Simon= he understands whats going on and attempts to stop it. This leads to his death.
Jack-the leader of the "tribe" he goes mad attempting to destroy the beast-which leads to him becoming the beast incarnate.
In the same way that the boys were marooned on the island, adults have forced adolescents into a world of their own: high school.
Teachers and administrators are only concerned with keeping kids on the premises, and don't care what kids do to each other.
The resulting culture is logically, brutish, petty, and barbaric.
Few have any regard for their future. (The kids on the island have don't take care of their rescue fire)
The only people with any sense of reason, the nerds, are either completely ignored or overtly persecuted (Ralph, Simon, and Piggy).
In this world, there are no consequences for your actions. People are free to harm as they please, because the only authority present does not care what kids do to kids, only what kids to do teachers and school property.
The real message in the Lord of the Flies was that adolescents, left to their own devices, are naturally inclined to cruelty, destruction, and savagery.
Lord of the Flies is mandatory reading for most high school students. I don't believe it was a coincidence.
Piggy= rationality, intelligence, civilization
Ralph= order, law, civilization
Simon= spirituality, wisdom
Roger= sadism, cruelty
Jack= savagery, pride, superstition, etc.
These are just to name a few.
Though the name Lord of the Flies is the name of Satan, in this book it can be interpreted as many different things. One of them being the sow's head, another (in Golding's view) is the darkness in man's heart (savagery).
