Jack says that he and his hunters will provide food for those who join him.  He also asks, "Who'll join my tribe and have fun?" So Jack plans to rule by providing or withdrawing noursihment and fun.

Jack proposes that him and his hunters will provide food to everyone in the tribe. Jack tries to persuade the boys to join his pride by bribing them with meat and telling them that his tribe is "fun". Jack asks the boys, "Who'll join my tribe and have fun?" (Golding 150).

  1. Jack offers meat to everyone who joins his tribe; while he bribes them with meat, he also offers the boys “fun”. ‘“I gave you food,” said Jack, “and my hunters will protect you from the beast. Who will join my tribe?” ‘Who’ll join my tribe and have fun?”’(Golding, pg.166). From these two dialogues, you can detect of Jack is bribing the boys with offerings of food, fun, and protection; he ultimately plans to rule by providing nourishment and fun.
