How can you get power?
“Power doesn’t corrupt people, people corrupt power.”
~ William Gaddis
In books you can find that the themes and concepts in that read can relate to your life. In the book, The Lord of the Flies, there are themes present in the book that to real life. The first theme is the weak and the strong, [page 10] “He was old enough, twelve year and a few months.” The weak and the strong in the book show each characters power over the group. Ralph and Jack who are older and stronger are the ones leading the people even if what they are doing is not right. “We are on an island. We have been on the mountaintop and seen water all around. We saw no houses, no smoke, no footprints, no boats, no people. We are on an uninhabited island with no other people on it. " [Lord of the Flies, Chapter 2, Page 38] Ralph takes the charge and spits facts to the people. The weak and the strong in the book relates to the rich and the poor in modern day life. The rich people have more power because they are more pronounced in society. You don’t ever hear new about a person in poverty that makes a difference. It is not because lower class people cant make a difference, it is that other people don’t believe they can. It may be hard but you can be strong.
