Aim To Kill Is throwing a ball in society today something a young boy would take for granted But say the boy throws a rock instead of a ball yet never actually hits anyone is that still all right Or may there be something rooted deeper Could a simple throwing motion take a life Or does it matter the mind behind it In Lord of the Flies by William Golding Roger a fairly docile and reserved boy suddenly with the switch of a light becomes virulent hateful and downright violent Detached from civilization and thrown into a world of savagery Roger has behind him all societys rules and consequences Before him are all the possibilities of murder The question is Will the possibilities become a reality Roger picked up a stone and threw it at Henry-threw to miss Roger gathered a handful of stones and began to throw themthere was a space around Henry into which he dare not throw here invisible yet strong was the taboo of the old life Round the squatting child was the protection of parents school policemen and the law Rogers arm was conditioned by a civilization that knew nothing of him Conditioned by a society by a civilization is the previous scenario possible As time goes on the boys on the island becomes less refined because there are no consequences to their action They are free to do things like throw rocks at boys and not be punished There are no enforcers of law no parents policemen no teachers But why cause harm to someone in the first place Roger would rather cause damage to a person than simply walk by It is the small rules on the island that hold the boys together As each little rule is broken the string that ties them together becomes weaker and weaker and will eventually break The taboo of old life is the only thing keeping order As time goes
