In chapter two, Piggy reveals that he is a logical, sensible individual during the assembly by accurately describing the boys' situation and attempting to solve the issue regarding the "beastie" pragmatically. Piggy's insistence that Jack obey the conch and not interrupt others while they are addressing the group reveals that he values democracy and organization. When the boys rush toward the top of the mountain in the middle of the assembly, Piggy chastises them for their adolescent behavior, which reveals that he is mature and intellectually more developed than the other boys on the island. On the top of the mountain, Jack snatches Piggy's glasses from his face, and Piggy yells in vain but does not recover his specs. Piggy's reaction to Jack's offensive behavior reveals that he is defenseless and vulnerable. He also illustrates that he is easily offended, when Ralph dismisses his lecture and Jack continually interrupts him. Piggy's refusal to physically challenge Jack illustrates that he is weak and cowardly. Piggy also reveals that he is a proud English boy, who values civilization and order above everything else.
