Introduction

Discuss the relationship between weakening constraints of civilisation and the increase of bloodlust on the island. Who or what is responsible for this? In this essay, I'll discuss the relationship between the weakening constraints of civilisation, and the increase of bloodlust on the island, and thus show who or what is ultimately responsible for the increase of bloodlust. In my opinion the relationship between the weakening constraints of civilisation and the increase of bloodlust, is that the lack of civilisation contributes to the increase bloodlust. This is because if there is no civilisation, which is basically rules, people tend to think that there is no one to penalise them and will do whatever they want. Therefore, if we have a look at what leads to the weakening of civilisation, we can find out who or what is responsible or contributes to the increase of bloodlust on the island. ...read more.

Middle

Before this, everyone followed rules (well they didn't really but at least they didn't kill anybody), because they thought that they would get back into the safety of civilisation. This all changes after the plane goes past, and everyone thinks that there is no hope of getting rescued, and everyone feel that there is no need to follow rules that are from civilisation. Therefore we can say that isolation leads to the weakening constraints of civilisation. However we must not assume that the adults are responsible for the increase of bloodlust, although they contribute to it. We need another ingredient in the equation for to make the increase of bloodlust, which is a person with an evil intent. This is because bloodlust is something malevolent, and savage, so therefore you need an evil character to lead the group who are confused, into doing evil deeds. ...read more.

Conclusion

However we cannot say the Lord of the Flies is responsible for the increase of bloodlust. We must say that the dominance of Lord of the Flies is the cause for the increase for bloodlust. This is because as explained by Lord of the Flies, he is a part of everyone (which means that everyone has a bit of a devil inside them). We have looked at how weakening constraints of civilisation has contributed to the increase of savagery on the island. And by looking at what leads to the weakening constraints of civilisation, I have come to a conclusion that 3 things are responsible for, or at least contributes to the increase of bloodlust on the island. They are the adults, or lack of them, the isolation, and ultimately the devil, which is the Lord of the Flies. ...read more.
