Types of Government
“Shut up, fatty!” This quote by Jack shows his attempt to have control over the other boys, with this remark directed at Piggy.
"Kill the pig, cut its throat, spill its blood" This is another quote by Jack showing how he is commanding his group.
"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." This quote describes Ralph and his use of the conch to give everyone representation.
"'Him with the shell.' 'Ralph! Ralph!' 'Let him be the chief with the trumpet-thing.' Ralph raised a hand for silence...'Who wants me?' Every hand outside the choir except Piggy's was raised immediately. Then Piggy, too, raised his hand grudgingly into the air." This quote shows how Ralph was elected to be leader by the other boys.
There will also be a form of law enforcement to make sure all the rules are adhered to and everyone survives.
English Civil War
"He's hunting. And he said we weren't to let you in." This quote by Robert is in response to Ralph asking where Jack is. Robert split from the group to follow Jack much like English citizens followed Charles I.
