jack, but all the other boys vote for Ralph. Ralph wins the vote, although Jack clearly wants the position. To placate Jack, Ralph asks the choir to serve as the hunters for the band of boys and asks Jack to lead them. "

This quote shows the different groups and foreshadows the conflict that will conspire in the future.

The Syrian War

The Syrian protestors wanted more freedom from the Syrian government. After many nonviolent protests the protestors rebelled in armed tactics. This war is still ongoing with the Syrian government losing control over almost half of the country and around 40% of the Syrian population. This war has resulted in much distruction of the country.
