Lord of the Flies

By Joe Merlina

Ralphs Group

Ralphs leads his tribe like a direct democracy because he lets the people in his group decide what to do. Direct democracy is a form of democracy in which people decide (like voting poles) policy initiatives directly. This is how Ralph controls his tribe he lets the members vote.

Jacks Group

Jack leads his tribe like a totalitarian government. Totalitarianism is a political system in which the state holds total authority over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life wherever possible, and this is how Jack controls his tribe.

How i would lead my tribe

I would lead my tribe like direct democracy because i feel like you should let the members in the tribe vote for what rules to have. This would be the most effective way to govern my tribe because you want the members in the tribe to vote on the rules because they are living there to and they should have a say in what rules should be implied as well.


1. Everyone must take action in an activity, such as getting food, building a fire, setting up camp

2.Do as you please as long as it is legal.

3.No one will be left out, we will change up who does what every week around the camp

4. Everyone will be in bed by 10Pm and wake up at 8am

5.There will be a huge bon fire everynight, excluding Sundays because that is the day when we prepare for the up coming week on who is doing what.

6. There will be a contest every Friday for the group who does the nicest job around the camp

7. There will be no making fun of anyone no matter what size, shape, race, age, or gender you are.

8. Integrity is everything, meaning we won't waste time.

9. We will vote on every rule as a tribe.

10. Everyone does equal work!

Have fun no killing others this is how we roll.

Current political example: Syria Civil War

This has effected the population by a lot of innocent people being killed, and a lot of people leaving the country. It has effected the land by it being totally destroyed. It has effected the government, the government is Syria is very weak now i am surprised that they even have a army now. "The Syrian government used violence to suppress demonstrations, making extensive use of police, military, and paramilitary forces." ( the Syrian government is being oppressing its people by using force by military and police) I think that no one will win in this conflict honestly I don't I think that most people will leave Syria and never come back.


Country affected by in fighting

During the end of the 1960's there were a lot of hate crimes against blacks in America. This affected the population by having black communities and white communities. Also by having colored only water fountains and white only water fountains. This affected the land when MLK was shot and there were riots all across the nation. This affected the government by everyone calling this a conspiracy against the government. Hate crimes against blacks are still going on in todays society.
