When a person is a member of a fairly simple and stable society, one can state that any member of this society would not engage in types of violence that are only present in unstable and complex societies.

The boys on the island, that are without any kind of adult influence, are considered good people but have been affected by bad decisions.

In the novel Lord of the Flies,William Golding shows that when one is faced with the necessity of survival and savergery that overtakes the society through internal conflics (man vs man, man vs. self, man vs. society), to show that desperation can cause one to make irrational decisions.
