Democracy vs Dictatorship
A dictatorship is the complete opposite of freedom. Many will not want one person in power because they gained their power in forceful ways. A dictator would not care about the need or wants of his people, though would take care of what he/she wanted at all times.
Jack's Group- "Iv'e called an assembly because of a lot of things. First, you know, we've seen the beast...." This shows how Jack is the dictator himself because he took the conch from the leader of the group (who was appointed by the people, for the people) and has asserted himself to power.
Ralph's Group- "I'm chief because you chose me. And we were going to keep the fire going. Now you run after food..." This shows that Ralph is being assertive to Jack and that Ralph really does have the best intentions for the people whether they realize now or not. Also, he was chosen by the people themselves to be a 'guide' to show people how to survive and become/remain civil with one another.
