How are piggys glasses a symbol? what idea do they represent?

In Chapter 4, Jack breaks Piggy's glasses when he hits him. At this point the glasses symbolize both Piggy's ability to reason and his dependency or weakness. Right after this, Ralph takes Piggy's glasses (what remains of them) to restart the signal fire.......... this angers Jack because the glasses have now become a symbol of power.
