The plot represents contemporary society in a number of ways. Look around you, what we consider civilized behavior is challenged everyday. Gangs run rampant, and like Jack, gang leaders constantly recruit members of other groups to solidify their own.

In addition, we can also look at the system of government put into place by the boys, as well as the use of violence to achieve desired results.
